Former child star Emma Watson may be ready to take on her most grown-up role to date.

According to The Sun, the Harry Potter beauty revealed she’d be open to starring in the adaptation of the raunchy sex novel 50 Shades of Grey, provided it has an interesting story to tell.

“The thing is I haven’t read any of the book because I haven’t read a script so it’s quite difficult to know what I’m turning down potentially,” she said, “but I hear it’s quite raunchy.”

“I mean if there’s interesting character development and there’s an interesting story then I would consider it — but I haven’t been offered anything,” she continued.

Watson’s name has been linked to the 50 Shades movie — which has yet to cast anyone, including a director — for months now; in July, rumors started online that she was set to play the film’s female lead, Anastasia.

About a week after, Watson, 22, addressed the rumors, telling Entertainment Weekly, “There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call. It was the same way with ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ — I never even saw a script!”

Watson currently stars in The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
