I don’t think this will happen especially now that Kim is expecting her baby soon.
It’s nearly impossible to switch on the news day after day without hearing something about the Kardashians, most notably, Kim Kardashian and her pregnancy. The reality TV star is expecting a baby this summer with her rapper boyfriend Kanye West, and the latest has it that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is expecting a baby girl!
“I’m so excited to be having a girl.” Kim said on the show Sunday night, “Who doesn’t want a girl?”
It looks like it’s not just Kim who is ecstatic about the news.
“I know that’s what Kanye has always wanted,” she continued, “He wanted a little girl.”
Kim has had a tough time during her pregnancy, and says that her confidence has really been knocked down a peg or two after all the body changes she’s been through. The fashion loving diva has had to resort to wearing “anything that fits.”
On the topic of her changing body and fashion, Kim had this to say:
“This is how I have always dressed, and right now I’m wearing anything that fits.”
But when outright asked whether she was able to maintain her body confidence she came out with the direct answer of “no.”
“It was really hard for me to accept that the body changes,” Kim said last month on the topic of her pregnancy, “and I was having a different kind of pregnancy than Kourtney did.”
In spite of the confidence drop, that hasn’t stopped Kim from modeling lingerie and bearing her full pregnant midriff.
The news that Kim is having a little girl has inspired discussion in the Kardashian house.
“What kind of child will I have? A very tutu-y, like, princess?”
Although one thing Kim and Kanye haven’t decided on a baby name. There have been some reports of calling their daughter North or a name that begins with a K like Kim and the rest of her family, but it seems that perhaps Kim has her own ideas about what to name their baby.
“I think it would be really cute because Kanye and I are both K’s, but half of the names on our list aren’t K’s… We still have time, so we’ll do whatever feels right.” The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said that her rapper boyfriend Kanye is looking for something unique.
With the birth shortly approaching, we’re sure that Kim and Kanye will pick out the names some point soon, but for now, we know we can expect a little princess from the West-Kardashian family.
Focus Features and Universal Studios haven’t commented on the Good Will Hunting director’s candidacy for the movie, although they haven’t named any names in the director department at all.
Alex Pettyfer might be a favorite, but hasn’t been cast, although Van Sant used the actor to shoot a key scene where Ana Steele loses her virginity to Grey. However, things do look favorable to the actor, who is currently working with Universal Studios in the remake of Endless Love in Atlanta, not to mention that Gus Van Sant also worked on projects for Focus Features including Milk and Promised Land. It might just be coincidental, but things do seem interesting.
to begin. There has also been a lot of drama, mostly from American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis who ended up in a Twitter war with the movie’s producer Dana Brunetti after the choice of Kelly Marcel as the writer.
Van Sant is a good director, and we could be sure that if the producers want to continue with a tasteful production of the erotic novel, then Van Sant is a good choice. Not to mention that since finishing his drama Promise Land the director has a free schedule that would allow him to work as soon as screenwriter Kelly Marcel finishes the script.
It wouldn’t be the first time the pair would appear on the big screen together, since Lawrence and Hoult starred together in the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past which will be out in 2014.
Jennifer Lawrence would be a good pick for Anna, she’s the right age and despite being a natural blonde, after seeing her in the Hunger Games we’re sold on her as a convincing brunette. She’s a rising star, so a movie like Fifty Shades of Grey would be the perfect match for her.
As for Nicholas Hoult, we’re not so sure. He’s good looking, but he’s got a long way to go before he can topple off Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer and Henry Cavill off the crowning position. One thing for sure is his fan base has been pretty quiet about casting him as Christian Grey, and unlike his ex-girlfriend Jennifer, he’s not yet made it onto Hollywood’s most wanted list.
As the battle for Fifty Shades of Grey’s casting progresses, more and more surprises hit us and the names shift on a daily basis. Perhaps, Hoult could stand a chance, and maybe he and Jennifer will be forced to make up on the big screen.
With all the hype surrounding the recently viral novel, it’s no surprise that Hollywood is about to cash in by turning it into a major (and majorly risqué) motion picture. It was really only a matter of time, and now fans all over the world are about to get what they’ve been begging for. The big questions regarding this revelation, of course, are who will be cast and who will be responsible for directing the adaptation of E.L. James’ bestseller. Rumors have been floating around that Joe Wright may be a front-runner for directing the film. At this point, Wright himself has neither confirmed nor denied any of these claims and has actually been able to remain somewhat out of the public eye despite the attempts of media such as THR and Variety to drag him into the conversation and force an answer out of him.
However, despite the fact that Wright himself isn’t talking, others have decided to do most of his talking for him. While no one has blatantly denied that Wright will be directing Fifty Shades of Grey, Deadline.com’s Mike Fleming told the media that Wright’s schedule “doesn’t work with the Fifty Shades time frame.” There are plenty of other celebrities vying for this position if Wright is not able or chooses not to take it, including bad-girl Angelina Jolie. When confronted, Jolie mimicked Wright and joked that any conversations she may have had regarding the possibility of directing Fifty Shades of Grey may or may not have been “real.” Regardless of the director, Universal Studios Chairman Adam Fogelson let it slip to reporters in February that the film adaptation of Fifty Shades might be in theaters as early as the summer of 2014 and may star Hollywood’s sweetheart, Mila Kunis, as the ultimate bad girl protagonist. Now the real question: who will be the lucky dog that gets to play opposite Mila?
We have Alex Pettyfer. Largely unknown to many before his turn in “Magic Mike,” he played Channing Tatum’s protégé (Tatum is another favorite occasionally mentioned for the role) and showed a willingness to bare skin and get dirty onscreen.
Given all of their credentials, physical and career-related, any of the four would bring something unique and worthwhile to the role of Christian. Though the physical differences matter little due to technology, Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer do appear to look the part and have played comparable roles in the past, which explains the large fan backings both possess. Meanwhile, Gosling and Pettyfer are known for different types of characters (a whole menagerie of them in Gosling’s case).
Yet Pettyfer has shown an obvious interest in the film and has already filmed a scene screen test for Gus van Sant. The 34-year-old Somerhalder has publicly expressed his own interest in the project as well, meaning the smart money would be on either Somerhalder or Pettyfer. Both would be about a six-year age difference with the character, though it would be easy to see either of them as Christian’s age of 27 or 28. That said, the majority of current gossip points towards Alex Pettyfer being given the role, largely based on the screen test. As it looks, Pettyfer is the man to beat for the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming movie.
Alexis Bledel’s name repeatedly comes up on fan lists and in insider rumor discussions as a favorite for the leading female role, Anastasia “Ana” Steele, in the Fifty Shades of Grey film to be released in 2014. Fifty Shades of Grey details the erotic affair (featuring various forms of dominant-submissive relationships,and much more) between Anastasia, a 21-year-old a college senior, and Christian Grey, a rich entrepreneur, following her interviewing him. The level of speculation and fervor which some have for the choice has resulted in a trailer starring Bledel as Ana. As a book-loving, insecure, and casual-dressing young woman who possesses a shy and kind nature, the character could be like coming home in some ways for Bledel, though not necessarily.
With fellow young luminaries Elizabeth Olsen, Keira Knightly, Lyndsy Fonseca, Jennifer Lawrence, and Kristen Stewart also heavily touted as fan and Hollywood favorites, Bledel has some serious competition for the part of Ana. Beyond the filmmakers choosing someone else for their own reasons, Bledel has several aspects of her life and career that might make it harder to choose her than someone else. At 31 years old, Bledel is a decade older than the character she would be playing. She also might suffer from her past roles, namely Rory Gilmore, for which role she won two Teen Choice Awards, and that of Lena in the two The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants movies. Known for these and other primarily sweet teen roles, all of whom her legion of fans adored and grew up with, the prospect of Alexis Bledel as Anastasia Steele, the role might alienate many who would normally see her work. Her actual physical height, at least in relation to the leading candidate for Christian Grey, Alex Pettyfer, might also yields questions. With only a four-inch difference between the actor and actress (Pettyfer is listed as 5’11”, Bledel as 5’7”), he would hardly tower over her as Christian is said to in the novels.
While she is older than many of the others touted as favorites, Bledel’s age hardly shows, as she still maintains a youthful appearance and could still play a likely passable teen. She also simply looks the part; among the many women rumored to be up for the role, Bledel is a great physical match. She possesses the same light skin, brown hair, and large blue eyes as the book’s Ana. Her role as Rory Gilmore was, in many ways, similar to Ana, at least as the character starts the novel.Both were bookish and shy, but kind and strong female characters. Her familiarity with those aspects of the character would only benefit the production, and the growth Ana experiences would be enhanced by Bledel’s range. Her range has, indeed, grown since the end of Gilmore Girls and as she has moved beyond the teen roles of her earlier career. One example is that, even as she was acting in Gilmore Girls, she was already moving onto edgier roles, including playing prostitute in Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller’s Sin City. So, with all this in mind, Alexis Bledel might actually be the girl to beat.
He might be the bookies’ favorite to play Christian Grey, but it’s highly possible Ian Somerhalder might pass on the much-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation.
It seems the Vampire Diaries star has to choose between his career and his personal life, since girlfriend Nina Dobrev has set an ultimatum regarding Ian’s casting. Not that it will matter anymore after they have split up
Some source cite that the Bulgarian beauty and fellow co-star in The Vampire Diaries has told Somerhalder he’s not allowed to take up the role of Christian Grey in the hot and steamy movie. It looks like she’s not happy about having her man taking on this role even if it’s just simulated, with another woman. Perhaps, this is just Nina’s way of getting herself a part in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Is this going to make their relationship stronger or is Nina Dobrev shooting herself in the foot?
Things haven’t been at their best between Somerhalder and Dobrev, especially since they work constantly together on the set of the Vampire Diaries and live together at home. Many gossip rags were already speculating on the stability of their relationship when Ian was seen going round the world, while Nina stayed at home.
There is so much pressure from fans to get Ian cast in the Fifty Shades of Grey movies, but at the same time, it appears that there hasn’t been such a fan call out to see Nina get cast beside him. Too many people already associate them with Damon and Elena, so maybe casting directors wouldn’t be too keen to cast the real life couple as Christian and Elena.
If Ian Somerhalder is left out of the race, it looks like Henry Cavill will have a shot at being cast as Christian Grey. The British hunk who will star in the superman movie Man of Steel is one of the climbing favorites to play Christian Grey. Matt Bomer is unlikely to be cast despite the fan following due to his age, and if Somerhalder has been whipped into submission by Nina Dobrev, that could leave Cavill with a clean shot into the part.
Perhaps it might be for the best, since we’ve already built up such expectations of Somerhalder that maybe fans would be disappointed with his Christian Grey, and even E.L. James hinted that getting someone less predictable might be a better solution in terms of casting. A friend of Ian somerhalder mentions Nina Dobrev, Ian Somerhalder Split Was “Inevitable,”
Emma Watson’s name has been tied to the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise for quite some time, but while the Harry Potter star has denied every single rumor that has been circulating on the internet, her fans are still hopeful.
The huge “Emma for Anastasia” fandom is at its biggest on Twitter, where the Harry Potter actress has denied the rumors publically about appearing in Fifty Shades of Grey.
“Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life,” said the British actress back in March on the social networking sight.
Her fans have been very verbal about casting Emma in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie by shouting in caps on Twitter:
“I WANT NOTHING MORE THAN FOR EMMA WATSON TO BE IN 50 SHADES OF GREY SORRY NOT SORRY BYE,” said one fan.
Apparently the Fifty Shades movie casting is still a while away, but new reports say that the Game of Thrones actress, Emilia Clarke, has been officially cast as Anastasia Steele.
According to the IBTimes, the new story in the Fifty Shades rumorville is that the 25-year-old actress from the hit HBO series Game of Thrones has been cast as the innocent college graduate who enters into a saucy and dark relationship with Christian Grey.
Gather Celebrity were the ones who released this supposed news, and definitely lean towards her favor: “She’s young, talented, fine with nudity, pale, petite, big eyes, great body, delicate features, etc. all the things Christian loves about Ana .”
However, until we get the official word from either Universal Studios and Focus Features, E.L. James or the producers Mike de Luca and Dana Brunetti, we’re taking this with a pinch of salt. If it turns out not to be true, and another actress is picked, we can imagine there will be many disappointed fans out there. So far, Clarke has had a huge wave of support for the role, deemed by many as being the perfect actress for Anastasia Steele.
Ever since Universal Studios and Focus Features acquired the rights to the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, fans have been going crazy over casting speculations. So far, we’ve seen the shortlist of potential Christian Grey candidates include Ian Somerhalder, Matt Bomer, Henry Cavill and Stephen Amell.
In the past week though, a new name has been making it out on top of the polls as the popular choice for Christian Grey – Supernatural star Jensen Ackles.
Apparently, the film will be out in the summer of 2014, and now that the script is finished and the studios are on the hunt for the right director, it looks like fans are still busying themselves with picking the ideal Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele candidates.
Jensen Ackles may not have come up on the grapevine as much as Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer, but many fans are sitting up and are taking notice of the Supernatural star who is famed for his good looks and acting talent.
The Fifty Shades of Grey series by E.L. James continues to break even more records. In 2012, over 70 million copies of the erotic novel were sold, driving publisher Random House’s profits through the roof.
Considering we’re in an economic crisis, Random House isn’t doing too badly, since their operating profit has leapt up by 75% year-on-year to €325 million in just 2012. Thanks to being in the spotlight with E.L. James’s book, the company will be merging with one of the biggest publishers in the UK Pearson’s Penguin, causing revenues to increase by 22.5% year-on-year up to €2.1 billion.
The usual number of sales on ebooks at random house accounts for around 20% of their total sales, but not since Fifty Shades of Grey has arrived on the scene, which has boosted this number to 50%, and the print version of Fifty Shades accounted for one in ten of the 750 million books that the publisher carries.
“In 2012, our profits and sales hit an absolute record level, a historic all-time high,” said Markus Dohle, the Random House chairman and chief executive, “Our success has shown again one thing very clearly, that the core of our business in the 21st century, in a digital age, remains the same. It is so important to continually invest in content and creativity and to market that well.”
Although the publisher doesn’t want to solely thank Fifty Shades of Grey for the success of the company, it says that Rod Stewart’s autobiography and John Grisham’s The Racketeer should also be thanked as well.
“Clearly Fifty Shades was the main driver but it was not the only one,” said Thomas Rabe, the Bertlesmann chief executive, “In the middle of May we have Dan Brown’s Inferno coming.”
Fifty Shades of Grey began life as a piece of Twilight fan fiction called Master of the Universe that was then molded into the Fifty Shades of Grey we know today. It was released as a self-published ebook that went viral with its popularity, until Random House picked up the series. While novels in the past go through the traditional channels of a literary agent connecting with publishers, Fifty Shades of Grey has shown us that it is possible not only to break the rules, but to break into stardom. Maybe it’s a one off fluke, but maybe more and more authors will try to get noticed this way.
Ever since the Fifty Shades of Grey novels have been picked up by Universal Studios and Focus Features for movie adaptation, everyone has been speculating about who’ll get to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. So far, the fan favorites for the lip biting brunette beauty have included Alexis Bledel, Emilia Clarke and Lucy Hale, but it looks like we’ll have another actress to add to the list, Elizabeth Olsen the star of Martha Marcy May Marlene.
The blonde actress has been connected to the movie adaptation back in 2012, and the 23-year-old sister of the famous twins Mary Kate and Ashley has been a former favorite for the part of Anastasia Steele. The actress was a popular pairing with Armie Hammer as Christian Grey, and it looks like the interview Elizabeth had with Bullet back in July of last year has increased her chances of being cast as Ana in the movie.
Everyone is busy with the speculation on who’ll play the hot and sexy billionaire with Christian Grey, however there is one actor who’s name is being bandied about in association with the movie who we would never have expected – Mike Tyson.
Now, before you panic, the burly boxer will not be playing Christian Grey, but simply Tyson is apparently going to get involved with the parody of the best selling novel by E.L. James in the horror comedy Scary Movie 5.
Mike Tyson is going to play alongside Ashley Tisdale and Jerry O’Connell, who are involved in a Fifty Shades of Grey inspired skit, where O’Connell will be playing Grey and will be attempting to seduce one of the Scary Movie characters. However, things are going to turn strange for the seduction, since it’ll involve goats, hot wax, chains and Mike Tyson.
“Prepare for a night of unparalleled passion,” says O’Connell in the movie to Tisdale, “Your safe word is… deeper.”
The most hyped movie of the decade is coming closer to being made, with a projected release date for the summer of 2014. So, with such exciting news in the pipeline, it’s only a matter of time before the movie is cast – so let’s recap on all the popular candidates in line to play Anastasia Steele.
According to fans, the most popular actress in line to take on the part of Anastasia Steele is Gilmore Girls’ Alexis Bledel. She has the look: she’s a petite brunette with large blue eyes and has an angelic look that would be perfect for the part of Anastasia Steele. However, Bledel is also in her thirties, and some say is far too old to play the 20-year-old virgin convincingly.
Kristen Stewart has been talked about a lot in connection to the role, but E.L. James is dead set against having the Twilight cast in her movie, not to mention that she’s been clear that she’s not interested in the part either.
Mila Kunis was another name floating around, but those rumors have been put to a rest. Another big name was Emma Watson, she took to twitter to put a rest to the rumors.
The stories will continue to come out until we actually have someone selected to cast as Anastasia Steele , here is the latest news.
Selena Gomez has been mentioned in association with the role, however back in January last year, she said the role of Anastasia Steele is “a little too much for me.” But, the actress went onto make the video parody “Fifty Shades of Blue,” six months later, which if you couple with Spring Breakers and her relationship with Justin Bieber, maybe she’ll change her mind.
Vanessa hasn’t come up in the Fifty Shades of Grey discussion, and it seems like she doesn’t have the fan following to set her up as Ana. After a poll asking if Hudgens is innocent and sexy enough to play Ana, a whopping 75 percent said no. It is surprising though, since she does match the description of being a pretty, brunette who is close to Ana’s age. She hasn’t commented on the Fifty Shades of Grey books either way, which might be the smartest way to go about things.
Should the Disney and Spring Breakers stars be considered for the role of Anastasia Steele? Or do you favor the classic selection of Alexis Bledel, Emilia Clarke and Lucy Hale? Who do you think will get cast as Anastasia Steele?
Apart from Hammer’s classic good looks, he does have an advantage in getting cast, in that he’s worked in The Social Network, with the same producers Dana Brunetti and Mike De Lucca who are producing the Fifty Shades of Grey movies. E.L. James herself has also hinted that the actor who’ll likely get picked won’t be whom we’ve all been expecting, and Ian Somerhalder has seemed less vocal about the upcoming movie as before. So does this mean that Armie could very well stand a chance at being cast as the infamous Christian Grey?
Other actors who are popular choices for Christian Grey include Matt Bomer from White Collar and Magic Mike. Matt has a huge fan following, despite criticism from those who say he’s either too old to play the part of Christian Grey and those with more extreme viewpoints who are against the casting of an openly gay actor in a part like Christian Grey. Henry Cavill is also a rising favorite, especially since the relatively under-the-radar British actor is starring in Man of Steel which is coming out shortly. He’s got the looks and the talent to pull off Grey, and is rising in popularity in the polls. Another name connected with Grey is Arrow star Stephen Amell, who is supposed to be in talks with the production about the movie, which is exciting in itself since it looks like the studios are on the hunt for Grey already.
Back in March, things got a little crazy, and there has been a lot of speculation about Emma Watson getting cast as the innocent Anastasia Steele. According to hacker “Anonymous” who hacked into German film distribution company Constantin, that Emma Watson had been cast as Anastasia Steele.
While Anonymous has revealed some big celebrity secrets and scandals, Emma Watson has come out and flatly denied being involved in the upcoming movie of Fifty Shades of Grey.
The 22-year-old Harry Potter star took to twitter to deny the rumors. It seems the actress is sick of all the rumors and speculations going around about her involvement with the movie. She tweeted: “Who here actually thinks I would do Fifty Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life.”
She then proceeded to post another cryptic message with just a question mark.
Emilia might not be Hollywood royalty, but her part as Daenerys Targaryen has definitely put her on the map. She might be recognizable as the platinum blonde dragon queen, but Emilia is fast becoming a big name. Her part on a Game of Thrones has definitely demonstrated to us she’s got what it takes to pull off a part like Anastasia Steele. Also, she’s shown that she’s comfortable getting nude and down and dirty in sex scenes, which definitely adds to the job description for Anastasia Steele.
Whether or not Clarke is open to playing Ana or not remains a mystery. She’s been very quiet either way about taking the part and hasn’t expressed it one way or another. At least a silence is better than a no.
She has the right vibe for Ana, from her innocent looks down to the sassiness we’ve seen from her as Daenerys. We feel confident that Emilia could project an awkward and shy Ana, who transforms into a sensual and sexual character ready to handle the darker themes of Fifty Shades of Grey. She might not have the huge fan backing like Alexis Bledel, but she has a lot of the media rooting for her to take up the part in the movie. She is definitely in the top three likely to get cast, so it’s just a matter of keeping an eye on how the casting progresses.
Emma Watson Goes on twitter to set the record straight on the casting role for Anastasia Steele in the movie fifty shades “Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life.”
The rumor spread like wild fire after a hacker known as Anonymous hacked into the accounts of Constantin Films, a German production studio, and claimed to have found documents linking the actress to the movie. Since Anonymous had exposed true celebrity secrets, it seemed like a reliable piece of information, however, Emma has finally put these rumors to rest.
Another actress who was also associated with the films and has flat out denied her participation is Mila Kunis. The Black Swan star was frequently associated with the Fifty Shades of Grey movies, but has also been outspoken about her participation.
“This Fifty Shades of Grey thing is just not going to leave it!” she said, “No, you will not see me in Shades, I’m sorry.”
So far fans are getting hungry about knowing who’ll be in the Fifty Shades of Grey movies, and all kinds of crazy stories are coming out. There have been talks of supposed casting considerations, and Arrow star Stephen Amell, who is being considered for Christian Grey, has hinted that the studios are already looking. Although, the movie doesn’t have a director yet, so it all seems highly unlikely. Ian Somerhalder, who showed so much enthusiasm before, has toned down his Christian Grey talk and even dropped hints he won’t be cast.
So does this mean Emma is out of the running? It looks so for definite. However, there is no sure fire way of finding out about the final casting until the movies are officially cast, and even then things could still shake things up. I guess the best thing is to wait and see for the official trailer to come out for the movie, and if Universal Studios and Focus Features are right, that’ll be in 2014.
The 34-year old actor hails from Louisiana and has been in the business from a young age, with a modeling career between the ages of 10 and 13, before he turned to acting when he was 17. Somerhalder mostly went under the radar until he was cast as Boone Carlyle in Lost. However, his role was short lived when compared with the others, as he was the first to be killed off in the series. He then joined The Vampire Diaries in 2009, which upped his profile.
There are many reasons why Ian Somerhalder makes the perfect Christian Grey. Firstly, he has the look and a hot body to match, not to mention he’s got Christian Grey’s intense stare down to perfection. He’s also more than just a pretty face, since he’s demonstrated in his role as Damon Salvatore he can take on complex, dark parts, but his philanthropic work outside of his acting work add an additional edge to his candidacy as Christian Grey – since Grey himself is keen to end world hunger.
Ian’s passion and interest in the role shows, especially as the Vampire Diaries star has been researching how to set up his own dungeon. There are many aspects to Ian that scream Christian Grey, and it’s not just about looks. He definitely has the confidence, charm and charisma to sell us on the attraction and complexity that is Christian Grey.
