50 shades of grey sold 100 million copies

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!

CRAZY!

Now we'll just have to wait and see how everyone takes to Jamie Dornan & Dakota Johnson's versions of Christian & Ana in the movie!

Though, from what we've seen, we have a feeling it will be just as popular as its book counterpart!

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!!!

We're almost more curious about this than about the Red Room of Pain! We did say almost

While we thought Fifty Shades Of Grey's Christian Grey was inspired by Twilight's Edward Cullen, one man believes he is supposedly the true muse behind E.L. James' titular character.

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.

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!

Ch-ch-check out more of Dakota in Elle (below)!
