Fifty Shades of Grey fans have been more than vocal when it comes to their feelings on the recent casting choices for the film adaptation.
After it was announced Monday that Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam would play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, fans took it into their own hands and started a petition pushing for the popular duo of Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel.
By Thursday morning, more than 40,000 people had signed the petition posted to Change.org. It reads: "Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE And I read the whole trilogy and I can assure that Matt is the perfect actor for this movie and Alexis too. So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING."
But Bomer is taking it all in stride. "I'm so grateful for the fans and touched," Bomer told ETonline when they asked what he thought of all of the hubbub. "I'm looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota."
