    NO, NO NO! Emmas a great actress but she doesnt look anything like Ana steele. Lily collins should get the role. I can see Ana steele in her.

  • tasha

    OH HELL F- – -IN’ NO! She’s sooooo wrong for the part.

  • tasha

    I vote for Elizabeth Olsen. I think she could pull it off!

  • Monica

    Seriously what a way to muck up a movie,

  • Effy

    Why is this porn novel being turned into a movie?!

  • Fevi

    How about no.

    No. Just no.

  • Sunny

    I just don’t understand the hype with 50 Shades. It is the worst book I have read in basically forever. And it definitely makes me sad that it’s this type of book that is being hyped about in the media. The sex scenes aren’t even hot, they’re just stupid (unless if you think pulling a tampon out of a girl is sexy). I’m not usually judgmental, but after reading 50 Shades I did wonder if people enamored with it are even educated because it so poorly written, the plot was so predictable, I just don’t understand how anybody can enjoy it. And I am ashamed to say after reading the first book I bought the second and third ones thinking they would be better; it actually got worse and a few pages into the third book I finally got my senses back and stopped. I don’t think it’s true, but I hope Emma does not associate herself with such literacy crap.

  • Anne

    @Sunny: I read the reviews on Amazon and they were terrible. They say that even teenagers would not have written so poorly and that the “writer” repeats the same words countlessly.
    People who are into erotic books should try Delta of Venus by Anaïs Nin. She was a TRUE writer.


    No Emma. You don’t have to go down that low to have a good work. You’re great. You don’t need that role. Please turn that thing down. PLEEEAASSSEEEE

  • tena

    @Sunny: Clap Clap hun, i really dont know people think this is going to be a good movies.

  • Jenna

    Why is everyone obsessing over these books?? I don’t get it. And I actually hope that Emma has some sense and refuses the role if the rumors are true. She’s too classy for that trash!

  • tena

    @Jenna: yea i totally agree, going from Harry Potter to that i think i wonnt be the worst career movie and this books what ever people say wont last and is trashy.

  • tena

    @an: @an: nope your not hun, i wont not even read this and will not see the movie.

  • mariona

    NO, plis. She is not Anastasia Steele. Anastasia Steele is Kristen Stewart and Christian is Robert. Is the desire of the author.

  • karl

    emma and viking, yeah id watch it… taking of my pants in preperation…

  • leanne

    She doesn’t have the porcelain doll prettiness combined with edginess quality that I would expect Anastastia to have. She is too much on the straight and narrow, we need someone a little more alternative to bring the role to life. Alexis Bledel definitely looks the part- but I also like Emma Stone because she is very quirky and could pull it off well.

  • Grace

    It should be Emilia Clarke as Anastasia and Gosling as Grey, enough said.

  • Stephanie

    There is no way that she could pull off Ana. They are starting to tick me off with the picks for this film. They need underground actors who are raw and fresh. NO HIGH NAMED ONES! Come on seriously, this film has to be rated X or NC-17 because not many people would show their body parts like that for the big screen. If Hollywood ruins this book for me, I am going on a rampage of not watching anything for a year.

  • Youka

    Oh my god you’re kidding me right? Please no.

  • Ptanner

    PLEASE GOD YES!!!!!!

  • ana

    just wonder how many of these people trashing these books have actually read them — ?????

  • Susi

    no no nooooooo, please!
    The books are crap!

  • Ciridian

    At first I was hesitant but now I actually think that Emma will make a great Anastasia. It’s also a really great adult role that should put Harry Potter behind her.

    As much as I love Alexander, he’s too old for the part. Has there been any discussion about Chase Crawford? He could make an excellent Christian Grey….right age, just about the right height, model looks and the right demeanor to pull off the attitude. That I would like to see!!

  • Annemarie

    I DISAGREE. I swear Kristen Stewart is probably the only one that fits the most with Ana’s description.

  • Annemarie

    I AGREE WITH PUP!!!! MATT BOMER AND ALEXIS BLEDEL!!! Chrisitian Grey looks exactly like Matt Bomer in my head. Alexis Bledel fulfills all the requirements to become ana steele but…she’s too innocent looking..?

  • Anna

    Please NO!!! So the wrong person!

  • tena

    If this movie is a blockbuster then the world is sick, porn in a movie, why would hollywood make a movie like this, there is no romance in this book just sex,

  • MIA

    Of course…………….. NO

  • Frida

    NOOOOO, I don’t want Ian either. Matt Bomer is totally perfect!!!!
