Emma Watson Responds to ’50 Shades of Grey’ Rumors: “Like Really?”
Is Emma Watson fit to be tied? That's the question on millions of minds since last week's rumor broke linking the 'Harry Potter' actress to the racy '50 Shades of Grey' adaptation. Now Emma is speaking -- er, tweeting -- out about the report, giving fans a piece of her mind regarding her link to the sexy project.
In case you missed it, a group of hackers broke into German film studio Constantin Film's database and reportedly gathered oodles of inside info about in-developement movies. One such movie was the '50 Shades of Grey' adaptation, which allegedly had Emma Watson's name attached. Watson has been associated with the pic before, but this was the closest we have ever come to a true "confirmation."
However, this seemed like news to Ms. Watson, who took to Twitter to clear things up:
On the surface, that would be a denial, and one could say that the tweet is rather dismissive of the very notion. However, sticklers that we are, we must point out that Watson doesn't outright state that she's not participating. We know how actors and studios are, coy to the very end until an official press release is unveiled. This could be one of those cases. But then again...why would she want to do '50 Shades of Grey'?
Is Emma just teasing her fans with a non-committal answer, or has she shut the door on any possibility of playing Anastasia Steele?
