Fifty Shades Of Grey movie fans were the victims of an April Fools Day joke yesterday, initiated by one very cheeky (and brave) Sheridan Smith.
The actress caused a stir on Twitter when she announced that she’d been cast as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie adaptation, alongside Eddie Redmayne. Woah. Eddie as Christian Grey? We just went all weak at the knees.
She joked: “I’m so excited to tell you that I’ve been cast as the lead girl in 50 shades of grey opposite Eddie Redmayne, can’t wait to start filming!!” (sic)
But it wasn’t long before the star had to come clean about her new ‘role’, so as not to upset movie buffs… and Eddie himself.
She later added: “In my dreams! Haha, I just got that in a minute before midday. Happy April fools twits 😉 Xxxxxxxx.”
Oh Sheridan, you TEASE. As you were, people. RM
