Ever since it was announced that the Fifty Shades of Grey movie was being made, there have been a number of Hollywood actresses linked to the role of Anastasia Steele. Two of those stars are Mad Men actress Alexis Bledel and Twilight star Kristen Stewart.
Former Gilmore Girls actress Alexis Bledel has come a long way since those days of playing the young sweet and innocent Rory in the hit television series. Alexis has become a front-runner for the role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, thanks to the fact that she has sex appeal and very much resembles what Ana should look like. Alexis Bledel has become a fans favourite for the role and will surely be considered when the time comes.
There have been some recent rumours going round, that Kristen Stewart could be set to play Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey film, as Bill Condon is being lined up to direct the movie. However, EL James has stated that she does not want the actress in the movie and fans of the Fifty Shades of Grey novel have also dismissed her. It is hard to imagine Kristen Stewart as Ana and it is doubtful that she will be cast.
With that said, it is clear that Alexis Bledel is a much better candidate for the role of Anastasia Steele, in the Fifty Shades of Grey film, than Kristen Stewart.
Winner: Alexis Bledel
