Keira Knightley Opts Out of 50 Shades of Grey Role

share on:


Now that the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is in the works, there are probably dozens of stars that have their eyes set on roles in the upcoming flick. Keira Knightley, however, is not one of them.

Even though she’s been proven to be one of the hottest women in the world, Keira is not interested in portraying what is presumably one of the hottest parts in cinematic history – Anastasia Steele.

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.’

Keira also emphasised she’s not read the saucy book, 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”.’

Why isn’t this gorgeous starlet interested in this role? Well, it could have something to do with the fact that she’s done her fair share of S&M and such in sex scenes in The Hole, Atonement and The Duchess. But who can say for certain?
