Catch up on all the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' scoop you may have missed this week!

Happy Fifty Shades Friday! What's going on in the Grey world this week?

Glamour model Keeley Hazell revealed that she auditioned more than once for the role of Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, but was ultimately turned down for — as you know — Dakota Johnson. Hazell admitted, "I auditioned twice for Fifty Shades Of Grey — that was a pretty, erm, interesting experience." We bet!

Speaking of Johnson, rumor has it her boyfriend, Jordan Masterson, is not too happy about her newfound fame, nor about the steamy sex scenes she'll be filming with co-star Jamie Dornan.

Someone who is thrilled about the Fifty Shades Of Grey filming? None other than Kristin Chenoweth, who is dating producer Dana Brunetti. She's visiting him on set, and will she make a cameo appearance in the movie?

Meanwhile, Rita Ora, who will star as Mia Grey, Christian's adopted sister, landed in Vancouver to begin filming her scenes. The adorable British songstress was spotted in the airport with a load of luggage and her signature red lipped smile — a great foil to her onscreen, brooding, BDSM-loving big brother, right?

While Ora and the rest of the cast are probably stoked for Fifty Shades of Grey's release next February, not everyone is so enthused ... especially not other movie studios! The upcoming Nicholas Sparks adaptation for The Longest Ride has been moved from its original release date of February 13 all the way to April to avoid competing with the smutty saga! Because after all: No one beats Christian Grey. That is, unless they sign a contract first.
