Emma Watson On '50 Shades' Rumor: 'Who Here Actually Thinks I Would Do 50 Shades Of Grey As A Movie?'

Posted: Updated:

All hail Emma Watson. The erstwhile Hermione Granger took to Twitter on Saturday night to dispel any notion that she might star in the upcoming adaptation of the S&M novel "Fifty Shades Of Grey," and did it with style:


Emma Watson
Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life.

Watson tweeted more about the rumor on Sunday:


Emma Watson
Good. Well that's that sorted then.

Smiley face emoticon, Indeed. The latest rumor about Watson playing Anastasia Steele in the big screen take on E L James' popular novel trilogy sprouted up thanks to a Twitter account with possible ties to the hacker-activist group Anonymous. The Twitter handle posted documents stolen from German film studio Constanin that mentioned the 22-year-old actress as possible star. (Gossip Cop debunked that claim, noting that Watson is only on the producers' wish list.)

This isn't the first time Watson has been rumored for "Fifty Shades of Grey." The idea that she could star in the film first began circulating last summer, but Watson was quick to shoot the reports down.

"I haven't read the book, I haven't a read a script, nothing," Watson told EW.com in July of 2012. "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!"

For now, "Fifty Shades of Grey" remains without a leading actor, actress or director. Universal and Focus Features hope to release the film during the summer of 2014, however, so expect some movement on those fronts soon. For what it's worth, screenwriter Kelly Marcel said earlier this year that she felt the film would receive an NC-17 rating.
