" It has been long rumored that Mila Kunis is wanted for Anastasia Steele in Focus Features' upcoming adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey. But is the actress even interested in the coveted role?
Next seen in Oz: The Great and Powerful as the witch Theodora, Kunis appeared on Extra to promote the movie, and was asked directly about taking on the part of Anastasia. Does she want to do it? Her immediate response was quick.
The wishy-washy actress then quickly recants this statement.
"I'm not disinterested..."
It isn't clear if Mila Kunis has even been offered the part. Universal and Focus Features are in the midst of putting the adaptation together. In the book, Anastasia Steele is a 22 years-old college student, while the actress is 30 and clearly long out of school. The story revolves around the erotic relationship between a wealthy business magnate named Christian Grey and Steele, who explores her sexuality for the first time. It seems clear that Mila Kunis isn't really age appropriate for this coveted role, and it will most likely go to a relatively unknown actress.
You can watch the full interview, which features a preview of the upcoming Oz: The Great and Powerful. Be warned though, Mario López gives away a spoiler that Disney has been trying to keep for the past few months. If you want to know the identity of the Wicked Witch before you delve into the mysteries of the movie, then by all means watch.
