Ryan Gosling misreported as lead actor in Fifty Shades film, says E L James
Washington: EL James has weighed in on Ryan Gosling being cast as the lead male role in the upcoming film adaption of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ saying “as usual, it’s all been misreported.”
According to reports, the author’s husband Niall Leonard supports the idea of the ‘Drive’ star playing the novel’s protagonist Christian Grey in the flick.
“No, my husband has not spilled the beans,” People magazine quoted her, as saying on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show.
“What happened is that his local paper ... reported on my husband being the inspiration for Christian Grey.
“Underneath it, they put a picture of Ryan Gosling as well. So, that’s how that [rumor] came about,” she said.
James, meanwhile, has said that she may or may not have someone in mind for the steamy role, but declined to reveal any names.
“[It’s] far too early in the process,” she added.
