Despite plenty of talk fuelling suggestions that Emma Watson could be a hot contender for the role of Anastasia Steele in a Fifty Shades of Grey movie, the actress has now taken to Twitter to confirm she won't be involved.
Taking a rhetoric tact, Emma asked fans: "Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life." [sic]
The message went on to be retweeted more than 35,000 times by fans who were quick to deny their belief in the hearsay. Emma then responded: "Good. Well that’s sorted then."
Mila Kunis also recently confirmed that she won't be involved with the movie adaptation of EL James' novel, saying at a press conference: "No, you will not see me in Fifty Shades of Grey. I’m so sorry."
So, with two potential leads now out of the running, we wonder who will decide to step up to the plate?
