Ian Somerhalder Causes a Panic by Suggesting He Might Not Audition For Fifty Shades of Grey
If you haven’t yet heard about the risqué trilogy Fifty Shades of Grey, well, all you really need to know that it’s pretty much the S&M version of Twilight. Fans of Vampire Diaries starIan Somerhalder (Damon Salvatore) have been in a tizzy sincehe joked to Ryan Seacrest that he’d love to try out for the role of Christian Grey.
That was back in April, but the buzz hasn’t died down — especially since Iantweeted to Bret Easton Ellis that he’d love to work on the project with him. But alas, it seems Mr. Somerhalder has changed his mind since then. Today he tried to calm the fervor surrounding the rumors onTwitter, saying, “OK ,this Christian Grey thing has gotten out of control. Know this, I’m not "desperate" to do anything except relax today. Be positive people. It’s what makes the world go round. Relax. Hating sucks. I probably won’t even get to audition for the role-don't worry. Smile:).”
It’s not clear who was hating on the idea, because tons of his followers responded that he must try out (or they’dtake a petition to Downing Street).
One fansaid, “I bloomin' wish you are Christian Grey,” while anotherinsisted “You are him!” Some Somerholics (their name, not ours) claimed they wouldn’t watch the movie without the handsome actor as the star.
At the end of the day, though, his legions of fans managed to get “We love you, Ian” trending on Twitter. Looks like they love him, Grey or nay.
