This book made waves overseas. The movie is all Nigerians were interested in since Nigerians don’t really like reading. Apart from the captivating story and romantic lines, we all fell in love with dreamy actors Christian and Ana who put up a hundred percent performance of love in its biggest and most erotic form. Loved this book? Or the movie?
Here’s eight things you didn’t know about this book/movie:
- The author E. L. James wrote this book during her “mid life crisis”. She said it contains all her fantasies. Probably why there’s a lot of steamy scenes.
- Fifty shades of grey is the first in its trilogy. The second and third book are ‘Fifty shades darker’ and Fifty shades freed.’
- The author released a fourth book written from the perspective of the hero, titled ‘Grey: Fifty shades of grey as told by Christian’.
- These books earned her 95 million dollars, making her one of Forbes top highest earning authors.
- The movies ‘Fifty shades of grey’ earned over 569 million dollars worldwide, making it the sixth highest grossing film in 2015.
- Despite its success, the book and movie has received terrible, terrible and terrible reviews worldwide.
- A pornographic film company announced its intent to film a pornographic version of the book in 2012. (the movie itself can be said to be one if you know what I mean).
- The Second movie, Fifty Shades Darker is set to be released February 9, 2017. (Very soon, fellow fifty lovers.)
Recently, this news caught my interest. A South African Woman has been sentenced to 10 years imprisonment for kidnapping a new born baby and raising the baby as her own child since 1997.
So for nearly twenty years, she has been the mother of somebody’s else’s baby.
The baby’s real parents found their missing daughter after their second daughter befriended a girl in school that bore a striking resemblance to her and a DNA test confirmed that the daughter’s friend was actually their first kidnapped daughter.
Stories that touch. If this were you, what would you do?
Thomas Gibson who plays Aaron Hotchner in the show Criminal Minds has been kicked off the show after a two week suspension for kicking a writer during an episode production.
Aaron Hotchner has been the dreamy, cute but serious detective that has thrilled the heart of numerous fans including me. How can I continue to watch Criminal Minds without his face in it? How will fans react to this when me am here panicking?
What is it with Hollywood stars getting kicked off set for abuses? Years ago, Isaiah Washington who played a doctor in the hit show ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ was fired for homophobic attacks. Then they stopped producing Kyle XY. After that, Game of Thrones almost gave us heart attack when they killed John Snow. Thank their stars he was brought back to life. Now it’s Thomas Gibson.
While I applaud Hollywood for taking a stand against hot-headed arrogant stars, I’m also pleading with my favorite stars to avoid getting kicked off shows that I love.
