Kristen Stewart Too 'Weird' For 50 Shades Role, Says Grey Author

| Filed under: Film FlickersKristen StewartBookz50 Shades Of Grey

kristen stewart 50 shades weird casting

Hey now! That's not nice! To her credit, Kristen Stewart has worked really hard on hiding her awkwardness. She barely ever bites her lip anymore!

Oh, that's not what she meant? Our apologies, K-Stew.

As you might've heard, people are really invested in this 50 Shades of Grey book. It's sold a lot of copies, made tons of money, and caused just about everyone everywhere to speculate who should star in the leading roles when should the story be made into a film.

Naturally, the obvious choices (for some) are the actors who have already portrayed the muses of the tale on the big screen. Many are rooting for Kristen and Robert Pattinson to land the roles of Anastasia and Christian, but there is one person standing in the way of that wet fever dream…

E.L. James!

The author of the fan fic turned erotica turned best-seller was asked at a recent U.K. fan event if she would be cool with Stephenie Meyer's choices to be Bella and Edward taking on her kinky creatures Ana and Christian. Her response is … disappointing, as she shared:

“I think it would be too strange ! It would just be .. Uggh weird!”

We think… you're right.

And also, NUTS!

If we've learned anything, we know that Robsten = box office GOLD! Those two rack in MILLIONS! Millions UPON millions!

But millions you've got, dontcha James. We see how it is.

Can we still hold out for Alexander Skasgard? Or are all vamps off your short list?

    I think Emma Watson would be PERFECT!



  2. 2

    Gabriel Macht for Christian! After watching Suits I can't picture anyone else.

  3. Trish says – reply to this

    I am so sick of hearing that people think Alexander Skasgard would be an awesome Christian Grey. He's not HOT enough!! And he DOES NOT look 27.



  4. 4

    She said it would be weird, nowhere does she call Kriaten Stewart weird. Twisting words.



  5. 5

    Totally agree with Trish. But also sick of hearing that RobSten makes millions. Stephenie Meyers' BOOKS made millions. I would have watched almost anyone as Bella and Edward and every movie, I hear tons of people cringing at Kristen's lack of acting skills. Honestly, I think Selena Gomez would make a great Ana. She is just innocent enough but still can be sexy. My list for Christian is huge. I just hope they don't screw it up with someone who is too old or awkward.

    Tell you what there PEEREX, write your own book then you could have some input.

    Thank God! I can't think of a worse actress then Kristen Stewart. She is GOD AWFUL!!!! She ruined the Twilight movies.

  8. MsSkars! says – reply to this

    I think i love E.L. James with all my heart!!… She's so much more intelligent than S.M.
    a person with a brain would never choose K.S.!!
    She can be pretty but she is a terrible actress!! And the same for Robert Pattison!!



  9. 9

    Kristin Stewart is a prime example: girls stick with your education. She is stupid. Uneducated. Awkward. Self-conscious. Everything that's wrong with Hollywood and California! Get an education girls, and then kick ass! Then you have the power!



  10. 10

    I have NOt read the 50 shades of….EggShell! LOL I think that everyone has to be careful, once you dip your toe into the STD filled Pool of Dispair…it could stay with you forever! As for my Fav, Rob & Kristen, I think they have way too much class to stoop that low!



  11. 11

    I dont even know HOW they could make a movie out of those books?!? Unless its triple X.
    As far as Kristen Stewart, yuck, she cant act her way out of a paper bag..



  12. 12

    Okay so we all agree no KStew!!…who should play Anastasia? Maybe Elizabeth Olsen? Lucy Hale?



  13. 13

    Re: jennifer
    Really you twat. Then why are they so popular and why was she the HIGHEST paid youn Actress last year? She made $34 million last year alone and gets a huge cut of the profits. You're just jealous.



  14. 14

    Re: Indigogo
    Ahh STFU twat.

    The inspired choice would be to consider Carly Rae Jepsen for the role. If she can act, and shows the same vibrant personality that she brings in her music video and interviews, well, I think this is the girl for the lead role in 50 Shades of Grey and its sequel book adaptations to film. She looks young enough for the role, looking like a naive teenager, or early 20 something, but she is 27. The smart move would be to cast someone her age and have them play younger, for public relations purposes–yet her clean image and public confusion over her age will make her seem virginal. Stewart already has Twilight, and is a tweaker in real-life, so it would be smart to cast a newcomer such as Carly Rae Jepsen.



  16. 16

    She's got too much edge/mystery to be in this project. I would think that they are trying for a Carrie type from SITC…KStew is not that person.

  17. @mimitegegne says – reply to this


    17

    Matt Bomer IS Christian Grey . End of Story .



  18. 18

    Wow, another false headline from PerezHilton.com.

  19. asianmama says – reply to this

    for the love of god, please dont let kristen stewart ruin another classic. =_=" i just watched snow white and the huntsman, if it wasnt for the queen i wouldve gotten out of that horrible movie within 15 min. she was so terrible, she legit cannot act…that scene when she was dying it sounded like a pig snorting. omg it was terrible.



  20. 20

    Re: asianmama – lmao @ pig snorting. I think you must mean Perez..



  21. 21

    I'm sick of that upside down smile/scour she always seems to have on her face. As if she has anything to scour about.

  22. Redwine says – reply to this

    Whoever thinks Kristen Stewart is a good actress needs to rent a movie with an actress that won an Oscar for that movie. She is so stiff and anxious. She did ruin every single Twilight movie. Just watching her act makes me nervous. Seeing her in interviews is embarrassing. She needs to pick a new profession….she is making a lot money due to the hype from twilight. Hollywood hires the cash cows sometimes, not necessarily the best actress.



  23. 23

    I will never understand why ANYONE would think Kristen Stewart is a good actress. She's horrible, she makes me uncomfortable and there is absolutely nothing attractive about her. E.L. James is smart for not wanting her to be in these films instead of being blinded by the money she could make. Superior acting > materialism.

  24. crh1212212 says – reply to this


    24

    Both are SO wrong for both characters. Kstew would ruin the movie, like every other movie she has been in.



  25. 25

    It would definitely be weird. 50 Shades of Grey will make millions regardless of who the stars are, just as Twilight did.

    Re: LutotheLu – I totally agree with you about Gabriel Macht! He is the poster child of this freaking book. Harvey Spektor is Christian Grey FTW!



  27. 27

    Enough of Kristen and Robert! They already have the Twilight series to their name.

  28. susie says – reply to this


    28

    wow it would be weird? how bout its fucking weird that you wrote a horribly written twilight fanfiction. anyone google it, this book started of as a twilight fanfiction which than had the character rewritten so they could sell it as its own book.

  29. Maldwyn Dobbs says – reply to this


    29

    Kristen Stewart should not even think of doing this movie. She's too good an actress to need to do this kind of film.

    Re: EverybodyLovesIt – Yes! I think you're right.

  31. Juju says – reply to this

    Matt Bomer needs to play Christian. That's all.

  32. Ana says – reply to this


    32

    Re: asianmama – Did you seriously just called this books a classic? Just because something sells, it doesn't make it a classic.
    Classic isn't just about sales, it's about quality, academic interest, etc, etc, etc.



  33. 33

    Re: LutotheLu – I never thought of that, but now that you mention he is so Christian Grey

  34. Jess says – reply to this


    34

    Please Perez…get on the Matt Bomer bandwagon!! He is the perfect Christian!

  35. teresa says – reply to this


    35

    I like the idea of Emma Stone for Ana and Chris Hemsworth for Christian.



  36. 36

    I think this is a smart decision. I do not picture Kristen and Rob as Ana and Christian. I think it most likely needs to be two unknown actors.

  37. kirsty says – reply to this


    37

    Omg omg I love 50shades its amazing so addictive… I would love my very own mr.grey : ) I thinkthey NEED to make this into a movie it has taken over the world by storm… Also I think she would be a great choice to play ana steel but I'd love for iain aka damon from vampire daires 2 play mr.grey himself!!!

  38. Francis Reed says – reply to this


    38

    Emma Stone!

  39. erin says – reply to this


    39

    lol right, because 50 shades of grey is normal….lol jk i get what she means

  40. th3 supastar says – reply to this


    40

    Kristen is not only too weird. She's also ugly and can't act. I think Ian Somerhalder should be Christian Grey. I don't know who would be Anastasia.



  41. 41

    perez ur full of it…. NO KSTEW OR RPATZ



  42. 42

    James is a old cougar dreaming of Robert Pattinson, Kristen has no room in her twisted perverted world



  43. 43

    Re: MsSkars! – you are an Idiot and brain dead. James is a Pervert

  44. Joanne M says – reply to this


    44

    Ian Somerhalter as Christian. Emma Watson as Ana. BAM!

  45. jesse says – reply to this


    45

    Re: @mimitegegne

    Exactly what I said! Or Ian Somerhalder!

  46. jesse says – reply to this


    46

    Amanda Seyfried for Ana maybe..

  47. sus says – reply to this


    47

    Ryan Gosling is the perfect choice to play Christian Grey. It is as if it was written for him. He is sexy , strong, confident, and an excellent actor. As far as the female lead not sure yet but is too much for Kristen Stewart to pull off successfully.

  48. eshorty says – reply to this


    48

    Kristen and Robert would be HORRRIBLE actors for those roles. They don't resemble Christian and Anastasia at all; they had their role in twlight and that's it. It just doesn't work. I'm glad E.L James agrees :) .

    As for Emma Watson, idk. She is a good actress, i just think shes too young for the role. The girl needs to look 21-22 and have something special about her.

  49. Chloe says – reply to this


    49

    lol go E L JAMES!! I honestly was afraid she'd want kristen or robert to be her christian and Ana.. if that happened it's be a nightmare! As for Christian I believe she should have Jessie Pavelka play his role.. he is PURRFECT ;) As for Ana well come on and hit the streets!! There needs to be a bright new face hitting the big screen! Someone no one knows famously! You have a girl right here who wants the role more than anything! Ever since my friends read the book they told me i'd be the perfect Ana .. there needs to be open auditions!!!!!

  50. Jenenas says – reply to this


    50

    Evan Rachel wood would be PERFECT for the role of Anastasia !



  51. 51

    Katie Holmes ! as Anastasia Steele . That will give Tom a Heart attack

  52. Kathleen says – reply to this


    52

    Perez Hilton, Robert and Kristen are not by any chance equal to box office gold. The only reason why it became a box office hit is because the book were actually popular even before it came out to the theaters. People with good eyes or simply good tastes and knows real talent know very well that the main actors in the Twilight movies didn't give the characters any justice. A lot of the fans were just carried away by their obsessions of the books.

    Re: MornGlory – Katie Holmes is too old for the role

  54. tricia young says – reply to this


    54

    Re: EverybodyLovesIt
    Think emma watson would be a good kate



  55. 55

    Re: Jenenas – I think Evan Rachel Wood would be great as well!

  56. Jennd920 says – reply to this


    56

    No… Not them again! Even though I luv them both!how about Katherine McPhee & zac efron? Only if zac can play Christian well…. But I think they have the look for the part…. Just saying!

  57. seiuchii says – reply to this


    57

    Matt Bomer as Christian Grey please! Why is Robert Pattinson even considered as CHRISTIAN GREY?! I mean, sure it was a Twilight fanfic, but he is NOT Mr. Grey.

    But really, I'm really curious on how they'd even make this movie! It's so explicit, and it's really only about erotic SEX!

  58. ASDFGHJK says – reply to this


    58

    Kristen and Rob don't suit Ana and Christian. This doesn't have anything to do with their acting abilities. I don't care if they were the best actors in the entire world. They would NOT fit into the 50SOG world. And just for the record, this is a horrible series. I have no problem with the themes/content but the writing…. *facepalm*

  59. j98 says – reply to this


    59

    Ryan Gosling will be perfect!!!!!! Epitome of Christian Grey!!!!

  60. Amber says – reply to this

    I really hope this E.L.James Sh*t Boat tanks. The book sucks soooo bad. The woman really needs to take some writing classes. Even the sex was boring. Trumped up Harlequin crap, stolen off of somebody's elses idea.

    that awkward moment when an author writes a book fantasizing about 2 actors, then claims it's weird for them to star in the movie… what a liar. hahaha

  62. VB Rocks says – reply to this


    62

    NO VAMPIRES! Kristen is awkward. Pathetic actually. Grow up and embrace your craft or go hide under that Rick you can't seem to get out from!
    As for Fifty Shades: No Vampires - the cliche is too pathetic. No K.S., no I.S. (gag - he's so stupid), no A.S. (double gag - stupid & ugly).
    ALEX PETTYFER 1000%!!!!
    Go Alex!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm sick of all the losers hating on Kristen Stewart. Before Snow White and the Huntsman was released someone posted on a Deadline article about Dark Shadows that they knew someone who walked out of SWaTH. Either that person or another poster wrote that Snow White was the miscast film of the century. All terrible things to write before a film is to be released. I thought Kristen was good in Snow White and it's already made about 350 million in box office so the haters are losing in their endless campaign.

  64. Wenna says – reply to this


    64

    Kristen loves acting. She was totally committed to SWaTH and it shows. She has a good accent in SWaTH and she really committed to filming in cold Welsh Sea, riding horses, and doing the physical stuff. She also promoted the film by globe trotting throughout Europe and Mexico, doing endless magazine covers, doing endless interviews with journalists from all over the world. She got a lot of attention for her fashion choices while promoting this film. She is acting like a grown up. She's doing Cali next and then promoting a new fragrance for Balenciaga.



  65. 65

    Except for the eye color, everything about Anastasia is Bella/Kristen. Duh! So I don't get the author's comment about the weirdness to cast Kristen. Rob on the other hand is so not Christian in any way.

  66. Jessica says – reply to this


    66

    I really think that "Edward and Bella" are not the perfect match for the Fifty shades of grey cast. I think the perfect person for the role of Cristian is Collin Egglesfield.
