E.L. James spoke to women at a conference in Westchester, New York May 11 about her inspiration for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ the upcoming film adaptation and the research behind the raunchy S&M sex scenes!
The trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey has taken America by storm and HollywoodLife.com‘s Bonnie Fuller had the opportunity to see the author, E.L. James, speak about the popular series — which was originally Twilight fan fiction and is now being turned into a movie.
“I’m very concerned about how it will translate onto screen,” E.L. said at the conference, which was held by Lyss Stern, founder of the Luxury Lifestyle Brand DivaMoms.com at the Willow Ridge Country Club. “They don’t have to do full on f**kery. They can be done with great taste…they will be fun!”
Even though the film will be tasteful, it wouldn’t be complete without some of the story’s controversial S&M scenes, which the author tried to make as realistic as possible.
“I talked to a couple people into S&M to do research on the book,” she said. “I also talked to an online guy, who was a submissive.”
Of course, E.L. was pushed by fans about writing a fourth book (and even a prequel to the series) — and despite being happy with where she left her characters, Anastasia and Christian, she said “never say never.”
