'50 Shades': Casting Kate
Who should play Anastasia's BFF in '50 Shades of Grey'?
She may have starred a 50 Shades of Grey parody, but Selena Gomez wants nothing to do with the actual movie.

During an interview with MTV, Gomez, 19, spilled the beans on taking on the role of Anastasia Steele — a college student who gets involved in an S&M relationship with millionaire Christian Grey — in E.L. James’ upcoming erotica adaptation.

What does SelGo think about the part?

“I know I’m taking risks but I don’t think I could do that,” she said of the racy role. “That would be a little too much for me.”

“When they told me about the skit, I didn’t know what [the book] was about, so I started to read it and was like, oh, this is spicy, I thought it was good, it was intriguing,” she added. “The skit was really funny.”

Since she’s out of the running, who does Selena think should star in the movie instead?

“Someone older should do that part,” she replied.

Do you think Selena should play Anastasia, or do you agree with her and see someone else starring in the role? Sound off in the comments!
