E. L. James' bestselling erotic "Twilight" fanfiction novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey," is getting a movie. It may seem like strange origins for a feature-length film, but it's really happening. And there are some big names being tossed around for the role of Anastasia Steele, a "pale, brown haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face" who agrees to trade her innocence for an explicit relationship with a troubled man. We asked the public who should get the role.
"Mean Girls" star Amanda Seyfried isn't on the short list, but two-thirds of respondents think she'd be perfect for the role. She's got those big blue eyes, that corruptible innocence, she's even got the brown hair on occasion. One commenter wrote, "Seyfried has this intensity that would be great." Another, "She's sexy in an innocent way, so I can dig it."
Another big-eyed candidate overflowing with innocence, "Gilmore Girls" star Alexis Bledel took a close second over Kristen Stewart. A fan wrote, "Amanda Seyfried has that innocent sexy thing going for her but she's too curvy and womanly for a role like this. The character is a girl exploring her sexuality." And Bledel has never been in a role like this before, which would only add to the effect.
Stewart is kind of the odd one out here, but there's a good reason she took third place. Essentially, "Fifty Shades of Grey" was inspired by Bella Swan, her character from "Twilight." It wasn't necessarily based on Stewart's performance, or even the character, but it did technically begin as fanfiction, and Ana was actually named Bella in the original version. Why not?
