Did You Know?
[on Fifty Shades of Grey] I just really understand it. I think it's an incredible love story and that's why it's affected so many people. Erica (EL James) did a really good job of explaining how that just can happen sometimes and you have this chemical pull to someone. Adding in the sex makes it perfect. Sometimes you feel a little bit naughty and that's okay.
She did not tell anyone about being involved in the auditioning process for the role of Anastasia Steele. She has said that if the project fell through or she wasn't selected she didn't want to have to explain herself or the process repeatedly. After she was cast as Anastasia, she couldn't tell anyone for weeks as the studio prepared an official casting announcement.
