Selena Gomez: Fifty Shades is too spicy for me

June 13th, 2012

Selena Gomez says 'Fifty Shades of Grey' is too ''spicy'' for her.

The former Disney star has already made a parody video based on E. L. James' steamy best-selling novel about a young college graduate, who is introduced to the world of bondage and kinky sex by manipulative billionaire Christian Grey but says taking on the role in the upcoming film adaptation would be a step too far.

She told MTV News: ''I only read the beginning of it, because when they told me about the skit, I didn't know what it was about. So I started to read it, and I was like, 'Oh, this is spicy.' So I thought it was good, it was intriguing.

''I don't think I would [take on the role]. I know I'm taking risks, but I don't think I could do that! That would be a little too much for me. I think someone older should do that part.''

Recently, American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis suggested Scarlett Johansson should take on the role and he even offered to write the script.

In a series of tweets which have now been deleted from his account, he wrote: ''I'm putting myself out there to write the movie adaptation [of 'Fifty Shades of Grey']... This is not a joke. Christian Grey and Ana: potentially great cinematic characters.

''Thinking more conventionally for Ana in Fifty Shades of Grey...Scarlett Johansson or Kristen Stewart.''
