Amid reports that Emma Watson was in discussions for the lead role of Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, the Internet got all sorts of excited.
For no reason.
Despite rumors linking her to the hotly-anticipated project, the Harry Potter cutie says she is not in negotiations to star, nor has she even read it.
“I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing,” she said.
“There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call or expressed interest. It was the same way with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - I never even saw a script!”
She adds that even some friends and family asked her about Fifty Shades of Grey since so many different "news" items popped up online.
Her response to that: “I told them just because there are 60 articles on the Internet doesn’t mean it’s any less true than if there are 3-4.”
