Is the Emma Watson ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ connection still a possibility? .
The ‘Harry Potter’ actress has previously denied having any involvement in the movie after rumors surfaced in July suggesting that she was in line for the role of the sexually submissive Anastasia Steele. Now she says that although she hasn’t been approached for the movie, she would still consider playing a part in it given the chance. ‘If there’s interesting character development and there’s an interesting story then I would consider it - but I haven’t been offered anything’, she said according to The Sun. She does, however, admit that she hasn’t actually read any of the best-selling sex novel by EL James: ‘The thing is I haven’t read any of the book because I haven’t read a script so it’s quite difficult to know what I’m turning down potentially but I hear it’s quite raunchy.’
Only a few months ago did the 22-year-old told Entertainment Weekly that she hadn’t been asked to appear in the movie: ‘I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing’, she said. She goes on express her surprise at how many movies she has been rumored to appear in without ever having had a phone call. ‘The thing is I’m not going to go out there every time someone attaches me to a film to say no or release a statement’, she had remarked.
