Emma Watson has been the subject of rumors when it comes to the upcoming ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ movie. Reports have been suggesting that she may have already been cast as the racy Anastasia Steele. However, this Hollywood actress wanted to set the record straight. She took to Twitter on the night of Saturday, March 16 to debunk the speculation.
“Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life,” tweeted Watson.
According to a People report dated Monday, March 18, “The online hacking group Anonymous is reportedly to blame for fanning the erroneous casting news. It published online documents that said came from the internal server of the German Constantin Film studio, suggesting that Watson, 22, was up for the sexy role as lover to the fictional billionaire Christian Grey.”
If all of this information isn’t enough to convince ’Fifty Shades of Grey’ fans that Watson hasn’t been casted for the role, even author E L James addressed the false information with a tweet of his own.
“There have been no casting decisions made about ’50 Shades of Grey,” the author of the erotic novel tweeted.
Watson has been dealing with this topic since last July. After being mentioned as a possible candidate for the role, she told EW.com, “I haven’t read the book, I haven’t read a script, nothing,” she insisted.
Saturday night, she simply obviously decided that she had enough of being a 'Fifty Shades of Grey' topic of discussion.
