’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Alexandra Daddario Talks Playing Anastasia Steele

Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on October 24, 2012 0 Comments

50 Shades of Grey movie favorite Alexandra Daddario has finally opened up about being one of the most popular picks for the role of Anastasia Steele, a college student who gets schooled in the fine art of BDSM.

Right now, Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel seems to be the biggest Ana favorite, but Alexandra could continue to gain the support of more and more fans as they notice that she also has stunning blue eyes that are a little too big for her face (this is one of Ana’s most important physical traits).

Like most celebs who have been asked about starring in the 50 Shades of Grey movie, Alexandra Daddario didn’t give a definite answer when she was asked if she’s interested. According to Wetpaint, she says that she hasn’t read the books yet, but that “it’s really flattering” and “awesome” that she’s one of the fan favorites for the film. She obviously has some idea of the online casting battle going on between Fifty fans, because she said this when she was asked about who should play Christian Grey:

“I love Alexander Skarsgard; I love Matt Bomer. Really anyone. There are so many talented, great people out there.”

Alexandra should be a big supporter of Matt Bomer since she worked with him on the TV series White Collar, and Matt definitely needs all the support he can get if he wants to win the role of Christian. Right now Ian Somerhalder seems to be the fan favorite, and Alexander Skarsgard is also racking up quite a few votes. So if Matt wants to beat out all the actors known for playing bloodsuckers, perhaps he needs to work on scoring a vampire role ASAP.

Even though Alexandra has two top picks for the movie, she did offer Matt a little extra support by shooting down American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis’ claims that he can’t play Mr. Grey because he’s gay. She said that Matt plays a very convincing straight man on White Collar and that she doesn’t think that sexual orientation should figure into whether someone gets a role or not. It certainly hasn’t stopped straight actors like Sean Penn, Tom Hanks, and Heath Ledger from playing gay characters, and gay actor Rock Hudson definitely made the ladies swoon by romancing Doris Day in a series of popular movies.

If Alexandra and Matt did get cast as Ana and Christian, at least they’d have a little experience shooting steamy love scenes together. However, if Alexandra hasn’t read the books, she might not be ready for period sex and butt plugs.

Right now, it looks like Matt has a better chance at scoring a role in the movie than Alexandra does—while she was working on the next family-friendly Percy Jackson movie, he was baring his bod by playing a male stripper in Magic Mike.

So could you picture Matt and Alexandra as Christian and Ana?
