Just because you two have been a phenomenal success as Bella and Edward in the ‘Twilight’ series doesn’t mean that you should shy away from co-starring in another to-be-made-for-the-big-screen film trilogy!
Now, I know you two probably don’t think you should be linking your careers together so much. You worry you’ll be typecast into “couple” films, and that you will have a hard time building separate careers. Your managers and agents are probably telling you the same thing.
But who says that current conventional wisdom is correct? When a man and a woman have the gift of onscreen chemistry, they have to recognize that it’s a rare gift and they should revel in it – not run away from it. How many other actors and actresses can say, they’ve connected intensely and believably in four hit movies and are heading for a fifth with Breaking Dawn Part 2? I can’t think of ANY today!
To find real live Hollywood couples with onscreen chemistry that provided hit after hit, you have to all the way back to the legendary Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy whose long-term (unmarried) love produced huge hits from 1942 to 1967 in films like Woman of the Year, Adam’s Rib, Pat and Mike, and Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.
Then there were the incomparable Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart, who met on the set of To Have and Have Not and subsequently married and made three more hits.
Rob and Kristen – you can become onscreen romantic legends too and Fifty Shades of Grey would be the perfect and modern vehicle.
It’s perfect for your indie personas. It’s edgy to say the least. In fact, it’s so exotic a book, it borders on porn. And yes, it was absolutely inspired by the Twilight book series but of course taken to a whole new level and minus, vampires, and instead with BDSM, as the obsession.
The fact that it’s inspired by Twilight shouldn’t be a negative for you, Rob and Kristen. Again – you need to buck conventional “industry” wisdom and yes, stick with your Twilight associates. It’s a huge plus with who REALLY matters – your audience. They would die to see you, Rob and Kristen, playing billionaire sexual fetishist, Christian Grey and virgin, recent college grad, Anastasia Steele.
In between all the erotic bondage and control, in Fifty Shades of Grey, there’s a story of intense romance and deepening love. Like Twilight, it’s also at heart a story about dangerous forbidden love. And that’s something audiences yearn for.
So embrace the opportunity to become a legendary and hit-producing acting couple – you’ll still have highly successful solo careers and surprise your fans by saying yes to the opportunity to star in the upcoming film(s) Fifty Shades of Grey!
