Rita Ora was as terrified about taking on the role of Mia Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey as Ana Steele was when she lost her virginity to a BDSM billionaire.
Ora spoke to reporters about her part in the steamy screen adaptation of E.L. James' trilogy, explaining why she was so jittery. "Oh, I was nervous because it was the first time I ever did a movie with words!" Ora laughed. "But it was so nice. The director, Sam, she was incredible, so it was all love."
Ora's previous on-screen experience was a super short cameo in Fast & The Furious 6. But that doesn't mean she's not stoked for Fifty Shades action. "[I'm] so excited," she gushed. The British songstress also noted that the movie version of the sexually charged story is "gonna be the biggest and most amazing shock ever." We wonder what the shocking part will be: the sex scenes? The rumored lack thereof?
The "R.I.P." singer may be undergoing a makeover for her part. While she's known for her trademark blond curls and rep lips, Mia Grey — Christian Grey's adopted sister — is a sleek brunette. Is she going to hit the salon for real? She won't tell.
"It's a surprise. Hopefully you won't recognize me!" she said. But don't worry, she adds: "It's sexy!''
It's Fifty Shades. Of course it is!
