Kristen Stewart Vs. Selena Gomez: Who Should Play Anastasia Steele?

Tue, May 22, 2012 3:43pm EDT by 168 Comments

Kristen & Selena were both recently spotted reading the erotic novel ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey,’ but which brunette beauty do you think should star in the movie version?

Once producers figure out how to turn the kinky sex scenes in E L James‘ novel 50 Shades of Grey into a film — and mind you, not an adult film — the next step will be casting the perfect leading lady to play the title role of Anastasia Steele.

While Kristen Stewart is the logical choice, since her character in Twilight was the inspiration behind the fan-fiction inspired book, perhaps a less-obvious option would work better. Maybe even another petite brunette like Selena Gomez!

In a recent Funny or Die video, 19-year-old Selena did a parody titled Fifty Shades of Blue, in which Carl, a groggy painter, stops by her house to paint a wall blue — and leaves Selena hot and bothered.

“Who is this gorgeous guy in front of me?” she asks in the video. “His eyes were starring deep into mine. I could feel my cheeks getting flushed. I hope he didn’t notice.” After pining over Carl for hours, Selena writes her phone number on the receipt, but doesn’t get the steamy ending she was hoping for. Who knew Justin Bieber‘s main squeeze had such a naughty side?!

Then again, if 22-year-old Kristen stars in the racy flick, it could be the perfect opportunity for her to reunite with her boyfriend Robert Pattinson on the silver screen.

“I’m dying to make another movie with Rob,” Kristen revealed in a recent interview. “I think that we’re a good team and I think whatever it is needs to be so ridiculously ambitious. I’d love to work with him again.” And you don’t get more ambitious than glorified erotica!

After weighing the pros and cons, I think that Kristen would be the better casting choice. She knows the character inside and out, and let’s face it, the role was written with her in mind! She’s the right age and has the perfect balance of introversion and awkwardness that Anastasia is known for.

Do YOU think Selena or Kristen should be cast in the kinky role? Sound off below!

Isn’t Selena Gomez a little too young to play that part. I wouldn’t want to pay to see her at least. It would really ruin the movie. I absolutely love the book. Kristen Stewart really fits the part of Anastasia Steele. Selena Gomez will make people feel a little perverted. Just an opinion. Thanks.

I envisioned Emma stone as Ana the whole time I was reading. I was even thinking Zach efron could play christian if they could age him a little bit! Screw kristian Stewart she can’t act worth crap!

KRISTEN and ROB should totally play the part! They would be so perfect for it. Selena Gomez is too girlish and I would never watch the films in a million years if she played the part. Besides kristen and Rob have good chemistry on camera and are more inclined to be believeable as Christian and ana!

Jennifer Lawrence, from the Hunger Games… I love Kristen Stewert, she would be excellent, but I am not sure how comfortable she is with being nude. she needs to hold on to her beliefs, and not do something she isnt comfortable doing..

Honestly, i was thinking more like Anne Hathaway but Kristen would work too. Selena doesnt want to do it so she wouldnt be expressive and interested

I love Nina but the role doesn’t fit to her. She must posses Anastasia’s physical traits and she doesn’t have those (but hotness yeah). Ashley Benson should be Anastasia.

Kristen needs this part – sorry selena but you’re just not pale enough! Kristen would definitely fit the role perfectly. I just hope to god they don’t cast pattinson to play christian haha. Emma watson would be great too never thought of that.

Hi.. None of the above can I picture playing those roles. Only a personal view having read all 3 books.. Right from Chapter 7 of book one I’ve pictured Jack Davenport as Christian Grey & Emma Watson (aka: Hermione Grainger as Anastasia Steele. I pictured Angelina JOLIE as Mrs Robinson – the list is endless.. But if the movie is anywhere near as good as the books-it’ll be awesome! Good Luck.. Why I say that i have no idea-you won’t need it! x

I’ve heard this is all about sex and or sexuallity (tho people try to add or tie a story to it). If Selena is up for it, then Selena will do the role amazing. But I really dont think the whole Sex thing is something she would go for. Kristen, no. She has no character, no feelings, no emotions. Maybe one of the girls from PrettyLittleLiars, or Gossip Girl. Emma Watson? Emma Roberts? They would do fine, too.
