Keira Knightley scoffs at thought of starring in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Washington, Dec 7 (ANI): Keira Knightley has revealed that she won't be playing Anastasia Steele in the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' adaptation after her not-so-pleasant experience filming 'A Dangerous Method'.

The 27-year-old actress asserted that she will "definitely" not be a part of the screen adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel, which details S 'n' M-crazed billionaire Christian Grey's relationship with young student Anastasia Steele.

"No, it's not. It's not going to be 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' You know, I normally don't like to give a definite about anything, [but] I can definitely say it will not be 'Fifty Shades of Grey'," Contactmusic quoted Knightley as saying, when asked whether her next film project would be a more risque literary adaptation than she has done in the past.

The 'Jack Ryan' star said that she won't be stripping off on screen any more, especially after playing sexually confused patient Sabrina Spielrein in David Cronenberg's historial drama about the advent of psychoanalysis- which saw Keira being spanked by therapist Carl Jung (Michael Fassbender).

The beauty further revealed that she is too embarrassed to even pick up 'Fifty Shades'.

"I can't imagine why [I would want to]! Um, I haven't even read it yet, actually. I mean, just from [what I've heard], friends who've gotten into it, and I've gone, 'No'. I did 'A Dangerous Method'. That had a bit of all that in it. I don't think I need to do it again," she said. (ANI)
