The frenzy for all things Fifty Shades Of Grey continued this week as it was announced there would be a clothing line based on the hugely popular book. Yes, really. And now rumours are swirling that Shailene Woodley is the actress of choice for the role of Anastasia Steele in the film adaption of EL James’ novel.
The young actress is apparently the author’s choice to play the lead role and who can blame her? The 20-year-old starlet rose to fame after starring alongside Hollywood hunk George Clooney in The Descendents and she took awards season by storm, cracking out Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana stunners – as well as those five-fingered shoes.
Although she didn’t pick up an Oscar (this time), Shailene did win the Best Breakthrough Performance category at the MTV Movie Awards earlier this year and she’s fast becoming our latest style crush, appearing in ASOS magazine in May showcasing her carefree style. Who else can look so elegant whilst posing on a pair of pink rollerblades? Not us, that’s for sure.
Speculation about who will bag the coveted lead roles has been swirling ever since the book hit best-seller success. As Grazia Daily previously reported, Emma Watson was considered for the part but fans of the Brit actress were distraught at the prospect of seeing the angelic Hermoine Granger getting kinky. We reckon rising star Woodley would do a marvellous job, but what say you? Could she do Ana justice? And, most importantly, who-oh-who will play Christian Grey? Now that Robert Pattinson is looking fitter than ever, we’ll be pinning our hopes on him…
