The movie version of E.L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey" novel has continued to generate buzz on a massive scale.  One of the names that has recently dominated the chatter for the part of Anastasia Steele has been Krysten Ritter of "Don't Trust The B**** In Apartment 23."

With the 31-year-old's mesmerizing eyes, fair skinned complexion, dark mane and elegant shape, she clearly has all the traits to pull the racy role.

"It's just a rumor," Ritter told Wet Paint at the opening of Andrea's restaurant at the Wynn in Las Vegas on Jan. 16.

When the beautiful television star was asked in person whether she would welcome the part of the college graduate, she responded with approval.

"Of course!  Who wouldn't?  It's flattering to even have my name mentioned.  I love that my fans thought of me for it," she added.

A Twitter user recently showed her allegiance to Ritter over "Les Miserables" Anne Hathaway for the part by saying "RT @JustMe_Toni:  @50shadesclub between the two it should 100% be @KrystenRitter."

The 31-year-old then tweeted back with "Thanks!  I would be down. ;)"

While Ritter's actual age is considerably older than the Anastasia Steele character, she clearly has the acting chops to portray a sweet and sexy persona as well as an innocent demeanor.

Other notable actresses who would likely to compete with Ritter for the female lead include Felicity Jones of "The Worst Witch," Lucy Hale of "Pretty Little Liars" and "Gilmore Girls'" Alexis Bledel, along with several others.

The "Fifty Shades of Grey" premise revolves around Steele, who gets herself involved in a dominant and submissive sexual relationship with the S&M-crazed billionaire Christian Grey. Through a mutual "agreement," the two delve into the world of bondage and masochism. 

In other recent news, screenwriter Kelly Marcel, who is in the midst of penning the film script, recently stated that the movie will be staying true to the book with lots of sex and raunchiness, as the producers are shooting for an NC-17 rating, according to Style Magazine.
