Ever since the announcement of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie, rumors have been flying about who will be cast in the leading roles. On Sunday, March 17 E! Online reported that actress Emma Watson was not cast in the upcoming film, despite reports that she had landed the role of Anastasia Steele. Watson used her official Twitter account to set the record straight about the false reports, after a document stating her involvement was posted online last week.
"Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life," tweeted Watson, along with a separate tweet with nothing but a question mark. Watson later tweeted, "Good. Well that's sorted then." Her last tweet on the subject was a smiley face symbol.
Watson is the latest actress to debunk rumors about being cast in the highly anticipated film, after Mila Kunis denied any involvement in the project to the press earlier this year. The film is the first in the trilogy by E.L. James and the screenplay is being written by Kelly Marcel. "Fifty Shades of Grey" does not have a set theatrical release date or anyone attached to play the leading role of Christian Grey.
Watson is well known for playing the intelligent muggle-born witch Hermoine Granger in the "Harry Potter" films. The actress most recently appeared in the Sophia Coppola film "The Bling Ring" which will be released this summer.
