There have been rumors that Emma Watson could star as Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of E.L. James’ book trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey, and she’s now addressing those rumors.
The former Harry Potter star took to her Twitter page to shoot down the buzz surrounding her taking on the raunchy part.
Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life.

“Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life,” she first asked, adding a “?” and following up with “Good. Well that's that sorted then.”
In July of last year, Watson told EW“I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing. There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call.
So it’s pretty much official that Watson won’t be signing on for the films, and The Huffington Post reports the first film doesn’t have a lead actor, actress or director. The only thing that is definite is that Kelly Marcel has signed on as the screenwriter.
Who do you think should play Anastasia Steele?
