Love it or hate it, everyone still cannot stop talking about Fifty Shades of Grey. As soon as the book got the green light to be made into a movie, fans were eagerly anticipating who would be cast in the now iconic roles. It's hard to morph a popular book into a movie because its readers all have distinct ideas of what the characters should look and sound like. There is always a struggle between pleasing the fans of the book while making a quality movie to appeal to the masses. There was a strong pressure from fans to cast the perfect man to play Christian Grey. Charlie Hunnam famously dropped out after earning the role and Jamie Dornan stepped up to take his place. It doesn't seem like Anna Kendrick is a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey, based on her opinions about who would play Christian Grey.  

The actress tweeted about Jamie Dornan's casting in the movie. Kendrick wrote: "The '50 Shades of Grey' dude looks just like 'Love Actually' kid. I feel less *turned on* and more like....I should call child services..." It seems like there is no grey area for Anna Kendrick. So she is not into Jamie Dornan? Clearly not at all.

Here's Jamie Dornan:

For the record the actor she references is Thomas-Brodie Sangster who has also appeared in Game of Thrones

Now we can sort of see the resemblance. Hmm...
