    I'm a Kent Ellis fan. I think people with lower back pain need to know about the Kent Ellis Method, esalicpley in this overtreated society. I was able to solve my lower back problem in the privacy of my own home, without having to spend a cent, undress for a doctor or discuss my problem with anyone. I was thrilled to be able to get rid of my lower back pain so easily.


    I think Somerhalder should be Grey and shailene woodley should play Ana. :)


    Firs of all, I don't recall Ian ever lobbying for anyone. He has expressed interest in the role of Christian Grey when asked. I don't think that's lobbying.

    While I may not necessarily agree with the way Mr. Ellis expressed things, I agree and get the point he was trying to make. It's a shame others don't get it or don't want to. And not sharing an opinion doesn't make someone homophobic. This isn't your average role. Matt Bomer is not a good fit for many reasons...


    That is pure bs and politically correct Hollywood nonsense! he said he and the producers were on the same page then suddenly he tweets that he can't see Matt Bomer as Christian Grey because he's gay and he's removed from the list. he only said what many of us are thinking anyway and he's gay himself so you cant call him a homophobe.Let's be real and honest.Truth is the actor who plays Christian G will be seen as the real CG. This has quickly become one of the most loved book characters ever and women don't want their fantasy ruined knowing they have no chance in hell of ever being with or even flirting with Christian Grey. Not to mention, you go to the movies to experience a different reality, to dream and fantasize and look at desirable men on a big screen. Gay Christian Grey would just ruin it. Nothing against gay people,just the reality.
