’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Anna Kendrick Asked If She’ll Play Anastasia Steele

Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on August 9, 2012 0 Comments

The 50 Shades of Grey movie has lost another Anastasia Steele favorite.

Elizabeth Olsen recently stated that she’s not interested in the part, while Emma Watson revealed that rumors that she’s up for the role are false. Kristen Stewart was originally a popular choice for the part, but then author E.L. James made it clear that she does not want Kristen or Robert Pattinson to star in the movie.

But since the book was based on Twilight fanfiction, some Fifty fanatics are still looking to cast a member of the Twilight cast as Ana—Nikki Reed and Ashley Greene have probably gotten a few votes. However, a Watch What Happens Live caller made it known that she really wants to see Anna Kendrick score the part.

Anna’s character was constantly getting overshadowed by beautiful Bella in the Twilight films, so you’d think that Kendrick wouldn’t mind getting to be the center of attention in the 50 Shades of Grey movie. However, when the Watch What Happens caller asked Anna if she’d like to star in the movie, she answered by saying that she hasn’t read the book. The persistent Fifty fan then proceeded to ask, “Who wouldn’t want to be tied up by a hot guy, right?” Shocked Kendrick could only respond by saying, “What?!”

Judging from Anna Kendrick’s response, it doesn’t sound like she’s enamored with the idea of bondage and other “kinky f**kery.” She also doesn’t seem to be a fan of starring in movies that call for her to film a lot of sex scenes. However, it’s not hard to see why she has people pulling for her to get the role of Anastasia Steele—she did prove that she’s a really good actress in Up in the Air, and she has the right look for the part.

So do you think that 50/50 actress Anna should give playing Ana in 50 Shades a shot or not?
