Justin Bieber revealed that he was approached to play a role in the film version of the adult novel Fifty Shades Of Grey. On The Jonathan Ross Show he said that producers suggested that he take on a part in the highly-anticipated film. He refused to say whether the role in question is that of male lead and billionaire BDSM enthusiast Christian Grey.
‘They actually want me to be in the movie.’ Bieby’s girlfriend Selena Gomez has also been mentioned as a potential candidate for female lead Anastasia Steele, though she has said she has no interest in starring in the film. Fifty Shades of Grey is currently in development at Universal Studios.
‘At the end of the day, I’ll always be your Justin, regardless of who I am dating. I like to make sure my fans are feeling comfortable. I love being young and being in the spotlight, but I want to be taken seriously as an artist, to be known for my music and not necessarily known to cause a movement of my hair.
‘I’m attracted to someone who’s a good listener, who is there for me and who pays attention to what I am saying. Also, I’m very affectionate so need someone affectionate like me. She’s hot. Of course, every guy likes their girl to be hot, which Selena is. But I like to mess around and pull jokes, so I like to be around people who make me laugh.’
A source told Hollywoodlife: ‘Justin and Selena are building a massive home together in Tarzana. It’s just a dirt lot right now with some pipes, but it has a generous panoramic view of the San Fernando Valley.’
