EL James Mocks E! Claim of ‘Tension’ on Fifty Shades of Grey Set (PHOTO)


By Shari Weiss



E L James and Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson are NOT fighting — except when playfully mocking ridiculous rumors.

On Wednesday, E! News claimed there’s a “bit of tension” between the two on the movie’s Vancouver film set.

“Sam is getting annoyed about the way the script is being handled,” a “source” told the outlet. “E L James wants the movie to match the book exactly, but Sam has a different perspective.”

The “source” adds, “Sam is reminding E L she writes books and she makes movies. This has caused some tension between the two of them.”

That appears to be news to James and Taylor-Johnson, with the pair taking to Instagram to joke about the rumor.

The photo — see above and below — shows the duo with their dukes up, along with the caption, “The gloves are off…”

Earlier this month, another wrong report claimed James’ trilogy of novels would be condensed into just one movie.
