RUMOR DEBUNKED: Emma Watson will NOT star in “Fifty Shades of Grey”

Rumors have been going around for a while now that Emma Watson will portray Anatasia Steele in the upcoming film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. The latest surge in rumors was due to an alleged report that Emma’s name had been found on stolen casting documents.

Yesterday, Emma confirmed on Twitter once and for all that there is NO truth to these rumors:

Who here actually thinks that I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life.

The tweet has since been retweeted over 36,000 times. I guess Emma’s fans are happy to hear that she won’t be a part of that particular project!

Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
