Overheard: Emma Watson on '50 Shades' rumors

While we wait to hear who will star in the adaptation of E.L. James' steamy best-seller, "Fifty Shades of Grey," it seems Emma Watson has taken herself out of the running.

After rumors persisted last Friday that the 22-year-old former "Harry Potter" star is attached to the project, the actress posted a tweet the following day that seemed to contradict the gossip.

"Who here actually thinks I would do '50 Shades of Grey as a movie?'" she wrote. "Like really. For real. In real life."

The rumors were so dogged last week because of an Internet group's reported hacking of a German movie studio, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The studio confirmed the hack, but said that the documents accessed were "out of date and widely accessible" to the company's employees.

Watson, meanwhile, teased her fans on Saturday by following up her earlier tweet with just a question mark. She then simply concluded, "Good. Well that's ... sorted then."

While her remarks could easily be read as a diss against the film, the actress didn't explicitly say she's not involved with the project, so who knows.

What do you think - did Watson shut down the rumors, or is she doing a bait-and-switch?

    Good for Emma! She doesn't need to wreck her career doing that piece of juvenile trash. Let Kristen Stewart do it. She could just be herself.

    Emma Watson is awesome. She probably wont do Fifty Shades of Grey because that would be massively different from Hermione. While she is trying to lose her good girl persona, I don't think she would ever go this far, as she is perfect and at least has some self respect.

      Unfortunately she, like so many other young women, seem to think if they slap on enough makeup it will make them 'mature.' I'm sure she't doing everything in her power to lose the Hermoine character ... even if that mean tarting up!

    You could write your own book: "Fifty Retellings of The Same Joke That Wasn't Funny The First Time."

    The book would be boring. But that's OK. You are boring.
