Fifty Shades of Grey Casting: Rumer Willis For Anastasia?
It’s been a while since we’ve had any new casting rumors come out about who should play Anastasia or Christian in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.
Usually we just talk about the same group of names over and over. But last week, a few paparazzi shots of Rumer Willis were posted on the Daily Mail's site, launching instant speculation that maybe she wants to be considered for Anastasia. This is what happens when there’s nothing else to talk about! (Save us, Hollywood! Cast someone already.)
The photos (check them out in the gallery below) show bikini-clad Rumer in Miami, getting kissy face with her boyfriend Jayson Blair, while also taking time to read Fifty Shades Freed — the third book in the series. Gather Entertainment went from there, speculating on whether Rumer could pull off the role of Ana.
She does have famous parents (Bruce Willis and Demi Moore) but also a huge amount of competition from more experienced (and popular) actresses. Examiner picked up the Rumer rumor, saying the 24-year-old actress has been considered for the role of Ana. She was just reading the book! Yeah, the paparazzi got lots of shots of her — and maybe she was in on it, trying to do some photo association: Me + Fifty Shades = Consider Me for Ana. But she may have just been on vacation.
Fifty Shades could end up casting an “unknown” actress like Rumer, who is still best known for her famous parents. But Examiner referenced polls from Entertainment Weekly and Latinos Post that reportedly had actresses Alexis Bledel and Twilight's Ashley Greene higher on Ana casting lists, although the Latinos site also listed The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev high on the list. And don’t forget Pretty Little Liars'Lucy Hale!
