Fans have been continuously buzzing over who they feel would make the perfect Anastasia Steele character to play alongside S & M crazed Christian Grey in the film adaptation of the E.L. James racy read "Fifty Shades of Grey."
One of the most notable names being brought up on the regular is "Harry Potter's" Emma Watson.

Throughout the past few months, she's been considered a front-runner for majority of the internet fan base. While she has seemed to respond to the "Fifty Shades" speculation with mixed reactions, she is willing to evolve as an actress and play more mature roles.
According to Entertainmentwise, the 22-year-old recently stated that she wouldn't be opposed to nudity under the right cinematic circumstances.
"I've been saying since I was 16 that if it's the right role and important for the character development and the story, then of course I'll do it."
Watson did tell the Fan Carpet that she appreciates the "Fifty Shades" consideration. However, the actress still remains confused on just how her attachment to the Ana character came about.
"It's flattering in the sense that people are excited about what I'm going to do in the future, but I just don't know where this thing has come from at all," she said.
While speaking at a Sept. 27 press conference, the English actress took the opportunity to respond to the non-stop "Fifty Shades" speculation.
"I don't know how many times I have to reiterate... I literally don't know how many times I have to say it. I must have said it in 20 interviews now. I'm NOT attached to it," she stated.
Although Watson hasn't at times been the most upbeat regarding the explicit movies' chatter, she did add that she is happy to hear people are recognizing her maturity.
"It's very exciting that people are starting to see me in a different way. It means that they're allowing me the space to grow and develop and reincarnate myself," the actress noted.
Watson is currently working alongside Russell Crowe in a religious epic film directed by Darren Aronofsky titled "Noah." The film is slated for release in March 2014.
