NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Jennifer Love Hewitt is ready to throw her hat in the ring for the female lead in “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
“I wanna be Anastasia so badly,” “The Client List” star and executive producer told Access Hollywood’s Jill Martin on Wednesday at the Lifetime Upfronts in New York City, when Jill asked about the potential role.
The actress is a well-known “Twilight” mega-fan, so it’s no surprise that she’s joined millions in picking up the E L James bestseller, which started out as “Twilight” inspired fan fiction.
In the book, Anastasia is a young woman, who after taking over an assignment to interview eligible bachelor Christian Grey, ends up on an R-Rated journey.
“I think it would be awesome. I think it would be really, really fun,” Jennifer said of the part.
“I just started part of it,” she added, referring to the book. “And I’m saving the rest for my vacation in a month or so.”
With her “Fifty Shades…” reading on hold, Jennifer was spending Wednesday promoting “The Client List,” which just got picked up for a second season.
Speaking to Jill, Jennifer dropped some spoilers about what’s ahead in the rest of Season 1.
“We’re very close to having somebody find out what Riley does for a living, which is, you know, not good for her at all,” Jennifer smiled. “And it’s gonna be somebody really close to her, so that’s really crazy.
“There is a chance that Kyle is not gone,” she added, with a grin, referring to her character’s husband.
“The Client List” airs Sundays at 10/9c on Lifetime.
