The website revealed that the sketch looks "un-Kristen Stewart-y;" James based Ana's character on Bella Swan from Stephanie Meyer's "The Twilight Saga."
Hollywood.com listed six beautiful actresses that resemble the sketch. "Game of Thrones" Emilia Clarke, "Ted" star Mila Kunis, supermodel Lara Stone, "Gossip Girl" star Leighton Meester, pop singer Selena Gomez, and "Transformers" star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are listed.
The Christian Grey sketch, which was put together by UCLan's School of psychology lecturer Dr. Faye Skelton using EVOFit system, a software system that helps victims and witnesses of crime generate an image of a criminal's face, got mixed reviews. Some said the sketch didn't look anything like the sexy Christian fans imagine in the movie.
Perez Hilton was one of them that didn't approve the photo on his website. He also didn't like the one for Ana.
"Like the last one, it's mostly just awkward and ugly!" Perez Hilton said on his blog.
"Fifty Shades of Grey" 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 Christian's world of BDSM (bondage, dominance, submission, masochism).
People Magazine described Ana as "'a pale, brown-haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face.' She's clumsy and awkward but very beautiful - though she clearly doesn't see that herself. Of course, Christian does, and he's not shy about complimenting her 'beautiful skin, pale and flawless.'" She also has a slim figure, which he's not shy about appreciating.
Anastasia is a 21-year-old recent college graduate. She's innocent and unsuspecting about Christian's intentions, but she quickly opens her mind to the unusual sexual tastes of Christian, who is loves the world of S&M, where he is the dominator.
Clarke is definitely a fan favorite to play Anastasia Steele. Based on a Books & Review poll, Clarke is in second place, while "Gilmore Girls" star Alexis Bledel is in first. Hollywood.com described Clarke as "spot-on" for the look of Ana.
TheStir.CafeMom.com said, "The 25-year-old actress, who's a natural brunette, definitely has the right look. She's both innocent and sweet yet has the potential to be extremely badass. And speaking of asses, she has absolutely no problem with nudity, as she had multiple sex scenes with her on-screen husband. Needless to say, her body is smokin'!"
Hollywood.com also calls Lara Stone's resemblance "striking" to the sketch.
Another fan favorite is "Percy Jackson & the Olympians" star Alexandra Daddario. The 26-year-old actress has blue eyes similar to Anastasia, and she's also beautiful.
Emma Watson, 22, was reportedly in the front-running to play Anastasia Steele, which People Magazine said was an "obvious choice" for Ana. She has played the awkward, doesn't-know-she's-gorgeous role before. Celebs.gather.com said Watson is perfect for the role.
