‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ as read by the cast of ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ (Video)


Chris Hemsworth and Kristen Stewart: “Fifty Shades of Grey” converts? (Ben Pruchnie - GETTY IMAGES)

MTV correspondent Josh Horowitz is known for his clever celebrity interview gimmicks. He’s the same guy who convinced Ryan Gosling to crack himself up while reading examples of his own meme (twice!), and who engaged in a round of “Would you rather?” with Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd.

But with his latest clip from the “Snow White and the Huntsman” junket, he’s come up with the ultimate concept: forcing famous actors to read passages from “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

Kristen Stewart — a woman whose “Twilight” character inspired the fan fiction that ultimately became the most celebrated piece of S&M-filled fiction in the history of erotic literature — can barely get through E.L. James’s prose without exhaling in befuddled disgust. But that befuddled disgust very quickly turns to pleasure. (“‘I push him on the bed’ — oh wow,” she exclaims.)

During the video, Horowitz also manages to embarrass Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and to be grabbed in an aggressive, vaguely sexual manner by Charlize Theron. Which, let’s be honest, was probably what he was hoping for. So well done, Horowitz.

Here’s the clip, which also allows Stewart to share her feelings about seeing people on airplanes reading “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
