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

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!
