Girls star Allison Williams admits she has no desire to play Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie. The actress claims that if she was offered the role by casting directors, she’d turn it down.
In an interview with US magazine Fashion, Allison said: “Right now, I don’t see myself ever doing nude scenes. Once you do them, you can’t take it back because of the way Google Images works. I also think that unfortunately nudity seems to overshadow some of the more brilliant things that are going on.”
Allison adds: “I wouldn’t take it. It is just too much for me but I applaud whatever actress steps up to the plate and I can’t wait to watch it.”
We’ve seen Allison enjoy several sex scenes in Lena Dunham’s hit HBO series and she’s managed to remain covered up for every one. So what does she really think of the racy novel?
She says: “I am reading [Fifty Shades of Grey]. I’m very intrigued by the book, very entertained by it. And I actually love riding the subway and seeing people reading their Kindles sort of surreptitiously [reading] and I’m always wondering whether or not they’re reading Fifty Shades of Grey in secret.
“I’d have to read the script, but given that it’s very explicit in nature, I would say that I’d leave that up to a daredevil… we’ll see.”
Hmm, something tells us she can be persuaded!
