- The casting of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele was one of the most talked about throughout Hollywood, with fans pushing for the likes of Garrett Hedlund, Chris Evans, Henry Cavill, Alex Pettyfer, Ryan Gosling, Armie Hammer, Robert Pattinson, Matt Bomer and Chris Hemsworth to be considered for Christian, and Emma Watson, Scarlett Johansson, Rooney Mara, Suki Waterhouse, Olivia Wilde, Emilia Clarke, Margot Robbie and Lily Collins for the role of Anastasia. Christian Cooke and Dominic Cooper auditioned for Christian, with Stephen Amell being reportedly in talks for the role at some point. Finally, Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson were cast, with Johnson beating out the likes of Shailene Woodley, Elizabeth Olsen, Imogen Poots, Alicia Vikander, Danielle Panabaker, Lucy Hale and Felicity Jones. Hunnam withdrew later due to scheduling conflicts with his show Sons of Anarchy. Alexander Skarsgård, François Arnaud, Billy Magnussen, Scott Eastwood and Luke Bracey were then front runners for Hunnam's replacement before Jamie Dornan was finally selected. Matthias Schoenaerts was also approached for the role of Christian Grey, but he told that he fell asleep while reading the script and his agent told him to stay out of it.

Atom User Reviews
With a loose-limbed naturalness, she conveys naiveté, intellectual curiosity and romantic yearning, and shows the unassuming Ana’s newfound thrill at being seen, however complicated the man holding her in his admiring gaze. She’s open and vulnerable but no fool. Best of all, Johnson and her director embrace Ana’s paradox: She snickers at Christian’s predilections, but they also turn her on.
Starring a vivacious Dakota Johnson and a game Jamie Dornan, Taylor-Johnson’s erotic romance is a skillful distillation of James’ first book that captures the heady exhilaration of being someone’s fixation.
The film never pretends to be other than what it really is: soft-core porn for the ladies, diluted with an “R” rating.
