The 50 Shades of Grey movie seems set to become a big blockbuster, making characters Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey two of Hollywood’s most coveted roles. Emma Watson recently tried to secure a spot on top of the movie producers’ list of Ana favorites by saying that she’s open to doing nude scenes.
The Harry Potter actress has denied being approached to play Ana, but she did tell Hello! that it’s “exciting” to see her name attached to the 50 Shades of Grey movie. She also dropped a hint that she’s interested in starring in the film by saying this about her willingness to shoot nude scenes:
“I've been saying since I was 16 that if it's the right role and important for character development and the story, then of course I'll do it.”
Emma Watson might be open to signing Christian Grey’s sex contract, but Hermione fans might have a hard time seeing her chained up in his Red Room of Pain.
Emma could also have some stiff competition when it comes to winning the honor of playing Anastasia Steele since many of the other fan favorites for the part have shown that they’re comfortable filming nude scenes. Kristen Stewart went topless in On the Road, and Emilia Clarke’s dragon queen character gets naked in almost every episode of Game of Thrones.
Emma Watson’s competition for the 50 Shades of Grey movie could also include Emmy Rossum, who has stripped down in Shameless. But perhaps Emily Browning should be the biggest favorite for the role of Anastasia Steele. The alluring actress was Stephenie Meyer’s top pick to play Bella in Twilight, but Emily never auditioned for the part. Instead the star of the family film Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events went on to shock her fans by starring in the 2011 movie Sleeping Beauty, which is nothing like the Disney fairytale. The film actually feels a lot like 50 Shades since it’s about a bizarre sexual fetish, but instead of being tied up before having sex, Emily’s character is drugged so that she passes out. Needless to say, she was required to shoot a lot of nude scenes for her risqué role.
So do you think that Emma Watson’s first nude scenes should be in 50 Shades, or would Emily Browning do a better job playing Anastasia Steele?
