'Fifty Shades' Screenwriter Calls Movie 'Too Painful to Watch'

Fifty Shades of Grey screenwriter Kelly Marcel just shared a big revelation about herself!

During a recent podcast interview with Bret Easton Ellis, the 41-year-old screenwriter also opened up about being unhappy with the final film and her poor relationship with the book’s author E. L. James

“I very much wanted to do something different with the screenplay, and when I spoke to the studio and the producers and made that quite clear, they were very enthusiastic about that and kind of loved the things I wanted to do. When I delivered that script was when I realized that all of them saying, ‘Yeah, absolutely this is what we want,’ and, ‘You can write anything you like and get crazy and artistic with it’ — that was utter, utter bulls–t.”

She added, “My heart really was broken by that process, I really mean it. I don’t see it out of any kind of bitterness or anger or anything like that. I just don’t feel like I can watch it without feeling some pain about how different it is to what I initially wrote.” Listen below!
