After announcing that she wants to break out of the ‘good girl’ mold, Selena Gomez found a way to make it a reality. Not only did she just wrap up filming Spring Breakers – where her character drinks, smokes and steals — she also starred in a Funny or Die video parodying Fifty Shades of Grey. You know, that erotic novel by E.L. James that everyone can’t stop talking about. Except, instead of falling for a rich, hunky billionaire, Selena sets her eyes on a less-than-attractive maintenance man.
Watch Fifty Shades of Blue below. And no worries, there’s nothing actually inappropriate in the video…
Since Fifty Shades is based on Twilight fan fiction, Kristen’s been asked about the book in several interviews. Most recently, during a segment entitled “Erotica” on MTV After Hours with Josh Horowitz along with her Snow White and the Huntsman castmates.
As for Nina and Ian, Nina herself explains, “I don’t know if that’s a good idea [for both of us]. I think it’s best for any of the actors on The Vampire Diaries to kind of do their own things… and create new characters. And as much as you try when you shoot a movie, if it’s two of the same people, the fans will always see you as… they’ll see me as Elena and they’ll see him as Damon if we do a film together.”
She did, however, go on to say, “I think it would be better [if] either he should get it or I should get it. I know that apparently he’s really great for the role, so I hope that he gets it.”
Have you read the… suggestive text? Do you think Ian Somerhalder would be good for the role? Or someone more like Robert Pattinson? And what about the female lead?
