Ashley Benson Covets Fifty Shades of Grey Role

by at . Comments

Ashley Benson stars in Pretty Little Liars.

If it were up to her, she'd at Fifty Shades of Grey to her resume as well. The 22-year-old is the latest star to express an interest in the much-anticipated film.

Saying she's been trying to "break out of her good-girl mold," with more edgy films like Spring Breakers, Benson openly covets the role of Anastasia Steele.

“I’ve read every book. I want to play Anastasia,” Benson said.

Though the bubbly blonde doesn't quite match the book's description of Anastasia ("a pale, brown haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face"), she's dead set on the role, even if some fans see her as a perfect Katherine Kavanagh (Ana's BFF).

"Kate is awesome. I like all the characters, but Anastasia? I just love her so much!" the actress explained.

As soon as Universal Pictures won the motion-picture rights to the best-selling "mommy porn" BDSM-themed trilogy, fans have partaken in an ongoing fantasy casting game of who should play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

Robsten, Alexis Bledel, Armie Hammer, Emmy Rossum, Matt Bomer, and The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are all oft-mentioned names.

Think Ashley would be a good fit?



Kristen Stewart with her messy hair, wide eyes, pale and always bit her own lips...that really describe Ana. Then Ian Somerhalder, truly Mr Grey. combination of two character. Bad and good guy ! Especially his eyes.


out of all the pretty little liars girls, i didnt think she would be the most famous, thought lucy hale would be the breakout,but this girl is not going anywhere, but on her getting the part, i think if we see her with brown hair maybe, but i think emma roberts have the innocent look and she is talented, but i hope Ian gets the part of christian


I actually think she would work if she dyed her hair brown. She has that young innocent look.


Who the hell is this bitch? Alexis Bledel needs to do it for sure!
