In what should surprise no one, Angelina Jolie is a big fan of E.L. JamesFifty Shades series and is very much interested in being involved with the movie adaptation.

Once the news hit that the books had been optioned, actresses ranging from Emma Watson (who recently shot down any casting rumours) to Kristen Stewart have been suggested for the character of Anastasia Steele.

A source reports, “Angelina kept hearing about the book while she was in the UK. All the girls on set were talking about it and how it’s being made into a film.”

“Angelina went out and bought herself a copy, thinking she’d love a part in the hot topic on everyone’s lips at the moment. She knows the film is bound to be a huge hit.”

“Ange is dead-set on a major part. She’s up for the challenge,” the source adds.

While she has had no problem with the sort of risque material that would be involved, the problem is that she is about 15 years too old for the part. We’ll see what happens.
