17. You know what the E.L. in E.L. James stands for.
1. Hollywood was super slow. You casted 50 Shades years ago. And none of the original cast dropped out!
The sexy series that inspired the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Ana Steele is garnering more buzz than ever, and it looks like author E.L. James may be capitalizing on the momentum with yet another book.
James delivered the scoop via social media. When a fan tweeted at the trilogy writer asking if we'll ever get a version of Fifty Shades Of Grey from Grey's perspective, James replied, "Never say never." Hell-o!
James has previously admitted that the idea of a series — or at least one story — from the BDSM-loving billionaire's perspective is always spinning in her head. "I have to think about it," she said. "I have to really think about Christian's point of view. So it's about what to do next."
As for her writing process itself, James says sex first, emotions later. (She sounds like someone into one-night stands!) She told fans that in order to pen her sex scenes, her process is as follows: "Get the choreography right first … feelings should follow. If you want to capture your character's feeling ... think 'Why are they having sex with each other?'"
Uh, if your characters look like Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, that's a pretty clear cut answer.
