“Fifty Shades” Fans Really Need To Get Lives

Fifty Shades of Grey fans are the new Twilight fans in terms of  the “you guys are absolutely nuts” factor. Casting for the lead actors in the Fifty Shades film was just announced. Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam “won” the roles, and fans are downright pissed. You see, they wanted Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel. And because they’re totally f-cking delusional, they think that writing a petition and getting signatures will change this. Here’s their petition, straight from

Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE And I read the whole trilogy and I can assure that Matt is the perfect actor for this movie and Alexis too. So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING.

And here’s what they want you to (digitally) sign:

Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

[Your name]

That isn’t how Hollywood works, everyone. When I checked, the petition 12,908 had signatures. When I refreshed about 2 minutes later, it had 12,983. They even made their own poster, for emphasis (above). “SHITT GUYSSSSS I’M SO PROUD OF EVERYONE WHO IS HELP RIGHT NOW,” says the petition’s founder.

  • But imagine how great it would be if that WAS how it worked. Look at it like this: 50 Shades isn’t being made into a film because the director wants to make a piece of art, or because there’s an important message to get across to the masses. It’s being made into a film because an appallingly badly written book got a lot of fans and now everyone is cashing in. In which case, if it’s entirely for the fans and the contents of their wallets, wouldn’t it make more sense for them to have a say in who plays the characters? After all, if they choose the actors, they’re more likely to pay to watch the film, the film makes more money (which was the whole point to start with), everyone’s a winner.

    • I like your reasoning. I do think, however, that once the trailer is out everyone will want to see it anyway. I’m pretty sure this film will be one of the highest grossing (if not the highest grossing) films of next year. Here in the UK I’ve yet to see a house without this gem on the shelf. It’s tragic

  • Has anyone of these poor petitioners asked if Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel were interested to get their names attached to this piece of crap?
