Justin Bieber 'Approached For 50 Shades Of Grey' Film

Justin Bieber revealed to Jonathan Ross he has been approached to appear in 50 Shades of Grey, but isn't he a little bit young?

Justin may be most famous for his squeaky clean pop songs, but he has apparently been touted to take on the role of Christian Grey in the forthcoming adaptation of the book.

Interviewed by Jonathan Ross for his ITV show, the 18 year old said he had been approached by the producers to appear in the film.

Jonathan joked with him that his army of female fans had been encouraged by the X-rated book, which has become an international bestseller and spawned plans for a big screen version.

Justin then let slip to Jonathan: "They actually want me to be in the movie!", resulting in mass hysteria from the fans in the audience.

While Justin's fans may be excited at the thought of him appearing in the kinky flick, his girlfriend Selena Gomez might have ideas about who should be appearing alongside him in the role Anastasia Steele.

Making the movie could be Justin's way of creating a new grown-up image for himself, as he also told Jonathan he wanted to be "taken seriously as an artist, be known for my music and not necessarily known for a flick of my hair".
