Christian Grey & Anastasia Steele Roles In Fifty Shades Of Grey Movie Still Being Decided

Things are hotting up in the wait to hear who will play the main characters in Fifty Shades of Grey, but now Ryan Gosling is reportedly the favourite to play the lead role of Christian Grey in the film adaptation.

British newspaper The Sun has reported that Ryan Gosling has been hotly tipped to play S&M enthusiast Christian Grey in the the Fifty Shades of Grey movie adaptation, overtaking Ian Somerhalder as the favourite.

Since the rights to EL James’ bestseller were snapped up by Universal Pictures and Focus films, the rumour mill has been in overdrive with speculation as to who could play kinky billionaire Christian Grey and his lover, the shy and awkward college graduate Anastasia Steele.

Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder and Star Trek's Chris Pine have both shown an interest in the role, along with The Tudors’ star Henry Cavill. But it’s the Drive and Crazy Stupid Love actor Ryan Gosling who is apparently the man to beat.

As for the role of Christian’s love interest, Anastasia Steel, Kristen Stewart, Emma Roberts, Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale, and Game of Thrones beauty Emilia Clarke have all been linked to the role.

Who do you think should play the lead characters?

‘Drive’ sequel author James Sallis reveals: ‘Movie adaptation in the pipeline’

Drive may soon be getting a sequel, according to the author of the original 2005 novel, James Sallis. James spoke to British newspaper The Independent to discuss the hardback release of Driven, a direct sequel to Drive, and claimed that a movie version is “in the pipeline”.

He also revealed that studio executives “love the book” and that while he was writing the book it was “difficult not to visualise Ryan Gosling playing the role”.

James’ 2005 book was adapted to the big screen last year by Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn, and received widespread critical acclaim, including for Ryan Gosling, who was sensational in the lead role as the unnamed stuntman. Drive also starred Carey Mulligan as Ryan’s love interest.

The sequel, Driven, features Ryan’s character engaged to be married and attempting to leave his violent past behind. However, when his fiancée is suddenly attacked and murdered, the Driver is forced to seek vengeance.

Ryan and Winding Refn are not currently confirmed to be working on the sequel, but are collaborating on new crime thriller Only God Forgives, due for release in early 2013. Ryan is currently dating actress Eva Medes.

Tulisa Contostavlos has been crowned the sexiest female of 2012, but what about the males? We take a look at the top ten sexiest male celebrities of 2012.

At number 10, and always appearing is the ‘best looking’ lists, is our favourite pirate, Johnny Depp. The Dark Shadows actor has recently been forced to deny rumours of a split from his partner of fourteen years, Vanessa Paradiso. We imagine Johnny wouldn’t have much trouble finding someone to take his mind of his heartache if the rumours do happen to be true.

In at number 9 is Blake Lively's man, Ryan Reynolds. His hadsome dark looks have earned him tons of admirers. However, Ryan and Blake have apparently been causing quite a stir in their new neighbourhood with their ‘diva’ attitudes.

Zac Efron takes the number 8 spot, and is the first single on the list. Zac recently spoke about his sex symbol status, admitting he doesn’t feel like a heartthrob. “I’m far from a heartthrob,” said the 24-year-old. “That word kind of follows you around, but I don’t know how exactly one earns it.”

Number 7 on the list is The Day After Tomorrow actor Jake Gylllenhaal. Jake has previously dated Taylor Swift and Reese Witherspoon, and it’s easy to see what they saw in the hunky actor.

Number 6 on the list is long standing sex symbol David Beckham. David is married to fashion designer Victoria Beckham, and together the pair have four children.

The Avengers actor Chris Hemsworth comes in at number 5. With his toned physique and surfer looks, Chris has earned himself plenty of admirers. However, Chris is happily married to Spanish actress Elsa Pataky, and the couple have a baby on the way.

One Direction heartthrob Harry Styles is a new entry on such lists at number 4. The singer has a huge following of girl fans who adore his curly hair and handsome looks. And if you were hoping to be in with a chance with Harry, the trick is to wear black underwear. The teenager recently revealed: “I like my girlfriends to wear black lingerie.”

25-year-old Twilight star, Robert Pattinson, is number 3 on the list. The handsome Brit actor recently revealed that playing a womanising banker in the David Cronenberg-directed picture had given him a confidence boost: “Filming Cosmopolis with David changed something in me. It gave me balls,” he explained to Premiere magazine. “I have five projects lined up right now that follow the path that movie opened for me. Before, I spent my time doubting myself. As soon as I read a script I liked, I was working myself up, asking myself if I was good enough. Now, I tell myself, ‘F**k it! If they want to hire you, go!’”

Blue eyed The Hangover star Bradley Cooper is in at number 2. Bradley previously dated Bridget Jones’s Diary actress Renee Zellweger, and has also been linked to Jennifer Lopez.

And finally, number one on the list is Drive actor Ryan Gosling. The handsome hunk is currently dating the gorgeous Eva Mendes, who has recently spoken out about the actor, calling him ‘precious.’

Eva Mendes talks about Ryan Gosling relationship: ‘That’s the most precious thing to me’

Glamouress actress Eva Mendes recently sat down with USA Today to talk about why she has chosen to stay out of the spotlight in the past year.

“I’ve just laid low,” she told USA Today’s Andrea Mandell. “I feel like if you don’t have a reason to be out there, why would you want to be? It’s certainly part of the job, but unless I have some kind of tie to an event, whether it’s promoting a movie I’m in or a product I’m endorsing or a friend that’s involved, I’d rather be home.”

Her new movie, Girl in Progress, in which she plays Grace, a sexy, irresponsible single mother, opens Friday, but aside from the movie, Eva was asked about her blossoming romance with boyfriend Ryan Gosling. However, he is the one topic the chatty actress regards as off-limits: “I’m feeling a little insecure because I can’t help but be super conscious of what I’m saying because I’m so protective,” she said, when asked about him. “That’s the most precious thing to me. And I’m so protective and I just felt my guard go up.”

But she was willing to discuss her fashion rules around the house. “I don’t believe in sweats,” she said. “I really don’t! My house attire is housedresses. I’m not a jeans girl.” We’re sure Ryan doesn’t mind!

American actress Emma Stone appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, where show was questioned about her onscreen kissing conquests. Ellen tried to get Emma to reveal who was a better kisser between her real life boyfriend Andrew Garfield and Hollywood hunk Ryan Gosling.

Stone replied “Apples and oranges, you know.” Ellen then probed further by trying to get Emma to reveal who was the better of the two during the love scenes. However, Stone was not going to give in that easily and responded, “I love all fruit.” Emma Stone recently moved in with Andrew Garfield in New York.
 
A source told Life & Style, “They have a really nice apartment. They also hired an interior designer to transform the space. They wanted a subtle, understated look that was comfortable. They’re in a good place. Both of them are very nice people, very down-to-earth and caring. They’re just two cool people.”
 
Emma Stone has previously worked with Ryan Gosling on the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love and appears alongside him again in the movie The Gangster Squad. Meanwhile, Emma stars alongside her boyfriend Andrew Garfield in The Amazing Spider-Man, which is released on July 3.
Who should play Batman after The Dark Knight Rises?
Who should play Batman after The Dark Knight Rises?

The Dark Knight Rises will mark the end of the Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy and well also see Christian Bale stepping down as the caped crusader. It has already been confirmed that the Batman franchise will once again get a reboot, so who should play Batman?

Well there are a few key points to take into consideration when trying to cast Batman for the big screen. As fans of Batman will know, Bruce Wayne is a tall, attractive gentleman who has a perfect jaw line and also looks very good in a suit.
 
Add to that the fact that he also has to have a rather muscular physique and you have already managed to rule out a number of Hollywood’s leading men. So who does that really leave? Well one name that we have heard mentioned is Ryan Gosling, who could easily portray the suave, rich, playboy and also has the frame of a man who can take care of himself in a punch up.
 
Then there is Robert Pattinson, who many would be quick to dismiss. However, Robert is a very capable actor and with the right script and the right director, he could well make a good Bruce Wayne and in turn a good Batman. Robert Pattinson as Batman would also draw in the Twilight crowd, giving Batman a new fan base. He would have to bulk up a bit though.

Ryan Gosling car obsession almost got him killed
Ryan Gosling car obsession almost got him killed

Drive actor Ryan Gosling has revealed how he has always been obsessed with cars from a very young age and he would do anything just to get close to the cars. Ryan admitted that one day, when he was a young boy, he was so eager to get close to the cars, that he stood in the middle of the road and tried to get hit by them.

Gosling explained, “I also stood in the middle of the street trying to get hit by cars, not because I wanted to die but I wanted to be where the cars were. I didn’t have any friends: not in a sad, ‘poor me’ way. I didn’t want any. I liked being alone. When I first saw Rambo, that movie put a kind of spell on me and I actually thought I WAS Rambo. So much so, that one day, I took a bunch of steak knives to school and threw them around at recess time because I thought we were in the movie.”
 
He added, “I’m not proud of this but I did learn a lesson - I was suspended from school.” Ryan Gosling is currently in the process of filming his latest movie Only God Forgives, with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn. Only God Forgives also stars Kristin Scott Thomas and is expected to be released later this year.
Eva Mendes discusses her fears
Eva Mendes discusses her fears

Hollywood actress Eva Mendes has revealed how she was bullied when she was a young girl and believes that one of the key reasons for it was, because she showed the bullies too much fear. Eva claims that now, when she is afraid of something, she does not show her fear so that nobody can then pounce on it.

Mendes explained, “I was a gawky, skinny girl with big teeth and that made me an easy target. I had two bullies and they tortured me right through junior high. I could never understand why. Only later I realised I was perhaps showing them my fear and that is what they were pouncing on. I try not to show my fear now.”
 
She added, “I remember the school athletics coach telling me when running a race never to look back. He said, ‘The race could be lost in that second.’ So I try to live by not looking back. It does not make for much reflection or relaxation — I haven’t taken a holiday in years. I am very driven and probably a bit intense.”
 
Eva continued, “I have regular therapy and do not mind admitting that. There is nothing like walking into a room and talking to someone who has no emotional investment in your life. I love it. I go once a week and, if not, then every two weeks. And if I am away, I phone in. It is so necessary, especially in my business.” Eva Mendes, who is currently dating Drive actor Ryan Gosling, recently praised her mother for doing such a good job in bringing her up.
Ryan Gosling reveals his approach to picking up women
Ryan Gosling reveals his approach to picking up women

Drive actor Ryan Gosling is considered one of the hottest men in Hollywood at the moment but he has revealed that he was not a natural when it came to picking up the ladies. Ryan admits that he had a lot of help from men’s magazines, which he would use as a dead set guideline on the things to do and say to attract the opposite sex.

Gosling explained, “I just tried to follow all the rules that men’s magazines give you, like all the ways you’re supposed to dress, all the exercises you’re supposed to do, and all the things you’re supposed to say. Just follow the letter of the law. I read that book, The Game. I like to call it The Lame. Or that TV show, The Pick Up Artist. I watched that.”
 
He added, “I don’t know whether seduction can be taught or not. But these gentlemen seem to think that they have something to say, and they have devotees.” Whatever it was that Ryan Gosling did, it certainly seems to be working, as he has dated a number of stunning women over the years and is currently dating the gorgeous actress Eva Mendes.
Ryan Gosling reminisces over The Mickey Mouse Club days
Ryan Gosling reminisces over The Mickey Mouse Club days

Before becoming a Hollywood heartthrob, Drive actor Ryan Gosling was a member of the famous Mickey Mouse Club, which has produced such stars as Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears. However, Ryan admits that he was nowhere near as talented as most of the other kids and would after be cut out of shots.

Gosling explained, “In my age bracket there were seven kids, three of whom were Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, and Justin Timberlake. Filming was kind of depressing because when I got there, they realised that I wasn’t really up to stuff in comparison with what some of the other kids were able to do.”
 
He added, “I remember they put four of us in a dance routine, but I was so off. I was on the end, so they just pushed the shot in closer on the other three guys to frame me out. I would just come in at the beginning of the show and then come back at the end. I’d have a sketch here or there, but I didn’t end up working that much, which was disheartening.” Ryan Gosling recently revealed the key to picking good film roles.

Drive actor Ryan Gosling has revealed how he goes about picking the roles that he believes are perfect for him. Ryan claims that finding the right script is very much like hearing a song for the first time and feeling a need to dance to it. Ryan also admitted that he sometimes becomes frustrated with actors and actresses who complain about the downside of fame.

Gosling explained, “Picking roles is sort of like when a song comes on and you’ve got to dance. You don’t really know why you have to dance, you’ve just got to do it. So, it’s a hard thing to explain. That’s always changing. I feel very lucky. Acting is like living many lives in one. You get more than just one. There’s instant access to everything. As with all drugs there’s a dark side, but when actors talk about the downside of fame I roll my eyes.
 
He added, “You say you want something, it appears. The people in movies become the people you know. Magical things happen.” Ryan Gosling is currently in Thailand where he is filming for his latest movie Only God Forgives, which sees him once again team up with Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn. Only God Forgives is currently without a release date but it is expected that it will be released later this year.
Eva Mendes talks sex scenes and nudity
Eva Mendes talks sex scenes and nudity

Hollywood actress Eva Mendes has revealed how she was fine with having to do a bit of full nudity in her first big movie Training Day but when it came to the sex scene for the movie We Own The Night in 2007, she was a little less comfortable. Eva admitted that she was worried what her movie would think of her doing a sex scene for the world to see.

Mendes explained, “I work with what I have. In my first big film, Training Day, I did full nudity. It was fine, because it was not a love scene. It was different with the film We Own The Night with Joaquin Phoenix in 2007 because in the opening scene he is seen kissing my bare breast and putting his hand down my pants. I was like ‘Oh, my God, I’m not sure whether I can do this.’ I told the director: ‘There’s a good little Catholic girl still inside me.’ He said, ‘Tell her to go home.’ So they made me a strong vodka orange juice and I got on with it.”
 
She added, “I did think ‘If I am going to take my mom, I will miss the opening ten minutes of this film.’ But, of course, she was fine about it as she has been with all my movies. She probably realised what was going on in my head more than I did. I now love my curves. When I first had them, though, I wondered what was going on. Men were suddenly looking at me and I didn’t know why. It was confusing.” Eva Mendes is set to appear alongside her boyfriend Ryan Gosling in the movie The Place Beyond the Pines, which is expected to be released this year.
