Emma Watson Slams 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Casting Rumors

Emma Watson has shot down rumors that she will be starring in the upcoming film Fifty Shades of Grey.

“Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life,” the 22-year-old actress tweeted. She later sent out a tweet featuring just a question mark.

Rumors resurfaced that Emma would be playing Anastasia Steele after a hacker group posted documents suggesting she was attached to the project, according to Entertainment Weekly.

No one would take her serouisly in the role. The Harry potter series tainted her for such roles. Even Anne Hathaway had to wait several years before the princess stereotype roles ended for her.

You should totally do it, Jare! You were amazing as the “Red Queen” this past Halloween, so I’m sure you’d totally nail this “Anastasia” role! :)

Sorry but I thought this was the most boring book ever and I sure would not waste my money to see the movie. All the best to you fans.

I don’t know why everyone keeps saying to the actors in Harry Potter that doing those films have tainted them for future projects…? I mean, it might be difficult for people to think of them as anything else but their HP roles for a few years, but those movies were a success and everyone loved it. Not to mention, everyone involved in the movies (mainly the most notable cast members) are set for life with the amount of money they have made during that decade. If I were a part of the HP crew then I’d be very content not only that I’d never have to worry about money (at such a young age also), but because I was a part of such an incredible experience making eight fantastic films!

Nobody wants to do that movie because the book is stupid, and Emma is a smart girl.

LOL!!! EMMA’S THE BEST!!! Seriously though!! That movie will end any decent persons career!! Its tacky and the characters are extremely shallow.

@Josie: Um… she would NEVER even CONSIDER such a role!! Did you not read her tweet?

@Josie: Any actress who takes on the role of the pathetic “Anastasia” will never ever be taken seriously again as an actress!!

I actually see Nina D. And Ian S. in that movie.
Emma not so much.
Books are truly awful though.

She deleted the tweet

I swear Emma is like the coolest person out there. Only a D-lister (or someone who wants to downgrade to D- would consider doing such a role!

@Yep: No she didn’t…

Smart move Emma! It might take a while to get past the HP association but she’s moving in the right direction with Perks, The Bling Ring and Noah. She’s definitely too good for this rubbish!

I don’t think anyone should play anastasia or christian. These books shouldn’t be made into movies – They’re too ridiculous and nasty. Anyone who loves these books or is dying to see them made into a movie needs to get a life!

i prefer Justin Bieber for the role

Emma is a smart girl. I hope that she will be sensible enough and reject the offer of this horrible film. The book is a disgrace to all women and men

stop with ” emma is a smart girl shxt ” ok she won’t even consider taking the part . I loved the book so much , but do I think they should turn it into a movie , not really … It can be really good if they don’t pick stupid hollywood actresses to play the part !
she is smart ? that’s childish to say these things especially on twitter , that’s not professional , ok she hates the books . good . but picking a movie about the robbery of stars could not be considered as a smart move / or witches for that matter ! When she’ll get the carreer of anne hathaway or meryl streep //

I dont think Emma has been typecast at all, she keeps doing different things.

That said, I’m glad she’s not in the movie, she should be in good stuff.

@KissThis: oh so a book about vampires and witches is sooooo much better ;o

that’s the reason I respect and look up Emma W.

She’s smart enough to not act in this ****! This role is for a little-known actress who doesn’t dream about a serious career or a porn actress but not for the normal serious actresses.

Not surprised. No actress with any kind of career would go anywhere near this crap.

Willa Holland is the perfect Anastasia Steele. And Henry Cavill is the perfect Christian Grey. No one else come close.

@Denza: You are so gay to think that playing in The Perks is a step in the right direction.
