Angelina wants 50 Shades of Grey role

Los Angeles - Angelina Jolie wants to plays Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.

The Oscar winner has apparently been reading the novel dubbed as "mummy porn" after being introduced to it while shooting her new film in the United Kingdom.

Workers on the set of Maleficent persuaded Angelina to pick up E L James' book and since then she has become interested in a part in the forthcoming motion picture.

A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Angelina kept hearing about the book while she was in the UK. All the girls on set were talking about it and how it's being made into a film.

Bondage-style clothing

"Angelina went out and bought herself a copy, thinking she'd love a part in the hot topic on everyone's lips at the moment. She knows the film is bound to be a huge hit."

The fictional story tells the tale of virginal girl slowly consumed by the charms of a man named Christian Grey.

Angelina is famed for dressing in bondage-style clothing in the past and famously wore the blood of her ex, Billy Bob Thornton, in a vial around her neck.

The insider continued: "Ange is dead-set on a major part. She's up for the challenge."

Other stars in line for the role are Emma Watson, Katie Cassidy and Scarlett Johansson.

      NOT KIRSTEN STEWART!!! She would ruin it for me big time. I think we need an actress who isnt big, she needs to be subtle... This movie needs to make her big... If you get what i mean

    She could be "Mrs. Robinson" (Elena).

    Alexis Bledel is perfect for the part

    Methinks Angelina is a bit long in the tooth for this role.

    I LOVE Angelina maar not for this role she doesn't have that innocent, virginal look. She's sex on legs, uber seductive it simply wouldn't work.

    She would make an epic Mrs Robinson... If any one saw her in salt with blonde hair you would know what I mean... She can't be Ana no way...

    NO for Scarlett Johansson, overexposed for this role.....must be a young actor and a part of a lifetime.....I say Alexis Bledel.....

  • louise.roberts.1447 - 2012-08-02 02:05

    She is too old and not a virgin no way should she play Ana

    I think this is perfect for Emma Watson to shake off Hermoine Granger for good!!
