Chris Pine has insisted he will not be starring in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie.

The People Like Us actor was the latest Hollywood star linked to the lead role in the film adaptation of author EL James' racy book, but he told US chat show host Jay Leno he would not be signing up, reports the Daily Mirror.

Chris said: "Look, I was on a red carpet in Las Vegas, and someone asked me and the only reason I knew about it is that every woman in my life has read this trilogy... And I said yeah sure, if it comes around, blah blah blah as you do."

When Leno asked if he would be playing Christian Grey, a wealthy businessman who enters into an erotic relationship with a young student, the Star Trek actor said: "I'm not doing it, no."

Several other actors have also been linked to the role, including The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder.
