That's the latest Grey gossip anyway. Emma Watson as Anastasia Steele and Gosling as the titular Christian Grey in the film adaptation of the century.

"She's laughing, a little bit nervously as I'm sure everybody was when they read those books," co-star Nina Dobrev told Ryan Seacrest earlier today.

"She would be far more interested if he were playing Christian Grey," the Vampire Diaries star said of Emma's apparent infatuation with Mr. Gosling.

"I guess that's all it takes."

We guess. It's unclear how serious Nina was/is about Emma's interest in the film (she previously denied any involvement), but you're now up to date.
