Emma Watson’s having a really hard time shaking off the persistent rumours that it will be her who plays the female lead in the forthcoming film adaptation of E.L. James multi-million selling soft-erotic novel 50 Shades Of Grey.
She’s said she’s not going to be doing it before, but nevertheless reports have continued to link the former Harry Potter actress to the role. Clearly at her wits end, Watson took to Twitter to ask her fans “Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life.” After a series of replies that suggested her participation in the film might not be best advised, she followed it up by writing “Good. Well that’s that sorted then.”
According to The Independent, rumours surrounding Watson’s involvement have intensified after celebrity hackers Anonymous managed to break into the database of German film studio Constantin, who are producing the film, and allegedly found files that suggested that Watson had been attached to appear in it, as Christian Grey’s main love interest Anastasia Steele. However she’s among a number of names who have been linked to the role – many of whom have also flat out denied they’re doing. Back in December Keira Knightley told MTV “You know, I normally don’t like to give a definite about anything [but] I can definitely say [my next film] will not be Fifty Shades of Grey.”
