The actress reported to be in talks to star as Christian Grey's lover

Emma Watson has been tipped as a hot favourite for the role of Anastasia Steele in erotic film 50 Shades Of Grey, along with Scarlett Johansson and Kristen Stewart.

Harry Potter star Emma, 22, is reportedly already in talks about starring as the student who falls for disturbed businessman Christian Grey after going to interview him at his office.

Ian Somerhalder, Alexander Skarsgård, Robert Pattinson, Ryan Gosling and Chris Pine are all possible candidates to play Christian who teaches Anastasia about bondage and kinky sex.

Writer EL James (Erika Leonard) has selected producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti and 50 Shades Of Grey fans can’t wait to find out who’ll get the star roles in the Universal Pictures production.

Emma recently caused controversy among dog lovers after being spotted leaving a dog grooming salon with a bright pink pooch.

East London’s Groom Dog City was bombarded with abusive emails after Emma was snapped with fuchsia Maltese terrier puppy Darcy – who belongs to her model friend Sophie Sumner.

‘Ayeye. Just to clarify one more time that I don’t have a dog. @PinkDarcyDog is pink because her owner is raising money for breast cancer,’ Tweeted Emma.

‘#factcheckingtakesfiveminutes.’
