‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Movie Casting: Emma Watson Wants In If Ryan Gosling Portrays Christian Grey [PHOTOS]
British actress Emma Watson may be magically working on for bagging the part of Anastasia Steele in the much anticipated "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie. Other popular actresses names have been reportedly turned down for the well-known female lead character in author E.L. James' novels from Alexis Bledel and Alexandra Daddario to "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart and Emilia Clarke.
According to the latest "Fifty Shades of Grey" casting rumors, the "Harry Potter" actress is once again being talked about for taking on the character of Anastasia Steele. The young and talented actress has been previously linked to a possible casting role before and Watson even confirmed that those rumors were not true.
This time, it was Emma Watson herself who initiated the interest of fans. In an interview with "STV.TV," Emma Watson said that she is flattered with the fans that are rooting for her as Anastasia Steele and the 22-year old actress would certainly want to be considered for the role. However, there is a catch.
Emma Watson stated that she would only be far more interested in the innocent role of Anastasia Steele if "Drive" actor Ryan Gosling will be cast as the billionaire Christian Grey. Watson's friend, Nina Dobrev, recently reported this news over the weekend.
Meanwhile, Ryan Seacrest also took to "Twitter" the news about Emma Watson taking on the role and he reaffirmed what Nina Dobrev said regarding Watson's interest in portraying the role. "@EmWatson told me that she'd be more interested in playing Ana in the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie if Ryan Gosling were to be Christian. #mugglelove," Seacrest wrote on Twitter. Would Emma Watson make a perfect Anastasia Steele opposite Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey?
Meanwhile, "The Perks of Being A Wallflower" actress did admit over the summer that she have not read yet the currently best selling erotic trilogy novels but it has recently changed in a short period of time.
"I haven't fully read the book just yet, so I don't know what I'd be signing myself up for. So I would have to get sent a script I guess. But it is always flattering that people are thinking about you for certain casting roles. You are in the mix for things like '50 Shades' so it's great," Watson said about upcoming the "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie.
