Were you hoping to see Emma Watson and Ian Somerhalder as the stars in the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey film?

Not so fast…. Emma Watson says it's not even a possibility!

“Who here actually thinks I would do Fifty Shades of Grey as a movie? Like really. For real. In real life,” the starlet sarcastically tweeted on March 16. Following up the next day, she confirmed, “Good. Well that's that sorted then.”

Seems like Emma was eager to take her name out of the running for the part of Anastasia Steele in the racy new film!

But what about Anastasia's obsessed boyfriend, Christian Grey? Ian Somerhalder spoke out about the coveted role on March 13 on Watch What What Happens Live.

"I think they have a very big job ahead of them, casting this role," the Vampire Diaries star told Andy Cohen. "So, I can’t say anything other than, it’s a very interesting story and whoever plays that role is going to have a lot of fun rehearsal time."

And this isn’t the first time Ian has talked about the role. Back in June 2012, after calling the role a “phenomenal opportunity,” the star tweeted, “Okay. This Christian Grey thing has gotten out of control. Know this, I'm not 'desperate' to do anything except relax today. Be positive.”

Fans everywhere can speculate all they want, but the lady behind the trilogy, author E.L. James, cleared everything up on March 15 when she tweeted, “There have been no casting decisions made about Fifty Shades.”

Sad news! Guess we’ll just have to wait a little longer, and hopefully Christian Grey will be coming to a theater near us sometime soon!
