Los Angeles - Justin Bieber has been asked to star in upcoming movie Fifty Shades Of Grey.

The 18-year-old star was appearing on the Jonathan Ross's chat show in the United Kingdom when he revealed film bosses have asked him to act in the motion picture version of the S&M novel.

During the programme to be screened on Saturday Justin confessed that he could have played Christian Grey.

He admitted: "They actually want me to be in the movie!"

The part would be far from the innocent image Justin has portrayed in his pop career so far.

'I'm always going to be their Justin'

In the book, Christian has a room full of whips, handcuffs and masks for use on submissive women.

Justin also revealed to the presenter that he has banned himself from discussing his love life.

He is currently dating 20-year-old actress Selena Gomez but says he does not want to anger his admirers by talking about their romance.

He said: "At the end of the day I'm always going to be their Justin, regardless of who I'm dating.

"I like to make sure my fans are comfortable."

The heartthrob wants to be known for his abilities as a musician and not his good looks.

He added: "I love being young and being in the spotlight but I want to be taken seriously as an artist, be known for my music and not necessarily known for a flick of my hair."
