‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ to Cast Mila Kunis as Anastasia Steele? The Challenge is…
"Fifty Shades of Grey" producers might soon ask Ashton Kutcher's girlfriend Mila Kunis to star as Anastasia Steele. Yay or nay?
Twenty-nine-year-old Kunis could pull off the look of a young woman, for sure. She can act out enigma, and she has a youthful air about her. Having Esquire magazine label her as the "Sexiest Woman Alive" is also a great thing for Kunis. However, the "Friends with Benefits" actress might face a serious challenge in portraying the role of a naïve innocent virgin in her early 20s. Nothing in the way Kunis carries herself spell "gullible" and "submissive." But if she is a great actress, what could be impossible?
Kunis' dark role in "Black Swan" certainly does not show a trace of Anastasia Steele. In fact, if she were much older, Kunis could very well play the role of Mrs Robinson. Avid fans of the EL James trilogy would know this particular character is particularly primal sexy.
Neither Kunis nor his rep has said anything about getting the "Fifty Shades" job. Setting aside all doubt to Kunis' acting skills, she could still less than convincing as Anastasia Steele. If the producers go ahead with casting Kunis, a mix of reactions will surely be in order.
