When a cover of Entertainment Weekly featuring Matt Bomer with the headline "Fifty Shades of Grey: The Wait is Over,” fans thought that the Whtie Coller star had been cast has Christian Grey in the film adaptation of the popular trilogy.
Much to some Bomer fans’ dismay, it turned out to be a hoax.
The creative fan had even went as far as to photoshop the headline “Matt Bomer talks about changing the white collar for a grey tie.”
One of the producers of the highly-anticipated film, Dana Brunetti, took to her Twitter account to confirm that the Bomer casting had been a hoax.
"All of the rumors on #FiftyShades are just that - rumors. No one has been cast in any role. We have to get a writer and director first,” she wrote.
According to E! Online, this isn’t the first time that a fake cover has been created that has conned fans into believing something untrue.
A cover had been created featuring Twilight star Taylor Lautner, which featured a cover that read “Out & Proud.”
The cover had featured a quote that they claimed was from Lautner, saying he’s "more liberated, and happier than I've ever been."
That turned out to be fake, just like the Bomer casting Fifty Shades.
