Fifty Shades Of Grey author E. L. James may not be the best writer, but the woman knows how to make a buck: last month she introduced Fifty Shades lingerie. The line is sold by Swedish retailer KappAhl and features undergarments and nightgowns in red, black and (of course) grey. As you can see in this elegant commercial for the Fifty Shades line, the looks are silky, classy and tame — Christian Grey would approve. It’s too bad KappAhl is only available in Europe. I hear they pair well with Fifty Shades Of Grey-themed wine and desserts — and nine months later, baby onesies. [KappAhl; Wall Street Journal]

On the subject of James Franco, I have learned not to ask questions. For clarification: how many questions? None. Zero questions. Just go along with it. The provocative Mind of Franco has developed a new “work” (??) called “50 Shades of Batman and Robin,” which presumably involves elements of both the “50 Shades” series and its S&M connotations and the beloved DC Comics superheroes Batman & Robin. The artist introduced his latest release on Facebook today in the form of two images. The first, depicting a shirtless man (likely Franco himself) and his nipples in a Batman costume and bondage restraints, is fairly tame by Franco standards. But the second photo … well, it’s a lot. Or a load, rather. Keep reading »
“You’re a virgin?” he breathes. I nod, flushing again. He closes his eyes and looks to be counting to ten. When he opens them again, he’s angry, glaring at me. “Why the fuck didn’t you tell me?”
I don’t know if that’s the scene “Fifty Shades Of Grey” stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are filming, but it is so much more fun to look at photos of them onset and imagine the shitty bits of dialogue coming out of their mouths. Can’t wait for all 90+ minutes to hit theaters! See a few more pics after the jump… [Photos: Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
Everyone makes fun of me at the office for being a germophobe. But read this story and tell me I’m wrong: professors in Belgium ran toxicology and bacteriology tests on library books and found that Fifty Shades Of Grey had the herpes virus. Oh, yes. The two profs checked out the 10 most borrowed books in the Antwerp library to test them for germs and drugs. Not only did the E..L. James BDSM erotica have traces of herpes, but they also found traces of cocaine on every single other book. Relax, though: you won’t get a contact high or a persistent vaginal itch from any of these books because the concentrations of both were so minimal. (Just to be safe, Belgians, you could always wear condoms on your hands while reading!) Let’s talk about the appropriate way to use library books, people. Tip #1: DON’T GIVE YOUR LIBRARY BOOKS STDS.

I have just one word for “author” J. Lola: taste. In this context, it is defined as the ability to make discerning judgments about aesthetic, artistic, and intellectual matters, and this J. Lola here has approximately none of it. Lola’s e-book, “Fifty Shades of Sin,” will run you 99 cents for your Amazon Kindle and, oh, just about an eternity in the sulfurous pit of hell. The “Fifty Shades of Grey” fan fiction (no, really?) is summarized as follows. I’ll let you connect the dots. Keep reading »
Y’all, I just watched all of the UK series “The Fall” this past weekend and Jamie Dornan plays a serial killer in it and oh my god, I think he is going to perfect as Christian Grey in this sure-to-be weird and kinky movie. Dakota Johnson certainly is doing her best timid mouse impression on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. I like the way Jamie is gripping that tie. Hot hot hot.
Charlie Hunnam who? The producers of “Fifty Shades of Grey” have found their (new) Christian Grey — Irish actor Jamie Dornan, best known for his role on ABC’s “Once Upon A Time.” Can someone help me pick my jaw up off the floor. This dude is finnnnne. I have no idea what his demeanor is like, and thus whether I think I’ll like him as the dominating Christian, but from a visual perspective, I APPROVE.

Thanks to Charlie Hunnam dropping out of “Fifty Shades,” the Christian Grey casting game is back in action and heating up more than ever before. Among rumors of Jamie Dornan being the new frontrunner, continued prayers it’ll magically be Ian Somerholder, there’s now even a campaign for James Franco to take on the sexy role, thanks to Britney Spears.
While we love James Franco, jack of all trades, we think that could be a disaster … for several good reasons. Why should he not play the troubled billionaire and be ourboyfriend instead?
Britney, “Fifty Shades Of Grey” fanatics, here’s why James Franco is not a sex-obsessed business man — but a “hearts and flowers” guy instead. Read more on Your Tango…
Nooooooo! Seriously gorgeous Charlie Hunnam has backed out of playing Christian Grey in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, apparently because his “Sons of Anarchy” filming scheduling is not allowing him to “adequately prepare” for the role. I sure hope he wasn’t badgered out of playing the character because some fans weren’t pleased with the casting. (“Twilight” diehards weren’t happy with Robert Pattinson being cast as Edward Cullen at first either. But they came around.) Hunnam had previously told Entertainment Weekly, “There are so many fans of that book and I know that on the surface, I’m probably not what everybody imagined. Because reading is so personal and people bring a character to life in their imagination, they feel ownership over that character. That’s daunting if I allowed myself to think about it too much. I’m taking it very seriously and intend to explore the nature of who this character is, what motivates him — and also dress up nice and look good in those suits.”
Sigh. Such a bummer. I thought he was perfectly unexpected. Back to the drawing board I guess. Who would you like to see replace him as Christian Grey? [Entertainment Weekly]
Ever since we found out Dakota Johnson is dating fellow Hollywood kid Jordan Masterson, we figured there was no chance she would be single during the filming of “Fifty Shades of Grey” and therefore susceptible to falling for her co-star Charlie Hunnam … right? Errr, well, we may have to rethink that assumption, because rumor has it Jordan has been encouraging Dakota to do something even scarier than sign a submissive agreement and NDA: Join him as a member of the Church of Scientology. Ahhhh!!!! Read more at The Stir…
