The Fifty Shades of Grey movie casting decision seems to have created some interesting by-products. It seems that Dakota Johnson who is, for some bizarre reason, the newly chosen Anastasia Steele, has been hanging out with filthy rich FSOG authoress, E.L.James. Is James helping her new BFF prepare for her arduous new role? Could be.
On September 8, E.L. James posted a twitpic of the two new BFFs having a ball in Manhattan. According to Hollywood Life, the newly selected Anastasia Steele spent some quality time in N.Y.C. "bonding with E.L. and 50 Shades' producer Dana Brunetti." As you can see by clicking here, the three looked happy to be in each other's company. Wonder if they were swapping BDSM stories. Possibly. Perhaps James was giving Johnson a crash course in the in and outs of kinky sex. La James' caption accompanying the photo read:
"The beautiful, talented, funny as feck, Dakota Johnson."
Funny as feck? Right. Whatever.
While Johnson may indeed be "talented and funny as feck" not to mention a recipient of lucky sperm being the daughter of famous Hollywood parents Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, she is not beautiful. Not by Hollywood standards anyway. (Cleveland, yes. Hollywood, no.) And sadly no amount of hype, publicity, or family connections will make her so. She is at best a cute young early twenty-something woman. Just as Charlie Hunnam, the equally inexplicable choice for Christian Grey is a borderline averagely good-looking early thirty-something man. The casting of these two ordinary-looking people will always be a mystery beyond all understanding.
Oh well, much like the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, the die is cast. Good luck to everyone involved.
