Fifty Shades of Grey: Angelina Jolie Makes Comments on ‘50 Shades’ Rumors

March 19, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Angelina Jolie was once rumored to be the director of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the movie adaptation of the popular trilogy.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, she said, “I came very clear out of the gate: after ‘In The Land of Blood and Honey,’ if I ever directed again, it would have to be a certain kind of film.”

Sam Taylor-Johnson eventually became the film’s director. Several weeks ago, shooting for the movie wrapped up.

“You know, I’m looking forward to seeing what Sam [Taylor-Johnson] does with ‘Fifty Shades’ and she’s amazing. I — I think they’re just … it’s funny, I think with directing, you just think: I’m better at telling some stories than others but um, who knows?” Jolie added.

Entertainment Weekly said that when asked the question, Jolie laughed and blushed.

Marcia Gay Harden, who plays the mother of the film’s title character Christian Grey, told the BBC that filming was like working on “any other movie.”

Harden explained: “I’m momma Grey and we’re having a dinner party. ‘Do come over to the dinner party? Oh, did you like your meal? Oh lovely. Oh, would you like another cocktail. Oh, perfect.’ That’s my experience,” she added.

“Fifty Shades” will come out Feb. 13, 2015.
