It’s official: Millions of people are obsessed with the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy by E. L. James, as sales of the trilogy hit the twenty-million-copy mark. It’s clear that fans of the books want as much of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele as possible. Much to the dismay of fans, the story does indeed have a finite ending – but luckily there’s still the movie adaptation working its way to development.

Tongues are starting to wag as movie folk, readers, and fans begin to toss casting rumors around. Earlier this summer, we asked you who you thought would be the perfect Christian Grey – and your passionate opinions poured in in droves. Those of you who weren’t sold on the idea of Simon Baker, Ian Somerhalder, Michael Fassbender, or Ryan Gosling didn’t hold back, suggesting other hotties like Alex Pettyfer, Matt Bomer, Channing Tatum, Bradley Cooper… and so many others. Readers clearly had their own vision of the sexy, smoldering Christian Grey. Now, we have to ask: Who would you cast as the sexy but naive Anastasia Steele? We had a hard time narrowing down your options to just four, but we came up with Lily Collins, Amanda Seyfried, Kristen Stewart, and Shailene Woodley. Of course, we also left the options open ended and invite you to weigh in with your own opinions.

    • Kat

      I agree with you, maya, Alexis Bledel would be perfect as Anastasia . . . along with Ian Somerhalder as Christian.

      • kristen

        Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder. enough said.

        • Meg

          Alexis Bledel would be a great Ana!

          • Stacey

            I think Alexis would be amazing! I could also see Emily Clarke

        • Emma

          Something tells me we're on to something w/our Dream cast of Bledel and Somerhalder. In fact they'd be so perfect, I'm already jealous of her. Actually, psh I'll be jealous of whoever gets to play Ana in the end. ; )

        • Jen

          I couldn't agree more with those suggesting Alexis Bledel and Ian! They are the perfect casting pair!!

        • Cindy

          alexis bledel and Ian they are exactly what I imagine!!!

        • Debbie

          ALEXIS BLEDEL - there's no comparison..... she'd be perfect. very timid, brown hair, blue eyes.....they can't stray away from the description in the book of the characters...... above they have brown eyes women to vote for....thats not possible. stick to the book don't screw it up. and as far as Christian it should be Cam Gigandet.......Whoa!!!

        • Caterina

          I definitely see Ian Somerhalder as Christian, and if they have to chose a well known actress I say Mila Kunis for Anastasia because she is the perfect woman but if not I say go find a regular girl and make her famous.

          • Celeste

            Thats what I wanted too, unknown people.

      • Jen

        Alexis Bledel or Emmy Rossum as Ana (Please do not use Kristen Stewart...she won't do the part justice...her acting is too forced/fake.)

        Ian Somerhalder as Christian

        • Tania

          I completely agree with the comments about Kristen Stewart - she would ruin the character of Ana... Alexis Bledel would be a great Ana, didn't even think of her til i read the comments
          Can't wait to see who they do go with for Ana & Christian

        • Leighton Meester would be a perfect Anastasia Steele!! She is an amazing actress and She's beautiful! She just needs a chance!!!! Vote for Leighton Meester..... Plus I don't think she's shy which means the hot and steamy scenes would be no problem!! Now that I think about it Ed Westwick acting like Chuck would be a great Christian Grey!!! Wishful thinking!!

        • Jackie

          agreed, no Angelina or Kristen they will not do the part or Anastasia justice... NO!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Lucy

        I hadn't thought of Alexis, but yes! I was thinking Zooey Deschanel (does awkward well) and Bradley Cooper.

      • Danielle

        For some reason when I read about Ana I picture Emma Stone.

        • pedz

          whoever said emma stone i totally agree with you. that's my initial idea the moment i read the book. 🙂

        • Natalya

          Alexis Bledel will fit the role of Anastasia Steele down to a T. She can act, subtly innocent looking.....definitely can carry that role. Kristen Stewart, eh, she looks constipated most of the time I've seen her about Chris Hemsworth??

          • Kim

            check out this youtube site I think they have it perfectly!!


            Chris Hemsworth & Alexis Bledel

          • Abbie

            For Ana Steele my vote is for ALEXIS BLEDEL, and Ian Somerhaulder or Matt Bomer.... but definitely ALEXIS BLEDEL for Anastasia Steele's role...

        • Lorraine

          I agree about Emma Stone, for some reason I can picture her playing Ana, but if not her my second choice would also be Alexis Bledel.

          • Anna

            I really don't think Alexis Bledel would do justice to Anastasia. I mean, sure, she looks innocent, and she can play awkward, but SEXY in the Red Room of Pain. I don't think so.

            Now, Emma Stone I can see doing sexy, but all the candidates so far that have been named, I just don't picture any of them being Ana. Maybe, on screen, but right now, I think it's going to be really hard to find the perfect Ana.

      • melissa

        I agree completely !!!!!!!!!!! The casting director needs to listen to the public. If Gossling got it I could not possibly watch

      • Acm

        I love Alexis Bledel & if it were possible to recapture her youth from her Gilmore Girls days, that would be perfect casting! However, she's now 31 & as much as I'd LOVE to see her tackle the role, I don't see her as a 20-21 year old? Not that 31 is over the hill!

        Ian Somerhalder is the perfect actor for Christian Grey! That is most def the face I put with the character while reading. Mostly because of his Vampier Diaries work, he's quite good.

        For Kate- again, probably too old for the role but Blake Lively came to mind, maybe it was the hair? Idk... My other picks are Ashley Greene for Mia, & Josh Duhamel for Taylor?

        I will say, however, that these books are too huge for any of this to matter. Even if I see Ian, Alexis, Kate, Josh, & Ashley in those roles, it doesn't matter. I think that because this is a best seller, even if they cast someone in a role that I don't see them playing, theres no way it's going to be bad! There was an online petition started when Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward by those that thought he wasnt right for the role in Twilight & ultimately, he did ok. I suppose they sit through thousands of auditions & they'll see something I don't. I'm constantly amazed by what Hollywood puts out there & I realized that I have no ability to change or affect casting so I'm not gonna just trust them not to mess it up!

      • Hudna

        I have to agree with so many others on here! Alexis Bledel would be the perfect girl for Anastatia Steele! She is shy, awkward, beautiful....the list in endless! When I started reading this book I envisioned her instantly.....along side Ian Somerhalder ~ I mean come on, those eyes are perfect ~ need I say more? I really believe that in order for this movie to get the kind of ratings they want ~ then they will definitely have to chose their actors wisely! Emma Watson I think is a no go! As well as Matt Bomer. I cannot wait to see who they pick!!!

      • Betty Dortega

        I agree with you on Ian as Christian, but Alexis is way way too innocent. Extremely innocent. I think Brittany Snow would make a better Ana.

      • Jennifer

        Alexis Bledel is perfect

    • Eleanor Ajram

      I agree with you both on Alexis Bledel....she has the perfect combination of beauty, smarts and humour for Ana Steele's character !

    • Patty

      It's funny, cause Alexis Bledel was exactly who I saw when I was reading this book. I think she would be perfect. Then again, she may be too innocent for the part.

      • Suzy

        Alexis Bledel would have been perfect if she hadnt been in Gilmore Girls and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. Those roles are just too innocent.

      • Betty Dortega

        I began to think that too but as the story progressed I saw that she (Alexis) was way way way too innocent to be Ana. I think Ian as Christian & Brittany Snow as Ana would be great. Besides, Alexis's crying annoys me, and well Ana is supposed to cry alot.

    • Leigh

      I don't agree with Alexis Bledel. To me she has always been this innocent, goody two shoes. I really do love Ian Somerhalder as Christian, though Alexander Skarsgard is my number one choice right now. And I would put Ashley Greene or Anna Kendrick in for Anastasia.

      • Marie

        I think Alexander Skarsgard is the absolute best choice. He does some very interesting things on True Blood and would easliy fit into the role of Christian. Not to mention the body..
        I like the idea of Emmy Rossum.. She has what it takes to pull it off.. Mila Kunis would be pretty hot actually...
        But for the love of God... NO KRISTEN STEWART!!! Her drippy attitude and heavy breathing is painful at best..

        • Sam

          Def agree no Kristen Stewart! Would love to see Alexis Bledel or Emmy Rossum tho!!

          • Akaela Wong

            Alexis Bledel Would be perfect, she's sweet, young nice, and has a kinky side

        • Prd2BDinks

          NO NO NO Kristen Stewart - seriously would TOTALLY ruin the book / movie for me

        • Sonia

          I'm liking Mila Kunis or Emma Stone for Anastasia with Alexander Skarsgard of Ryan Gosling as Christian.

      • Alexis Bledel actually played a very racy role on Mad Men, she knocked it out of the park! Even when she showed up at his office practically naked!

        • Renee

          we agree Alexis Bledal

      • Alexis Bledel actually played a very racy role on Mad Men, she knocked it out of the park! Even when she showed up at his office practically naked...she has very good range. She was also in Sin City was different than her usual role!

        • Tennille

          Emmy Rossum or Lucy Hale would be perfect as Ana and Christian needs to be played by Chris Hemsworth! Please don't cast Kristen Stewart....I recently watched Snow White and the Huntsman and was so very disappointed in her was so bad that I fell asleep!

      • Emma

        Ashley Greene and Anna Kendrick would be great too! Huh, I hadn't thought of them before... Either way, Ms. IGetToPlayFutureMrsGrey is one lucky gal!

        • Jennifer

          I completely agree with Ashley Greene and Anna Kendrick!!!!!!!!!!!
          And there is no question that the character was written for Ian Somerhalder!!!!!!
          And i also like the idea of Kim Catrall as Mrs. Robinson.
          If that was the cast, it would be great.
          Cast Kristen Stewart as Anna and i probobly won't even be able to watch the movie. Which i intend to see in theatres a few times!!

      • danielle

        I like Anna Kendrick or Lyndsay Fonseca-nothing against Alexis Bledel, just don't see her getting all sexy!

      • Jackie

        I do not think that Kristen Stewart, Amanda Seyfried or Alexis Bledel should be cast. To me, they are too established and I would always think of them as who they are famous for being. I love all of them, but Alexis is always going to be a Gilmore girl to me and I would have a hard time seeing her as Anastasia. I feel Shailene Woodley would be great in the role, (or someone more unknown) as most do not associate her with a really famous role. Ian Somerhalder I ABSOLUTELY agree with, tho! 😉

      • Susan B

        I would do Anna Kendrick. She blushes really easy and has that quite Beauty about her. I think Christian should be Chris Hemsworth.

      • Leea

        Agree ian somerhalder, a defanite. But please no any of the chicks for Ana that are mentioned above! Anne Hathaway hell no, Amand seyfried hell no and Alexis bleak is a hell no, I do like Emma Roberts and maybe Anna Kendrick.
        I think they need to b played by ppl who have not done a similar role before

    • Ashleigh

      YES!!! Alexis Bledel!!

    • Karon

      I agree alexis biedel would be the perfect ana for the movie. She just has that naive look.

    • Crystal

      I ADORE Alexis Bledel, however I prefer Rooney Mara. But Alexis Bledel would definitely have to be my 2nd pick =)

      • Lumi

        I agree, Rooney would be perfect!!! Felicity Jones is my second pick tho, I'm not that sure about Alexis Bledel.
        Just please, please, do not give Kristen Stewart this part! I love her, she's actually one of my fav actresses but I can't see her as Ana. No way!

    • Jessica Ulery

      Alexis Bledel!! She is perfect... Blue eyes, brown hair, and so innocent looking

    • Kristin

      I love the idea of Alexis Bledel. She is the plain Jane beauty that is Anatasia Steele. We've all seen her acting on Gilmore Girls and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, which is a hell of a lot better than the other female actresses in this poll. She has Ana's characteristics to a "T". She has my vote! I also love the idea of her BFF Kate being played by Blake Lively, which almost every female I've talked with has said they see her in that role. These ladies already have the chemistry for the film if they both get picked up.

      • Emma

        Ha Blake is a total Kate!

    • mari

      Alexis Bledel definitely is Ana Steele

    • Alli

      I didn't even think of Alexis, but I could definitely see her! She's obscure enough to pull off the role. It's not like she's so famous you can only see her in previous roles. She's beautiful in a subtle way and she's got the gorgeous blue eyes and brunette hair!

      • Gen

        Alexis Bledel is my choice also with Ian, they'd make a great match!

    • Mia

      Alexis Bledel and Ian Sexyholder <3 If not them, NO ONE else!!!!

      • Penny

        Emma Watson for Anna

    • Christie

      I love Jordana Brewster as Ana...

    • ASH

      alexis bledel- or megan fox

    • Melissa

      Alexis bledel alll the way!!!!!!!

    • sandy

      Alexis Bledel for Ana & Armie Hammer for Christian

      • Heather

        I would have never thought of Armie Hammer... I keep picturing someone in my head while reading... but can't figure out an actor who matches what I see in my head. I was leaning towards Ryan Gosling but I think Armie could pull if off. As for Anastasia Steele........ Alexis Bledel would be really good for the role. I keep picturing Blake Lively as Kate for sure and Alex Pettyfer as Elliot

    • chrissy

      Alexis biedl. Definitely. She has an innocent look .the others do not look like virgin's.

    • Melissa

      Yes Please ALEXIS BLEDEl is the perfect anastasia, she is brunette and has the big blue eyes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Annie

      I agree Alexis Bledel is the perfect Ana.
      Pale beautiful skin, beautiful baby blues, and gorgeous brunette hair! Plus she can be the good girl next door and very sexy at the same time!

    • I agree that Alexis Bledel is the perfect Ana!
      Pale beautiful skin, beautiful baby blues, and gorgeous brunette hair! Plus she can be the good girl next door and very sexy at the same time!

    • gclark

      Ashley Green

      • chancey

        Ashley green as Ana
        Channing tatum as christian

    • Sarah

      Marie Avgeropoulos would be so perfect for Anastasia Steele!

    • Anja

      I must agree she would be perfect. 😉

    • Leanna

      Didn't know who this Alexis Bledel was so googled her and that's exactly the look I had in my mind for Ana when I read the books!!

    • Allison

      Alexis Bledel - Ana
      Ian Somerhalder - Christian
      Jennifer Aniston - Ms. Robinson

      • Sarah Jade

        angilina jolie for ms robinson

      • Amy P

        Allison, I agree on Ian and Alexis. But I'd prefer Charlize as Mrs Robinson.

      • Emma

        NICE! (And you prolly meant "Mrs. Robinson" 🙂 )

      • Annie

        I think Mrs. Robinson should be Diane Lane

      • April

        Ian Somerhadler - Christian
        Alexis Bledel - Ana
        Angelina Jolie - Mrs. Robinson
        Matthew McConaughey - Christian's father
        Jennifer Aniston - Christian's mother
        Marie Avgeropoulos - best Friend Kate

    • I am not sure how everyone is suggesting Alexis Bledel she was born in 1981 and does look in her 30's Ana is 21 and has finished grad school need the casting to be a younger woman. It makes total sense.

    • Brooke

      Katie Holmes would be perfect!

      • nanny

        NOOOOO to Katy Holmes. She is an AWFUL "actress"

        • Sam

          I don't understand how people are saying Ann Hathaway or Katie Holmes for Ana. Ana is 21! You need an actress who is close to the age or who looks the age. There is no way that either of them can pull off a 21 years old. I sure hope that they aren't considered at all for this movie... or it surely will be ruined!

    • Courtney

      Alexis Bledel!!!

    • Amanda Medeiros

      Alexis Beidel is perfect and the only one to be considered by far!

    • Kay

      Alexis Bledel would do well.
      I've also considered Anna Kendrick.

      Either way, it MUST be Ian Somerhalder

    • trisha

      bella heathcote

    • Tiffany

      Danielle Panabaker

    • Gamal kadry

      ALEXIS BLEDEL Would be perfect or Mila Kunis.... She has to have the Big Blue eyes!!! & full lips cause shes always bitting her bottom lip!!!..... You cant have someone with no lips or Fake plz no fake lips!! lol

    • Rebecca

      Definately Alexis Bleidel as Ana Steele...look up Henry Cavill. He is totally how I picture Christian Grey!!!

      • Stacey

        Henry Cavill would be awesome. Mrs. Robinson isn't even seen until book two. But, Sharon Stone would be awesome

    • Mkhughes

      Katie Holmes

    • Harriet

      I think Emma Thompson would make a good Ana that or Lily Collins. 🙂

    • Cindy

      Alexis_Bledel is the one!

    • Amy P

      I agree, Alexis Bledel is perfect for it! She's my choice!

    • Taylor Fulks

      Cast anyone but Kristen Stewart....please!!!! The girl can't act....seriously!!!!! Christian will be the eye candy obviously, so Ana has to carry the story. Kristen can't articulate a simple sentence....her skills lie in writhing on the floor grunting. Please!

    • Linney

      chris evans as christian and jennifer lawrence or ann hathaway as ana

    • SAnderson

      I vote for Kate Mara. She's beautiful but understated, can play younger than her age, and is short enough that Ian Somenhalder could be Christian without using shoe lifts! Although I'm for Alexander Skarsgard myself...

    • Rebecca

      Alexis Blediel as Ana!!! Matt Bomer as Christian, (Doesn't matter about him being gay!)

    • Veronica

      I vote for Bella Heathcote to play the role of Anastasia. I came across a pic of her in inStyle mag, and immediately saw Ana.

    • Leigh Anna

      Victoria Justice or Leighton Messer

    • Sanchez

      Rachel McAdams, I think, should play the roll of Anastasia. And Matt Bomer as Christian.

    • I think that KRISTEN is good for Anastasia Steele

      There has not been a man yet that I have seen is drop dead gorgeous that I would stammer if I saw him.

      I think you need to find a up and coming actor, real blonde hair, real blue eyes, that we all would say where did he come from and omg he is beautiful and handsome at the same time.

      The girl is not the center of the this book series it is the Christian Grey!

    • David Gillies as Christian. Mila Kunis as Ana.

    • Meegs

      I agree wholeheartedly it should be Alexis Bledel! She not only has the right look, but she also has the smart mouth and quick wit Ana has!!

    • red83

      Alexis Bledel!!! she is so innocent and has great blue eyes

      • Betty Dortega

        That's the thing. She is just way too innocent. I think it should be Ian & Brittany Snow.

        Check out this fan-made video of a perfect cast. Almost perfect. I agree mostly with it except for the role of Ethan. I see Bryan Greenberg for that role.

    • Jess

      I completely agree, Alexis Bledel couldn't be more perfect for the role of Anastasia! She is subtly beautiful, has big blue eyes, and is petite. Picking any of those other actresses on the poll up there would completely ruin the film. They just aren't a good fit. The books were so extremely well written that they need to get the cast exactly right if they want to make a successful adaptation!

    • Kirsty

      Alexis Bledel is definitely Ana & Chris Pine for Christina 🙂

    • Samantha

      I agree! Alexis and Ian would be the perfect couple for Fifty Shades! Alexis has the innocence and naive quality to her and her appearance that she would be the perfect Ana. Ian is sexy, can easily go from sexy and playful to sexy and hard. Plus they look the right ages for both characters.

    • Valerie

      Emmy Rossum as Ana and Alexander Skarsgard as Christian. Hands down. Give it a second... think about it... you know you would LOVE to see that.

    • maryann

      I think Channing Tatum should be Christian and Rachel McAdams as Anastasia

    • Renee

      Alexis Bledel would make the PERFECT Anastasia Steele/Grey!

      If Kristen Stewart is cast, I will not be seeing this movie. She is dreadful!

    • Diana

      Matt Bomber as Christian Grey......AND TOTA,LLY agree to Alexis Bledel is PERFECT as Anastasia Steele....'Dream Team" for this Trilogy

    • Jen

      I absolutely agree with Alexis Bledel.

    • Danielle

      Ashley Greene as Ana...Cam Gigandet as Christian...this is who I picture!!!

    • 4152

      Emilia clarke ???

    • Julie

      Good call! Even the thought of Kristen Stewart erks me.

    • Kris

      PLEASE - for the love of all that is Right and Holy in this world - DO NOT CAST Kristen "No Talent" Stewart in this movie.
      My Vote:
      1. Alexander Skaarsgard as Christian (has the height, the eyes, the look, the acting chops = total package)
      2. Alexis Bledel as Anna (innocent looking, the eyes, sexy, beautiful, and again, Acting chops.)
      3. Angelina Jolie as Director (she'll treat the subject matter as it should be treated).

    • maria

      Has anyone thought that Emilia clark would be a prefect fit

    • Alexis Bledel or Emmy Rossum! None of the above even remotely compare to be Ana.

    • Sanja

      Anne Hathaway is a perfect person for this role. She would rule the role and encompass passion and playfulness and also give that - I will control you- vibe when necessary. Hands down, she is the one. Unexpected and perfect for it.

    • Kaitlin

      I just said that same thing to my sister today ... she would play a PERFECT Ana!!!!!

    • Krystal Rae

      Alexis Bledel! Perfect! That's an understatement! Other options, Nina Dobrev, Scarlett Johansson, Kristen Stewart, or Megan Fox. As for Christian they can't go wrong with either Ian Somerhalder or Alex Skarsgard. And Charlize Theron as "Mrs. Robinson.

    • Lisa

      Piper Perabo from Covert Affairs if she would dye her hair brown she has that innocent looking face

    • Lindsay

      I agree with Alexis Bledel..she has the ''Ana'' look. Camilla Belle would be a good choice too, I think.

    • Deana

      Alexis Bledel would be perfect for Anastasia Steele. Please don't cast Kristen Stewart. She has too much public connection to Twilight.

    • Alexandra

      Alexis bledal 100% and Mat Bomer as Christian, not that guy from Vampire Diaries Ian Sommerhaulder, what r u guys thinking !!! She's better looking then him and Christians supposed to be hotter than Ana!

    • Holly

      Emma Stone. She has a sweetness/innocence to her & she is very beautiful, big blue eyes and all & plays feisty very well. She pulls off blonde, red and brunette hair very well.

      I know there's been some talk of Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey... Obviously these two were in Crazy, Stupid Love together but come on, the Dirty Dancing scene in the movie with them was pretty awesome, great chemistry!

      Alex Pettyfer & Alexis Bledel would also work. Just my opinion.

    • Amanda Burgess

      I would cast Katharine McPhee as Anastasia, I've been watching her in Smash and I think she would be perfect. I'd cast Chase Crawford as Christian.

    • At first I thought Jude Law and Natalie Portman but I cannot get anyone to agree with me so I'm goin with Alexis and Matt Bomer. And Pollie Perrett on NCIS I think is the only one to play Mia. Sharon Stone would make a good Ms. Robinson.

    • Meg

      Alexis Bledel is definitely a better choice than any of those listed above. I also think Alexandra Daddario would be great. If you don't know who she is, Google her. She looks exactly how I pictured Ana.

    • Jen

      Nikki Reed would be perfect for Ana Steele or Nina Dobrev, either one would be great!

    • Laned

      Felicity Jones would be an excellent choice to star opposite Ian Somerhaulder. She has the looks and the innocence, whilst he has the eyes and the requisite smirk and bad boy element.

    • jamie

      Alexis Bledel!!!!!

    • Emma

      Emily Browning or Emilia Clarke for Ana

    • Natalie

      Alexis Bledel has got to be Ana, after seeing an unofficial trailer on You Tube....she's how I imagine Ana to be 🙂

    • tanya

      I agree that Ian and Alexis B. are great choices and def fit with thoses eyes and her dark hair and blue eyes!

    • Melissa

      I think Jenna Dewan-Tatum has the perfect look for Ana! Pair her with Channing and it's a win win.

    • Desiree


    • April

      Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder would be perfect but even Emmy Rossum or Minka Kelly would be better than some of the choices offered here.

    • jess

      Alexis Bledel as Ana
      Henry Cavill or Matthew Bomer as Christian
      Dianna Agron as Kate
      Chace Crawford as Elliott
      Angelina Jolie as Mrs Robinson

    • Deb

      I cannot believe Amanda Seyfried is in the poll. She has bug eyes, oily looking skin and is not pretty at all. There are so many beautiful women and these are the four ladies can they come up with? I love Kristen Stewart...but her eyes are brown not BLUE. I hope whoever is chosen...fits the description as the ANA in the book! I would even say put Katy Perry as Ana before any of these ladies!

    • Kathryn W.

      My pick for Ana would be Emilia Clark and for Christian it would be Chris Hemsworth. Chris has the looks (those eyes!!) and a voice that can make you melt.

    • Sammy

      Aurelia Scheppers is PERFECT for this.

    • Sammy
    • Mary

      I agree 100% on Alexis Bledel

    • Lynette

      I would like to see Alexis Bledel as Ana Steele and either Mat Bomer or Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey.Blake Lively would make a great Katherine Kavanagh.

    • Tia

      Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder.

    • Married

      Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder would be PERFECT!!!!!!! I would def. go see the movie!

    • Amy

      Alexis BLedel for Ana. NOT that Ian guy... Hes too short! 5' 9" is no where tall enough to play Christian.

    • Heather

      Definitely ALEXIS BLEDEL!!! Perfect choice!

    • Lena

      ALEX BLEDEL and Matthew Bomer !!!!!!!!!!

      • eni

        I totally agree with you Lena :))))

    • eni

      I have the same questions as you 🙁
      Alexis Bledel is the Anastasia Steele that we all want for the movie.

    • denny


    • zana

      I agree, it should really be alexis bledel! her profile fits perfectly. I'm sure she can portray the role excellently.

    • Karianne

      ALEXIS BLEDEL is the perfect for the role of Anastasia Steele. She has pretty blue eyes, and pretty brown hair. She looks innocent and extremely sweet!. Kristen Stewert looks like a junkie and I've had enough of her since Twilight! not think she fit the role. too tense and nervous. and the other does not fit into the role. they are no good actors

  • Mallory Magee

    I belive that Felicity Jones would be PERFECT as Anatasia Steele and Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey!

    • Trish

      I totally agree...Felicity Jones....

    • Rebecca C

      I agree completely with both choices! Or Chris Pines as Christian.

  • Shelby

    I think Lucy Hale would make an awesome Anastasia Steele!

    • LaceyLou

      Lucy Hale!!!!!!!! 🙂

    • Lani

      Lucy Hale is is on my top list..She's gorgeous, I still have no idea who should play Christian I think they should choose someone who isn't well known though give us a new face to lust over

    • Jennifer

      I think:
      Ana- Lucy Hale
      Christian- Henry Cavill (off of The Tudors and Immortals)
      Elliot- Seth Peterson (off of Burn Notice, perfect fit)

  • Katie

    Lea Michele would be 50% perfect. The kicker is the blue eyes... do any of these ladies have dark steele blue eyes and dark untamed hair? No, they should really find a "new star"

  • Theresa27

    None of these. I really like the thought of cam gigadent as christian and emilia clarke as Ana

    • Leigh

      Emilia Clarke-- I would never have thought of her until you said that. But I could see it working. I also kind of like Alexandra Daddario. She has these crazy blue eyes.

    • Sarah Jade

      i Love emilia clark in game of thrones but i dont think i could see her as anna after being the bad ass kahleesi.

    • Jen Bryan

      I could totally see Emilia Clarke as Ana Steele... I was thinking Ian Somerhalder for awhile as Christian, but now I'm starting to see Matt Bomer (Magic Mike & White Collar) in the role of Christian.

    • Kellie Cox

      I love Chris Pine as Christian, though he's a little too old I think.
      I think Amanda Seyfried would be the best actress for the part,
      but she doesn't have the look.
      Nina Dobrev is almost too exotic looking for Ana.
      I'm so worried that whoever they cast is going to ruin
      Christian and Ana for me anyway.

    • sdmcxian

      I have ALWAYS thought Cam Gigandet or Alex Pettyfer for Grey. As for Ana quite frankly l LOVE Emilia Clarke to play her although I never really put anyone in that role except a brunette. I hate that people are suggesting True Blood characters (even though it is one of my fav shows) or Ian (too boy next door)

  • Melodie

    alexandra daddario!!!!! Beautiful and sultry looking

    • KP

      Alexandra Daddario and Ian Somerhalder as Ana and Christian .. PERFECT!!!

      • Alicia

        Alexandra Daddario would be amazing. She totally looks like the part.. If they cast Kristin and Rob I'm definitely NOT going to see it. They don't fit the part at all and it'll totally ruin the story for me.

    • Leigh

      Yes! I was just saying on another post how I could see Alexandra working. She definitely has the blue eyes for it. And I love Ian Somerhalder, but he is my close second vote to Alexander Skarsgard. Both of them are bad boys in my opinion, so really either would work 🙂

    • Sarah Jade

      She definitely looks the part.

    • Alex

      Alexandra Daddario as Ana. !!!

  • Traci

    Jennifer Lawrence!!!

  • Stephanie

    Brittany Snow with brown hair - She's perfect

  • Amy

    My 2 top pics are Alexis Bledel and Allison Williams! Here are their links on IMDB for photos and more info. I really like Allison Williams. She is on the new HBO show GIRLS and she is perfect. .....She is kind of innocent and awkard but beautiful.

    • Leigh

      I love the idea of Allison Williams! She's innocent looking and very beautiful. Plus, she's sort of a "newbie" to acting, so she doesn't have a reputation yet for being a certain kind of character.

    • Amand

      Allison Williams!!! She's perfect.

  • Anouk

    Allison Williams!!!

  • Jenna

    Leighton meester!!!

  • Vesna G

    Emma Stone!!! She would be perfect! Her & Ryan Gosling are so good together! 🙂

  • Cerstin Wagner

    I've seen pictures of Zooey Deschanel (I don't know if I wrote the name right) and thought she would be a great Ana: brown hair and big blue eyes

    • Kimberley

      Zooey dushenal don't know how to spell her name but she is perfect for anastasia

  • Mary

    I think Lucy Hale would be great as Ana, but I think she would play a great Mia also, either way she should be cast. Never even thought about Alexis Bledel she would be great but don't think she would ever go for it. Please whatever you do dont cast Kristen Stewert she will destroy it. I think Amanda Seyfried should play Kate, not Ana

  • Brittany

    Emmy Rossum or Lucy Hale

    • Jennifer

      I agree with Emmy Rossum

    • Kate

      Emmy Rossum would be amazing as Ana! She's got the awesome hair, the sweet shy girl look, and she can also do hot and sexy!

  • Kimberly

    Alexis Bledel......WHAT???? No way. There is no poll that I have seen that had her name even attached to it. They should use a lesser known actress. None of the women on this list OR Alexis Bledel could pull this off. Definitely no Twilight twits should be attached to this project in any way. To me, they're all type-cast as vampires already anyway.

    • Sarah Jade

      I agree, but nina doberv & ian somerhalder have a great connection & would be perfect i think.

  • Sara

    Elizabeth Olsen.

  • Jim

    AnnaLynne McCord

  • Katharine McPhee

  • Kristi

    Emmy Rossum! Beautiful and looks innocent!

  • Shawn

    Natalie Portman...someone with some substance...

    • Kimmie

      I thought of her too. I think she would be good.

  • sara

    anne hathaway!!!

    • Clare G

      Anne Hathaway. big innocent eyes,long lovely dark hair -the perfect Anna Steel. its a given!

  • Col

    Anne Hathaway!

  • Mimi

    I still think that Chyler Leigh (Lexie from Grey's Anatomy) would be awesome as Ana! She's beautiful..

    My Christian is still up in the air.. I want Matt Bomer but I know that can't happen.. 🙁

    • Jen Bryan

      Why couldn't Matt Bomer get the role? I think he would be perfect.

    • Ashley

      I honestly when reading picture Eric Dane as Christian. He's gorgeous and has that rough and rugged look that makes him so dreamy.

  • Lola

    I would really like to see an actress not well known. Ana is suppose to be brunette not blonde so i personally dont think amanda could pass it. I really like Ashley Benson to play Katie. As for Christian he can be tricky I have always like Ian Somerhalder to play it , but recently I have been growing on Matt Bomer he wouldnt be too bad as Christian. Either one would be perfect.
    With Ana I am still searching the perfect Ana
    Felicity Jones, Leightoon Meester are not so bad compared to the ones mentioned above.

    Has anyone seen the similarities between Chuck Bass (Ed westwick) in gossip girl? small similarities I have been comparing after reading this book. He would do anything to be with blair, buy her gifts, billionaire, owns his own company, private jet, etc... does anyone agree?

    • CG



      • kellie

        Ashley Greene and Jessie Pavelka as Ana and Christian. No doubt about it. They have both done some acting but aren't overexposed and they fit the ages and descriptions of the characters well.

  • Katie

    Maggie Gyllenhaal

  • Amb

    I think Felicity Jones would make the perfect Anastasia Steele and Alex Pettyfer as Christian Grey :]

  • Liz

    Emmy Rossum. she can be both innocent and sexy as hell

  • Alexis Bledel IS Ana! Hands down!

  • Karen

    Why is Kristen Stewart on the poll? It's already been announced that they will NOT be using the actors from Twilight!

    • Donna

      I don't even know why anyone would want Kristin. She is a horrible actress

  • Jennifer

    Ashley Greene or Emmy Rossum.
    They would both look great with Ian Somerhalder!! Who should be cast as Christian

  • Lisa

    Elizabeth Olsen, and of course Ian Somerhalder

  • Jamie

    Alexis bledel......she would be amazing with her big blue innocent eyes and dark hair!

  • Lecy

    Lena Dunham or Emma Stone!!!!

  • Tilly

    Ashley Green as Anastacia and Henry Cavill as Christian

  • Emily

    Alexis bledel

  • Ashley

    Emilia Clarke or Allison Williams!!!!

  • Brittany

    Blake lively

    • Ashie

      Marla sokoloff would be a great Ana I think,
      Blake lively as Kate
      Kim cattrall as mrs Robinson (elena)

  • Mila Kunis or Alexis Bledel

    • milan Kunis would be perfect, or an unknown!

  • Ann

    I like Alexis Biedel as Anastasia
    Amanda Seyfried would be a perfect Kate

    Christian in my mind has always been Ryan Gosling-have you seen those abs, heavenly 🙂

  • Melissa

    Alexis Bledel

  • RCA

    Emmy Rossum

  • melissa

    Emma Stone !!!

  • Shannon

    Alexis Bledel!

  • trena

    olivia wilde.

  • Kelly

    Felicity Jones to play Ana!

    • Katie

      I had this picture in my head of Ana while I was reading without having ever seen the actress Felicity Jones but when I saw her it was like seeing the exact girl I had in my mind for Ana come to life! She is Ana in perfect personification!

  • emamamma

    Yep, ALEXIS BLEDEL is the perfect choice for Ana. ALEXANDER SKARSGARD is the perfect choice for Christian too. Tired of these guys with bright blue eyes being figured, his eyes are NOT blue!!! A blue bright eyed hottie isn't right for the part.

  • Ashley Greene would be perfect. She's my choice for Ms. Steele.

  • Krystal

    Alex pettyfer as christian grey!!!!

    • Misst

      I agree is is hot and young enough

  • Nicole

    Allison Williams would be perfect. She is hot when she bites her lip

  • Olivia wilde or zooey deschanel

  • Tmn12

    ALEXIS BLEDEL for sure.

  • Amanda

    Alexis Bledel or Lyndsey Fonseca would be great for Ana!

  • Andrea

    Daenerys Targaryen!!

  • R

    Emmy Rossum!

  • Alexis bledel or Ann hathaway!! Please please please not kristin Stewart!!

  • Erika

    Ann Hathaway!

  • Amanda

    Alexis Bledel or Lyndsey Fonseca would be great for Ana. Without a doubt, Henry Cavill for Christian!

    • Weronika

      I agree with you Amanda 🙂
      "Alexis Bledel or Lyndsey Fonseca would be great for Ana"
      ..."Henry Cavill for Christian!" - not 100% sure, but could be 🙂

      • Misst

        awesome Henry for sure and Lyndsey is beautiful

        • Crystal

          Lyndsy Fonseca as Ana and Matt Bomer as Christain. Without a doubt these two would perfect.

          • winnie

            Lyndsy Fonseca and Matt Bomer.. they're perfect!

  • Jessica

    I vote Hayden Paniettere for Anastasia Steele and William Levy for Jose

  • Olivia

    ALEXIS BLEDEL I don't know why she is not on here she was one of the first ones suggested when this all blew up

  • Jessica

    I vote Hayden Paniettere for Anastasia Steele and William Levy for Jose

  • sophie

    Rachel McAdams looks just like i picture ana! i think shoulf would be amazing at the roll!

  • Wendy

    Michelle Trachtenberg as Ana!!!

    • Lisa

      Finally!!! I totally agree. She's the one who's stood out for me.

      • Phyllis

        Ana - Michelle Trachtenberg
        Christian - Henry Cavill <3 The man is a greek god!

  • Riley

    Lucy Hale....

    ANYONE but Kristen Stewart. She cannot act and would ruin the movie like her and Robert Pattinson did with Twilight.

  • Veronica

    # 1 Lucy Hale
    #2 Emmy Rossum
    #3 Ashley Greene

  • Diandra

    ALEXANDRA DADDARIO ALL THE WAYYY!!! She is THE PERFECT Ana!!! And Ian NEEDSSS to be Christian!!!!

  • Lulu


  • Lish

    Alexis Bledel

  • Riley

    Lucy Hale....

    ANYONE but Kristen Stewart. She cannot act and would ruin the movie like her and Robert Pattinson did with Twilight.

    Oh and one more thing.... Ian Somerhalder for Christian please:)

  • Tonya

    How about Jane Levy from Subergatory. She would be great.

  • cesaly

    for ana i think nina dobrev and as christian ian somerholder they have great chemistry together and ian plays the dark and sexy very well

  • tricia

    Anna kendrick as Anna and Alex pettyfer as Christian!

  • Brenda

    I really like Emmy Rossum as a choice for Ana Steele...

    • Brittannya

      I imagine Emma Roberts or Dakota Fanning as Ana.

  • Christie

    I the four final choices the look nothing like I imagend it needs to be someone fresh a new face otherwise il find it hard to see ana at her best and I belive the same with mr grey

  • I think Ian Somerhalder should be Christian Grey and Nina Dobrev or Amanda Seyfried should be Ana. 😉 Can't wait for the movie! Hurry up!!!

    • Elija

      Nina Dobrev

  • Nicole

    Allison Williams would be perfect. She is hot when she bites her lip.

  • Andrea

    And for Christian Grey 'Henry Cavill'

  • Pam

    Rooney Mara!

  • Christie

    I the four final choices the look nothing like I imagend it needs to be someone fresh a new face otherwise il find it hard to see ana at her best and I belive the same with mr grey

  • Andrea

    And for Christian Grey 'Henry Cavill'

  • Shelly

    Lucy Hale!

  • Linda

    Emilia Clarke - beauty, acting and she will do nudity or Lyndsy Fenseca (Nikita) - the looks but I am not sure about her acting. Also like Alexis Beidel too.

  • Stephanie

    I love the idea of having either Alexis Bledel or Emmy Rossum play Ana. There both skinny, pale, brunette, and innocent looking. Bledel also has the amazing blue eyes, but you can always give Rossum contacts.

  • Ash

    Emma Stone

  • Stephanie

    I love the idea of having either Alexis Bledel or Emmy Rossum play Ana. There both skinny, pale, brunette, and innocent looking. Bledel also has the amazing blue eyes, but you can always give Rossum contacts. But Christian Grey MUST be Ian Somerhalder!

  • Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, Chyler Leigh or Lucy Hale!

  • Kala

    Lucy Hale as Ana!

  • Amy

    I think Emma Stone would be perfect!!!

  • Ash

    Emma Stone- Ana; Chris Hemsworth- Christian; Jennifer Aniston- Ms. Robinson

  • Shannon

    Anne Hathaway and PLEASE NO KRISTEN STEWART!

  • Littlekew (Karen)

    Emilia Clarke as Anastasia, she was excellent in Game of
    Ryan Gosling or Matt Bomer for Christian.. x

  • Kerry

    I think it should be Rooney Mara! she is an amazing actress and i think she would play the part very well

  • leona howells i think she would be great

  • Weronika

    My choice is Alexis Bledel for Anastasia (she looks very innocent and great without makeup), Christian Bale for Christian Grey and Emma Stone for Kate...

  • Jessica

    Alexis Bledel !!

  • Monja

    Alexis Bledel!!

    or Alexandra Daddario!!

  • Beth

    Kaya Scodelario

    • She's my choice

  • Kayla

    Emma Watson (Harry Potter) or Alexis Bledel. I also think Chris Hemsworth would be an amazing Christian.


    Emmy Rossum would be PERFECT.

  • Glenda Smith

    Alexis Blidel or Nina Dobrev with Ian Somerholder as Christian

    • april agnes

      I was thinking of Alexis Bledel

  • Danielle

    Alexis Bledel and Allison Williams are my top choices for Ana, I think that they have that natural beauty and of course the blue eyes. Some of the girls suggested are too "hard" looking to play Ana.. shes more innocent. And Matt Bomer is the absolute PERFECT Christian Grey.. look at some of his pictures from White Collar.. he as the perfect look! Blake Lively as Kate also!

  • Annick

    Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder get my vote!

  • Cathy

    Got to be Anne Hathaway with contacts

  • Sammi

    Emilia Clarke would make a great Ana, shes amazing in Game of Thrones and looks very "Ana-like" with her natural brown hair. Plus she isn't very well know so can make her own mark. Kristin Stewart would be rubbish, shes so dull its unreal and only has one look. Elizabeth Olsen would make a fab Kate! 🙂

  • Julia

    Lyndsey Fonseca would be perfect! Paired with Scott Elrod as Christian Grey.

  • Amber

    Elizabeth Olsen...just color the hair!

  • Rachael

    I think that Dianna Argon would be PERFECT!! She is beautiful w/o being overly sexy and she has that innocent face and eyes. She is just right!

  • 1234

    Alexis Bledel!

  • Kristie

    Alexis Bledel totally!

  • Laura

    Alexis Bledel all the way! She has just the right of share and gumption Anastasia has!

  • christine mason

    scarlett johannson with dark hair

  • Kasey

    Alexandra Daddario, Leighton Meester or Anne Hathaway for Ana.

    James Scott or Henry Cavill for Christian.

  • Melissa

    i think Minka Kelly would be great casting for Ana without a doubt.

  • Alexis Bledel!!!!!!

  • Sydney

    Actress Katie McGrath would be PERFECT for the role of Ana Steele!!

  • Beth Scherer

    Amanda Seyfried!!!! AND Chris Hemsworth!!!
    Now those two would be perfect!!! NOOO way to that Ian!!! He is NOT Christian Gray AT ALL!!!

  • Amanda

    Alexis Bledel! She would kill it. Henry Cavill or Matt Bomer for Christian. I can't get past Ian Somerholder being Damon.

    • Stacey

      I can't get past Ian = Damon

  • Jess

    Kelly Minka or Rachel Bilson

  • Shannon

    Mila Kunis! for Anna
    Love Ryan Gosling for Christian but I might be swayed towards Channing Tatum 😉

  • Sarah

    Lyndsy forseca would be a perfect pick!

  • Shantelle

    Aelexis Bleder as Ana!!!!!!

  • Carli

    Emma Stone OR someone who never heard of before!

  • Christine

    I think Sophia Bush!!

  • Meredith

    Alexis Bedel has it all. The whit, personality and look. Top choice for sure. I think if she would have showed up on the poll the outcome would be a different.

  • angie

    Totally think Anne hathaway or chyler leigh from Grey's. I am obsessed w/ Ryan Reynolds for Christian!!

  • Kristee

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect for Ana!!!!!!!! Matt Bomer for Christian for sure!!

  • Kirby

    I think it should be someone relatively unknnown.

  • Deborah Anderson

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect for Ana, although I did picture Kirsten Stewart when I was reading the book.

  • mj

    Emma roberts and ian somerhold as christian

    • Ann

      Emma Roberts or Mila Kunis

  • Maddy

    I would love to see Alexis bledel as Anastasia Steele....she was born for that role!! why isnt she an option in the poll?

  • Lorien

    Alexis Bledel should definitely be Ana!!! And Ian Somerhalder as Christian 🙂

  • Pamela

    Blake Lively as KATE...that would be perfect.
    IAN SOMERHALDER as Christian!
    ANA? Well none of the ones mentioned that's for sure!
    Taylor should be Alfred from batman :))

  • Amy

    Anna Kendrick would be a great Ana!

  • KC

    Alexandra Daddario as Anastasia
    Colin Egglesfield as Christian
    ---stop talking about Kristen Stewart please, and Ian Somerhalder is WAY to girly-looking!

  • Tiffany

    Alexis bledel would be perfect. Her and ian somerhalder would make the movie!!!!!

  • Isael

    Alexis Bledel is way to old! I think it should be Lyndsy Fonseca!H

  • Gea

    emmy rossum

  • Rita

    My top 2 Christians are Ian Somerhalder and Jake Gyllenhaal; my top 2 Anas are Anne Hathaway and Scarlett Johannson. 🙂

  • Jenny

    Emma Roberts. So many of the actresses mentioned are too old. Ana is 21 and needs to look 21, not 30 trying to look 21!

  • Robyn

    Anna Kendrick! I say she is beautiful, innocent and has a little adventurous side to her!!

  • Perla

    Alexis bledel !!!!!!!!!!!! She's perfect!!! And Chris (sp) as Christian 😀

  • Karen

    Emmy Rossum and Scott Elrod

  • DM

    Emmy Rossum would be perfect!!!!

  • Christina

    Lily Collins as Ana and Ian Somerhalder or Henry Cavill as Christian!

  • Jenny F

    Alexis Bledel!!

  • Perla

    * Chris Hemsworth!!! As Christian

  • Isabel

    Alexis Bledel

  • jessica

    emma stone would be perfect and alexander askawrd from.true blood he plays eric they woukd be awesome.just how I pictureb them

  • Elizabeth R.

    Alexis Bledel = The perfect Ana. Either Chris Hemsworth or Channing Tatum as Christian. I hate that people are picking these small frame men to play Christian.....he has to be a tall muscular guy! Hair color and eye color are easy fixes for Hollywood!

  • Ls

    Michelle Trachtenberg

  • Samantha Baker

    Emilia Clarke would be a perfect Ana! Paired up with the yummy Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey.

  • nichola

    From that list it would bd either LIly or Shaile. But personally it would need to be a relatively unknown person and under 25 years old as Ana is only 21-22 in the books. So you cant have an acteess in her late 20s or 30s. Ok yeah i get that they are experience in making films and make up is wonderful now, bt Ana is a very shy person yet honest and open minded when she needs to be vt she is also self conscious of her body therefore the actress needs to be roughly the same age. My opinion!

  • becca

    LUCY HALE!!!!!!!!!!

  • Odine

    I would like somebody unknown up and coming it will be an amazing chance for someone to put there heart and sole into a great role and become famous at the same time.

  • najoua

    Mila Kunis

  • CG

    I was stuck on Leighton Meester for a while then i came across Lucy Hale... But i amlost Forgot about Alexis Bedel.... OMG This is gonna be one tough choice.... Matt Bomer IS ChristisnGrey.

  • Penny

    Jennifer Love Hewitt I think, and Im begging for Ian Somerhalder as Christian!

  • bam gavit

    emmy rossum for sure

  • Stephanie

    Emma Stone!!!

    Emma Stone!!!

  • Katherine

    Elizabeth Olsen!

    What about Rachel McAdams??

  • Nikki

    Kat Dennings!!!

  • Heather

    Lucy Hale

  • Katharina

    Alexis Bledel!!! Only her!!!

  • Brandy

    Ashley Green as Ana and Blake Lively as Kate. Chace Crawford as christian.

  • Gena

    Ashley Green! She would be the PERFECT Ana!

  • Melanie

    Alexis Bledel!!!

  • AmandaNJ


  • jaclyn miller

    Totally going for Alexis bledel

  • Jannette

    Lucy Hale!!

  • Robert

    Alexis Bledel is my first choice and my second is Anna Kendrick. And the ONLY choice for Christian Grey in my opinion is Matt Bomer! A lot of people are saying Kristin and Rob should play them, but I'm 110% against this. It would kill the wonderful story for me.

  • Amber

    Absolutely NOT Kristin Stewart! Sorry, she just doesn't even match her character!!!! I think Lily is a good choice. And Ian would make a great Christian!

  • Alexis Bledel would be perfect!

  • Ashley

    Alexis Bledel is the perfect fit for the character of Ana. If you watch her role in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants you will know that I'm spot on. Her sheer innocence to sexuality in all forms is unbelievably convincing and her character as Rory in Gilmore Girls proves completely that she is able to play up to the well educated, rehearsed college graduate... Not to mention, Alexis Bledel has already portrayed a college graduate in Post-Grad. If anyone other than Alexis Bledel gets castes for this part, I'm not sure I'll feel the same about it because her face is who I put to the character. As for Christian, I started with Christian Bale's character as Batman in Dark Knight, but because he is a tad older, I'm picturing Matt Bomer. Kate of course has to be Blake Lively. Think about it.

  • selena dammen

    Alexis Bledel all the way!!! And Ian will always be my Mr. Grey!!!

  • Rachel

    Alexis Bledel!!!! NOT Kristen Stewart!!!!

  • AbCab

    Emmy Rossum!!! inocent girl with curly brown hair! Shes around the age too right?

    • Jolay

      I really, really like Emmy Rossum for Anastasia. I like Michael Fassbender for Christian, but then he might not pass for a 28 yr old.

  • Lyanba

    Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer!

  • gail wiseman

    Katie Holmes is my pick for Anastasia

  • Shannon

    Emma Roberts with long brown hair for Anastasia Steele and Cam Gigandet for Christian Grey! 

    Emma Roberts has that innocent plus great and a lip...that totally draws you in!

  • Anna

    Lucy Hale or Alexis Bledel, absolutely NO Kristen Stewart. She butchered Twilight enough.

  • Jessica Stroup for Ana!!!!!

  • Nicole

    Most of these actresses look to old to be 19! I love Maggie G. And Emmy Rossum but really!? My vote is for Analeigh Tipton. She was on ANTM a few years back and was most recently in Crazy Stupid Love as the babysitter. She's beautiful, can play awkward, looks young and I think can pull off Anastasia Steel.

  • P. Sawyer

    I think Ana should be Lucy Hale, Alexis Bledel or somebody Who we did not known yet...

    I like Kristen Stewart but PLEASE she is not Ana, she always will be Bella Swan for me so she won't be good choice! Honestly none of these actresses can be good this role!

    The perfect Christian Grey is Ian Somerhalder or Hanry Cavill!

  • teresa

    alexis bledel to play anastacia !

  • Melanie


  • thehouseofvera

    Alexis Bledel or Nina Dobrev.. for Ana. Ian Sommerhalder or Alexander Skarsgard for Christian. 😉

  • Leonae


  • Jeanne

    Nina Dobrev

  • ruth

    Lucy Hale or Alexis Blidel ... either would make me happy

  • Erin

    emmy rossum definitely

  • Patrice Murray

    Mila Kunis, Alexis Blidel, or Emma Stone

  • Kimberly

    I think Emma Roberts would pull off the naive, inexperienced book-worm really well.

  • Lynz

    Felicity Jones, please

  • stacy


  • Holly

    Absolutely not Kristen Stewart, she's a horrible actress. And definitely not Shailene Woodley...not right either. Alexis Bledel would be good for the role, she's really the only established actress I think would be remotely right to play Ana.

  • Joanna

    Leighton Meester!

  • Ana

    **Emily Rossum as Anastasia and Ian Somerhalder as Christian**

  • Cole

    Emma stone!

  • Nicole

    Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerholder.. It's a perfect match!!

  • Stephanie B

    Alana O'brien! She is in a Freschetta Pizza commercial.

  • Kerri

    Kiera knightly as Ana and Matt bomer as christian

  • Melissa

    Alexis Bliedel all the way...I read these and fell in love with these book but if the twilight twit comes near it youbest believe I will not go see

  • C

    Emma Stone and Chris Pine

  • Jan

    Alexis Bledel for sure

  • April

    I would cast "nobody's" for the roles of anyone in the book. Make some new stars. in my opinion this book should not be made into a movie as you can not show half the stuff. Twilight books were so much better then the movies as well as the hunger games. Please keep our imaginations working by not making a movie.

  • casi

    Anne Hathaway would be perfect

  • Cat

    Emma Stone.

  • brittani

    Shelley Henning

  • Kelly

    I HATE the idea of Alexis Bledel or Kristin Stewart as Ana. They are both too innocent-looking for the role! It should be ASHLEY GREENE!! She would be great.

  • Shell

    Diffinately has to be Alexis Bledel she would be perfect, the trailer on you tube proves that! 🙂

  • alicia

    Nina Dobrev

  • Jennifer

    I am on the Alexis Bledel train. She would be perfect!! And Matt Bomer as Christian!

  • Lori

    Jessica Biel & Anne Hathaway.

  • Ivey

    Alexis Bledal for Ana!!
    As for Christian as much as I love Ian Somerholder he is not right for the part he is to slender. Chris Hemsworth is perfect!

  • Nikki

    I think Nina Dobrev as Ana and Ian Somerhalder as Christian!

  • Betty

    Oh yes! Alexis Bledel would be a great choice. It's definitely a tie for me between Alexis Bledel and Amanda Seyfried. They are both quiet, somewhat timid girls, which is exactly what Anastasia is. Perfect picks, one or the other.

  • Linda

    Alexis bledel Would be brill..

  • Sheri

    Katie Holmes would be a good Ana.. Next choice would be Lucy Hale.

  • Sue

    I think Lucy Hale would be perfect she is beautiful young and completely Fifty Shades material !!

  • Shannon

    Alexis Bledel by far is the best for Anna!!!
    Please not Kristen Stewart!

  • Chelsea

    Nina Dobrev or Camilla Belle

  • Kristen

    I think Jennifer Lawrence would be perfect for Ana. And Alexander Skarsgard for Christian. I thought of them both while reading. Also I think Blake Lively would be perfect for Kate.

  • Helena

    It's clear, Alexis Bledel with Ian Somerhalder

  • Lisa

    Alexis Bledel is beautiful and she is what I picture Ana as xx

  • Danylle

    Emmy Rossum would be the perfect Ana Steele she has just the right amount sexiness and innocence that is the character!

  • Cynthia

    EMMY ROSSUM!!!!!!!!

  • May

    Zooey Deschanel!!!!!!

  • Melissa

    I think Sophia Bush would be great as Ana. My second choice would be Kristen Stewart 🙂

  • Rachel

    Emelia Clarke!

  • Rach


  • Jen

    Ashley Greene would be a great Ana Steele

    • Lisa

      I totally agree!!

  • Jess

    Alex Biedel Mila Kunis or Emma Stone

  • Marlene

    Lucy Hale!!! For PLL!!!

  • Rosie

    Alexis Bledel would make a perfect Ana Steele!!!

  • Christina

    Shenae Grimes or Alexis Bledell!! More Alexis than anything 🙂

  • Stephanie

    Nina Dobrev , or Mila Kunis

  • Trina

    Eliza Dushku... Brunnette and can play a smart ass.

  • Rachel

    I think Leighton Meester could totally pull it off!

  • Lindsey

    Alexandra Daddario and Cam Gigandet

  • Dawn McMahon

    Jessica Stroup has my vote!!!

  • Kelly

    I would like to throw Chyler Leigh (Lexie Grey from Greys Anatomy) into the mix. I think she would make the perfect Ana.

  • Alexis Bledel.

  • Lauren

    Alexis Bledel as Anna and Bradly Cooper as Christian

  • Ann

    Emma Stone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • kim

    I like Alexandra Daddario from white collar. I was posting her pic on the fifty shades face book page before anyone else. She would be a great Ana!! And I'm warming up to Henry Cavill for Christian.

  • Jessica Palmer

    Alexis Bedel is The Only Actress for this role.

  • AJM

    Emma Stone or Ashley Green

  • meg

    Alexis Bledel and Blake Lively all the way. They are the only characters I could picture while reading the book, as I didn't have a clue or the others. While reading, I just felt like thus was Rory Gilmore's story post college. It was like the author wrote it while watching a Gilmore Girls marathon.

  • LaceyLou

    Lucy Hale!!!!!!!! 🙂

  • Donna

    Ian Somerhaldt DOES NOT fit Christian's profile. He is not a tall man, no way near muscular & toned body. He is not built that way. Also hair color is not right.

    Why is his name even mentioned? There are so many other actors that fit's Grey physical appreance than Ian who does not. Be real!

  • Kayzel

    Miss Steele - Alexis Bledel Christian - Matt Bomer 🙂

    • Marlene

      Ashley Green will be great too...PLEASE NOT THE TWILIGHT PPL!!!!

  • Carla

    Lucy Hale

    • Morgan

      Lucy Hale

  • naomi

    i dont think any of them should do it its to kinky and errotic it should be someone we dont know so they can play it by the book we all fell in love with the book so y not make the film the same

  • Brodwyn

    Some of you sound as though you haven't even read these books!

    1. Anna is 21 not 19.
    2. She's not awkward! She's determind. Focussed. She's on her own path until Christian railroads her.
    3. They should cast an unfamiliar face. These actresses mentioned above are too shallow to play this part. They need not just a pretty face, but someone with real emotional depth.

  • Sara

    Emilia Clark all the way!!!!!!!

  • Angelina3

    Ian Somerhalder has to be Christian Grey and then for Ana ...either Emmy Rossum or Felicity Jones are my picks...

  • Ashley

    Anne Hathaway

  • Dana

    Allison Williams because she is not as well-known so she won't take away from the story, but she fits the description perfectly!

  • Kristina

    Alexis Blede

  • Lori

    I'm going with Mila Kunis.

  • Calla

    Nina Dobrev!! How are Alexis Bledel and the others even options??!?!?!?!?!?!?! AND Ian Somerhalder or Alexander Skarsgard for Christian!!

  • Jenn

    Emma Stone! As a brunette of course.

  • Areli A.

    ALEXIS BLEDEL would be perfect as Ana! Big blue eyes, brown hair, pale complexion. She looks absolutely innocent, which is what we expect from "Ana".

  • Anne

    ALEXANDRA DADDARIO for sure!!!! She's perfect.

  • Chelsea

    Ether ASHLEY GREEN from twilight she plays Alice or ROONEY MARA from girl w dragon tattoo they are both great actresses who ate gorgeous!!! Seyfried would be terrible and Stewart would too!!! Ryan Phillipe should be Christian!

  • Mandy

    Mila kunis should play Anastasia Steele.

  • Nicolette Olivier

    I agree with Alexis biedel but I think bradely cooper as Christian grey would be good.

  • Anna

    Rachel McAdams!!!!!!!!!

  • Mary

    My vote is for Zooey Deschanel; she has enough quirky, awkward innocence yet is stunningly beautiful when she's dressed up.

  • Lindsay

    didnt know who Alexis bledel was so googled her and definately an Ana Steele contender it's those big blue eyes

  • Olga

    Felicity Jones!!! Definitely needs some recognition as ANA!!

  • Jo Z

    Emma Stone...I can't imagine Kristen Stewart at all! And Shailene Woodly looks innocent and naive but I can't imagine her pulling off the physical chemistry with any man who plays Christian.

  • Chris

    I read the introductory pieces to this when it was Twilight fan fiction so I naturally see Kristen Stewart as Anastasia. That said, I think Shailene Woodley would also do well.

  • Cynthia Woodard

    both of these roles should be played by newcomers because everyone else is linked with other type cast roles. however hey put Adam Lambert as christian gay or not he fits the bill for someone who likes to be kinky!!!!!!!!!!!!! just change the hair color the eyes are already mesmerising!!!!!!!!!

  • JE

    Definitely EMILIA CLARKE. No Alexis Bledel...

  • Cheryl

    My choice would be EMILIA CLARKE!!! She isnt a option above. Kristen is to known for the Twilight Saga, also Amanda is not what I had in mind. If you put Kristen as Ana you should just put Robbert Pattinson as Christian. Then you wouldn't be watching Fifty Shades of Grey, you would be watching Twilight, Edward and Belle Rated X. The tween and teens would follow this movie,which would not be a good idea.

  • Megan

    Alexis Bledel

  • Tammy

    Nina Dobrev would be perfect.

  • Beverley

    I really think Alexis Bledel would be great as Ana. 🙂

  • susan

    Mila Kunis

  • Sara R

    I have had a really hard time thinking of someone who could play Ana. No one in Hollywood makes a good fit. I think they should get a newcomer. I just hope they don't get Kristen Stewart because I won't watch. She ruined Twilight and now I can't even read the books! As for Christian, the only person I see is Alexander Skarsgard.

  • Lisa

    Ashley Greene, DEFINITELY

  • Kristin

    Mila Kunis...would be GREAT as Ana, and Josh Duhamel for Christian!!!!

  • Becka

    Christina Ricci, with those big eyes!

  • Leyna

    Alexandra Daddario!!!! HANDS DOWN!

  • Melody
  • Naomi

    Alexis Bledel or Alexandra Daddario

    • Marissa

      Alexis Bledel or Alexandra Daddario for Ana and definantly Alexander Skarsgard or maybe Henry Cavill for Christian. No Kristen Stewart or Ashley Greene please! I like Ian pretty good although I'm not sold. Complete unknowns would be fine too.

  • Ericka

    Ashley Green or Mila Kunis as Ana Steele, Henry Cavill or Matt Bomer as Christian Grey!!!

  • Jill

    Lucy Hale or Emilia Clarke and of course, the only Christian Grey who, in my opinion, can ever live up to the character, Ian Somerhalder!!!!

  • Alicia

    I would love to see Emmy Rossum or Lucy Hale

  • Sally

    Emilia Clarke!! She is perfect - all these other girls you would have to change something, the color of the hair, color of the eyes, this girl is stunning and suits the description perfectly! As for CG - Ian Somerhalder just too small & short! Henry Cavill or Chris Hemsworth all the way!

    • Jordan

      Emilia Clarke for Anastasia, and Henry Cavill for Christian!

  • Cinny

    Alexis Blede or Mila Kunis are the best choices Kristen Stewert shouldn't even be in the top picks at all!

  • michelle reed

    alexis bledel so perfect she has the innocent look about her

  • Karah

    What about EMILIA CLARKE for Ana?!

  • Bree

    ALEXIS BLEDE!!!!!!!!!!!! I love that so many others think her too! She is perfect and innocent looking and her big blue eyes!!!!!!!!

  • joy

    Mila Kunis or Lucy Hale as Anna

    Ian Somerholder as Christian!!!!!!!!!!

  • Anne S

    Nevermind them girls I want the part!!! 😉

  • michelle reed

    ian somerhalder for christian 🙂

  • sharaon

    Minka Kelly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LMD

    Natalie Portman would be amazing!

  • Joetta

    How about Zooey Deschanel for Ana? Big blue eyes, long brown hair,......

  • Aspasia

    I like Rose Byrne for the part. She can look young and coltish and then cleans up into the sexy, hot and beautiful Ana.

  • Alli Roseby

    Alexis Bledal to play Ana Steele!! She look's how the character sound's, and i know many people would love Ian Sommerholder to play Christian Grey, but i think Paul Wesley would defo suit the part as him!! Just a suggestion, BUT HURRY UP AND DO THIS MOVIE!! Later's, Baby! xXx

  • Jamie

    Allison Williams!! Matt Bomer as Christian!

  • Chrystal

    zooey deschanel

  • Whitney

    EMMA WATSON - hands down, she has the gamine and unrequiste sex appeal!!

  • Kelly Rios

    Ian Somerhalder is too scrawny /little to play Christian! Henry Cavill has the exact body type and eyes to play Christian. Those of you suggesting Alexander Skarsgard or Alex Pettifer are crazy! They look nothing like Christian. They are skinny, blonde and UGLY! Come on guys did you read the book?

    • Brown Libra

      I whole heartedly agree with everything you said...

      That being said, Christian has got to have universal appeal (young, old, black, white, latina, rich, poor, must be attracted to him)...only person I know who can do that is one William Levy...

      Google that in 3, 2, 1...

  • Kim B.

    The best options for Anna and Christian are Nina Dobrev and Chris Hemsworth....they both fit the descriptions perfectly.

  • Ami

    Alexis bledel would be perfect

  • Shelley

    This role was made for Emma Stone 🙂

  • Laurie

    Alexandra Daddario or Alexis Bledel would great for Anna! Please keep the movie as true to the books as possible. So many movies do not do the books justice. Also Jessie Pavelka for CG.

  • Anna


    • Ursula

      Yes Yes Yes EMMA all the WAY!!!!!!!!!!!

  • dls


  • Tatiana

    Matt Bomer as Christian, and as Ana Ashley Greene or Sophia Bush and i really like the idea of Alexis Bledel. Please do not put Kristen Stewart as Ana i will be very disappointed and will not watch. I'm very excited for this movie 🙂

  • Johnna

    Jessica Stroup or Alexis Bledel as Anastasia & Gabriel Macht as Christian.

  • D

    I saw Alexis Bledel as Anastasia the second a movie was mentioned! I think her innocence look and piercing eyes make her a perfect fit for Ana.

  • Heidi

    Emma Roberts - ~Julia Roberts niece

  • Christina

    Kaya Scodelario is perfect for the part. With some blue contacts you have your self Miss Anastasia Steele

  • Michele

    I think Alexis is def the best choice she has to look. There are pictures of her looking so sexy showing that she can tranform into the sexier ana. Look at when she was on MAD MEN! wow

  • becca

    i think dita von tese would fit this role nicely the woman is my sexual icon

  • Lilly Hernandez

    I didn't see thier names either in your list maybe you put the wrong ladies up there, but I like Alexis Bledel or Emilia Clarke, they have that innocence in thier eyes. At least for me anywhoo.

  • Amber

    Nina Dobrev!

    • Sarah Jade

      YES! thank you i was starting to think no one was on my side! if you've seen vampire diaries you would know ian somerhalder & nina doberv have an amazing connection & i could totally see them as anna & christian!

  • Sian

    Alexis Bledel would be good, or Sophia Bush, Zooey Deschanel

  • Jennifer Gonzalez

    Mandy Moore for Ana

  • MJ

    Alexis Bledel or even Michelle Trachtenberg would be perfect for Ana. Most definitely not Kristen Stewart, Ana's character calls for a bigger emotional range. (sorry KStew fans). I also think Henry cavill would make a great Christian Grey!

  • JROC

    I can see Emily Browning as Ana Steele. She has the innocent mousy look with big round eyes. She has beautiful pale flawless skin and she would consider the role faster than all the choices I am seeing listed on here.

    We need to be realistic as to whom would choose for this role because if we bet on actors/actresses WE really want to play in the movie, then there will be a lot of let downs before the movie even goes into production. Emily has had a similar role in Sleeping Beauty: so this is my favorite choice and I would like to see her play along side of Alex Pettyfer as Christian. He is known to be arrogant so that's a given, he is young enough and will be the perfect age by the time the movie goes into production and when the other movies are filmed. He has the hair, the eyes, the build. E L James only has a short list of choices; 3 for Ana and 4 for Christian and I would love to get me a glimpse of that list so I can narrow my list down!,0,214,314_.jpg

  • Buffy

    Megan Fox

  • Jessica

    I think Anna Kendrick's would be great. She has that shyness about her, but can obviously do love scenes too, which was briefly exposed in What to expect when you are expecting.

  • Gleysis

    Ok NO! Why isn't Lucy Hale in the poll options? come on! She's my number one choice! and she will be perfect as Ana.. I have to say if you picked Ian Somerhalder as Christian would be even more perfect!
    So they are my options, think about it, they are the best couple you can't get and they are willing to do it!

  • Linda

    Alexis Bledel would be the perfect Anastasia.

  • Sadie

    I believe Alexis Bledel & Ian Somerhalder ARE Ana Steele & Christian Grey She embodies both the innocence & sexiness & he with those eyes...they can say so much without ever uttering one syllable!!! Plus they are the ages or close enough to the ages of the characters....NOT Matt Bomer (altho he has gorgeous eyes as well or Bradley Cooper) ian plays a 20-something on VD & Alexis IS 20-something!!!! NO QUESTIONS about it....but PLEASE HOLLYWOOD DO NOT CAST KRISTEN STEWART OR AMANDA SEYFRIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOULD TOTALLY RUIN THE FILM IF EITHER ACTRESS WERE CAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are NOT Ana Steele!


    Jennifer Lawrence

  • Vanessa

    Google Analeigh Tipton (Crazy Stupid Love). She IS Anastasia Steele. Also, I could see Max Irons as Christian Grey!

  • Victoria

    I would cast Emily Rossum and Matt Bomer!!

  • Colleen

    After looking at a lot of possibilities I see Ashley Greene for Ana. I think Alexis Biedel is to innocent looking!

  • Np101

    Felicity Jones is both talented and looks exactly what is described in the book!!!! The choices given are week in my opinion!!!

  • Nss

    Jessica Lowndes

  • Britnie

    ashley rickards! She's young and not well known! She would be PERFECT 🙂

  • Angela

    Alexis Bledel !!!

  • cara adams

    I think Rachel McAdams would do great with her hair dyed brown

  • Karen

    Alexis Beidel

  • MJF

    I vote for Emilia Clarke... I was reading and saw that someone mentioned Megan Fox :-O if they get her to play Ana I will lose all hope in the movies being accurate.... and people pleaseeeeee Alexis Bledel?? Does anyone consider that she will be a 31 year old actress playing a 21 year old character???? Love her but she is just too old....

    • Shannon Sharpe

      I agree! Ian or Channing or Henry Cavill for Christian...I LOVE Rachel Mcadams or Emilia Clarke for Ana..Michelle Pfeifer HAS to to Elaina! Would LOVE to see Hugh Laurie as The Dr...Still working on the others!

  • Marlene

    I like Matt Bomer, Gosling, and Tatum. For Ana, Lucy Hale, and Blake Lively!!!

    • Angela

      With that said Matt Bomer looks exactly like I invision Christian to be.

  • Shelly

    I think Ashley Greene would be perfect!!!! I seen a picture of her with beautiful long hair and thought she is so perfect!!!! Those other pics don't suite the role.....they are way too young!!!!

  • harlie


  • crystal

    i think they should bring a new comer to play her ..i cant picture any hollywood female starts to play her they just dont fit right. and actually ana was based on kristen stewart and robert pattison in the twilight series bc of fan-fiction. but i still think the girl should be a newcomer seriously..please!!!!

  • anna

    lucy hale for obvious reasons!

  • Lisa

    Please check out Michelle Trachtenberg. She played Matthew Perry's daughter in "17 Again." I thought of her right away when I started reading the book.

  • Jennifer Pluemer


  • Mirna

    Emma Stone as Anastasia

  • Shannon Sharpe

    Ian or Channing or Henry Cavill for Christian…I LOVE Rachel Mcadams or Emilia Clarke for Ana..Michelle Pfeifer HAS to to Elaina! Would LOVE to see Hugh Laurie as The Dr…Still working on the others!

  • Marie

    Lucy Hale!!

  • Shannon

    Lucy Hale should be cast as Anastasia Steele!!! Amanda Seyfried would be my second choice.

  • Agnes A.

    Henry Cavill and Lilly Collins...

  • Colleen

    Alexis Bledel as Anna and Henry Cavill as Christian.

  • Stef

    Mila Kunis for Ana Steele!

  • Agi

    Emma Watson would be so perfect to play Ana, and TMZ posted something about casting Christian, and Mr. Hot Scott Elrod, was in the casting choice, really? come on people Emma Watson for Ana and Scott Elrod for Christian.....dont you all see the resemblance in them, they look just like the book says it!!!!!

  • Mary ann canales

    Alexis Bledel all the way!!! Ew please no Kristen Stewart! She's the worlds worse pick.

  • Kari

    Lucy Hale would be PERFECT!!!!!!!! She is shorter so any male that plays opposite of her would be wonderful. She is a wonderful actress and is the right age range.

  • britany

    Lindsy Fonseca, the Alex from Nikita

  • Ena

    Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones and Alex Pettyfer. Imagine him with a Christian Grey make over- Id see that movie countless times!

  • Shannon

    Lucy Hale should be cast as Anastasia Steele!! My second choice would be Amanda Seyfried!

  • Dani

    I think Ashley Greene is the perfect Ana

  • Megan Fox?
    She could pull it off. I think!

  • Kris R.

    Alexandra Daddario would make the PERFECT Anastasia Steele!!!

  • Taryn

    Anna Paquin would be perfect for the role of Ana! She is AMAZING on True Blood. She is beautiful and pulls off the innocent look very well!!! A lot of people are saying Alexander Skarsgard should play Christian and they already have great chemistry on True Blood!!!

  • xander_316

    Emilia Clarke

  • ashley

    Mila Kunis & Matt Bomer for the parts!!! They are perfect x

  • Becky

    Emma Watson, Anne Hathaway or Alexis Beidel

  • Brooke

    Cody Horn (she played Brooke in Magic Mike) for Anastasia. She has that naive yet playful attitide and could definitely have Ana's "smart mouth". This role needs to be filled by a NEW up and coming actress. You can't put someone in this role that has played in a major film before. Come one....I LOVE Kristen Stewart but she will forever be Bella! You can't cast someone like her in two HUGE motion pictures. And as for Christian...I am NOT an Ian Somerhalder fan! You guys need to check out Colin Egglesfield! He plays in "The Client List" as Evan! He is who I pictured throught the trilogy as Christian!! If you dont know who he is then google him! He is the most amazing gray eyes and to look at him he jsut screams power!!!! Laters, baby;)

  • Tania

    Emilia Clarke!

  • Angela

    I must say Kristen. I know she is popular right now but the reason I vote for her is she has that shy awkwardness about her that make a perfect Ana!

  • Samantha Greene

    Emilia Clarke from Game Of Thrones

  • Karissa

    Lucy Hale as Ana Steele and Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey

  • Crystal

    Katie Holmes

  • b

    Alexis Bledel

  • Kyrsten

    I also agree with Alexis Bledel.

  • Tammy

    Emmy Rossum = Ana. Henry Cavill = Christian. Lucy Hale = Mia. Armie Hammer = Elliot. Blake Lively = Kate. Ellen Barkin = Elena. Jason Statham = Taylor. Jesse Metcalfe = Jose. Joshua Dallas = Ethan. Zac Ward = Jack Hyde. Alexandra Daddario = Leila.

  • Sookie

    ALEXANDRA DADDARIO!!!! I really want them to stay true to the book because that is what made us love it. And Alexandra Daddario is hands down Anastasia in the book. Keep on mind that she's supposed to be 21 not in her 30's.

  • Kelly Barnwell

    I think Emma Watson would be perfect. She looks sweet and innocent but can also really act too. And Ryan Gosling for Christian!!!!!

  • Ashley

    Yes, Alexis! The whole point is she's innocent. Then, she's changed into being open with Christian.

  • emma

    i think Ana Steele shouldnt be played by a huge star... Alexis Bledel is the best choice for Ana!

  • Bea

    Katharine Hope McPhee is an American pop singer, songwriter and actress, co-star of the 2012 TV series Smash.

  • kristi

    Alexis Bledel all the way!

  • Raina

    Rachel Bilson

  • Brown Libra

    I like the suggestions of Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway...definitely have the experience to take on such a the Alexis and Emmy Rossum suggestions as well...they all have that innocent-but-not-that-innocent appeal...please please don't make a former child actor or someone who looks too young, I don't want to feel like I'm breaking some law when I watch this movie...I heard Dakota Fanning was considered and I almost lost my lunch...

  • Theresa

    FELICITY JONE!!!!!!!! Ana Steele has BLUE eyes, some of these actresses they are showing to play her have frickin brown, didn't they read the damn book?

  • Lori S

    Ian Somerhalder and Lily Collins

  • Kris

    None of these four choices. My vote is for Alexis Bledel or Emmy Rossum

  • Angie

    Emma Roberts should play Ana Steele. Seems innocent enough and she would get that lip biting thing down pat.
    Henry Cavill could play Christian Grey. His features reflect the character and it would be an interesting role for him.

  • SweetT


  • Peach

    My initial feeling while I was reading the book was Alexis Bledel, but she's 30 now! WAY too old to play Ana. I think that Sara Paxton would be a good option. She's 5'7, fair, skinny with big eyes. All she'd need to do is die her hair brown. They need to bring in someone fairly fresh to play Ana because it's such a racy role and the expectations are going to be HUGE.

  • Jenna Masnyka

    I like the idea of Alexis a lot, but I also like LUCY HALE!

  • stephanie

    Alexis Bledel!!!!!!!! She is basically described to the tee! As for Christian Grey....Henry Cavill!!! reguardless of who we think is sexiest he fits the part, just watch his previous roles...he could nail it! SHOUTY CAPITOLS!

  • theresa connolly

    Charlize Theron. i think she could totally do an Ana!

  • lyndsey

    I think katie Holmes should play annastasia steele as she is like the girl next door and can also be she needs a good break to make her mark again.

    • Love katie holmes, Anne Hathaway,Scarlett Johansen, Rachel McAdams, etc...but they are way too old for the part! Ana is 21!!!

  • Shelly

    Nina Dobrev or Leighton Meester as Ana
    Ian Somerhalder or Chris hemsworth as Christian

  • sabrina

    I think Alexis Biedel would be perfect!!! Her dark hair and her blue eyes have Ana written all over her!!! And she is so innocent but beautiful looking..

  • Brown Libra

    And if William Levy isn't Christian Grey then not interested...Ian smiles like the joker and the Alexander and Alex suggestions are just laughable...Christian has got to be DROP DEAD Matt Bomer but on a selfish tip, he's gay and even if he can play the role it would mess with my fantasies if he was cast (cuz I know he would be 100% acting...I want an actor who would be at least INTO it if you know what I mean)...Henry Ian's smarmy smile turns my stomach...

  • Sacred

    I have put a lot of thought into the perfect cast for this book...right down to the last character. I think people are forgetting that whomever plays these roles has to be able to handle the part, on all emotional levels...looks and favorite popular actors are not enough. I also think less popular actors/actresses will do the movie justice.
    To E.L. James if you read this and would love some input on the perfect cast let me know I will send you my list....I swear to you it is absolutely FABULOUS! 🙂 To answer the above question...I think Anastasia could be played by... Sarah Butler... she could definitely play this part hands down and as her leading man Christian.... as much as I like Ian Somerhalder and think he could definitely handle the role. I would have to say Matt Bomer is my first choice...he has that certain something that just says "YES"!!! 😉

    • Tammy

      You say the actors chosen have to be able to play the role on all emotional levels. Can Matt Bomer, being a gay man (whom I love by the way) be believable in the role of Christian Grey? I just don't think viewers would be able to get past that.

  • Caitlin

    Alexandra Daddario as Ana Steel
    Alexander Skarsgar as Christian Grey

  • Emma Watson or Nina Dobrev. Needs to be someone who looks or is young enough to be just out of college. Making Ana English would work I think. Nina is so pretty that she would be a lovely match to my Imaginary christian Grey. By the way, he should be played by Henry Cavill or Ian Somerhalder.

  • KMZ

    Alexis Blendel & Ian Somerhalder! Alexis seems to be the popular choice for Ana!

  • Lisa

    EMMA STONE is who i picture playing the roll of Ana!!

  • Jennifer

    Emmy Rossum is perfect.

  • Melanie

    I always envisioned Anne Hathaway. But I do think Alexis is a damn fine choice.
    As long as Matt Bomer is cast as CG I'm a happy gal ;0)

  • Sarah

    Alexis Bledel

  • fangirl

    Definitely Emily Browning (perfection!), Emma Watson (would be interesting since she is such a talented actress) or Lucy Hale. Everyone of them are somewhere near the right age and look like Ana.

  • Virgo Not a Virgin

    IMO two unknown actors should play the parts. Look what it did for Robert Patrick in T2 Judgement Day... as well as the movie itself.

    But whatever you do, do NOT cast Kristen Stewart as Ana... she's a total idiot.

    • jen

      i totaly agree with you virgo we have seen enough of kristen stewart!!!!

  • jo

    Anne Hathaway

  • laura

    ALEXIS BLEDEL for sure as ana and Matt Bomer as Christian 😀 x

  • Cora

    Lucy hale or alexis bledel should be Anastasia Steele and as for Christian Grey it should be Ryan Goseling or Chris Pine. The choices here for women are horrible

  • Michelle

    Ashley Greene or Alexis Bledel.......Ian Somerhalder is Christian Grey no one else........and I have read about a possible show on HBO that would probably work out better than a movie they could have so much more than trying to put everything into a movie..a series....just imagine

  • I

    ALEXIS BLEDEL most definitely as Anastasia.

  • Tammy

    Alexis Bledel

  • Amanda

    Alexis and Ian definitely!!

  • lucy

    Alexis bledel 🙂 with ian somerhalder yay!

  • jen

    If they were smart they would make it a series on HBO or Showtime, they could show alot more stuff and make it into alot of seasons

  • Debbie C

    I think Rooney Mara would be an excellent Ana Steele. If you check out earlier photos of her before Lisbeth Salander, she had long brown hair and a total innocence in her face.

    Ian Somerhalder doesn't do it for me.... I think they should find an unknown - someone who looks a little like Christian Bale. If Christian Bale wasn't older, I think he would have been it. He's gorgeous, has that brooding demeanor like Christian Grey and yet can be tender.

  • Kimmy

    Ashley Greene 🙂

  • Nicole

    I think either Lucy Hale or Rooney Mara would be great for ana

  • Bev

    Emmy Rossum for Anastasia Steele and Matt Bomer for Christian Grey.....its a no brainer!

    • Ursula

      I do like Bev's choses also! They would be good in those roles! I love Emmy Rossum and Matt Bomer. My only problem is he just may be to short? Just saying!

      • Andrea

        Perfect couple.....Matt Bomer & Emmy Rossum!!!
        I also think Michelle Pfeiffer would make a great Elena.

  • Karen

    It needs to be someone that looks innocent but can be sexy.. how about Emma Roberst. She is growing up and would be perfect and with Henry Cavill as Christian!!!! OMG! Get my handcuffes!!!

  • Carla

    l think either Lucy Hale or Nina Dobrev would be really good for the role!

  • Emily Browning from Suckerpunch...perfectly described as Anastasia Steele

  • Connie

    Alexis Bledel

  • I agree that Alexis Bledel would be perfect for the role of Ana and Ian Somerhalder for Christian but I doubt that will happen. I also think that Kim Cattrall would be a good choice for Mrs Robinson.

  • Jennifer

    Ann Hatheway all the way. Anastasia is a good looking girl but by no means is she a vixen. he sees her as a hot smoking girl, but she describes herself as average. ann hatheway could pull this off to a tee. shes sweet enough and sexy enough to give us the anastasia we read about!

  • Corisha Furber

    Nina Dobrev as ana and Ian as Christian, the chemistry they show in vd could so easily be these characters 🙂

  • Ursula

    EMMA STONE!!!!! For Sure!!!!!!

  • viv

    Alexis Bledel would be good as Anastasia..

  • One last thing to add which I forgot to mention in my last comment please, please, please do NOT cast Kristen Stewart as Ana, she would not do the role justice and i think it would be a big mistake.

  • Vanessa

    Analeigh Tipton for Anastasia Steele!!!

  • Yvonne

    1. Alexander Skasgard as Christian (has the height, the eyes, the look = total package)
    2. Ashley Green (innocent looking, also sexy, beautiful, etc.)
    3. Angelina Jolie (best for the part (gorgeous, sexy, need I say more?)

    But please, please do not pick Kristen Stewart as Anastasia. Nothing against her personally. But her acting is awful.

  • Ann1978

    Teresa Palmer or Hayden Panettiere

  • Patty

    What about Ian Somerhalders girlfiend, Nina Dobrev?

  • nicki

    ALEXIS BLEDEL most def.

  • Ursula

    ARMIE HAMMER as Christian Grey!!!!! Perfect match! He's tall, dark side and very handsome!!! Emma Stone as Ana! She is smart, witty, pretty-but not too pretty! She would be perfect for the role!!!!

  • Jokieler

    Emma Watson
    okay - she's known as Hermione Granger - but
    she has the right charisma for this role

  • JustJen

    I think Ann Hathaway can play Anastasia . She's got the girl next door look to her.

  • Amanda

    Lucy Hale or Ahsley Greene for Ana.
    And Matt Bomer for Mr. Grey!

  • Stace

    Emma Watson! Have been discussing this with friends and she is about the only one we could come up with that really suited the role, her with Henry Cavill or Ian Sommerhalder!

  • Lizzy

    Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder!!!!!

  • Minxy

    Alexis bledel all the waaaaaaaaaay! Come on!!!

  • Sh

    Emmy Rossum for Ana!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Julissa & Crystal

    Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars, she's petite, very pretty and simple & innocent looking. She also has the dark hair and light eyes.

  • Tina


  • Stace

    Sorry typing to fast! Its Emma Roberts we were talking about, not Emma Watson. (She is FAR too young!)

  • Courtney

    Alexis Bledel!!!!

  • Gina

    Most of you are thinking the same as me. I think Alexis Bledel is perfect. She's smart and sassy, looks innocent, and fits the physical description perfectly. The author is always taking about her eyes, and Alexis' eyes are a beautiful blue! For Christian... I've been on the Ian Somerhalder train for a while, but you check out recent pictures of Henry Cavill. Wow! He would also make a great Christian. We have to remember that all these gorgeous dark-haired men we're suggesting will need to have their hair colored to be accurate with the book, so we'll have to keep that in mind.

  • Nicole

    Shelley Hennig would be perfect!!!!! she has the look and demenor to play ana!
    Along side Ian Somerholder!!!!

  • Steph

    Emmy Rossum!!!!!

  • cheryl

    Emmy Rossum is my choice

  • Ashleigh Morris

    Emmy Rossum would be a great Anastsia

  • TheMissy

    Emma Stone and Henry Cavill!

  • rebecca

    Unknown actors/actresses should be found for this film. Lets get a bit on new talent on the screen! Talent spotted people who fit the characters and their personalities. Sick to death of the same old faces . This kind of story needs that raw and fresh face talent that nobody should know about until the film is released!

  • Abby

    My vote is for Allison Brie! She has the look and the sex appeal.

  • Staci

    Emma Stone

  • Kasey
    • Kasey

      I would love for Hugh Laurie(House) to play Dr. Flynn.

  • Ana

    Emma Stone !!!!!

  • Kasey
  • Barb

    Alexis Bledel

  • Amy

    Alexis Bledel, Emma Stone or Emmy Rossum!

    Alexis is what I imagined Ana as, eyes and innocent face.

    Emma has the beauty and the giggle I imagine.

    Emmy is beautiful and would be a natural for the part.

  • h-chan

    Jennifer Lawrence!

  • Kasey
  • Erin

    Anne Hathaway for sure

  • Sara

    Emmy Rossum for Ana and Matt Bomer for Christian! =)

  • Cindi


  • les

    Jane Levy

  • Gaby

    Henry Cavill is how I imagined Christian when I was reading the book. Ian S. is nothing like Christian- he's not tall, not that muscular, and I would rather have somebody unknown as C., than Ian.
    And for Anna I agree with most of the suggestions- that Alexis B. would be good for the role, but I can also see Ashley Benson as Anna.

  • tria

    jesse pavelka and alexis bledel

  • Jessika

    Emmy Rossum is exactly who I have always pictured!! & Alexander Skarsgard for Christian!

  • Sabrina

    I really like Lucy Hale. She has expressed interest in playing the part. Please noooo Kristen.

  • Ann

    Lucy Hale - most definitely!

  • kristen

    The only person worthy of Ana on that list is Lily Collins. I also like Leighton Meester or Troian Bellisario. I'll be happy with anyone but Kristen Stewart!!!

  • Whitney

    I think Allison Williams for Ana she's amazing in HBOs Girls and beautiful! Would be perfect! She should definitely be considered in the mix!

  • Dorothy

    The first time I saw this young lady on Breaking Pointe (channel five summer reality show) I thought of Ana. I hope you consider Beckanne Sisk.

  • Catarena

    Alexis Bledel, she's got the qualities described as Anastasia.

  • whitney

    Alexis Bledel!!!!

  • Rebecca

    Mila Kunis would make an AWESOME Anastasia!

  • Kris C

    christian- Ian somerholder
    Kate- Blake lively
    Elliot- Kellan Lutz
    Mia-lea Michelle
    Ethan-chase Crawford
    Ms Robinson-Michelle piefer
    Anna-Diana agron
    Jose- Taylor Lautner

  • Jurnnet

    Alexis Bledel:)

  • Katie

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect. She's so beautiful!!

  • RM

    Jensen Ackles or Ian Somerhalder as Christian. Not kristen stewart ease! The girl who plays lexi grey on greys anatomy or alexis bledel

  • Rae

    Alexis bledel as Ana
    Henry Cavil as Christian
    Blake lively as Kate
    Kellen lutz as Elliot
    Lucy hale as Mia

    • Anastasia

      ....this Henry Clavill: where have u been all my life??? As for Ana, good luck with the casting, she'll be torn to pieces...but the GilmoreGirl looks like da winner!

  • Linda m

    Definately Alexis Bledel! She should have been cast as Bella in twilight but was overlooked, they have to give heR this one!

  • dragana

    Ladies, google Felicity Jones 🙂
    she has the gorgeous blue eyes, dark hair, shes funny, witty and I can see her play the dumb-anastasia steele.

    Alexis is just too innocent and not funny (not to tell, dumb) enough!

    and of course the hottie Henry Cavill for C. Grey.

  • Krissy

    JESSICA LOWNDES as Anastasia Steele
    .... and ....
    CHRIS HEMSWORTH as Christian Grey!/ChrisHemsworthasChristianGrey

  • JWB

    Anna Kendrick.

  • Amber

    A brown headed Ashley Greene

  • Leah

    Isabel Lucas

  • yesi

    Alexis Bledel!!!!!

  • Amanda

    I think Ashley Greene would be perfect. She's beautiful and sexy. She looks innocent and sweet but definitely has an edge to her that would be perfect for the role of Ana

  • cj

    I vote for Ashely Greene. I think she would be perfect!

  • Pat

    I want ASHLEY GREENE as Anastasia Steele and IAN SOMERHALDER as Christian Grey

    • JAL

      These are my votes as well!

  • Cape

    Scarlett Johansson as anastacia & Ryan Gosling as Mr. Grey

  • Presh

    Alexis Bledel (Ana) & Alexander Skargard (Christian)

  • Kristen

    Nina Dobrev!

  • Amber

    Scott Elrod as Christian Grey!

  • Ellen

    Lucy Hale from Pretty Little Liars would make a perfect Ana! And I vote Joe Manganielle for Christian.. Just saying

  • Kat

    Emmy Rossum. She's young, shy, innocent and sexy at the same time. Emmy Rossum and Matt Bomer. BOOM

  • Rach

    Troian Bellisario would be perfect as Ana...

  • Stephanie

    I think Nina Dobrev should be Ana Steele.

  • Brandie

    I think Nina Dobrev would make an excellent choice!

  • Becky

    Emma Stone! Luci Hale would be good too!

  • Julia

    I pick Ian Somerhalder and Rooney Mara, shes not scared to take off her clothes! lol

  • tk

    Lucy Hale!

  • jen

    Ian Somerhalder and Mila Kunis. Shailene Woodley runs a close second.

  • emily

    i think mila kunis would be a awesome fit for that role

  • How about possibly-
    - Alexis Bledel as Ana
    - Ian Somerhalder as Christian (how is he NOT the best option for this part?)
    - Jeniffer Aniston as Mrs. Robinson
    - Susan Sarandon as either Ana's mom or Christian's mom
    ... CAN'T WAIT for this movie though I really do hope they somehow capture each book's (or the whole trilogy's?) essence in just a couple hours. ... Oh my! ; )

  • Lisa

    Christa B Allen for Anastasia & Chris Hemsworth for Christian!!
    (just need wardrobe to get their coloring right - eyes & hair etc)
    What Ian Sommerhandsr has the look & coloring he is way too small/short to play Christian!!

  • Shauna

    Emma Roberts hands down (Julia Roberts niece). Please God not Kristen Stewart!

  • Katie Whitmer


  • Shauna

    Jason Shane-Scott as Christian

  • jennifer

    Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder

  • Krista

    Alexis Bledel as Anastasia
    Ryan Gosling as Christian
    Blake Lively as Kate

  • Jessica

    Alexis Bledel & Matt Bomer are the perfect Christian & Ana!

  • Tiffany Selvey

    Emma Stone, or Emily Blunt!

  • Betty

    Zoe De Chanel for Ana. Fresh-faced, decidedly cute brunette.

  • Kelly

    For all of you that are saying Alexis Bledel, or any other actress with small eyes, I hope you are kidding!! Have you even read the books??? You can change hair colour or eye colour on an actress but you can't change eye size!

    And PLEASE NOT Kristin Stewart, her acting is awful at best (even though I am a twilight fan), she would RUIN this movie with her plain boring acting!!

    I like Amanda Seyfried, her eyes have that too big for her face look as it states in the book!

    Of course Ian Somerhalder for Mr. Grey!! He is perfect, sexy and intimidating! To die for!

  • Lucy Hale is a great pick! Matt Bommer as Christian is a must.

  • Nicole

    Emma Stone as Ana
    Alexander Skarsgard as Christian

  • Rosa

    JULY 10, 2012 AT 3:36 PM
    Alexis Bledel – Ana
    Ian Somerhalder – Christian
    Kim Cattrall– Ms. Robinson

  • Anne Hathaway for Ana.

    No Twilight people please! Let this movie have its own glory. I agree with Lani above; find a new face for us to lust after.

  • What about Crystal Reed(Teen Wolf) and Alexander Skarsgard(so sexyXD) lol.

  • Amy

    Emily Browning would be perfect. And she would be fine with nudity since you see her naked in Sleeping Beauty.

  • elise lucas

    Emilia Clarke is my vision of Ana, alongside Ian Somerhalder as Christian!

  • Ali

    Whoever plays Ana needs to fit her physical description long brown hair blue eyes and pale skin. I don't agree Mila Kunis suits the role physically, Alexis bledel does but I can't envision her as sexy or into that stuff the innocent roles she's played have been drilled into her can't see her playing the role. I think they should get an unknown for Ana and Ian Somerhalder as Christian

  • Kerri

    Emmy Rossum, a perfect Ana.

  • Sherry

    I totally think Blake Lively would be a perfect girl for Anastasia and Eric Dane for Christian! I depicted them as I read through all three of the books! I think their personalities and demeanor would go perfectly with the roles of these characters of the books.

  • Stacey

    Anne Hathaway as Ana.

  • Sue

    Amanda Seyfried! SHe has the innocent look that would pull it off!

  • Sandra

    I think Ana should be played by either, Megan Fox, Mila Kunis, Jessica Stroup or Julianne Hough with dark hair.

  • Kasey

    This is an awesome video someone made and it's like watching the Fifty Shades trailer for the movie.

  • Peggy

    She needs to be someone not well known, naive, but sexy, the women diffently needs to be in her mid 20s. she need to be hot that men will love and find deservable and women will want to hate but want to be like. This part will make her famous.

  • Jessica C

    Alexis Bledel!!!!

  • Maria Talavera

    i think that Ana should be played by Anne Hathaway

    • I think too many people are forgetting that Ana is only 21 and Christian is only 27....Some of these people are way to old for the part!

  • katherine

    Alexis Bledel

  • Haley

    Ana- Lucy Hale
    Christian- Chris Hemsworth

    who cares about the rest!

  • Hayley

    I think Chyler Leigh from Grey's Anatomy would play a great Ana. She's got that innocent but beautiful look about her (and is already used to playing a Grey! Lol)
    And I think Alex O'loughlin from Hawaii Five-0 would make a fab Christian!

    Oh my!

  • Leigh Anna

    Victoria Justice or Katie Holmes

  • Jennifer

    Emmy Rossum

  • rachel

    Definately Alexis Bledel and Jessie Pavelka as Christian

  • stacey campbell

    alexis bledel would be perfect. I agree that she as a very innocent reputation due to previous work but isn't that the way Ana was at the beginning of the story and christian brought her out of herself just as she did him in the end.

  • Tehh

    Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder!!!! <3!

  • Kendall

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect

  • Olga

    Alexis Bledel!!!!
    She is the only person I was thinking of when I saw "other"
    She is the only person I imagine when I read the book.
    She has the perfect look,
    Big blue eyes, she's a brunette
    she has that innocent look

  • Nicole

    Alexis Bledel, without a doubt should play Ana! It needs to be someone mature enough to act out the erotic scenes in the book but yet has a youthful just out of college look with an understated beauty. I would like Natalie Portman if she was younger but.....she is not!

  • Chris

    Ashley Greene!!

  • Lucy Hale as Ana and Chris Evans as Christian. PERFECT!

  • shanice

    Mila Kunlis.

  • Emmy Rossum as Anastasia & Chase Crawford as Christian (Lily collins would make a great Leila!)

  • Brittany

    Emily Browning or Lucy Hale for Ana and Ian Somerhalder as Christian!!

  • Kimberly V

    SOPHIA BUSH as Ana!!!!!!

  • Breanna

    Lyndsy Fonseca... she would be good.

  • Carol

    Emma Stone!

  • Kathie decker

    Jane Levy

  • Dora

    The perfect choice is Elizabeth Olsen! Not too known, beautiful and a great actress.

  • Holly

    Alexis Bledel!!! I can't believe she's not on the list, she's perfect also to go with Matt Bomer 😉

  • caroline

    Shelley Hennig is who i picture as Ana, she played Diana in Secret Circle. And then Claire Holt from the Vampire Diaries is who i saw as Kate.

  • Kim

    I think Emily Browning would be great!

  • June

    EMILIA CLARKE!!! OR Emmy Rossum for sure. With Henry Cavill as Christian would be a dream.

  • Alexi Bledel all the way

  • Rose

    Alexis Bledel or Lucy Hale. Ana is not obviously beautiful because she feels awkward, and she has big doe-like eyes, which she mentions as she looks in the mirror on the VERY FIRST PAGE.
    And I swear if they screw this up by casting a single person from the Twilight Gaga I think I will just give up sex forever.

    Ok maybe not...

  • Brisa

    Venessa Hudgens whould be perfect!!

  • Judy

    Alexia Bledel for Anastasia and Matt Bomer for Christian!

  • Pauline

    Emilia Clarke!!!!!!!

  • charlotte

    emmy rossum!!!!!

  • Lacey

    I think Ashley Greene would be a wonderful choice.

  • Chantel

    Emilia Clarke as Anastasia Steele & Matt Boomer as Christian Grey. Period.

  • My picks for Ana & Christian are Ginnifer Goodwin (Something Borrowed) and Armie Hammer (Social Network). Check out my Fifty, "Fifty Shades of Nutella" - bring your own spoon!

  • melissa

    definitely Emmy Rossum or Anne Hathaway ... They can always where contacts but definitely have the acting ability.

  • Jess

    I think Jessica Lowndes would be a good choose for Ana.

  • cb

    Mila Kunis!!!

  • brenna

    I think Lily Collins looks like someone I picture Ana looking very close to. Shes young and very pretty. And for Christian I think Matt Bomer is a good choice. He is very goodlooking has the long hair look and can easily pull off a business man like Christian.

  • Christine

    Alexis Blidel and Colin Egglesfield (Something Borrowed)!

  • Chelse

    Alexis Bledel, she would be PERFECT! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE choose her!

  • Traci

    Alexis bledel all the way. For Ana

  • Jenn

    I think Katie Holmes would make a fabulous Anastasia Steele.

  • Optimistic12

    Christian - Ian Somerhalder
    Ana - Lucy Hale
    Ms Robinson - Ellen Barkin

  • *** this is such a hard and huge decision ***
    .. All I request as a HUGE fan of “Fifty” is that the Studios, Producers and the Casting department think very hard on their choice actors and how to make the film.
    .. The actors MUST look 90% close to the characters that they will play, none of this "30 year old playing a 20 year old" kind of thing (and don’t CGI their eyes, hair or bodies) because the actors you hired lack the qualities that are listed in the books.
    .. This Movie (must be rated R or even NC17), the studios don’t need to worry about NOT drawing the people (because we are already there, and we are waiting for someone to take on this challenge), and technically – no one under 18 should be reading these books anyway, so NC17 sounds BEST.
    >>>> Just don’t wimp out on us <<<<
    .. Yes, we don’t want to see hard-core sex (there has to be some imagination on our part), but we also don’t want it to end up as a PG-13 movie either, because the studio lacked the knowledge on how to make this movie correctly.
    .. If the actors that are chosen have been around “GREAT” or if they are newbies “JUST AS GOOD”
    .. All I ask, is that the studios, producers and casting department: "Be True To the Books and the Characters".
    .. Thanks ~ patiently waiting for Casting List

    • Like

      I think there needs to be some newbies. Well , not brand new but maybe just a few very talented and young TV show personatities

  • Autumn

    Emmy Rossum! Sorry, but Alexis Bledel is too old and not hot enough.

  • Gail

    I think it should be someone new and fresh.A unknown actress. Someone that can pull off being naive as well having a brain.

  • michelle

    Emma Stone!!! I think she would be the perfect!!!

  • Melany Verbiar

    Amy Acker would be the perfect Ana with Ian as Christian!!!! I cannot wait,

  • Smileee

    Rachel McAdams

  • Ashley M.

    Emmy Rossum!!!!!!

  • flakes

    Felicity Jones or Ashley Greene maybe? 🙂

  • Kelli

    Lucy Hale

  • Sandi Hayes

    Anne Hathaway has the look. Wide eyes, pale complection, and dark hair. I wonder if she can pull off all the sexy-ness.

  • Annette

    CAM GIGANDET - CHRISTIAN (Although I picture Josh Lucas, and just can't shake that image. Ian Somerhalder definetely has the personality down pat in Vampire Diaries, but I think that I would keep associating him as a vampire if he were in a similar 'womanising predator' like role.
    ....Charlize Theron would be a good Mrs Robinson, I hadn't thought of her. I have Carolyn Henessey in my head, even though she has short brown hair and is old, I just can't shake that either.

    I love reading everyones suggestions and who they picture!

  • Ashlee

    Lucy Hale for Ana
    Matt Bomer for Christian
    Amanda Seyfreid for Kate

  • Cathy

    Emile Clarke!!! She is awesome in Game of Thrones!! Has that innocent look and is beautiful and is a natural brunette.

  • Kimberly Guido

    did anyone thing of Mandy Moore ? didn't read though all of these...only on the first book...didn't want to ruin anything for me...but back to Mandy Moore -- dark hair, blue eyes - sophisticated yet innocent ....did anyone see 'a walk to remeber?" I think she would be perfect...and as for Christian -- just last week -- I think it was thursday July 5 -- whoever the guy was that hosted with Kelly on Live with Kelly - well he'd be perfect -- dreamy grey eyes and quite a smile --

  • Linda B.

    Emilia Clarke should be on the list of candidates. Ana needs to be a 21 year old that does not look like a "teenager" as Alexis Bledel. Emilia looks like a soon to be college grad embarking on the beginning of her career. She would be perfectly paired with Ian Somerhalder as Christian. NOT Ryan Gosling! p)

  • Alyssa

    Alexandra Daddario.

  • Susan

    Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) she's the best choice for Anastasia.

  • Roxanne

    Anne Hathaway!

  • samantha

    Amanda Righetti from The Mentalist.

  • Nicole

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect!

  • Smileee

    Rachel McAdams...She has the sweet and innocent look about her but yest very beautiful! Plus she can act.

    There is no way that Kristin Stewart is anything like Anna. She is too awkward and i don care of her acting skills.

  • Michele

    Ashley Greene & James Scott! Absolutely NOT Kristen Stewart.

  • Elizabeth

    I like Jessica. Stroup for the Anastasia role.

  • Sammy Burke


  • Sarah

    Alexis Bledel, hands down perfect choice

  • ashleigh

    I believe Ashley Greene or Anna Kendrick would be perfect as anna as well would be the perfect combination with Ian Somerhalder as CHristian, These two beautiful girls just have the right look as someone who would have Anastasias attitude looks they could playboth light and dark roles and theyre naturally beautiful girls.

  • ashleigh

    I think ryan gosling iss a good pick for christian too, i think everyone has forgotten he has golden hair-

    • ashleigh

      lucy hale i think would be a good choice also- she has the right frame, structure of who i see being anna

  • Andrea

    Demi Lovato

  • paige

    as for mrs robinson i think Michelle Pfeiffer might be great in elenas role-

  • Lisa

    Please DO NOT cast Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson as Ana and Christian!! They have Twilight..get some unknowns in there to play these two amazing characters!

  • kinzi


  • Mildred

    For me i honestly think Emmy Rossum i think she is an understate beauty a fresh face! Kristen Stewart has this lazy face expression that actually makes a movie boring

  • Shayr Guthrie

    Henry Cavill is the PERFECT choice for Christian. I can't see any one else playing him. The eyes. The hair. The demeanor. He's perfect!!!!

    Alexis Bledel should play Ana hands down. She needs to be sweet, innocent, smart and sexy-cute with big blue eyes.

    Please cast someone with greyish eyes for Christian and big blue eyes for Ana. It's such a HUGE part of the character description.

  • CC

    I have a few suggestions - but honeslty its so hard to pick. I think they should still be quite young - no Brad Pitts or Ryan Reynolds.

    My picks for Christain are- Channing Tatum, Zac Efron, Liam Hemsworth, Ian Somerhalde or Alex Pettyfer....yum!

    My picks for Ana are- Elizabeth Gillies, Emma Stone, Emma Watson, Mila Kunis, Odette Annable or Kat Dennings. I like someone like Rosario Dawson (looks wise) also - but she's a little too mature now

  • Erika

    Anna Kendrick or Anne Hathaway, if she isn't considered too old for the character. They both have the right look, I think and it would be really interesting to see them pull of the kinky fuckery. XD

  • Trudy

    leighton meester and ian somerhalder

  • Jessica

    Alexis Bledel as Ana, Paul Walker as Christian, Blake Lively as Kate, Matt Bar as Elliot, Heather Locklear as Mrs Robinson. That would be my dream cast

  • Brandi

    Emma Watson and Ryan Gosling

  • Tamara

    I think that both Ana and Christian should be played by people who are unknown. If they give the roles to someone that is already famous, then it just wouldn't feel right. Because once they become these characters, they shall be defined as them for the rest of their careers. Same as Kristen Stewart will always be Bella Swan and Ian Somerhalder will always be Damon Salvatore. I just think that they should go out and find a pair of people that fit the roles perfectly.

  • Bev V

    Laura Breckenridge as Ana & Brenden Fehr as Christian Grey - think they make a great couple like the film "A Christmas Kiss" 🙂 x

  • Erin

    Emmy Rossum and Ian Sumerhalder would definitely be the best choice!

  • stephanie

    Lucy Hale

  • sierra

    Emmy Rossum

  • TR

    Anne Hathaway!


  • Jordan

    Alexis Bledel (Ana) and Ian Somerhalder (Christian)

  • Bella Heathcote is perfect for Ana - innocent, gorgeous blue eyes and dark hair, and Ian Somerhalder perfect for Christian, he even has the grey eyes. He's divine!

  • Kylie

    Natalie Portman & Chris Hemsworth would be my pick

  • Gigi

    Alexis Bledel for sure as Ana. Too bad Gabriel Aubry is 35 but I think he would be a great choice to cast as Christian Grey he definitely is a hottie and has that smoldering look. Otherwise I am all for Ian Somerholder, yummy!

  • Ashley

    Lucy Hale or Alexis Bledel. Although now that I saw someone else mentioned Katie Holmes but I wonder if maybe she is too old. Definitely Ian Somerhalder for Mr.Grey!

  • Afrin

    Rachael Mcadams or kristen stewart 🙂

  • Anne

    I love the idea of Alexis Bledel!!

  • They need to cast Kaya Scodelario, she's young, gorgeous and is ready to be Annastasia.
    If Kirsten Stewart, Michelle Trachtenberg or Anne Hathaway are in this movie,I will not be watching it!

  • Angela

    My votes for Anastasia are Alexis Bledel or Ashley Greene!

    Ian Somerhalder for Christian!!!

  • Sara

    Julie Gonzalo she's the only one I see playing the part

  • Yesenia

    DEFINITE NO!! To Alexis Bledel as Ana. Haven't any of you seen her acting? She us not Ana worthy. I really hope they get anyone that's really known. I do like Alexander Skarsgard as Christian though, he's my exception.

  • Nicole

    Alexia Bledel!!!!! She is perfect for this role!!!

  • Carrie

    Emmy Rossum

  • Susan

    rachael mcadams 😀

  • Lorna B

    ALEXIS BLEDEL - the perfect Anastasia Steele!!!!

  • Jay

    Asher Keedy Australian actress

  • KVM

    Lyndsey Fonseca from NIkita

  • Hayley

    I think Mila Kunis would be great!!

  • Does any think Alexis might be a little old and too tall for this part. Especially if Ian Somerhalder is Fifty!

  • Schuyler

    Emilia Clarke!!!! Please!!!!

  • Shelley

    Claire Foy (Season of the Witch) for Ana, and Matthew Bomer as Christian! Hands down!

  • Not Kristen Stewart noooooooooooooooooo

    Alexis Bledel she looks so innocent,but does she have blue eyes???

  • susie


  • Kenzie

    Alexis Bledel & Matt Bomer please!!

  • Donna

    Absolutely Ann Hathaway

  • My vote is for Emilia Clarke.

  • Kelly

    Courtney Ford

  • Jaye

    has to be Emilia Clarke she has the innocence of Ana but has the gritty side to her as well, and Henry Cavill for Grey!!

  • Terenae

    Emmy Rossum she has an innocent beauty about her.

  • JAL

    My vote is for Ashley Greene. I think she would make a perfect Ana! I do not want to see Lucy or Nina! They both need to stay within their tv shows! Other than Kristin Stewart (no I do not want her playing the role either) Ashley Greene was the only other person I pictured playing the role as Ana!

  • kim

    Blake Lively

    • kim

      Blake Lively and Ryan Gosling

  • Lisa

    Alexis would be Great but so would Ashley Green.

  • Irene

    Anna Kendrick
    Ashley Greene
    Lucy Hale
    Alexis Bledel

    • Victoria

      Syfried could be cast as Kate. Also,
      Ashley Greene or Lucy Hale would be good Ana's. However, no matter who they choose must have on screen charisma with Christian pick. There are at least a dozen of good Anan potentials. Throw top 5 for each in a room together and let the "acting" begin!

  • Whitney

    Emilia Clarke is brilliant! Game of Thrones is such a hit and she rocks her character!! Could definitely see her as Ana!!

    • Julia Light

      I agree 🙂

  • Matt

    Has anyone thought of Justin Timberlake for Christian......

  • lexi

    Def not kirsten Stewart...I dnt think she can pull it off, my vote is rooney mara I hope they pick good actors and don't ruin the movie with horrible acting.

  • Angie

    Emily Clarke definately my choice!!!!!!

  • Kristin F

    Alexis Bledel-completely!

  • Please God, NOT Kristen Stewart she is the worst actress and RUINED the Twilight movies

    • NOT KSTEW!!!!

  • erin blum

    Mila Kunis!

  • Erin

    Alexis Blede...l and as with many NOOOOO Kristen Stewart Please that would ruin it completely!!!!!

  • mfallo

    I think when EL James wrote these books she had Kristen Stewart and Rob Pattinson in mind. For the doubters who can't think outside of the Twilight box, I have a few things to say... Hollywood would be hard pressed to find two other actors that could honor this kind of chemistry! Kristen takes a lot of crap for her persona, but under that shyness that is so misinterpreted she is a sensual vixen... a wildcat waiting to be tapped(Just like Ana Steele) As for Rob...come on! His eyes! His hair! His self-deprecation and his ability to convey pain,sexy and anger with the simple twist of his brow.. he can play the HELL out of some Christian Grey!!!

  • KC

    Alexis Bledel and Ian ...

  • Alexandra Daddario for Ana!!!!!!!

  • Zoe

    Lucy Hale!

  • Steph

    Elizabeth Olsen!

  • I like Lucy Hale or Alexis Bledel for Ana
    I like Alex Pettyfer and Justin Hartley
    look him up :p

  • Brittany


  • Jennifer

    Alexis Biedel or Lucy Hale would be perfect for Ana.

  • Alexis bedel is not pretty enough!!! plus she looks boring as fuck
    Lilly Collin or Lucy Hale is perfect with Ian Somerhalder!!!

  • Alexis bedel is not pretty enough!!! plus she looks boring as fuck

  • Victoria

    Alexis Bledel ...

  • Kim

    My vote is for Emilia Clarke. Henry Cavill for Christian.

  • Layla

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect!!! God anyone but Kirsten Stewart she doesnt have enough substance. I love Amanda Seyfried too 🙂

  • Kathy

    Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Ana Steele

  • Rasha

    Alexis Bledel is EXACTLY who I thought of nearly the entire time I read the books...she fits the profile and I believe she is beautiful. Kristen Stewart, in my opinion, has had her stage identity as Bella Swan and I think this role should be given to someone new...and I really do think Alexis Bledel is perfect for it.

  • Erica

    I'm all for Anne Hathaway as Ana Steele. She pulls off a good Plain Jain to Gorgeous Goddess in Princess Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada.

  • Serena

    Channing Tatum or Ryan Gosling as Christian
    Alexis Bledel as Ana.

    Pleassse don't use Kristen Stewart!

  • Tiffany

    I vote Lucy Hale as Anastasia Steele! 🙂

  • Jillie


  • Has anyone seen the actress Bella Heathcote from dark shadows. I think she fit the look for Bella. I also think Lucy Hale for Ana

    IAN SOMERHALDER for christian

    and Charlize Theron as Mrs Robinson

  • Insideofus

    Alexz Johnson! This video of her as a brunette.. I've pictured her as Ana the entire time..

  • Connie

    nina dobrev

  • I think either Ashley Greene or Mila Kunis for Ana.

  • Rachel

    nina dobrev!

  • Kim

    Ana = Mila Kunis (perfect eyes)

  • Nic

    Emmy Rossum

  • Prd2BDinks

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect as Anastasia

  • Abrianna

    I think Alexis bledel should play Anastasia Steele and Ian Somerhalder should play Christian Trevelyan Grey...

  • Jessica

    I want Alexis Bledel(: I didn't realize how many people did! I thought I'd be one of the only!!!

  • Guillermina

    Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder... or Lucy Hale and Ian S.

  • Xochitl Sandoval

    I agree with Emily Clarke!

  • Carey

    Alexis Bledel as Anna and Blake Lively as her roomate Katherine! Ian all the way for Mr Gray!!

  • Megan

    Mila Kunis or Anne Hathaway

  • Megan

    Emmy Rossum, Mila Kunis or Anne Hathaway would all make a great Anna Steele.

  • If it wasn't for his age going against him, I think Cillian Murphy would make an intense Christian. If she had time in her schedule, Katy Perry should try a debut in acting as Ana. As for the predatory cougar, non other than Michelle Pfiefer (or Madonna, if she could act)! Oh hey, how about Zac Effron for Christian (maybe too young)!

  • Emy

    Mila Kunis !!!! Mila Kunis & Ian Somerhalder !!! <3<3<3

  • J

    I want Ashley Benson as Ana! And Ian Somerhalder as Christian!

  • Tina

    Not Kristen Stewart, she sucks! You will not get anyone to see it if you cast her. HORRIBLE actress. Ana is supposed to be beautiful, and has a personality, neither of which Stewart has. You aim to please right? Please listen to the reviews you are getting from the people who are going to see this movie. We beg of you!!!! I like Emmy Rossum.

  • Mari

    Anybody BUT Kristen Stewart! YUCK! This has to be casted just right - too many women have created these characters in their head and if they cast shitty actresses such as Kristen, it just won't work!

  • Carolyn

    Lucy Hale or Emmy Rossum

    • Misst

      I agree Lucy Hale

  • julie edwards

    Felicity Jones or Piper Perabo for Ana. Alexander
    Skaarsgard for Christian for sure!!

  • Shay

    Alexis Biedel

  • Jill

    Emma Stone with Ryan Gosling as Christian Grey

  • Patty

    Allison Williams! She is PERFECT!

  • Vanessa

    Chris Hemsworth and Ann Hathoway

  • Jans

    Felicity Jones...too bad Ryan Phillipe is older than Christian because I think he would make a great Christian!

  • Emily

    Alexis Bledel!

  • Alexis Bledel 🙂

  • Jennifer

    Jana Kramer

  • Holly

    Emily Browning as she missed out on Twilight due to Catherine Hardwicke going against the author's wishes.

  • Miranda

    Mila Kunis

  • Lynette


  • Lori

    Alexandra Daddario!

  • Erika

    Everytime I read the book Emma Rossum and Chris Pine come to mind. Emma with her innocent look on top of her beauty and her wit along side with the demeanor, sexiness, and sophistication that Chris Pine holds......the couple could be deadly!

  • Molly

    Alexis Bledel for sure - I love her - she would be soo great at it! It's her eyes, I tell you. 🙂

    • Misst

      too old

  • Belinda

    Felicity Jones

  • Dusty

    Team "Alex"= Alexis Bledel and Alex Pettyfer! Online pics of her with bright blue eyes and him in suit/tie and messy hair is what I envision to a "T"!! .....believable as age and couple..If actors are chosen true to book, shouldn't matter if known actors or not..

  • Adriane

    Anna Kendrick & Ian Somerhalder!!! 😉

  • Lysa


  • Chelsey

    Alexis Bledel should be Ana Steele, if they cast Kristen Stewart then that will make the movie awful!! And Amanda Seyfriend is not even a brunette!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Kimberly

    Emma Stone!

  • Amanda

    My top 5 list of possibles for Ana would be...
    1. Jennifer Lawrence
    2.Amanda Sigfreid
    3. Lily Collins
    4. Ellen Page
    5.Emma Stone

    Either way..whomever they choose has to look hot when she bites her bottom lip 🙂

  • Katie

    ALEXIS BLEDEL she is a much better choice but please please please dont chose kristen stewart she would ruin it

  • debora

    Anastasia needs to be RACHEL BILSON or OLIVIA WILDE.
    Christian needs to be IAN SOMERHALDER or RYAN GOSLING
    Mrs. Robinson JENNIFER ANISTON


  • Jennifer

    Emmy Rossum as Ana
    Ryan Gosling as Christian
    Blake Lively as Katherine
    Liam Hemsworth as Elliot
    Nicole Kidman as Mrs Robinson

  • RiseRebelResist

    Alexandra Daddario. Read the book again and use your imagination ladies.

  • Jenni

    I also am voting for Alexis Bledel. She's old enough to play the part even though she looks younger, and she's so innocent looking and likable in movies. I also like the suggestions for Emma her! For Christian, I've never watched Matt Bomer act, but pics of him for the most part fit my image of Christian. I also think that Cam Gigandet would make a great Christian Grey! I like Kristen Stewart but agree with a lot of others that this should be someone lesser known to play the part of Ana! I wouldn't want to watch it as badly if it was Kristen Stewart, as for such an intense story, I think it should be someone not everyone sees all the time in movies!

  • kathy

    Emma Stone for Ana
    If he were younger then Blair Underwood but considering that Christain is younger how about Christin Bail

  • Kasey

    Spencer from Pretty Little Liars or Rachael Carpani

  • Kimberly

    We have to remember that this girl is supposed to be beautiful ~ and sexy!!!!
    I think Victoria Justice or Mila Kunis (maybe to old though?) would be perfect.... she's gotta have the legs too!!!!!

    As for Christian ~ Hmmmm???? I originally liked Alexander Skaarsgard....but I don't know! It needs to be someone who can do brooding / sexy / playful / arrogant all in one!

    PLEASE no K. Stewart!!!!!!!
    Really hope hollywood doesn't screw this up!!!!!!!

    • Kimberly

      Nina Dobrev would be great too!!!!

    • EdieC

      Henry cavill IS Christian Grey! His Dunhill Black ads on youtube SCREAM Fifty! He has the looks, the eyes, the body, that boyish smile & sexy smirk. On Tudors, he has played charming, classy, playful, domineeering, seductive, pained & had no problem with the nudity or sex scenes. He also looks like a greek god as described, is 6'1 & 29 yrs old & looks great in a suit. he is the only one with the resume to prove he is Christian & has played every trait & feeling Christian has & has the looks along with the bedroom experience to pull it off. As for Ana, Alexandra Daddario is perfect. She has the alabaster skin, BLUE eyes to big for her face, long brown hair & pouty lips as described. She has an innocent beauty requiring no make up yet at 26 she looks 22 & has the maturity for the steamy scenes. They would be great together!

  • Deb

    YESSSS!!!!!!!! Definitely Alexis Bledel & Ian Somerhalder! Her goody two shoes look fits perfectly with his bad boy look!

    PLSSSSS no more Amanda Seyfried, Kirsten Stewart or Lily Collins.. Seyfried kinda looks like a sl*t if you ask me.. Stewart is too awkward looking and Collins is just way too innocent..

  • Jill Shipley

    I think alexis bledel would do great or even ashley greene. But I beleive Matt Bomer is the essence of Christian Grey. Bradley cooper and ryan gossling don't fit the bill even though they are sexy. I think the casters need to be very careful who they pick for these rolls as it could make the movie a failure. The one thing that would definately make it fail, hands down would be to cast Kristen Stewart as "Anna". Her acting is not versitile enough to play such a character. Sorry just my opinion.

  • Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder - think they'll be perfect!

  • Misst

    Lucy Hale for Ms. Steele
    and Henry Cavill for Christian Gray

  • shayla

    Emilia Clarke as Ana and Matt Bomer or Scott Elrod as Christian Grey. Now that is HOT!!!! Alexis Biedel and Ian Somerhalder are not believable. They are too well known and are missing the edge to do the characters justice.

  • LSK

    ALEXIS BLEDEL ! she's perfect as Anastasia Steele (:

  • Elli

    What about Nina Dobrev?

  • Marianne

    Emma Stone!! She IS Anastacia Steele!!! Why isn't she on the list???

  • OK finally found the girl who out does slutty Kristen Stewart and ugly Amanda seyfried, I think that Jessica Stoup would be good ya she doesnt have big eyes but there blue and very pretty. She's young tiny. I also think Ashely Green would be the perfect Mia. She's got the little spunky look to her that Mia shows off. And for 50 gotta be either Alex Petyferr or Ian Somerholder, not any old dudes thats just gross. COMe now Hollywood dont let us women down hold up to the book and what it protrays: sex, love, red room, and sex!

  • Christina

    I always picture Kiera Knightly as Ana, James Franco as Christian and Emma Stone as Kate. Kim Catrall would make a great Ms. Robinson.

  • Jo-Ann

    I'm with everyone else. Alexis Bledel IS Ana. What the heck is Kristin Stewart doing up there???? Ian and Alexis. They can pull it off better than anyone else in Hollywood.

  • Elizabeth

    Lilly Collins wouldn't be too bad but I like Emmy Rossini neat.
    Christian should be Ian Sommerholder or Jake Pavelka!!

  • Amy

    Alexis Bledal

  • Deb

    I think it should be Leighton Meester!! She'd be wonderful as Anastasia. I don't know why no one has mentioned her yet.

  • Ashley

    I dont even know who I would cast but not any of these and not Alexis Bledel yuck. She probley wouldnt do it anyways & her voice annoys me

  • Nina

    I prefer as Christian Grey Henry Cavill. He's perfect for this. I like Ian Somerhalder but he's too short and Christian is very tall!... And for Ana I think that Amanda Seyfried is perfect because she has the big blue eyes that Ana has and the pale skin and I think that she could do the sexy scenes.

  • ann

    Someone PLEASE consider TAYLOR KINNEY (Lady Gaga's boyfriend or ex) from the Vampire Diaries. His hair, his naturally-flirtatious smirk, his body, and his EYES are perfect for Christian Grey.

  • Amy

    I was so for Alexis Bledel, but then it hit me.. Kat Dennings. She is beautiful, has the lips, and the chest, and the nonchalant character. Chris Hemsworth for Christian would rock!

  • Amanda Dodson

    Chris Hemsworth (Thor from The Avengers) should play Christian Grey. Kate Beckinsale (Celine from Underworld) should be Anastasia Steele. Their looks match that stated in the book and they are both impressive actors. Besides, who doesn't want to see Chris Hemsworth in a sex scene? 😉

  • Tricia

    Alexis Bledel

  • Jamie

    Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder!!!

  • Amy Dentremont

    Alexandria Daddario for Ana and Matt Bomer for Christian!!

  • ge

    Zooey Deschanel is Ana completely!

  • Krystal Rae

    Alexis Bledel! Perfect! That's an understatement! Other options, Nina Dobrev, Scarlett Johansson, Kristen Stewart, or Megan Fox. As for Christian they can't go wrong with either Ian Somerhalder or Alex Skarsgard. 

  • Alisha


  • Tanya

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect for it cause she has the right about of innocence!!!

  • Dee

    What about Zoey Deschanel? I know she usually plays a goofy girl but I think she would be perfect! She's so beautiful even without makeup.

  • Emma


  • alexis

    alexandra daddario fifty as Ana is perfect

  • Janettza

    I think they should cast Scarlett Johansson as Anastasia Steele !!!!! All the way!

  • Veronica

    I like Michelle Trachtenberg for Ana and Ian Somerhalder for Christian. Idk I think they would work well together too. And Trachtenberg has played both a bitch on Gossip Girl and innocent and awkward roles such as her role in Disney's Ice Princess. Just a thought.

  • I'd like to recommend Kristin Kreuk as Anastasia Steele.

  • Christina

    Emma Stone all the way.

  • Veronica

    Ashley Greene for Anastasia Steele and Henry Cavill for Christian Grey!

  • Lesley

    Mila Kunis!
    Emma stone!
    Rachel Bilson!
    Ashley Greene!

  • Libby Parker

    Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer = perfect

  • Amy

    i think sophia bush or zooey deschanel would be good for the part. Kristen Stewart is far to moody and would ruin it.

  • louise

    ashley greene

  • Tammy

    Either Emmy Rossum, Ashley Greene, or Anne Hathaway...need someone with the sweet and innocent vibe 😉

  • Jo

    Alexis Bledel and Matt Bomer

  • Toula

    Rachel Bilson from Hart of Dixie without a doubt

  • Ali Mac

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect as Miss Steele she is beautiful and has the innocence but independance too of Miss Steele and Hayden Christensen as Mr Grey he has that moodiness but is unbelievably handsome as portrayed in the book I could see them both looking fantasitc together - a perfect match!

  • spiritgirl07

    Alexis Bledel or Ema Stone

  • Brenna

    I would agree with most of you. Alexis Bledel would be great. I didn't see her in Gilmore GIrls, but I remember the role she played in Sin City. She did a really good job. As far as Christian goes, definitely Ian Somerhalder. When I see his picture, I can totally see him in those worn down jeans with the button undone and barefoot. OMG totally sexy.

  • Alicia

    I saw that Felicity Jones is rumoured to play Ana as well. I am not too familiar but I looked her up and she is what I imagine Ana to be like. Pretty, but not outwardly stating her beauty. Innocent, curious, pouty.

  • amy

    emma roberts, kristen stewart, or a nobody is prop the best option.

  • Heather

    ALEXIS BLEDEL!!! She is perfect! If I had to chose from the list above, I would go with Lily Collins.

  • I agree with having Alexis Bledel as Ana and DEFF having Channing Tatum for Christian!!

  • Lyssy anne

    Lucy Hale as Ana

  • Winona

    I think Ashley Green and Chris Hemsworth !! Perfect !! Also Sharon Stone as Mrs. Robinson.

  • Heather

    what about Nina Dobrev!!!

  • jacki

    NO SOMMERHOLDER! The guy can't act his way out of a wet paper bag. Give us Henry Cavill or go home!

  • toni

    alexis bledel

  • kd

  • DonnaS

    Alexis Bledel for def!! She would be an amazing Ana!! 🙂 She has that sweet innocent look to her and shes exactly what i pictured Ana to look like! 🙂

    p.s.. Matt Bomer for Grey!! 😀

  • kate

    Hell no, not Lily....please. I really want Ashley Greene to play Anastasia! She's the perfect Anastasia! I love Kristen Stewart, but she's not right for this role.

  • sandalwood


  • Dominique

    Alexis Bledel she would be perfect

  • Julia Light

    Here's a wild about a no name actress, or at least one that isn't in almost every cookie-cut movie.

  • Amy Creamer

    Alexis Bledel is an obvious choice. NOOOOO Kristen Stewart.

  • jess211

    Ok....So I am starting to get upset, does everyone keep forgetting how old Ana and Christian are? Who thinks Bradley Cooper can look 27? I love him and all but that is just not happening. I think Ian can definitely look 27. Matt Bomer also can pass for 27. Then for Ana, Alexis Bledel, Mila Kunis, Anna Kendrick, all perfect I think. She has to be beautiful but also somewhat understated, she has to be innocent but also able to grow into Mrs. Grey. I don't think Zooey Dechanel would work at all, she is gorgeous and funny but she is funny Zooey not Ana. I think Amanda Seyfried would be good to play Katherine. I don't know, that is how I read the book. No matter what, as long as E.L. James has a hand in the casting and she casts who she sees as Christian and Ana I will not be disappointed since that is what I should have seen. Can't wait!

    On a side note. Is anybody else concerned about how the movies will turn out? I have two concerns: 1) It will be too PG and lose a lot of what makes the books so amazing. 2) It will be too much about the sex and lose all the story.
    I hope they can find a balance and please as many readers as possible (not all of them, we all know that is impossible),

  • Gisela

    Lucy Hale as Ana!!

  • Sara

    Caterina Scorsone, would be perfect i think!

  • Jen

    Hmmm if we are going with Simon Baker lets make it a quinella and have Miranda Kerr. She has an angelic face.

    But for a more age suited couple lets try Dakota Fanning as the innocent girl and Alex O'Loughlin as Mr Grey?? Very doeable lol

  • Lynda Brown

    ALEXIS BLEDEL hands down!

  • Helen

    Emmy Rossum or Ashley Greene as Ana and Ian Somerhalder as Christian......HOT HOT HOT!!!!!!!!

  • lily

    How about Emma Watson?

  • Jaclyn

    Ana = Lyndsy Fonseca! She's done a lot of TV work but not a ton of movies so she's more a "fresh face" (and a gorgeous one at that!)

    Christian = Matt Bomer. To me, he screams Christian! Just look at the guy! Plus he looks damn good in a suit...and topless 😉 And he isn't totally main stream either (even though he was in Magic Mike, he's Ken, btw) . 🙂

  • Joanna

    I find that either Christian Hensworth or Matt Bomer would be Amazing Christian Grey! As for Ana, Emmy Rossum would be a good fit. She has the ability to be that awkward naive Ana that we all relate to. Clumsy, quiet, yet still beautiful, I just love Emmy and feel like I could relate more to her because she acts natural and can pull off the natural beauty that the role of Ana calls for! I had this picture in my head the entire time reading the book and could not figure out who they were, so I googled actors/actresses and these two paired together I think would be amazing!

    • Joanna

      Just PLEASE NONE of the Twilight Cast...They've already had their moments!

  • VB Rock

    ALEX PETTYFER!!!!! Please please please please NO VAMPIRES. SOOOOOOOOO cliche. PS: CG is talented and smart - Ian S. is NOT!!!!!!
    Go Alex!!!!!!!!!!!! (w/ Emilia Clarke)

  • Rowines

    ALEXIS BLEDEL for Ana S. PLEASE NOOOOOO Kristen Stewart she sucks which is sad to say because shes been in movies since she was a little kids and still doesnt have the acting down....

  • Jessica

    Emilia Clarke would be great...and I would still love to see Colin Egglesfield or Chris Hemsworth as Christian

  • Amanda

    Felcity Jones or unknown actress

  • Jessica

    Katie Cassidy from Harper's Island and Nightmare on Elm Street (the remake) she has the big blue eyes and looks young enough for the role. Alexis Bledel would not work for the role because she looks to old and i highly doubt she would do it. KRISTEN STEWART WILL RUIN THE ROLE! Ian Somerhalder is perfect for christian. Charlize Theron might be just a little to young for Mrs. Robinson but i totally see it. Blake Lively would be a good Kate and Lucy Hale could be a great Mia

  • Chloe

    There needs to be open auditions for the role Anastasia Steele!! It'd be even better for the movie if a young unknown actress plays her role, it'd cast an air of mystery!

    I would love to play Ana! I have the long hair, big eyes, personality and experience to grow within her character. Everything she does in the book is like me! Everyone I know who has read the book keep telling me i'm who they envision as Ana, I just need to be able to tryout. Even if I don't get it, I want to be in the movie somehow 😉

    As for Christian, i have 3 favorites: Jessie Pavelka, William Levy, and Paul Walker

  • Stephanie

    Emmy Rossum and Ian Somerhalder are my picks!

  • Sian

    Leighton, Rachel Bilson or Alexis would all do a great job. There is only one Christian Grey and thats Matt Bomer. Please NOT Chris Hemmsworth however I think he could make a great Ethan. Charlize as Mrs R, Blake as Kate and Jesse Metcalfe as Jose. #Perfectcast

  • Amy

    I like the Ana that is on the website ( that can be found on EL James website.

  • Maitee Velez

    I think Caitlin Gerard would be great for the role!!

  • Dani

    I'd say for Ana, Emma Stone and for Christian, Robert Downey Jr.

    they look so good together!

    I totally have been cheering for Lily Collins for a long time - but now that I have seen Emilia Clarke in Game of Thrones, she's the new girl I'm rooting her. Check out some YouTube videos of her from she show - she's brilliant. On the other hand, I love Alexander Skarsgard for Christian. The things he does and the way he acts on True Blood aren't far from Christian's character.

    • Nicole

      Whoops, I meant the new girl I'm rooting for*

  • Teresa Parenti

    Ana Steele, I see Ashley Greene.....She has that look and I think she could do the part justice....With either Channing Tatum or Zac Efron as possible Christian Greys.....

  • alexis bledel deff!!1

  • Nicole

    I could totally see Ian Somerhalder for Christian too.

  • Laura

    Anna Kendrick

  • Tina

    I think Ashley Greene would play Ana Steele well. She has the look.

  • darlene

    Emmy Rossum Emmy Rossum Emmy Rossum Emmy Rossum Emmy Rossum Emmy Rossum Emmy Rossum Emmy Rossum Emmy Rossum!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Leslie

    Emma stone or someone with beautiful light eyes. Her hair can be dyed. But the eyes must stand out.

  • Randi

    I am tired of Kristen Stewart. I agree she would ruin the character of Ana.

    I agree that visually Alexis Bledel is who I see as Ana although I don't know if I think should could pull off the role. Others I would like are Emma Stone, Rooney Mara, or Emilia Clarke.

    Charlize Theron would be a great Mrs Robinson.

    For Christian I am not entirely sure. Chris Hemsworth might be good but I do like the look of Ian Somerhalder and also could see Michael Fassbender. I just don't want to see a typical hollywood blockbuster actor who has been in so many other roles that he won't be able to make Christian unique. I do not want to see Ryan Gosling, Robert Pattinson, Paul Walker, or anyone known for being in a series of films playing the same character. Maybe someone totally new would be the way to go.

  • Courtney

    Jenna Dewan Tatum 🙂 because Channing Tatum will only consider being christian gray if his wife would be Ana!!

  • Anna Gray

    I like Mils Kunis or Ashley Green as Ana. And Chris Pine as Christian.

  • How about an unknown... like me. I have big brown eyes and long brown hair. Willing to try new things...

  • jessica

    alexis bledel would be perfect, slim brown hair shes similar to who I pictured reading the books!!!!!!!!! or kristen stewart ... for kate i think Emily VanCamp

  • Brittany wilson

    Felicity jones is a good choice, definently no twilight girl yuck, emma stone, I like her but believe shesnot in the right mind set for the part and agree wholelyon ian somerholden playing christian

  • alexis bledel has exactly the look and innocence that i imagined in the book - def ian somerhalder for christian i think

  • Abby

    Allison Williams and alexander Skarsgard!

  • Megan

    Alexis Bledel for Anna

    Maggie Grace for Kate
    Alex Pettyfer for Ethan
    Ryan Reynolds for Elliot
    Emmy Rossum or Ashley Greene for Mia
    Shemar Moore for Taylor
    Sharon Stone for Elena

  • Jennie

    How about Bono's daughter... Eve Hewson. She young, new and up and coming! Ana should be a new face!! ( and Chris Pine for Christian,,,)

  • karen

    Alyssa Milano as Ana and Channing Tatum as christian

  • Denise

    Nina Dobrev would be good as Ana 🙂

  • tracy

    Mia Wasikowska for Ana

  • Miriam

    Alexis Bledel for Anna
    Cam Gigandet for Christina

  • Kaytee

    Emily Browning!!
    Matt Bomer
    Emily Clarke!!

  • Priscilla

    I think, Mila Cunis, Natalie Portman or Leighton Meester! and Blake Lively like kate would be just perfect! Why does everyone wants Alexis Bledel????

  • Vicki

    Alexis Bleidel for sure. She was so good on "Mad Men" this season. She fits the role exactly (especially blue eyes & dark hair).

  • Julia

    honestly i don't care what anybody thinks but i think Troian Bellisario should play the part of Ana.

  • CJ

    Zoey Deschanel

  • Aimee

    Zooey Deschanel and Liam McIntyre.

  • Jewels

    How about Natalie Portman?

  • Lindsay

    Camilla Belle as Ana and Colin Egglesfield as Christian 😀

  • Courtney

    Christian: Chris Pine
    Anastasia: Jessica Stroup

    They would be perfect! Both young and look amazing together!

    Love this trilogy!

  • Kim Mitchell

    Jessie Pavelka as Christian Grey
    Emilia Clark as Ana

  • lauren

    Emma Roberts

  • lisa

    Either Alexis Bleidel or Lucy Hale for Ana! Matt Bomer or Ian Somerhalder for Christian! Too perfect for words

  • Jeanette

    I could see Keira Knightley as Anastasia............

    • Jeanette

      I could see Keira Knightley as Anastasia.....

  • Tierney

    Chris Pine as Christian-Rachel Bilson as Ana-Katie Cassidy as Kate-Alex Pettyfer as Elliot-Josie Bissett as Mrs. Robinson-Liam Hemsworth as Ethan-Jason Statham as Taylor-Diane Lane as Grace

  • Ashley

    Alexis Bledel !

  • samantha

    Emilia Clarke I think would be wonderful at the AS piece....and I think we need younger but sexy choices for Mr. Grey - people forget he is only his 20's in the series, not in his 30s and 40s....And that is how old the actors are if not older people want to play christian....It's obvious their age when you look at them I think we need a charming new comer

  • Gypsy

    Alexis Bledel is Ana
    Armie Hammer is Christian
    Emma Stone is Kate
    Liam Hemsworth is Ethan
    Wilmer Valderrama is Jose
    Ryan Gosling is Elliott
    Zooey Deschanel is Mia
    Ryan Reynolds is Taylor

    Michael Keaton is Ray Steele
    Mary Steenburgen is Carla
    Chris Meloni: as Jack Hyde
    Helen Mirren is Mrs Jones
    Alan Rickman. is Dr. Flynn

  • Dee Dee

    Ana is only 22 years old. Please dont cast Kristin Stewart, she looks cheap, her acting is horrible and she is so sullen. I don't think any big named actress would work. I think this needs to come from the "casting couch" and get an unknown. someone who would totally be Ana....

    Same really with Christian. but the graceful, quirky Benedict Cumberbatch from the Sherlock PBS series would be a perfect match.

  • Lori

    LUCY HALE !!!!
    Ian Somerhalder or Henry Cavill

  • Aby

    Michael Fassbender and Jessica Stroup for the couple of Christian Grey and Ana Steele! 😀

  • Kirstie

    Anyone!! Not Kristen Stewart!!!! She would soo ruin it for me. Also this book is nothing like Twilight watching it with her in it will just remind everyone off it...

  • Kristy

    I didn't know who this Alex Bledel was so I looked her up. I think she would be a great fit for Ana! Along with Ian somerhalder as Christian 🙂

  • Robin

    Ana - Emmy Rossum or Katie Holmes
    Christian - Channing Tatum or Matt Bomer
    Kate - Scarlet Johanson
    Elliot - Paul Walker
    Ethan - Alex Pettyfer
    Mia - Mila Kunis
    Jack Hyde - Alec Baldwin
    Mrs Robinson - Charlize Theron
    Taylor - Shemar Moore

    No matter what, PLEASE NO TWILIGHT cast!!! I love Twilight but the cast has already had their moment in the spotlight. Also, PLEASE NO RYAN GOSLING!!! I love him but he is no Christian Grey.

  • Jills

    emma stone

    Elizabeth Olsen should be Anastasia Steele and Armie Hammer should be Christian Grey

    That's all I got so far... (:

  • Sara


  • Caroline

    Emma Stone for Ana
    Alexander Skarsgard for Christian


  • Laura

    Alexandra Daddario for Anastasia Steele
    Ian Somethalder for Christian Grey

    … nuff said

  • emma

    Felicity Jones

  • anita

    Jennifer Ana

    • Debra

      Jennifer Lawrence seems like the perfect Katherine

  • Laura

    zooey deschanel- if Kristen Stewart plays the part of Ana, I will be one reader who refuses to watch the movies- She will ruin the character ... lets leave her at Bella and thats that!

  • Simona

    What is it with this Ian Somerhalder infatuation? Besides the fact that he has bright eyes, he's really not that good of an actor and looks way too plastic in a I'm-a-Hollywood star-full-of-myself type of way.

    Christian Grey has to look overconfident and boyishly shy at the same time. I don't think women all over the world would appreciate the standard all-American look, both actors should be a little more exotic in a way. Take a sneak peak at German actor KEN DUKEN for example in the movie Zweiohrküken - he has a manly-boyish look and a jaw-dropping sex appeal to him that he doesn't even realize. That's the kind of man expected for the role.

    And as for the leading lady - I believe a new, fresh face wouldn't be so bad. Plus, have in mind that the movie should appeal to women of all ages and shouldn't have a cast that is appealing to love-struck teenagers.

  • Stephanie

    Lucy Hale, maybe Vanessa Hudgens.... or Alexis Bledel....

  • Lych

    ALEXIS BLEDEL as Anastasia Steele

  • Krista

    Katie Lowes for Anna

  • Donna

    katie holmes

  • Nicole

    sorry guys, she's pretty and all but Alexis Bledel is too old for the role.
    I think Nina Dobrev would be PERFECT as Ana.

    Ian Somerhalder is also the perfect Christian Grey.

  • Erin

    Ashley Greene for Ana, she is so beautiful she will make the perfect Anna. I can't decide on a good Christian tho, possibly Ian Sommerhalder or I'd even like to see Ryan Reynolds get the part.

  • Ann

    Alexis Bledel would be perfect in every way! I hadn't even thought about her until I read these comments!
    I hope they take our opinions into consideration.

  • Hetty

    Alexis Bledel, for sure! Brunette with clear blue eyes, think she would be perfect!

  • Kristi

    What about Emily Browning? She's got the eyes, the looks, and she can act! She would be perfect for Ana next to Ian Somerhalder

  • Meva

    I think they should go with a relatively unknown actress for Ana much like Kristen Stewart was relatively unknown before Twilight. It also is representative of the story line where Christian is famous, well known and successful & Ana is a regular gal, naive & just beginning her adulthood journey.

    Would love to see Michelle Pfeiffer or Kim Basinger play Mrs. Robinson.

    While there are a lot of great looking male contenders for the role of Christian, this is the kind of role that calls for some serious acting chops or it runs the risk of coming across as cheese. For that reason, I think only actors in the league of Ryan Gosling & Michael Fassbender should be considered.

  • sandy

    Alexis Bledel

  • Brandalyn

    I totally agree, Alexis Bledel. She seems like the perfect Ana, innocent, naive, could act clumsy. She was my first choice!

    As for Christian, I would cast either Ian Somerholder (love his eyes) or Hayden Christensen. For Christian, I believe you need someone that women would gush over but not someone that is too over the top, like Channing Tatum. No offense to him, I love him, he is really hot, loved Magic Mike, but he is over the top. Maybe Channing can be Taylor.

    And a resounding no to Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson. I like the vampire movies well enough, but they are no Christian and Ana.

  • Ginger

    Emma Stone!!!

  • nicole

    I think Emma Stone would be great for the roll of Ana!!!!

  • anna

    Nina Dobrev 😀

  • Debra

    Alexis Bledel she seems like the perfect Ana 🙂

  • Ember

    Emma Watson.

  • Definitely Matt Bomer for Christian, if not, only other option is Ian Somerholder. For Ana, I pictured Nina Dobrev or Emma Stone would also be perfect!

  • emily macmillan

    alexis bledel please:) please:) and alexander skarsgard for christian...or ian somerhalder...:)

  • TAMY

    ANNE HATHAWAY!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Taylor

    alexis bledel and chris hemsworth!! perfect fit for anastasia and christian!!

  • Vanessa

    I like the idea of Emma Roberts and Henry Cavill or Chris Pine.

  • heather

    Alexandra Daddrio

  • Stacie

    Ashley Green and Zac Efron......

  • Mimi

    EMMY ROSSUM!!!!!!

  • Nese

    Hemsworth and Hathaway

  • Brandy

    I find it amusing that anyone can think of alexis bledel, emma roberts, ann hathaway, emma watson, or emma stone tied to a bed on the receiving end of Mr. Grey's BDSM. Too many clean-cut goody two-shoes being named..I don't want to see an actress who has played the comedy/psychological thriller...E.L. James developed Ana character after Bella (Kirsten Stewart), she should play Ana. My vote is Kirsten Stewart!

  • mary

    How about Katie HOMES, she would be perfect!

  • Kristian

    ALEXIS BLEDEL and MATT BOMER!!! Has anyone seen the Youtube trailers someone made ughh they are AMAZING!!!! check out Fifty Shades of Grey Theatrical Trailer & Fifty Shades of Grey Unofficial Trailer!!!!!! so Hotttttttt

  • asia

    Alexis Bledel is the only person that should be on here she is a giving! Big blue eyes, beautiful skin, and she has that Americas sweetheart look to her!

  • carly

    E L James already said no to Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson being in the film... thank god!

  • jane elliott

    natalie portman would be a brill anna ...member blackswan?? whattt a preformance!!! ryan gosling or ian suderland to play grey ....

  • Cathy

    Christian was written for Ian Somerhalder! It is so him. Ana should be played by Shelly Hennig.
    Totally innocent and naive.
    Can't agree with anyone on the casting poll. DEFINITELY not Kristen Stewart. Her akward a## would ruin the movie and Ana for me!

  • Hub

    Emma Stone
    Alexis Bledel is not attractive at all.

  • Tami G

    I think Rachel McAdams would be a perfect Ana or maybe Katie Holmes and as far as Christian goes I would go with Ryan G or James Scott (Days)!!

  • leanne

    Alex bedell

  • Alexis Bledel...hello...fits Ana's description perfectly!

  • Natalie

    Emmy Rossum and Ian Somerhalder would be petfect!!

  • Katie

    emilia clarke and matt bomer would be absolutely perfect <3

  • Hannah Elizabeth

    Mila Kunis, definitely. she has that sexy side to her but a spunky I-won't-take-shit-from-a-man side to her. & she's beautiful!

  • Regina

    Emilia Clarke is my Ana.

  • V

    Amber Heard would make a great Kate K.; however, I am still stuck on Ana and Christian - I will have to get back to you on that ... Casting Crew, call me!

  • V

    I love almost everyone's post here, but Ann Hathaway? Emma Stone? C'mon! Sorry, but NO way! I am a fan of both but they do not fit the part ... I agree that Nina Dobrev could be Ana (she definitely looks young enough) ... I think the characters need to look and be beyond who we could ever imagine -- people who can Act! Again... Casting Crew, call me 😉

  • V

    I see Henry Cavill playing Elliot ...

  • Mayra

    Matt Bomer and Sophia Bush or the girl (Jenna) from MtV's awkward!

  • Deese

    Mila Kunis , Ashley Greene or Lucy Hales as Anastacia .. Anne Hathway and Natalie portman do not look early 20's. As Christian, Rick Malambro or Chase Crawford with a good haircut and buffed. Rick was the main character in Step Up 3 D. Ryan G doesn't have the rugged look and
    Channing doesn't either.

  • Sollie

    Kristen Steward and Robert Pattison, though they were the twilight couple, but their on screen chemistry was totally rocking in their love scenes in the last movie. I soo totally see them as Ana and Christian...

  • Tricia

    Ian Somerhalder and Lucy Hale thats how I picture them

  • Melissa Claire Egan from The Young and the Restless bar none.....

  • Christina

    Alexis Bledel... 100% without a doubt!

  • Grace

    Ashley Green as Ana
    Matt Bomer or Bradley Cooper as Christian

  • Jen

    OMG!!! Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder.

  • Theresa Archuleta

    I think that Zooey Deschanel from "New Girl" or Mila Kunis.

    I also think that Christian should be played by Liam Hemsworth.

  • Betty

    I think after reading all three books twice " Keira Knightley" would fill the bill for beautiful and sexy and outstanding actress for the part of Anastasia.

  • Tania

    Amanda Seyfried ist the perfect woman for this role. she is how i imagine Ana - as Amanda Seyfried

  • Stephanie/Julie

    Our cast preferences:
    Ana: Alexis Bledel or Lucy Hale
    Christian:Alexander Skarsgard
    Kate: Ashley Greene
    Elliot: Kellan Lutz
    Mia: Selena Gomez

  • Lindsey

    Alexis Bledel is perfect for Ana! And for Christian; Chris Hemsworth, definately, he's perfect.

  • IvanaDyP

    As Ana: Emilia Clarke; Lyndsy Fonseca or Nina Dobrev. I think this movie is a GREAT chance for one of these un-rated , AMAZING actresses to get famous.
    Also, I can see them playing Ana very well. Especially Emilia, who has no problem with nudity.
    Tho Nina can be sassy and naive at the same time, which very important for the role of Ana, but those properties has Lyndsy too. So I'm confused. But, pleaseee at least put one of them to the decent voting.

    Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer are my choice for Christian.

    • elizabeth

      i agree nina dobrev

  • Sam

    Alexis Bledel fits the role of Ana. She has the biggest blue eyes. Mathew Bomer as Christian...this is who i kept picturing.

  • Morgan

    Gag me with these choices! Really people? Can we not put any thought into this? Ashley Benson is prefect for the role. She is within range and just dye her hair, and we are good to go. Her eyes are prefect too.

    Ian? Yup I'll take him too. He's a good one for the role.

    Alexis Bledel - gag me ladies. She is over done, no thanks I can't stand her voice what so ever.

    I truly hope they actually put some thought into this movie. I'd hate to see it turn out to be like Twilight.

  • Meg

    I think Jennifer Lawrence would make a perfect Ana.

  • Jessica

    Alexis Bledel, she fits the description and is innocent but I could see her being bad just like Ana.

  • Debi S

    Emma Stone for Ana!!! She's perfect and a great actress too!

  • Samantha

    I think they should find a new actress with no other major role parts to cast as Anastacia Steele. I t would be much better than a already established actress. NEEDS TO BE GIRL NEXT DOOR LOOK!!!

  • Tracy

    Ashley Greene and Ian Somerhalder

  • Emma

    Emily Browning or Emilia Clarke

  • pinoymom

    Elizabeth Olsen or Rooney Mara

  • Sami

    I like Ashley Green as Ana, but if it cant be her i could also see Alexis Bledel. but i really really want to see Ashley Green and Henry Cavill.

  • Eva B

    Anne Hathaway I think would be perfect!

  • Sophia

    Analeigh Tipton from "Crazy Stupid love" that played Jessica. She is innocent looking, the right age, dark haired and blue eyed. And she is still a new enough actress to be a fresh face.

  • Dawn

    I could really see Alexander Skarsgard playing the role of Christian. He has shown such a diversity on True Blood (sweet, sexy, angry, name some). He has an amazing body and could definitely be intimidating. I could easily see him being Fifty...

    I can't really say as to who I'd select for the role of Anastasia. I'd prefer to see an actress that maybe we don't know so well. I have developed somewhat of a visual of her, as a person, but not really her face.

    As with many of the recent book series that have become movie franchises, it's nice to have new faces and not people brought in from other movie franchises. This was the case with Harry Potter, Twilight, and now The Hunger Games. They should each have their own cast, separate from others, so we don't compare the actors and actresses to their previous roles within those films.

  • Bo-Katan

    Did anyone say Emma Roberts?

  • cassandra

    I think alexis would be perfect. shes looks like such a sweet and ridiculously innocent girl. thats what the movie would need....they got big shoes to fill! n if kristin stewart or robert pattinson get the parts i know people will start a riot. ive heard they might n it will completely ruin the movie

  • Carolyn

    I think Felicity Jones would be great - she looks young & fresh and could carry off all the looks and style brilliantly

  • Mary

    For me the best Anastasia can be Anne Hathaway...i hope to see her with Ian Somehalder.

  • Rhonda

    I think either Piper Perabo or Amanda Seyfried would be a great Ana and either Colin Egglesfield or Matthew Bomer as Christian.

  • Melissa

    Another actress who I think has the perfect look is Felicity Jones.

  • Caroline

    Alexandra Daddario fits the description to a T

  • Jenny

    Alexis Bledel all the way!

  • Miranda

    Alexis Bledel, hands down!!

  • Catie S

    Jennifer Alexander would be perfect! She looks like the Ana I pictured in my head as I read the books. Super pretty!! 🙂

    I especially love this photo - notice the zip tie! 😉

  • jessie

    Jennifer love heweitt said she wanted the role. i think she would be great. or mila. none of the girls who plays in any of the kids series or shows. my daughter watches those n it would be weird to see them in kids shows n in an adult movie....

  • Rafaela

    I think that Astrid Bergès-Frisbey would be a marvel choice for the role of Anastacia Steele, she has the looks: big eyes, pale skin, the hair, the body. She's a great actress too, with a cool look of pure innocence. And on top of that I always picture Miss Steele having sort of a french beauty.

  • Mikhaila

    I think Emilia Clarke as Ana and def Ian Somerhalder as Christian

  • Cheryl

    I don't know what the problem is with many posters - Alexis Bledel is 10 years to old for this part!! Let's get an unknown for Ana. I think Christian is hard because he is different for all of us - we pick actors based on what we think is beautiful - our opinion. I think for Mrs. Robinson Sharon Stone would be perfect!!

  • Anne Hatheway or Rose Byrn. The BDSM sex acts require a degree mof maturity I don't think most 20 somethings have. I'd feel more comfortable seeing a late 20s or early 30s woman playing this role. I know...I sound like an old fart...I'm 41, I just think there's a certain degree of maturity and responsibility even if 'acting' out these scenes.

    • guest

      except the character in the book is 21 and 22....sooo someone in their 30s wouldn't be right for the role, imho.

  • Amanda

    I like Kristen Stewart, but no!! I say either Allison Williams or Alexis Bledel...

  • jj

    Bella Heathcote or Felicity Jones or Astrid Berges-Frisbey or Alexandra Daddario

  • Michelle

    I could totally see Katie Holmes as Anastasia Steele she is beautiful, innocent looking, and yet she can obviously handle herself with the darker side of a man.

  • sam

    omq anyone but kristen stewart. she is already bella dnt u think we need someone new.! someone waaay better.!

  • Jessica

    I like Alexis Bledel or maybe, Zooey Dechanel or Mila Kunis. I disagree with Ian, I think he's all wrong. If Simon Baker changed his hair, he would work. But I think Matt Bomer is absolutely perfect. He has the look, just watch him on white collar. Micha Collins might work for Christian also. I think Ana needs someone unknown, an unfamiliar face to help with the shy uncertain look of her character.

  • sammirae

    alexis bledel please!!!

  • No

    Definitely agree with Alexis Bledel

  • Rachyroo

    It has GOT to be Matt Bomer...... He is absolutely PERFECT. The most handsome gorgeous serious/flirty/funny Christian there could possibly be...... When I saw the teaser trailer online I was shouting 'Yes yes yes!!!' and for Ana I like Alexis Bledal (in a perfect American way) or Claire Foy for a more interesting nervy, less obvious beauty. But if they don't cast Matt Bomer..... I am not alone that I will be heart broken......

  • tara

    I like Alexis bledel. She is perfect for ana. And Ian somerhalder for Christian.

  • Karla

    Emilia Clarke from Game Of Thrones. Not only is she beautiful and innocent looking like Ana Steele but is very talented actress as well.

  • elizabeth

    Nina dobrev she has dark hair and good actress or Ashley greene

  • Jen

    I see Paul Walker as Christian.

    And, I picture either Alexis Bledel or Jenna Dewan as Ana. However, I saw that someone mentioned Chyler Leigh, (Lexie from ER), and I think she could work.

    I also picture Charlize Theron as Mrs. Robinson

    I hope they don't cast over exposed actors/actresses because I think it would take away from the movie.

  • Tarah

    I think Lucy Hale or Nina Dubrev would be a great choice

  • Kathy

    Lucy Hale for Ana and James Scott for Christian.

  • Chandi

    elizabeth olsen is the only one coming to mind.. though i cant picture anyone in particular for ana..



  • Sofia

    I think that Alexis Bledel would be the the perfect choice! She is everything that I idealize in this character in real life...unquestionably!

  • Nicole

    Ashley Greene or Emma Watson as Ana. Those are who I have pictured. Not sure for Christian, not to many guys are heart stopping drop dead gorgeous.

  • Jen

    After reading and looking over the choices I can not picture anyone but Alexis Bledel playing Ana. I would like to see Matt Bomer play Grey.

  • Nina Dobrev

  • Iris

    I believe Cody Horn would make the perfect Ana Steele!

  • Iris

    Cody Horn should play Ana Steele

  • Ruth

    Mila Kunis or Emmy Rossum.... just look at them, either one can play the innocent naive college graduate but then be sexy at the same time. Sharon Stone would be perfect for Mrs. Robinson and for Christian.... that's a tough one because you have got to find the "perfect" one to make the movie worth watching. My pick would be Shemar Moore 🙂

  • sarah

    My vote is for Mila Kunis or Katie Holmes as Ms.Steele

  • Megan

    I think it should be Lucy Hale for Anastasia Steele. She would be amazing in that part. As for Christian Grey I think Ian Somerholder or Matthew Bomer would do a great job.

  • karrie

    LYNDSY FONSECA !!!!!!! Hands down looks perfect for ANA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • june

    Lyndsy Fonseca has the blue eyes and brown hair!!!!!!!! She's gorgeous as Ana!

  • Shelly

    Emma Watson is quite high up in the list to play Ana. And she would be perfect for it too. She is young, pretty, intelligent...

  • Melissa


  • Melissa

    Henry Cavill as Christian = PERFECTION!

  • monica

    alexis bledel!!! please no ryan gosling

  • guest

    Emilia Clarke would be perfect. Look up images of, she's got the nerve to take this part all the way and looks innocent and is the right age.

  • judy julio

    why hasnt anyone thought of missy peregrym from rookie blue she would make a great ana steele nd no matter what ian somerhalder needs to be christian it is a must he could protray him better than anyone!!!! i will protest if they get that emma watson to do anna that is so not rright

  • Monica+

    lucy hale she is perfect

  • Shaniqua

    Lucy hale is a PERFECT Anastasia!!


    Aurelia was recently in the movie 11/11/11

  • Gina

    Alexis Bleidel is the perfect Anastacia Long brown hair, pale skin and sky blue eyes

  • Gily

    I think alexis bledel is perfect for Anastasia Steele and Ian Somerhandler is my number choice for Cristian Grey because he acts like him with the attitude and everything from seeing vampire diaries.

  • Ashley Greene for Ana (I see her or possibly Sophia Bush)
    For Christian, I like the idea of Ryan Gosling/Alexander Skarsgard/Jensen Ackles mmmm :p & quite frankly Cam Gigandet looks gorgeous in a suit and has a certain look about him.

  • Joanna

    i was on the Kristen Stewart train when i first started reading the trilogy but now that i'm on the final book I've totally switched trains and i'm now on the Alexis Bleidel train....... she will be awesome as Ana....... urgh i wish they would pick her... and that she would agree to be Ana.....

  • Karolin

    I have read all books & these are the people I can see...

    For sure Christian Grey should be Ian Somerhalder

    Ana: also can play as other subs
    Alexis Bledel
    Zooey Deschanel
    Marie Avgeropoulos
    Mila Kunis
    Emma Stone

    Kate: Amanda Seyfried

    Mia: Anna Kendrick
    Ashley Green

  • Mercy

    Emma Stone is the perfect one to play the role of Anastasia!

  • Bobby

    I think Ashley Greene would make a wonderful Ana, Rachael Adams would make a good Kate, because of her personality.

    Alexander Skarsgard would make a beautiful Christian, Channing Tatum or Ryan Gosling would make a good Elliot.

    Michelle Pfiffer would make the best Mrs. Robinson.

    Diane Lane for Mrs. Grey

    Richard Gere for Mr. Grey

  • James

    I would cast Lisa, from Celtic Woman. She has the looks and body to play the part well

  • Emma

    Ian Somerhalder as Chistian Grey with Alexis Bledel as Ana would be a PERFECT match. Im sick seeing Kriten Stewart and Amanda Seyfried everywhere!

    Ethan: Chase Crawford
    Elena: Melinda Clarke ( I know she has red hair but she plays evil seductress so well) or Elizabeth Hurley ( I dont care if Elena is Blonde or not)

  • Sandy

    Ashley Rickards as Ana!!

  • gab


  • shamal

    Alexandra Daddario as Ana--she IS Ana--look at those big innocent blue eys with a hint of mischief in them; Colin Eggelsfield as Christian, Amanda Seyfreid as Kate, Charlize Theron as Mrs. Robinson, Ashely Greene as Mia


    Rachel McAdams

  • Jayne

    Ana could be played by Rose Byrne, she has a vulnerability about her. Ian Somerhalder for Christian Grey

  • Jayne

    Ian Somerhalder for Christian Grey.
    Rose Byrne for Ana Steele.

  • stephanie

    Would love to see Ashley Greene play Anastasia Steele.

  • penelope

    Zoe Saldana, I think!!

  • Elizabeth

    Lucy Hale for Anastasia Steele and Ian Somerhalder for Christian Grey. They look good together and both perfect for the part.

  • Arianna

    Kristen Stewart is annoying along with Amanda Seyfried (she's not even pretty), they are a no-go.
    I think Ana should be played by Natalie Portman and Christian by Ian

  • Sarina

    Lily Collins would be a perfect Anastasia Steele! need someone not so known, that will make the film there own . Well known actress Natalie portman. Definitely not Kristen Stewart ! She is boring ...Mr Grey either ...Henry Cavill new to the scenes or Christean Bale (has experience in this kind of film ) american Psyco

  • keller

    Emila Clarke as Ana
    Gabriel Macht or Charlie Hunnam as Christian
    Matt Barr as Elliot

  • Karen

    Alexis Bledel for Anastasia. Matt Boomer for Grey. Julie Gonzalo for Kate. Tom Hiddleston for Jack Hyde. Jesse Metcalfe for Jose.

  • Tomi Morrison

    Ian Somerhalder for Christian and Alexis Bledel for Ana. Why the hell isn't she in the polls when she tops off every poll for the role?

  • JustME

    Alexis Bledel is the PERFECT ana steele... she's beautiful and she has the sweet and innocent look that ana has.. 🙂

  • twaine

    Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer for Christian Grey.. i think either of them will be a great CG.. the other choices? NO THANKS!! For Anastasia Steele, Alexis Bledel.. by just looking at her, you can say that "she IS ana.." can't picture anybody else. ...Kristen Stewart? no part in the book said that ana is bitchy!.. so she's definitely NOT fit for the role.. Peace!

  • Lauren

    lucy hale would be perfectttttt!

  • DJbozi

    Mila Kunis 4 Anna ovcoz! 😉

  • audrey musick

    Sandra Bullock shoud play Anastasia Steel and Robert Downey Jr should play Christian Grey.........hands down !!!!!

  • Emma

    Lucy Griffiths, quite an obscure unknown that has recently appeared in True Blood, looks quite doe eyed and naive, but hot too would make a perfect Ana

  • TAnne

    Zooey deschanel would be a good Ana, somewhat clumsy and awkward.

  • Becky

    Alexis Bledel!

  • Amanda

    Shailene Shailene Shailene Woodley!!!! She is perfect for the role!!

  • Christian Grey: Matt Bomer / Michael Fassbender / Henry Cavill
    Anastasia Steele: Lucy Hale / Emmy Rossum
    never, never, never Kristen Stewart...please!!!

  • chrissy

    Alexis Bledel. and MATT BOMER.... NO CONTEST!

  • Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey and Alexis Bledel as Anastasia Steele would be perfect!

  • chloe

    alexis bledel is the perfect anastasia!!! blue eyes too big for her face, brown hair and the innocent naive girl next door look, she's nailed it!! she should change her name to ana steele!! christian should be colin egglesfield to me, elliot would be ryan kwanten, mia to be ashley greene, kate would be mia wasikowska and mrs robinson nicole kidman!!

  • Shellie

    Alexis Bedel as Ana and Matt Bomer as Christian Grey. There are no other two that can play the part. Go to youtube and watch the unofficial trailer for Fifty Shades and you will be a fan. To do this book and film any justice these two must play the roles. Alexi Bedel and Matt Bomer..

  • JS

    aurelia scheppers google her

  • Sam

    Lucy Hale & Ryan Gosling

  • Michela

    Amanda Righetti from The Mentalist, sweet and strong at the same time.

  • Betty Dortega

    Ian Somerhalder as Christian & Brittany Snow as Ana!!!! Perfection! Here's a fan-made almost perfect cast. I can't stress it enough.

  • Kelly

    Leighton Meester & Alex Pettyfer would be perfect in these roles.

  • Alexis Biedel and Matt Homer, the perfect Christian and Ana!!!

  • Dan

    Alexandra Daddario or Carly Foulkes as Anastasia

    Henry Cavill as Christian

    Julie Benz as Elena Lincoln

    Alex Pettyfer or Taylor Kitsch as Elliot Grey

  • Tiffany

    Emma Watson

  • Nakeedah

    Alexander Skarsgard should be Christian hands down, and either Emmy Rossu, Iyndsy Fonesca, or Lily Collins should be Ana. Alexis Bledel isn't right for this part.

  • Ashley

    Alexis Bledel and Ian Somerhalder

  • Din

    Emma Watson and Matt Bomer : )

  • Kelly-Michelle

    I'd like to see, Emma Stone or Amber Heard as Anastasia Grey-Steele..

    And Ryan Gosling or Jonny Weston or Zac Efron or Jake Gyllenhaal as Christian Grey

  • Lily

    MEGAN FOXXXXX WITHOUT A DOUBT!!!!!!!! I really think she should be casted one because she has all the qualities the book asks for. White pale skin, skinny blue eyes brunnette and breasts which fit into christian grey masculine hands! SHe is young looking and is a huge attraction to men to watch as well as women who admire her beauty! NO DOUBT THEY HAVE TO PICK MEGAN FOX SHE IS HOT AND FITS INTO THIS CHARACTER!







  • tmt49

    Ashley Green

  • angel

    Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder... perfect! on-screen and off-screen. . .

  • Nic

    Alexis Bledel will be perfect

  • cassie

    For the role of Anastasia , my choice would be Ashley Greene, Alicia Minishew , or Rebecca Budig

  • Michelle

    Take a look at Burgess Jenkins and you'll think of Christian Grey! He has the right hair and eyes. And freckles. And a kid-like beguiling smile that hints at danger. He has shoulders! People respect him because he is a teacher (in real life!). I hope he gets a chance to portray Christian.

  • Michelle

    Alexis Bledel is beautiful and looks like she could be Ana. She even bites her lower lip! See the interview on her IMDb page. How strong is she, though? Enough to stand up to Christian?

  • Jan

    Claire Foy and Alexis would make an awesome Ana.
    Claire has the more innocent, sad look going on. she has pale white skin and amazing blue eyes. and she just has the whole Anastasia look overall, whereas Alexis does have the amazing blue eyes and is beautiful overall but sort of lacks the innocent look .She's a bit more sultry/sexy look and body which may work, since it is a pretty erotic book, but yeah i mean both would work.

  • maria

    ALEXIS BLEDEL would be really the most perfect actress for the role of Ana.

  • ana

    Christian Grey is MATT BOMER and Ana Steele NINA DOBREV

  • diace

    Alexis Bledel - Anastasia and Matt Bomer - Christian

  • CathrineMK

    Lucy Hale would be perfect for Ana!

  • Farah

    I THINK CAMILLA BELLE OR ALEXIS BLEDEL would make a perfect Ana Steele.
    and IAN SOMERHALDER OR MATT BOMER as Christian Grey

  • Adrienn koszegi

    Alexis Bledel

  • Anka

    my first choice would be: Felicity Jones but if she can't do it then it will be Alexis Bledel.

  • fifty fan

    alexis bledel is the perfect choice!!!!

  • MaryAnn

    ROONEY MARA would be perfect for Ana!

    IAN SOMERHALDER for Christian!

  • Amanda Kay

    Alexis Bledel for Ana
    Alex Pettyfer as Christian
    Jennifer Coolidge as Mrs. Robinson
    Jason Statham as Jason Taylor
    Billy Burke as Ray Steele
    Jacklynn Purdue as Mia Grey
    Kellan Lutz as Elliot Grey
    Aly Michalka as Katherine Kavanaugh
    Michael Trevino as Jose

  • Ine

    Alexis Bledel!! She's got that innocent look that makes her the perfect fit for Anastasia!

  • kirsten p.

    i would love to see Natalie Portman OR Mila Kunis as Anastasia Steele,, they got this fragile and naive but freaking sexy look!

  • Mel

    Ashley Benson

  • andjela

    LYNDSY FONSECA <3 <3 <3

  • Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel

    Look at the videos on youtube! Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel are PERFECT!

  • Kaitlyn

    I don't which of the woman above as long as it's not Kristian Steward :O When you cast her as Ana I won't go watch it! She is so expressionless and can't act at all :O Don't do the same mistake as Twilight did with casting her!

  • Brigette

    Emmy Rossum. If you've seem shameless you know the risks she can take in her scenes. She's a naturally beauty that can rock a runway as well. My vote is for her and Henry Cavill as Christian

  • BrendaV

    Emmy Rossum as Ana & Ian Somerhalder as Grey.

  • Taylor

    I feel Nina Dobrev would be a perfect Ana Steele, alongside Ian Somerhalder as Christian besides they are already have perfect chemistry from playing on Vampire Diaries and they've dated and are friends what more could you ask for in a pair!

  • Elaine

    Alexis Bledel fits the Anastasia Steele description perfectly and she is a good actress who can pull it off. 🙂

  • Glenbev

    I think Jennifer Lawrence from Hunger Games would be a perfect Anatasia Steele, along side of Ian Somerhalder as Christian Grey!!!

  • georgia

    Nina Dobrev. She proved on The Vampire Diaries that she can play both the nice, naive and bad an vicious woman. Plus she goes perfectly with Ian Somerhalder.

  • Melissa

    Alexis Bledel! If you really look at Anastasia's character traits in the story she would be perfect. Appears timid, she's skinny, pretty. Hair is on, eyes are on, figure is on. If anyone ever watched Gilmore Girls (I know it is so different from 50 Shades but hear me out) they would know that she has mastered the fiesty speaking, quick lipped part. Could totally see her rocking the lip biting! She has also mastered the awkward moment body language to a T (as described in the first meeting of Anastasia and Christian in his office). Looks great in jeans and converse sneakers but is also beautiful when done up. I think she would be amazing alongside Matt Bomer. Not sure if she'd be up for it, but if so, I would definitely pick her.

  • Marina

    Alexis Bledel!!!

  • Deanna

    zooey deschanel!!!! perfect fit

  • Samantha

    I think Ashley Greene could be a possible Anastasia!!

  • xo

    Alexix Bladel and Matt Bomer !!

  • Jean

    Emma Watson would be the best looking 'Ana', coupled with Henry Cavill as 'Christian'. The both fit the looks from the description in the books. I have read the books 6 times and may have it memorized by the time it is on the screen. This is the best love story I have read in modern time. Thank you E.L.James for sharing your fantasy.

  • Daniela

    i think that alexis bledel would make a PERFECT anastasia steele! She has that innocent/pure look

    • Nic

      Omg you guys are cray! Can you honestly see alexis bledel doing this????! NO. I can't that movie would bomb because no one would want to watch her be a
      sex symbol. She was in Gilmore Girls for like , ever. ANASTASIA STEELE: Megan Fox
      CHRISTIAN GREY: Henry Cavill

      • Suzanne Sandlin

        I think Cam Gigandet or even Hayden Christianson for the male, but I do not agree with you about Megan Fox. Yes, she is sexy and I'm sure a lot guys want to see her in a sex role, but Megan Fox is too sexy & bold right from the moment you see her. Anastasia's character is more casual, shy, or even plain when she's not in the playroom. Megan Fox is head-turning sexy, I'm not sure if audiences could view her as a plain Jane type.

  • Celeste

    I think that Lea Michele would be perfect to play Ana

    • Suzanne Sandlin

      I have to say I have never liked Lea Michelle. For some reason she annoys me. I feel like she tries too hard when she's acting. Plus, i don't think she attractive.

  • Suzanne Sandlin

    I would cast the male lead as, Cam Gigandet, (from Twilight, Burlesque, & Nanny cam) AND for the female lead, either, Alexis Bledel or Amanda SeyFried. Mainly, because Cam Gigandet is incredibly sexy & I enjoy seeing him with his clothes off! As for the female lead she needs to be an actress whom is adorable & innocent with a personality that comes out over time as you get to know her, not one whom is out-spoken or loud right from the beginning.
