The mission to find Anastasia Steele for the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie continues. In a recent article, FashionnStyle names Emilia Clarke, Ashley Benson, Emma Watson, Emma Roberts and Eve Hewson as their top five contenders.

Recently Emma Watson has been recognized as a potential option because of the release of a trailer for “Bling Ring” that shows the actress playing the bad girl. Her striptease in “The Perks of Being A Wallflower” also shows off Watson’s sexy side.

Watson told STV.TV she is flattered that fans want her to play the role but “I haven't read the book, so I don't know what I would be signing myself up for. So I would have to get sent a script I guess.”

Maybe the script is in the mail, Emma.

Up next is the other Emma. Emma Roberts has earlier said she was interested in the role. She’s around the right age for the role and has a lot of acting experience (“Nancy Drew” and “Hotel for Dogs”).  One of Emma’s recent roles was in “Adult World” in which she played a poet who works at a sex shop.

But it turns out Emma might not have any time for “Fifty Shades.” Emma has a few movie roles coming up as well as a spot on Fox’s new series “Delirium.”

Another actress up for consideration is Ashley Benson. We already know she can get in touch with her bad side because of her character in “Spring Breakers.”

Ashley has recently gone from blonde to brunette, which gives people a good picture of what she would look as Anastasia Steele.

Benson told Celebuzz “I’ve read every book. I want to play Anastasia.” It sounds as if Benson is ready to do whatever it takes to get the role.

Benson might have to look out because some fans are saying Bono’s daughter, Eve Hewson is perfect for the role.

The Examiner said, “The up-and-coming actress has dark hair and beautiful blue eyes, and at 22, she’s the right age for the role. She’s also not a big star, and some fans think that the actress who plays Anastasia Steele should be relatively unknown just like Kristen Stewart was when she got cast in “Twilight.”

It sounds like Eve’s fresh look might be what fans want to see from Anastasia.

And last but not least is Emilia Clarke. Emilia knows how to get dark because of her role in “Game of Thrones.”

“The 25-year-old actress, who's a natural brunette, definitely has the right look. She's both innocent and sweet yet has the potential to be extremely badass. And speaking of asses, she has absolutely no problem with nudity, as she had multiple sex scenes with her on-screen husband. Needless to say, her body is smokin'!” said TheStir.CafeMom.com.

All of these girls have a lot of good qualities, but unfortunately it’s not up to the fans who gets to play Anastasia Steele.
