Whoa! Who knew THAT many people wanted to read Christian Grey & Anastasia Steele's love story!
This week marked the 100 millionth sale of the 50 Shades of Grey books and that is a MEGA HUGE big deal!
E L James' book joins the ranks of Harry Potter, Sweet Valley High, and James Bond, among others as the highest selling book series of all time!
Oh, and it's right up there along with Twilight, which was the inspiration for Christian & Ana!
The world will happily gobble up every marvelous morsel of Jamie Dornan's deliciousness when 50 Shades of Grey hits theaters next year, but the iconic role comes with a price!
This shining young star might be one of Hollywood's seXXXiest and most talented studs right now, but he still can't be two places at once!
He's taking a turn on the big screen as Christian Grey, but — because of his involvement in that project — he hasn't been able to return to ABC's Once Upon a Time!!!
In fact, show runners revealed they were desperate for Jamie to return as the Huntsman, but he simply CANNOT make enough time in his schedule!!!
Executive Producer Edward Kitsis explained:
She wants it shaken - not stirred - and eXXXtra dirty!
But what we didn't know was how naughty she wants the movie counterpart to be!
Spoiler alert: super naughty. LOLz!
According to The Sun, the queen of all talk shows reportedly said:
DAMN gurl, you look like you've just seen a room full of ball-gags!
In honor of it being one year until its release, the 50 Shades of Grey movie's Facebook page has released the first official picture of Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele and the moment couldn't have been more perfect!
It looks like it's the moment that Christian, aka Jamie Dornan, presents Anastasia with his "sub" contract!
Hot & heavy stuff here people!
He's looking to lock Ana in to their relationship like the marketing team is locking us in with anticipation!
Can we fast forward to a year from now….please?!?

Oh gurl, just because you write another book, doesn't mean there will be another movie!!
Slap us with some handcuffs & call us intrigued!
E. L. took to her Twitter to answer a question from a fan which has incited the imaginations of her league of admirers!
We're almost more curious about this than about the Red Room of Pain! We did say almost…
And his name is NOT Grey!
The Italian real estate agent goes by Alessandro Proto and believe it or not, he has a couple suspicious parallels with the hunky fictional character - at least so he says.
Actually, even though Alessandro insists he shies away from the media like Christian, he is now opening up to explain his encounter with the now-famous author back in 2010 a year before her X-rated book was published.
The entrepreneur listed:
Dakota Johnson is truly mirroring her character Anastasia Steele's transformation in Fifty Shades of Grey…
From wide-eyed and innocent, to undoubtably sexy, Miz Johnson shows all shades of her personality in the March issue of Elle magazine!
Making her first major fashion mag cover debut, Dakota channeled her sexuality, revealing that she knew playing Anastasia would come naturally:
“I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame.”
Geez, is it hot in here?!
Besides talking about how she's basically DFA (down for anything), the actress explained what seemed most interesting when she read the racy novel for the first time.
And we'll give you a hint - It has NOTHING to do with sex:
“Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
We're so emotional over this flick!
Can it be Valentine's Day 2015 yet?! AHH!
