Emma Watson Blasts 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Speculation


Emma Watson has slammed reports that she is due to appear in the 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' movie adaptation, categorically denying that she has any links to it whatsoever.

The star was first linked to the part when EL James' trilogy rose to global prominence, and the rumours were strengthened when her 'Perks Of Being A Wallflower' co-star Nina Dobrev joked that she would be tempted to the part of Anastasia Steele if Ryan Gosling played Christian Grey.

However, speaking at a press conference today, the former Harry Potter star said: "I don't know how many times I have to reiterate, I literally don't know how many times I have to say it. I must have said it in 20 interviews now. I'm NOT attached to it, I don't know why this keeps coming up over and over again."

She went on: "It's flattering in the sense that people are excited about what I'm going to do in the future, but I just don't know where this thing has come from at all, I can't seem to shake it.

"I haven't read the book, I haven't been sent a script, I haven't been approached. I don't know what to say, that's it."

She continued: "I mean also, I've been saying since I was 16, if it's an interesting character, if it's important to character development, if it's the right role, then of course, if that's important to the story then I'll do [sex scenes] because I'm an actress, and that's it really."

Well, we guess that puts that rumour to bed then.
