The 50 Shades of Grey movie just got one of its craziest casting ideas yet courtesy of singer Leona Lewis.
The sexy songstress didn’t suggest herself and One Direction singer Liam Payne for the roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey even though the two musicians have been using the media to flirt with each other. It’s probably a really good thing that she didn’t come up with this casting idea since some Directioners might not react so well toward the idea of Liam turning Leona into his own personal sex toy.
Casting the two singers in the movie might seem silly enough, but Leona has an even more insane idea for the 50 Shades movie – she wants Chris Brown to play Christian, and she thinks that Taylor Swift would make the perfect Anastasia Steele.
According to Capital FM, here’s what Leona Lewis said about her 50 Shades of Grey movie casting idea:
“For Christian Grey it has to be someone really hot and super smooth. Why am I just thinking of Chris Brown?”
Breezy might seem “smooth” to her, but he recently revealed that his love life is extremely rocky by confessing that he loves Rihanna and Karrueche Tran. And obviously some Fifty fans won’t want to see Chris tying up a girl and beating her with a paddle after what he did to Rihanna – his BDSM scenes might seem just a little too real.
If Leona likes bad boys like Breezy, Liam Payne might be out of luck. Liam comes off as one of the more responsible, mature members of One Direction, and he seems to be a fan of being in a stable, long-term relationship. Chris did date Karrueche Tran for quite a while, but obviously their relationship was anything but stable.
Breezy might be a terrible choice for the role of Christian Grey, but he’d probably have no problem playing a character with a troubled past. However, it’s really hard to imagine Taylor Swift playing his Anastasia Steele – she works way too hard to portray a good-girl image, so there’s no way she’d get anywhere near nipple clamps and butt plugs.
It’s a good thing that Leona is a musician and not a casting director.
