Matt Bomer Responds To Fifty Shades Petition
Actor says he's flattered but happy to see existing cast in movie...
Actor Matt Bomer has responded to the internet petition calling for him and Alexis Bledel to be cast as the leads in Fifty Shades Of Grey.
And while the 35-year-old hunk admitted that he was "grateful" for the attention, he appears to be trying to let fans down gently.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the star of White Collar said: "I'm so grateful for the fans and I'm touched."
But he suggested that he was happy with the casting of Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson in the lead roles.
"I'm looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota."
The rather excitable petition on Change.org had read: "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."
