Don’t be looking for Emma Watson to be playing Anastasia Steele anytime soon!
After rumours swirled the web for the past couple weeks that the Harry Potter beauty was in the talks to play the role of Anastasia in the movie version of 50 Shades of Grey, the star has revealed that the rumours are completely false!
“I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing,” Emma told EW. “There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call. It was the same way with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – I never even saw a script!”
Even Emma’s family and friends were thinking she was attached to the movie. “I told them just because there are 60 articles on the Internet doesn’t mean it’s any less true than if there are three or four.” Emma explained. “The thing is I’m not going to go out there every time someone attaches me to a film to say no or release a statement.”
Emma will soon be starring in the highly anticipated Perks of Being a Wallflower, and she just finished filming The Bling Ring where she played a teen girl involved in the robbing of celebrity homes.
