The rumor mill has been working overtime of late, especially concerning the film adaptation of E. L. James’s 50 Shades of Grey – notably, whether Mila Kunis will possibly be taking on the main role.
Nearly every actress in Hollywood, who is the approximate age of the main character (Anastacia Steele) that is, has been rumored to be considered for the part. A lot of speculation centered around Emma Watson’s possible involvement in the project, however those tongues have been silenced by the actress herself vehemently denying it.
Now, however, another burst of gossip has erupted, after The Sun quoted Kunis herself as saying that she would love to do 50 Shades. The exact quote, published by the tabloid, reads: “There are times when you just want to do something fun and different, because you’re going to have a good time doing it.”
It got fans of the book (all those who admit to liking it anyway) excited and everyone else raising an eyebrow at Kunis’s decision. However, that quote has since been refuted by E! News as being false. So, it looks like it won’t be Emma Watson or Mila Kunis. The mystery of who will have the guts to take on the role remains unsolved, but some other actresses whose names have been linked to the project include Anna Kendrick and Alexis Bledel. Best to learn from past experiences though, and take the rumors with a grain of salt.
