'50 Shades' of Innocent Sweetheart Eyes: Alexis Bledel vs Emilia Clarke vs Amanda Seyfried [PHOTOS]
"Fifty Shades of Grey," the movie adaptation of E.L. James' erotic series has yet to cast Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. James herself has dished that the actor she has in mind for the Grey role is not someone whom people would think. That means Matt Bomer and Ian Somerhalder were out, if things were entirely up to James. What about Anastasia? For this feature, we look into the top contenders' sweetheart eyes for answers.
Alexis Bledel, Emilia Clarke, and Amanda Seyfried are three of the actresses who often led online polls for the 50 Shades Steele role.
Anastasia Steele, a graduating college and a virgin at the time the series kicks off, is beautiful and sexy in an enigmatic way. Unlike her best friend Kate Cavanagh, Ana is not always the center of male attraction. But that's because she's always in a "make-under" instead of a makeover mode. Nonetheless, her beauty catches on to a number of admirers. And Christian Grey. Which actress best shows the eyes for such a character?
Alexis Bledel has lovely eyes that seem to know no evil, no naughtiness in bed. The idea that innocent girls can be very deceiving works great in her vibe. At 31, she may be too old to play the Steele role. But her genes seem to have prepared her for it, anyway.
Emilia Clarke, 26, has established herself as dragon momma Daenerys Targaryen in the hit series "Game of Thrones." As Daenerys, Emilia's eyes have dynamically developed from fearful and clueless, to feisty and vengeful. But give her Ana's role and she can pull it off with just one look, and perhaps a lip bite.
Amanda Seyfried, 27, is one of those Hollywood women who always look gorgeous and stunning on red carpet events. Seyfried's vibrant eyes spell control, sex, and power. Her vibe is more in line with Kate Cavanagh, but the role could be too small for her. Fans of "Crossfire" series heroine Eva Trammel make a better point in dream casting her for the role. (Crossfire is the erotic fiction series by author Sylvia Day.)
Who wins "Best Innocent Anastasia Steele Sweetheart Eyes" among the three actresses? Alexis Bledel, no doubt. Which actress are you pegging for the role of Ana?
