The 50 Shades of Grey movie is one of American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis’ favorite topics to tweet about.
He recently made headlines by claiming that Matt Bomer is too gay to play Christian Grey, but luckily he’s seen the error of his ways and admitted that he was wrong (sort of).
Now he’s moved on to finding other ways to inject the movie into his tweets, including this recent gem:
“Love the idea that Paul Ryan could be Christian Grey despite (or because of) the Ayn Rand obsession. It works for both ‘characters’ Cool…”
Maybe Bret should start penning the screenplay for 50 Shades of GaltÂ—instead of using nipple clamps and vagina balls to woo his woman, John Galt would make her melt with a three-hour speech about objectivism.
So somehow the casting ideas for the 50 Shades of Grey movie have gone from the likes of Ryan Gosling to Paul Ryan. Perhaps it shouldn’t be that surprising that Bret Easton Ellis came up with the idea – the Paul Ryan Gosling “Hey girl” meme is a thing, after all.
Plus you know that conservative women (and probably a few non-cons) have been drooling over the shirtless photos of Mitt Romney’s VP candidate. And while he might not be into whips and chains, Ryan’s P90X workout sounds like some form of torture.
The shirtless photos and blue eyes have definitely done their trick as far as Ellis is concerned. Here’s what he tweeted about the Atlas Shrugged author that Ryan once adored:
“I have not taken Ayn Rand seriously since college but now in the desert looking at pics of Paul Ryan in a bathing suit I’ve changed my mind.”
Seriously, Ellis? You constantly diss Matt Bomer and drool all over yourself after seeing a shirtless Paul pic?
The author then proceeded to tweet some of Rand’s quotes, including this gem:
“Friendship, family life, human relationships are not primary in a man’s life. A man who places others first is an emotional parasite.”
Hopefully Paul really has renounced Rand.
But it really is a shame that the author isn’t around to get in on the new BDSM erotic novel crazeÂ—judging from the rape scene in The Fountainhead, she would have enjoyed publishing her more explicit fantasies about dominant males.
