I have no interest in 50 Shades of Grey. I picked up the book once looking for some good naughty stuff, but was underwhelmed by everything I found. Poorly written sex isn’t really intriguing. Or sexy.
I do however love this sentence, from Vulture:
“Ryan Gosling, and not Robert Pattinson, was the first pick for Christian, but he apparently had no interest.”
Can you imagine being tasked with calling up Ryan Gosling’s agent and feeling out his interest in 50 Shades of Grey? Something tells me there’s a bit of understatement going on re: Gosling’s passing on 50 Shades. Also, Shailene Woodley apparently passed on the female lead. I can’t imagine why, given she’s endeared herself into the hearts of all nerdfighters (seriously). What a follow-up 50 Shades would have made to The Fault in our Stars.
Oh, casting agents.
