I almost choked last night when I was reading twitter and Access Hollywood posted a link to an interview with Jennifer Love Hewitt where she decided to throw her hat in the Fifty Shades casting ring and express her interest in becoming Anastasia Steele;
“I wanna be Anastasia so badly,”
“I think it would be awesome. I think it would be really, really fun,”
I just about choked when I read this. Can we all stop with having every washed up wannabe throw their hat in the Fifty Shades casting ring?! Because the idea of Jennifer as Ana should never have been brought up in the first place. That would be like asking me if I wanted to play Ana!
First of all Anastasia Steele is 21 in the book. TWENTY ONE!!! Jennifer Love Hewitt is over a decade from 21. She’s actually 33 but I would have given her at least 36. This is getting desperate, even for JLH.
First she goes on Ellen and tells her how much she wants to date Adam Levine, then she goes on Wendy Williams and says, “I want to be a Victoria’s Secret Angel so bad. Just for the day. Look I want to wear the wings. I already wear the lingerie for a living now, so I’m working out and I’m ready. I just want to be on the cover of the catalog. I think it would be really nice of them, so thanks.”
She wants to do a lot of things ‘so bad’. I want her to go away ‘so bad’. Here’s another girl, like Lindsay Lohan who obviously doesn’t have friends to tell her that she’s making an ass of herself constantly. Desperation is not cute no matter how old you are. She just needs to shut up for a while.
Here’s Jennifer at the A&E up fronts last night so not looking 21.
