Los Angeles - Elizabeth Olsen thinks women need to watch more porn.

The actress has ruled out taking on the lead role of Anastasia Steele, a young woman who is introduced to the world of bondage and kinky sex by manipulative billionaire Christian Grey, in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, and thinks its impact on society means people need to watch more porn.

She told Bullettmedia.com: "It's had a huge impact on society. Apparently rope sales have skyrocketed because women who've read the book are really getting into bondage, which is kind of great.

"It's such a taboo for women to actually discuss sexuality without the help of Cosmopolitan.

"All of a sudden, this book has become a sensation because the women reading it haven't had access to this kind of thing before.

I was talking to a guy who was making a joke about it, saying, 'Clearly, these women just need to watch porn'. In a way, he's right."

REVIEW: Fifty Shades of Grey

While Elizabeth doesn't want the role, Emma Roberts recently revealed she would jump at the chance to star in the movie.

She said: "Everyone says read Fifty Shades of Grey. I don't really understand. But everyone on the plane was reading it, and I was like, 'I should probably just get it.'

"I haven't read it, I don't even understand, but yeah, it sounds awesome. Anything racy, hot. Sure, let's get hot."
