Mila Kunis Frontrunner To Play Ana Steele In 50 Shades Of Grey?!

Another day, another report of 50 Shades of Grey! The latest news? Mila Kunis is the ‘front runner’ to play the lead female, Anastasia “Ana” Steele.

Speculation STILL continues over who will take on the role of Ana and Christian Grey, though the rumour-mill has been in overdrive since Universal confirmed that they had bought film rights to the bestselling trilogy back in July.

Vampire Diaries Ian Somerhalder, Jake Gyllenhaal and Magic Mike stars Channing Tatum and Alex Pettyfer have all been rumoured to take on the infamous role of Christian, whilst Gilmore Girls actress Alexis Bledel and Shailene Woodley from The Descendants are said to be in the running to play Ana. Ryan Gosling and Emma Watson have both denied involvement. And it would appear Mila is now the clear favourite.

We can see why. Stunning Mila has just been voted Sexiest Woman in the World by Esquire magazine, and she’s proved her acting cred too, after gaining critical praise in Oscar-winning Black Swan in 2010. She also starred in comedies Ted this year and Friends with Benefits last year.

Earlier this week we reported that British scribe Kelly Marcel was confirmed to pen the screenplay for 50 Shades, whilst Michael De Luca is on board to produce. Who will direct is still anyone’s guess.

Samantha Hopkins (Thu Oct 11 15:00:51 BST 2012): Even though i like mila kunis i don't think she will be right for the role. In my opinion I think ana should be played by an unknown actress, as i don't think there are many women in hollywood who i could picture playing ana's role :-/ the film will still be a success anyway even without famous faces in it, hence the actors from twilight who were unknown before and the films were even bigger than the books.
Tishia Kichenbrand (Thu Oct 11 15:23:24 BST 2012): Would love to see alexis be ana
Carol Klakring-Sears (Thu Oct 11 16:42:23 BST 2012): Alexis Bledel all the way for Ana!
Carol Klakring-Sears (Thu Oct 11 16:46:17 BST 2012): Mila Kunis, ugg! No way!
Sue Kirkham (Thu Oct 11 22:12:01 BST 2012): shes not Anastasia! Henry Cavill IS Christian Grey.
Liudmila Stoylova (Fri Oct 12 07:10:29 BST 2012): Are you crazy? Mila Kunis is not suitable for. character Anastasia. Mila has a nose for potatoes, it's terrible. Only Alexis Bledel, and alone. Alexis is ideal! When I read the book, I imagined it was a type girl (innocent girl with big blue eyes).
Susanna Angela Sakri (Thu Oct 18 04:54:29 BST 2012): ABSOOOLUTELLLLYYYY NAYYYYYYYYYY! NOOOOoooooooooooo FREAAAKINNNNgggggggggggggggggg WAYYYY! SHE'S WAYYY Tooo sultry, too knowing! NOT at all like Ana Steele! ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ANA STEELE with just the right amount of innocence and awkwardness.... 50 SHADES IS NOT JUST ABOUT SEX! Its also a SWEEPING LOVE STORY! it needs 3 DIMENSIONAL ACTOR(TRESS) - NOT ALL ABOUT THE LOOKS ALONE that can breathe/ bring the CHARACTERS TO LIFE! IF SHE'S ACTING.. WE AIn't WATCHING IT! X(((... PERIOD!
Allison Lucier (Tue Oct 30 18:40:39 GMT 2012): This is just ALL, ALL wrong.
Chrissy Holwerda (Wed Dec 05 01:08:16 GMT 2012): Mila's voice it too annoying and abrasive for soft spoken Ana. Even if she subdued her already type cast outgoing character, all I would think of is "Family Guy". I suggest a young and budding starlet to embrace this role. The innocence from an unknownwould be better well received.
Bene Cal (Thu Jan 10 16:39:32 GMT 2013): Please let it be Emma Watson!
50 Shades of Grey Fans (Sun Mar 03 09:03:51 GMT 2013): Just take a look at the odds and the favourite to play Ana Steele is Alexis Bledel the second favourite Mila Kunis. Either way both could do the job. EL JAMES may have some input.
Joseph L Oliveri II (Sun Mar 10 14:44:52 GMT 2013): ARE U SERIOUS I SO TOTALLY AGREE WITH HER BEING PICKED I ALSOHAVE FOLLOWED GILMORE GIRLS MORE FORMOM THAN ALEXIS WHO ALWAYS SHOWED ME AS STIFF AND UNATURAL IN HER DISAPOINTING TRAVELING PANTS U R RIGHT SHE IS NOT ALL SEXY ANN MILA DOES NOT KNOW HOW NOT TO BE.

Susanna Angela Sakri (Sun Mar 10 15:09:58 GMT 2013): ABSOLUTELLLYY NO WAYYYY! ONCE AGAIN for those who wish to see Mila as Ana Steele... obviously u're more focused on the movie being sexy, instead of FOCUSING ON THE ESSENCE of the STORY! IF MANYY AGGREEE SHE's NOT SUITED FOR THE ROLE... then ITS THE TRUTH! xP
Christian Wabenga (Sun Apr 07 03:10:47 BST 2013): Alexis Bledel Of course the only one !!and About christian I will say Henry cavill
