‘Grey’ Author: Kristen Stewart Is Too Weird For ‘Fifty Shades’

Hey now! That’s not nice! To her credit, Kristen Stewart has worked really hard on hiding her awkwardness. She barely ever bites her lip anymore! Oh, that’s not what she meant? Our apologies, K-Stew.

As you might’ve heard, people are really invested in this 50 Shades of Grey book. It’s sold a lot of copies, made tons of money, and caused just about everyone everywhere to speculate who should star in the leading roles should the story be made into a film.


E.L. James, the author of the fan fic turned erotica turned best-seller was asked at a recent U.K. fan event if she would be cool with Stephenie Meyer’s choices to be Bella and Edward taking on her kinky creatures Ana and Christian. Her response is … disappointing, as she shared:

“I think it would be too strange ! It would just be .. Uggh weird!”

We think… you’re right. And also, NUTS! If we’ve learned anything, we know that Robsten = box office GOLD! Those two rack in MILLIONS! Millions UPON millions! But millions you’ve got, dontcha James. We see how it is.

Do you really think that Kristen Steward is “too weird” to play Anastasia Steele? Who’s your best bet on the cast of Fifty Shades of Grey? Tell us your list of nominees!

Ashton Kutcher to Portray Steve Jobs in Indie Biopic

Actor Ashton Kutcher, who got his break on “That ’70s Show,” will go back to the 1970s to play tech visionary Steve Jobs in an indie film about Jobs’ early life and the founding of Apple.

Production on the film, “Jobs,” is scheduled to begin in May while Kutcher is on hiatus from his hit CBS series “Two and a Half Men,” reports Variety, the film-industry trade publication. It will be directed by Joshua Michael Stern (“Swing Vote”) and “will chronicle Steve Jobs from wayward hippie to co-founder of Apple,” according to Variety.

The timing of the story, which was published Sunday on Variety’s website, combined with Kutcher’s well-known love of pranks, led some to dismiss it as an April Fools’ joke. But CNN confirmed Monday through a representative for Kutcher that the actor has signed on for the role.


Jeff Sneider, the reporter who wrote the Variety article, said on Twitter on Sunday that the movie will follow Jobs from when he and Steve Wozniak founded Apple in 1976 to when Jobs returned to the company in the late 1990s after being forced out. It won’t cover Jobs’ later years, he said.

Kutcher’s movie will face competition from Sony Pictures, which is developing its own Jobs biopic based on the best-selling book by Walter Isaacson. A CNN.com report last fall speculated on which actor might play Jobs in that movie and threw out some names — James McAvoy, Crispin Glover, Stanley Tucci, Noah Wyle — but failed to mention Kutcher.
