’50 Shades of Grey': Channing Tatum Will Only Star in Film If Wife Jenna Dewan Plays Love Interest
In a recent Twitter interview with Glamour UK, the Magic Mike star says he’s game to play Christian Grey, a wealthy businessman with a BDSM obsession, in the movie adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey — but only if his real-life wife will play his love interest, Anastasia Steel.
“I’d only be allowed if my wife was Ana,” he says of role. Anastasia is the series’ protagonist, a young college student who enters into an kinky S&M relationship with Grey.
Tatum, 32, continues:
“She’s read the books so I don’t think she’d be impressed if she couldn’t be Ana!”
Dewan, 31, can rest a little easy for now as 50 Shades‘ author, E L James, recently announced the studio is nowhere close in securing actors for the lead roles.
“We are so far away from casting the Fifty films … no-one ruled is out… no one is ruled in. Just so you know,” she tweeted.
