Felicity Jones 'Excited' By Going Naked For 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Role


Keira Knightley may have said "never" to a role as Anastasia Steele in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' but one actress who is after the role is 'Cemetery Junction's' Felicity Jones.

The British star revealed her longing for the role at a Belvedere vodka party, and seems to welcome the nudity and racy scenes that would be an inevitable part of starring as the mistress of Christian Grey.

The 29-year-old actress told The Telegraph's Mandrake, “It would be very exciting”, adding: “I read the book and thought it was an interesting read.”

With other Hollywood stars ruling themselves out, like Emma Watson and Knightley, it seems that the role could go to a lesser known star with an interest in the novel such as Jones.

The actress also admitted that she would welcome the racy scenes she'd have to become involved in to star in the movie, telling the paper's gossip column that it wouldn't be a bar to her involvement.

Jones said: “It is something you consider individually with each project that you do, but clearly with this particular project it would be necessary.”

Do you think that Felicity could get the nod as Ana? She may not have the name recognition of other stars linked to the role, but her enthusiasm and demure but sexy looks seem to indicate that she'd take on Ana's obligations to Christian wholeheartedly.
