American singer/actress Selena Gomez has no desire to play Anastasia Steele in the film version of E. L. James’ steamy bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey.
Gomez said in an interview she is too young to portray the role in the erotic, bestselling novel. The 19-year-old celebrity admitted to partially reading the novel and said the role fits an older women, not her.
With Gomez already out of the running for the coveted role, Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, Kristen Stewart, and Emilia Clarke are being eyed to portray the role of a college graduate who is introduced to the world of bondage and kinky sex by a manipulative billionaire. Reports also said there is a slight possibility that Jolie will direct the film version of the bestselling, erotic novel.
Gomez will soon be seen in the film Spring Breakers as a bikini-clad thief alongside Vanessa Hudgens and James Franco. Whoever takes on the role of Anastasia Steele will definitely get a big career boost since the novel is selling like hotcakes around the world.
