Emma Watson “In Talks” To Play Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey?

The latest rumor comes from the New York Daily News, which reports that “Emma Watson is in talks to take on the role of Anastasia Steel [sic] in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey.”
The Daily News further notes, “The 22-year-old is said to have the right looks for the part, combining a degree of innocence with the acting skills to portray the young graduate who gets swept into a world of sado-masochistic sex with a kinky billionaire, Christian Grey.”
However, while it might be true that Watson has what it takes to play Anatastia Steele, we seriously doubt the accuracy of a report that doesn’t even spell the character’s name correctly.
In any case: It’s NOT true.
Gossip Cop reached out to a rep for Watson, who tells us exclusively that there is “no truth” to the casting rumor.
