The Harry Potter starlet took to Twitter to address the rumors of her supposed casting in the film adaptation of sex-driven novel by E.L. James, which has sold over 65 million copies nationwide.
“Who here actually thinks I would do 50 Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life,” Watson posted. “Good. Well that’s sorted then.”
Rumors hit the ‘net Friday (March 15) that the 22-year-old actress would take the starring role as Anastasia Steele, the leading lady opposite Christian Grey who is introduced to an “alternative lifestyle.” An online hacker collective Anonymous broke into the internal server of German studio Constantin Film to release the bogus info.
A source tells E! News that casting has not begun.
