Chris Pine called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on Friday to talk about his new movie “People Like Us” and addresses the reports that say he may be playing Christian Grey in the film adaptation of the bestselling novel “Fifty Shades of Grey.
On ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’:
There have been reports that that Chris may be playing the lead character Christian Grey in the film version of the movie. “My god, I cannot escape this ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ business, This is incredible,” Chris says. “I was asked about this on a red carpet in Las Vegas and I’d never read the thing. I definitely know many women that have read these books, but I don’t know anything other than that. I don’t think they have even written a script for it.”
On ‘People Like Us’:
“It was a crazy story, he [Alex, the writer and director] woke up one morning and had this vision of a final scene in the film between a guy and a girl who happen to be brother and sister. Then he went to a party later that night and a woman tapped him on the shoulder and said: ‘I’m your sister.’ He’d known about her, but it’s one of those very kind of rare stories that happens.”
“People Like Us” hits theaters June 29th.
