Keira Knightley has put herself out of the running to play Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie
The Fifty Shades of Grey movie roles may be some of the most lusted after in Hollywood but Keira Knightley hasn’t been seduced by the part of Anastasia Steele. Despite being one of the hottest women in the world, she’s not up for portraying one of the hottest parts in cinematic history.
When asked if she’d consider starring in the movie adaptation of E.L James’ Fifty Shades of Grey book, Keira said: ‘You know, I normally don’t like to give a definite about anything [but] I can definitely say it will not be Fifty Shades of Grey.’
As well as opting out of the movie, Keira was keen to stress she’s not read the saucy tome, adding: ‘I haven’t even read it yet, actually. I mean, just from [what I’ve heard], friends who’ve gotten into it, and I’ve gone, “No”.’
But it’s not because she’s a prude, in fact she’s already had her dose of S&M after working on a movie that covered the concept of spanking as well as stripping off for sex scenes in The Hole, Atonement and The Duchess.
Keira added: ‘I did A Dangerous Method. That had a bit of all that [DBSM] in it. I don’t think I need to do it again.’
We’re sure her male following think otherwise…
