If these rumors are true, Angelina Jolie is dead set on getting a role in the upcoming ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ film. Here’s the problem…. Anastasia Steele is a young, college student – and more importantly – virginal. 37-year-old Angelina doesn’t necessarily seem like a good fit for the role (although the idea is interesting!). Rumor has it, if Angelina can’t get the part of Anastasia, she might be interested in playing “Mrs. Robinson”, the cougar who drug Christian Grey into the dark world of S&M.
According to a source quoted in the Daily Mirror newspaper, “Angelina kept hearing about the book while she was in the UK. All the girls on set were talking about it and how it’s being made into a film.”
“Angelina went out and bought herself a copy, thinking she’d love a part in the hot topic on everyone’s lips at the moment. She knows the film is bound to be a huge hit.”
Although Jolie has the dark hair and large eyes of Ana Steele, the 37-year-old is significantly older than the college graduate. Additionally, Ana is described as being innocent and virginal, not the smoldering sex appeal that Jolie often typifies.
If Angelina Jolie has her way, the role of Ana Steele would be hers.
On the other hand, perhaps she would be interested in the Elena Lincoln, or “Mrs. Robinson” character, an older, more experienced woman from Christian Grey’s past. She’s gone blond before, and she could easily slip into the character of the dominatrix female.
Other reports have Jolie as the possible director of the film, an interesting idea, though it was quickly shot down by her reps, who said that no discussions occurred between her and Universal Pictures. The studio also claimed Jolie was never approached about directing the picture.
What do you think? Should Angelina be a part of the ‘Fifty’ movie? Which role would she be suited for, if any?
