Watson: From Hermione to 50 Shades?

Emma Watson said she would consider starring in the Fifty Shades film

Emma Watson has revealed she would consider a role in the movie version of steamy "mummy porn" book Fifty Shades Of Grey.

The Harry Potter star's name has been floated as a possible candidate to play Anastasia Steele in the raunchy tale of bondage and domination.

Emma, best known for playing bookworm Hermione in the Potter films, said she has yet to read the books and had not been offered the role so far, but would entertain the idea if she found it to be an "interesting story".

The 22-year-old said: "The thing is I haven't read any of the book because I haven't read a script so it's quite difficult to know what I'm turning down potentially but I hear it's quite raunchy.

"I mean if there's interesting character development and there's an interesting story then I would consider it - but I haven't been offered anything."

The Fifty Shades stories have been a huge international hit. The books, created by author Erika Leonard under the name EL James, have smashed sales records after first being published earlier this year.

Emma is currently promoting new film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower in which she appears in lingerie for a Rocky Horror-style scene.

Taking a nap, solitary walk or hot bath will revive your spirits. Get into the habit of spending more money on creature comforts. Treat such as gourmet food, beautiful clothes and intriguing books are investments in your happiness. Others may object at being put farther down on your list of priorities, but that's their problem.More
