Angelina Jolie wants Fifty Shades Of Grey film role
The 37-year-old was persuaded by staff on the set of her new Disney movie Maleficent to read E.L. James' book - and now she fancies the part of Anastasia Steele.
A source said: “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.”
Ana is a young, innocent, virginal girl who's charmed by a hunky older man - a life that has few similarities to Ange's.
The actress is often branded a 'homewrecker' because she hooked up with her now fiancé Brad Pitt, very soon after his split from Jennifer Aniston.
She's also been open about her bisexuality in the past and famously wore her ex Billy Bob Thornton's blood in a locket round her neck.
Nonetheless, Ange, 37, obviously thinks she's adaptable enough to play Ana.
The source continued: "Ange is dead-set on a major part. She’s up for the challenge."
Ange may be facing competition from Harry Potter
star Emma Watson
for the role, who certainly seems more suitable...
