Although most of the casting buzz has surrounded BDSM-loving leading man, Christian Grey, a handful of names were thrown around for his wide-eyed lady love, Anastasia Steele, too.
While potential candidates Emma Watson and Elizabeth Olsen have both voiced their opinions about the trilogy, the newest name in the pot — as first suggested by The Stir — came out of nowhere. But let’s be honest: Mila Kunis definitely has what it takes in the sex appeal department.
However, Mila, who was recently named the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire magazine, doesn’t exactly have an innocent air to her. There’s no doubt that she would tackle Ana’s sexual awakening like a pro, but could she play the naive virgin side too?
Hey, maybe they can just hire Natalie Portman for the first half of the film — aka the White Swan to Mila’s Black Swan — and splice it together in post-production. With Terra Nova’s Kelly Marcel penning the script, we’re sure the sci-fi elements would fit in seamlessly.
What do you think of Mila as Anastasia Steele? Hit or miss? Weigh in below!
