'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting Rumors: Selena Gomez Too Young to Play Anastasia Steele?
Fans are linking their favorite stars to play the crucial roles of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey.
The steamy "Fifty Shades" trilogy ("Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed") tells the story of 22-year-old recent college grad Anastasia Steele, who enters into a dominant/submissive sexual relationship with 27-year old sexy billionaire Christian Grey and both explore the world of BDSM (bondage, dominance, submission, masochism).

Former "Wizards of Waverly Place" actress Selena Gomez has been linked to the role numerous times.
Fashion.ie recently put the former Disney star on their list of Hollywood contenders who could play Anastasia Steele.
Gomez gets "grown and sexy" in her upcoming role in "Spring Breakers."
"People will be a little shocked, I think," Gomez recently told MTV News. "I'm a little nervous about it but honestly it's a right step for me, I'm really proud of it."
She will star with "Pretty Little Liars" star Ashley Benson and Disney alum Vanessa Hudgens.
However, the 20-year-old said that the role of Anastasia is a little too racy for her.
"I know I'm taking risks but I don't think I could do that," she told MTV News. "That would be a little too much for me."
Gomez became familiar with the hot and heavy storyline after being approached to star in Funny or Die's "Fifty Shades of Blue."
"When they told me about the skit, I didn't know what ['Fifty Shades of Grey'] was about, so I started to read it and was like, oh, this is spicy, I thought it was good, it was intriguing," she said. "The skit was really funny."
Being too young or too old, Gomez would never say yes to the part. So who's in the running to play the virginal Anastasia Steele?
In another new Anastasia poll that includes "Twilight" stars Ashley Greene and Kristen Stewart, and "Percy Jackson & the Olympians" star Alexandra Daddario, the latter is in first place with 89 votes. Greene is in second with 60 votes, and Bledel is in third with 19 votes. Up against Daddario and Greene, and it looks like Bledel is not in the front.
Recently, actress Angelina Jolie was linked to the role of Anastasia.
Jolie apparently has been reading the erotic novel.
Workers on the set of "Maleficent" persuaded the 37-year-old actress to pick up E.L. James' book and since then she has become interested in a part in the forthcoming motion picture.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper, ''Angelina kept hearing about the book while she was in the UK. All the girls on set were talking about it and how it's being made into a film.
''Angelina went out and bought herself a copy, thinking she'd love a part in the hot topic on everyone's lips at the moment. She knows the film is bound to be a huge hit.''
