’50 Shades of Grey’ Movie: Mila Kunis Wants to Play Anastasia Steele

Filed in Gather Entertainment News Channel by on January 23, 2013 0 Comments

50 Shades of Grey movie casting options for the role of Anastasia Steele just keep expanding.

America’s Next Top Model alum Analeigh Tipton recently added her name to a list of interested actresses that already includes Lucy Hale, Ashley Benson, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Krysten Ritter, and Felicity Jones. However, news that she wants the role could be overshadowed by a recent report that one of the hottest stars in Hollywood wants the part.

Mila Kunis has often been listed as a favorite for the role of Anastasia Steele, but most fans have written her off since she doesn’t seem like she’d be up for such a raunchy part. Mila has proved that extremely sexual humor doesn’t bother her by voicing Meg on the animated series Family Guy and starring in the R-rated comedy Ted, but she’s a little prudish when it comes to shooting sex scenes—the closest she’s come to being nude is using nude body doubles in Friends with Benefits and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. However, she and Natalie Portman did share a pretty steamy lesbian sex scene in Black Swan, so maybe she’d be open to trying something new and daring.

According to The Sun, this is what the brunette beauty said about starring in the 50 Shades of Grey movie:

“There are times when you just want to do something fun and different, because you’re going to have a good time doing it.”

The biggest problem with Mila Kunis besides her reluctance to shoot nude scenes is that she might be a bit too old to play 21-year-old college student Anastasia Steele. However, Christian Grey favorites Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer are also a few years older than the book character that fans want them to play, and fan favorite Alexis Bledel is actually two years older than Mila.

Mila does have the wide-eyed, innocent look that so many fans picture when they imagine Anastasia Steele, but she also has that sexy, sassy spark that’s needed to tame a troubled and tortured soul like that of Christian Grey.

So would you like to see Mila cast as Ana?
