50 Shades Of Grey‘s movie adaptation has seen a whole host of Hollywood big-hitters lining up to take on the lead roles, but their latest recruit – Katie Holmes – has to be one of the most surprising yet…
The 34-year-old actress, who first made a name for herself as butter-wouldn’t-melt Joey in Dawson’s Creek, is reportedly set to shed her good girl persona by taking on the kinkier-than-kinky role of Elena Lincoln in E.L. James’ silver screen adaptation.
‘She’s looking at this as the role of a lifetime for her,’ a source told the National Enquirer. ‘It will shock a lot of people, but she thinks Hollywood will sit up and take notice. She knows she has to reinvent herself.’
If the rumours are true, the role would see Katie stepping into some seriousy sexy shoes – cougar character Elena famously taught Christian Grey all he needed to know about the saucy world of S&M as his Mrs Robinson-type former lover in the bestselling book.
