Remain Calm, But Emma Watson Could Be Cast As Anastasia Steele In 50 Shades Of Grey

Okay. Now panic. Emma Watson, everyone’s favorite unattainable girl next door who can easily pull off short hair, could be cast as Anastasia Steele in 50 Shades of Grey. According to New York Daily News via Showbiz Spy via rumor mills all across America, she’s perfect for the part and is currently in talks for the role.

NYDN tells us that she has just the right essence to play the role of a young woman discovering her sexuality by way of someone else’s penis.

The actress is the hot favourite to be chosen by producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti. The 22-year-old is said to have the right looks for the part, combining a degree of innocence with the acting skills to portray the young graduate who gets swept into a world of sado-masochistic sex with a kinky billionaire, Christian Grey, reports

So yes, our sweet, precious Emma could soon be getting down and dirty in the BDSM thriller movie that 10% of college-aged girls will regrettably go see with their mothers in theaters in a tragic attempt to bond.

“Oh, this will be fun,” Sarah says to her mom, “We’ll go see 50 Shades of Grey together this afternoon. Now that we’re both adults, we can participate in fun activites like this together.”  Her mom will smile adoringly at her and silently brag to all her friends about the close relationship she shares with her daughter. “Wait ’til the book club hears about this,” she’ll mutter to herself as she changes her Facebook status to “my daughter is my best friend.”

And later on, after watching 2 hours of graphic sex scenes between Hermione Granger and an Unidentified Christian Grey, Sarah will shuffle out to the car and be unable to make eye contact with her mother, let alone, speak to her. The two will drive home in silence, trying to interpret what they just witnessed and why they chose to witness it together.

Within a few days, things will go back to normal. Until Sarah buys her first apartment years later and her mother brings over 50 shades of grey paint choices — and the nightmare of that movie viewing experience begins again.

      Anastasia has brown eyes, not blue, Renee.

        Ana has blue eyes. She says it in the book more than once.

    • Cassie

      what is wrong wit you people? Ana has BLUE eyes, and there is such thing as contacts and Im sure a talented actress like Emma could pull off an American accent. I think she would be fine for the part. It would show shes not just lil Hermione Granger and she can ACT like timid yet sexually curious adult.

      She is so not Ana. Too young looking to be paired with any of the men being seriously considered as Christian. She looks like a high school kid and not a college student \ budding career woman. By the way, the books are not pornography. They are a love story with a lot of “kinky” sex with extremely mild bondage. Also not true BDSM. Look it up people!

        what linda? I am twenty and i look fifteen . like she has no control on how she she looks. i think she could be perfect. she looks innocent and she beautiful , she is very smart. i thnk you should give her a chance. you never know she could be perfect for “ana”
        we havent seen Emma as a grown woman. in any of her roles. i think this is a perfect character for her. Ana is inexperience,shy , smart, but she has a great sex drive. i see ana in emma watson. i think theres a couple of other girls that would be great for ana as well.

      Hahaha! “My daughter is my best friend.”

      This would SO happen.

      Emma doesn’t have to “be” Anastasia to play her. She’s an amazing actress, she could pull it off. After The Perks of Being A Wallflower I believe she could play anyone.
