“Like Really”: Emma Watson Shoots Down ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey Rumors’ (Again)

"Like Really": Emma Watson Shoots Down 'Fifty Shades Of Grey Rumors' (Again)

For those pervs hoping for some hawt Hermione action, Emma Watson has sad words for you today. Despite recent rumors stirring the the pot (filled with melted candle wax) that she might be taking the lead role in the erotic “Fifty Shades Of Grey,” that’s not gonna happen.

Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life,” the actress tweeted late Saturday night, putting paid to the hacker-spawned speculation over the last couple of days. But this isn’t the time time Watson has had to play down the persistent talk about her playing Anastasia Steele. Last summer, her name cropped up alongside Elizabeth Olsen as a potential wishlist contender and again, Watson had to play down the talk. 

“I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing. There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call. It was the same way with ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo‘ – I never even saw a script!” she said at the time. 

So, for all of you looking for a spicier side to Watson, you’ll just have to stick with your Harry Potter fan fiction for now.
