When Universal Pictures and Focus Features picked up the rights to E.L. James' scintillating novel Fifty Shades of Grey, and its subsequent sequels, in 2013, many prognosticators and analysts thought the studios had landed a surefire hit, given the enormous popularity of the books. They were not wrong, with the adaptation taking in over $569 million worldwide from just a $40 million budget. Even if you haven't read the books or seen this movie, you likely know that this erotic story centers on Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), but this adaptation is chocked full of stellar supporting performances as well, including Eloise Mumford as Ana's roommate Kate. It's Kate, in fact, who essentially sets up her roommate's first meeting with Christian, which leads into their unique "relationship." I recently had the chance to speak with Eloise Mumford over the phone about Fifty Shades of Grey, which is available on Blu-ray and DVD starting today, May 8. Take a look at our conversation below.
