50 Shades of Grey movie favorite Elizabeth Olsen might not understand why so many women are into the erotic novel, but she does have a thing for guys who rock fifty shades of gray in their luscious locks.
The other Olsen sister has admitted to sharing Mary-Kate’s love of older men – 26-year-old Mary-Kate Olsen is currently dating 42-year-old Olivier Sarkozy, while Elizabeth said this about the men that she admires:
“My first crushes were older men. First Frank Sinatra, then John Stamos, then George Clooney. I’ve always had a thing for silver foxes.”
It’s not surprising that she developed feelings for John Stamos – she probably grew up watching the handsome actor on Full House since her twin sisters starred on the show. But luckily she’s not creeping everyone out by hooking up with Uncle Jesse – the 23-year-old is currently dating 31-year-old actor Boyd Holbrook. Elizabeth and the Hattfields & McCoys star recently worked on the movie Very Good Girls together.
So could the couple team up again to play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the 50 Shades of Grey movie? Boyd Holbrook looks like he could do dark and brooding rather well, and just like Ana, Elizabeth Olsen’s character starts out as a virgin in Very Good Girls.
They might seem like the perfect pair for the job, but unfortunately Elizabeth isn’t the biggest 50 Shades fan. According to Contact Music, here’s what she said about the book:
“All of a sudden, this book has become a sensation because the women reading it haven’t had access to this kind of thing before. I was talking to a guy who was making a joke about it, saying, ‘Clearly, these women just need to watch porn’. In a way, he’s right.”
However, while Elizabeth obviously prefers adult movies over erotic novels, she does see the bright side of women reading about BDSM. Here’s what she said about ladies’ newfound love of getting tied up and talking about “kinky f***kery:”
“Apparently rope sales have skyrocketed because women who’ve read the book are really getting into bondage, which is kind of great. It’s such a taboo for women to actually discuss sexuality without the help of Cosmopolitan.”
So at least Elizabeth thinks that bondage is “great.” She proved that she’s a very talented actress in Martha Marcy May Marlene, in which she appeared nude. She’s also starring in the Oldboy remake, which will tackle another very challenging sexual taboo. Because of her acting experience, the 50 Shades producers should at least take a shot at getting her to sign on by sending her a copy of the screenplay when they finally start casting.
So can you picture Elizabeth and Boyd as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey?
