Emma Watson slams 'Fifty Shades of Grey' casting rumors on Twitter
For fiction fans hoping to have their “Harry Potter” heroine disrobe for the “Fifty Shades” film trilogy, sorry – it’s probably not happening.
After reports from hacker collective Anonymous this week claimed they had stolen documents from German studio Constantin Film’s servers proving Emma Watson was attached to star in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the actress slammed the report on Twitter.
“Who here actually thinks I would do '50 Shades of Grey' as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life,” the 22-year-old beauty posted on Sunday, of the buzz claiming she’ll play Anastasia Steele in the highly anticipated film version of E L James’ steamy novel.
After hundreds of fans responded (most saying they don’t believe Emma would ever sign on for the erotic role) and the Tweet was re-Tweeted nearly 35,000 times, the actress responded.
"Good. Well that’s that sorted then,” she wrote, later adding a smiley face.
Additionally, on Friday, “Fifty Shades” author E L James also took to Twitter to address the rumor, writing, “There have been no casting decisions made about Fifty Shades.”
