Ashley Benson Covets Fifty Shades of Grey Role



Ashley Benson stars in Pretty Little Liars.

If it were up to her, she’d at Fifty Shades of Grey to her resume as well. The 22-year-old is the latest star to express an interest in the much-anticipated film.

Saying she’s been trying to “break out of her good-girl mold,” with more edgy films like Spring Breakers, Benson openly covets the role of Anastasia Steele.

“I’ve read every book. I want to play Anastasia,” Benson said.

Though the bubbly blonde doesn’t quite match the book’s description of Anastasia (“a pale, brown haired girl with blue eyes too big for her face”), she’s dead set on the role, even if some fans see her as a perfect Katherine Kavanagh (Ana’s BFF).

“Kate is awesome. I like all the characters, but Anastasia? I just love her so much!” the actress explained.

As soon as Universal Pictures won the motion-picture rights to the best-selling “mommy porn” BDSM-themed trilogy, fans have partaken in an ongoing fantasy casting game of who should play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele.

Robsten, Alexis Bledel, Armie Hammer, Emmy Rossum, Matt Bomer, and The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder are all oft-mentioned names.

Think Ashley would be a good fit?
