Fifty Shades of Grey

Between my sister in law telling me about this book and seeing it all over the news - I feel like I missed something. There is a whole trilogy and I never heard of this book.


And now that I have?

I blush.

Fifty Shades of Grey is super - um - sexy and full of - um - sex. I have heard it described as "mommy porn." Yeah ok, I would say that's pretty spot on.

Most of the time when I read a book, I end up putting a celebrity face on the character. Now that I see they are casting for the movie (which I have no idea how they will make it because of all the... um... sex) I thought I would put my spin on it.

Christian: Some of his mannerisms takes me back to Ryan Phillipe in Cruel Intentions. The way he can make his face all angry and dark and seducing at the same time.

 When I told my sister in law this, she said "Yeah but.. he's too old."
Well ok then.
I did see something about Ryan Gosling. That'll do...

Ana: I have heard a rumor that Kristen Stewart is being considered. I am sorry but this would ruin it for me. She is in no way what I would call "sexy" although she fits the clumsy/awkwardness of the book. I would rather see Natalie Portman but she, too, is too old. I am ok with Rachel Bilson but if they cast the Secret Life of the American Teenager chick - that would take a little getting used to.

Have you read this? What are your thoughts?

I agree with you and Donald. Ryan Phillipe is hot and young.

Ryan Phillippe is old, but doesnt look old and would make an awesome 28 year old stressed out ceo.. cruel intentions made him the perfect fit for christian grey and michelle trachtenberg would make a pretty hott ana steele.....
