Having your significant other direct you in a racy movie called "50 Shades of Grey" might be awkward to some, but Aaron Taylor-Johnson wouldn't mind it.
The "Kick-Ass 2" star is married to the adaptation's director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, and he told CNN that he'd "love" to work with his wife again after they collaborated on 2009's "Nowhere Boy."
"I’d love to work with Sam again, no question, without a doubt," Taylor-Johnson said. "I think she’s such an incredible director and she’s got such an incredible vision. And especially for something like this (which) she can do - no pun intended - with her hands tied behind her back and blindfolded."
But - and you knew there was a "but" coming, didn't you? (again, no puns here!) - the 23-year-old just doesn't think he can pull off portraying a wealthy young bachelor with an S&M streak.
"For me, Christian Grey - I just don’t fit the bill for Christian Grey, you know?" Taylor-Johnson said.
