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.
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."
