The 50 Shades of Grey movie seems to get different frontrunners to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey every day, so fans are probably having a tough time keeping up with all the options that are out there.
Recently LOOK tried to be helpful by conducting a poll asking Fifty fans to vote on their favorites to play the whip-wielding billionaire. However, the mag didn’t pair up the resulting top ten list with actresses that could star as Christian’s sex slave. So which pairs would be perfect for the movie?
Matt Bomer finished on top of the list, and who better to play his Ana that blue-eyed beauty Alexandra Daddario? The two of them already played a couple on White Collar, after all.
Ian Somerhalder was the second choice. Unfortunately his real-life girlfriend Nina Dobrev has said that she doesn’t want to play Ana, so perhaps another cute TV actress who is interested in the role could star alongside Ian insteadÂ—Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale has said that she’d love to play Ana.
Alexander Skarsgard and Emilia Clarke would make a perfect pairing since they star on two of television’s sexiest TV series, True Blood and Game of Thrones, while Ryan Gosling and Emma Watson would make a more conservative (but incredibly cute) couple.
Number five finisher Channing Tatum should have no issue with stripping down in the 50 Shades of Grey movie after taking it all off in Magic Mike, but he won’t play Christian Grey unless his wife Jenna Dewan gets to star as Anastasia Steele.
Tom Hardy played a villain who wore a rather kinky-looking mask in superhero movie The Dark Knight Rises, so perhaps he’d have no problem playing with a few sex toys. His ideal Ana could be an actress who stars on a superhero TV show that features a Batman-like characterÂ—Katie Cassidy is rumored to be a favorite for the role. The daughter of former teen idol David Cassidy stars as the woman who becomes the Black Canary on the upcoming CW show Arrow.
Chris Hemsworth starred alongside Kristen Stewart in Snow White and the Huntsman, but author E. L. James has said that she doesn’t want K-Stew or Robert Pattinson in the 50 Shades movie. So perhaps the other Snow White, Mirror Mirror star Lily Collins, can play his Ana.
Channing Tatum’s Magic Mike costar Alex Pettyfer is another Christian favorite, but since he’s so young, he would need to star alongside a fresh-faced Ana. Perhaps The Secret Life of the American Teenager star Shailene Woodley would work perfectlyÂ—she has a good chance at getting the part since she’s allegedly E. L. James’ top choice.
Tom Hardy’s The Dark Knight Rises costar Christian Bale is an interesting choice to play Christian Grey since he’s way too old for the role, but he does have experience playing a billionaire with a secret. He would just need an older actress like 30-year-old Alexis Bledel to play his Ana.
Robert Pattinson finished last on the list even though James doesn’t want him in the movie. So perhaps he should be paired with another longshot like Anna KendrickÂ—her character wanted Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies, so maybe she’ll finally get him.
Surprisingly, new favorite Henry Cavill didn’t make the list. However, he definitely deserves a mention. His perfect Ana would be Emily Browning since Henry and Emily were Stephenie Meyer’s original picks to play Edward and Bella in the Twilight movies.
So which of these couplings is your favorite?
