According to Perez Hilton, 50 Shades of Grey author E.L. James has made it clear that she doesn’t want Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson cast in the movie version of her racy novel, and R. Patz is apparently none too happy with the blatant snub!
Rob reportedly told a source, “I think the author has written me out of it. I saw some interview earlier and they went, ‘Oh, it could never be him.’ And I’m like ,’Hey, I’m going to make you pay for that.’”
Burn! Rob totally just put E.L. James in her place.
We gotta admit though, we’re a bit surprised that E.L. is so quick to take Rob off the list of actors who could play Christian Grey, Not only is Rob one of the biggest stars in Hollywood right now, but the whole 50 Shades series began as Twilight fan-fiction!
No offense to the other actors rumored to be up for the role of Christian Grey (we’re looking at you, Jake Gyllenhaal) but we think Rob could bring an interesting energy to the part.
Do you think Rob should play Christian? Sound off below!
