A day after Bret Easton Ellis
said he was no longer in consideration to adapt Fifty Shades of Grey for the big screen, he went off on a disgusting rant on Twitter on why Matt Bomer should not play Christian Grey.
Okay. Let’s finalize this. Matt Bomer is totally hot and a very good actor. He is NOT right for Christian Grey and it complicates the role.
Fifty Shades of Grey: Matt Bomer: I don’t care how good an actor you are but being married to another man complicates things for playing CG.
Fifty Shades of Grey: Matt Bomer is NOT about discrimination. It’s about an intensely straight actor wanting absolutely to screw Ana Steele.
Fifty Shades of Grey: the most popular book on the planet having Matt Bomer–a gay actor–play Christian Grey is absolutely ludicrous. Why?
Jesus, the homophobia over Matt Bomer not being Christian Grey is so unsettling and aesthetically retarded. He’s NOT right for Christian G.
Okay I’ll say it. Matt Bomer isn’t right for Christian Grey because he is openly gay. He’s great for other roles but this is too big a game.
And I think if Matt Bomer wants the role which I doubt the international press tour will be an embarrassing fiasco. He’s not CG. Never…
I am NOT discriminating Matt Bomer because of his sexuality. Fifty Shades of Grey demands an actor that is genuinely into women. Get it?!?
I actually think it’s cool that women want Matt Bomer as Christian Grey. It means that we’ve moved beyond stereotypes and that gay is hot… I think Matt Bomer is incredibly handsome and a good actor but I think he comes off totally gay in White Collar. And that is why no to CG…
Look, all actors are GAY: they put on make up and pretend to be someone else. That’s just a fact. Rock and roll. Deal with it. Scientology?
Would anyone watch Brokeback Mountain if it stayed true to the original story where both characters are hideously ugly? No. Homo beauty WIN?
Hollywood is the most homophobic place in the entire world.
Why Brokeback Mountain was a hit was because it starred two beautiful actors instead of two real ugly characters from the story. Producers.
I say who gives a sh!t about Matt Bomer’s personal life if/when he is playing the man that everyone woman wants to sleep with and every man wishes they can be. Christian Grey is so supposed to be a fantasy and to me that is exactly what the White Collar star is. I knew he was gay before I started watching the USA crime drama and I never saw/see him the way that Ellis does. I am not going to pretend like I would ever have a chance with him even if he was straight, but it is the illusion that I might that makes it that much more exciting. There is something about the way that Bomer looks at the camera with those big eyes, that it is like he can charm the pants off of you. That is what Grey is supposed to do, right? Be such a ladies man that he can convince any woman to fulfill every one of his desires?
Let’s be real if let’s say Brad Pitt were to play the role, would women be turned off because they know he is with Angelina Jolie and that they have no chance with him? Then how is different if Bomer took on the role? It is all about the illusion and every time that Bomer has to do a sex scene with a woman or flirt with one on the show, I believe him and I wish I was that actress.
I mean when women saw Magic Mike were they turned off because Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey and Matt Bomer are married in real life. I never heard anyone complain, did you?
So maybe Ellis can’t see it, but I couldn’t see him writing the screenplay for Fifty Shades of Grey. And let’s see, looks like the studio sides with me more than him on that last sentence.
When it comes to Ellis, I am so disgusted by his comments that I will never watch American Psycho and Less Than Zero again in protest of his personal thoughts. Which kind of sucks because I liked those movies. And when it comes to his upcoming film, who really wants to suffer through another Lindsay Lohan movie because she hasn’t done a good one since she was in the Disney ones.
Now I debated whether or not to post this because I don’t believe in giving ignorance a platform, but sometimes something pisses me off so much I have to forget my stance and take a stand! So I am a woman who will gladly pay $12 to see Matt Bomer as Christian Grey (and I would let him tie me up) and I know I am not alone! Who is with me? And men couldn’t you see yourselves living through Bomer’s eyes and hands as Christian Grey?
