The only person who doesn’t want to see Emma Watson cast in “Fifty Shades of Grey” is Emma Watson.

On Saturday, the “Harry Potter” starlet took to Twitter to slam rumors that she had been cast in the upcoming film adaptation E.L. James' popular novel series, despite reports to the contrary. Check out her angry tweets here:

Speculation that Watson had been cast in “Fifty Shades” ignited on Friday, after hackers broke into the server of German studio Constantin Film. They allegedly discovered documents that appeared to show that the former "Harry Potter" starlet was committed to the role of Anastasia Steele, the film’s female lead. Meanwhile, a source reportedly told E! News that casting for the role hasn’t even started yet.

Despite Watson’s apparent disdain for the job, the character of Steele is certain to become one of the most coveted roles in Hollywood. “Black Swan” star Mila Kunis and Angelina Jolie are already among the thespians who have reportedly expressed interest in the film.

E.L. James’ “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy tracks the complex relationship of Steele, a college student, and Christian Grey, a high-powered business man with some unique romantic tastes. The film adaption of the trilogy’s sultry first novel is currently in production.
