With the Fifty Shades of Grey film finally securing a director last week, casting rumours are hotting up, who will play kinky lovers Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele? There's been a long line of beauties linked to the role of Ana but the latest odds are putting Alexis Bledel and Mila Kunis at the top of the list.
Gilmore Girls star Alexis has long been associated with the coveted part, with fans of the pretty 31-year-old even making a mock trailer online starring their idol. The latest odds from William Hill reveal today that Alexis is still favourite to score the part, with odds of 2/1.
That's despite the fact that the actress appeared to know nothing of the casting rumours earlier this year, insisting to Wetpaint in April:
"I have no idea! You know, I really don’t know a lot about it except that fans have made a trailer online. I know as much as you know. I’ve seen what you’ve seen, and I’ve probably had a similar reaction to yours!"

Alexis could have some competition for the part in the form of Mila Kunis who William Hill have placed at second favourite with odds of 9/2. A bigger name than Alexis, Mila could be the star draw the film needs but just like the Gilmore Girl, Ashton Kutcher's girl seems reluctant to spill any secrets.
When asked by EntertainmentWise about the possibility of starring in the big screen adaptation at the press conference for her movie Oz the Great and Powerful she told us: "Ah this Fifty Shades of Grey thing’s just not gonna leave is it?"
Just behind Mila in the betting odds is Emma Watson at 6/1, who has already rubbished the claims on Twitter. Perhaps Les Miserable stars Anne Hathaway (at 8/1) or Amanda Seyfried (10/1) will be more interested?

William Hill also place Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence (12/1) among their favourites as well as Kristen Stewart (14/1), Selena Gomez (25/1), Rihanna (25/1) and Miley Cyrus (33/1)
Katie Price and Dame Judi Dench can probably give up hope of a role in Sam Taylor Johnson's adaptation though with the bookmakers placing them at the bottom of the list!
Meanwhile there's been speculation today that Robert Pattinson could be up for Ana's love interest Christian. Whilst RPatz's ex love Kristen is on the favourites shortlist for Ana, Rob sparked speculation of his involvement by inviting Fifty Shades author E.L. James to a party he was hosting at his home over the weekend...
