Have you heard the rumor about Emma Watson starring in the movie version of the year's most talked-about book, Fifty Shades of Grey? Turns out, the former "Harry Potter" star isn't lined up to play Anastasia Steele after all. "I haven't read the book, I haven't a read a script, nothing," Watson, 22, told Entertainment Weekly. "There are so many movies you become attached to when I've literally never even received a phone call. It was the same way with 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' — I never even saw a script!" Watson adds that fans can't always easily tell which rumored roles she's actually taking on. "The thing is I'm not going to go out there every time someone attaches me to a film to say no or release a statement," she said.

Watson's supposed co-star in the steamy story, about a college graduate seduced by a 20something millionaire, is rumored to be everyone from Ian Somerhalder of "The Vampire Diaries," to Alexander Skarsgard of "True Blood," to Ryan Gosling. While those hotties probably aren't involved in the project either, a girl can dream, right? Two people who really are attached to the Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation (really, we swear!) are Dana Brunetti and Michael De Luca, who have signed on to produce the movie. The two of them also worked on 2010's "The Social Network," based on the story of Facebook.

While fans are undoubtedly disappointed Watson won't be taking on the sexy role in "Grey" — at least not yet — one person is probably relieved: her boyfriend, felllow Brown University student Will Adamowicz! However, Watson has plenty of other roles coming up. Her romantic drama "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" comes out September 20, and Seth Rogen comedy "The End of the World" and director Sofia Coppola's drama "The Bling Ring" are out next year.
