Krysten Ritter has spoken about whether she would be interested in taking the lead role of Anastasia Steele for the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation. When a fan on Twitter commented that Ritter should be the choice for the role, Ritter responded with, “Thanks! I would be down :)”
Ritter is an unconventional choice for the role, but one that also makes sense on a lot of levels. Although she is not a traditional beauty like the character she would be playing, she brings energy and vivaciousness to every role she plays, most notably her lead role in ‘The B**** in Apartment 23’.
Ritter also had a recent interview with Fashion Magazine, in which she talks about her boyfriend and her role in ‘The B**** in Apartment 23’. Of her role, she says, “I do think my character is breaking the mold for females on TV. It's always the boys who get to play the nut jobs and sociopaths. Guys usually get the funny lines and the girls often roll their eyes or have to set up the joke. She's smart and confident, but she's also a comic relief."
She also spoke about her boyfriend, saying, “He's a 'dude'. The guy's a surfer from New Jersey. He's great at acting and he's successful but I don't see him as an actor. He's not the guy who gets his hair and makeup all done up to go out and he's not reading 'Us Weekly' to see if he's in it."
