UPDATE! This comes via Mugglenet:
According to the Entertainment Weekly article, Emma Watson personally assured fans, the allegations are false:
“I haven’t read the book, I haven’t a read a script, nothing. There are so many movies you become attached to when I’ve literally never even received a phone call. It was the same way with ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,’ I never even saw a script!”
She adds that even some friends and family asked her about ‘Grey’ since so many different items linking her to the film have popped up online. “I told them just because there are 60 articles on the Internet doesn’t mean it’s any less true than if there are three or four.
And a word to the wise for those who believe everything that they read about the actress: “The thing is I’m not going to go out there every time someone attaches me to a film to say no or release a statement.”
Harry Potter news is buzzing with a new hot topic. Emma Watson is rumored to be in ”preliminary talks” about her possible new role- Anastasia Steele in the big-screen adaption of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
According to NMA,
The Harry Potter actress is “in preliminary talks” about the movie and is said to be “one of the frontrunners” for the lead role of Anastasia Steele, reports the International Business Times… Since being published last year, Fifty Shades Of Grey has become notorious for its explicit sexual content and controversial portrayal of a relationship involving BDSM. The three novels by British author EL James have now sold more than 31 million copies worldwide.
