Robert Pattinson was spotted partying with Fifty Shades Of Grey author E.L. James over the weekend, fuelling rumours that the super hot actor has been chosen to play protagonist Christian Grey in Sam Taylor Johnson’s highly anticipated Fifty Shades Of Grey movie adaptation, Swoon. Let it be true!
The 27-year-old threw a star-studded Great Gatsby-themed bash at his LA home last night in celebration of his director friend Nick Jarecki’s birthday, and according to fellow partygoers, the British erotic novelist (real name Erika Mitchell) was in attendance.
“It was a really good party. Trust me, it was the best people”, Rob’s singer/songwriter mate Todd Michael Schultz spilled to HollywoodLife.com. “E.L. James was there, she was really cool. Dianne Warren, the songwriter, was there. Lisa Zane sang a few songs. Warren Beatty was there, chilling with E.L. James”, he added.
Rob’s been hotly tipped to play the S&M loving Mr Grey since news of the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie first broke (although you lot have also had your own idea about who should play the saucy CEO…), but has since joked about him the rumours that EL James snubbed him for the role. “I think the author has written me out of it”, the Twilight star said in an interview last September. “I saw some interview earlier and they went, oh, it could never be him. I’m like, ‘Hey, I’m going to make you pay for that!'”
Could R-Patz’s schmoozing efforts finally be winning the noveslist round? Man, do we hope so…
