Fifty Shades Darker : Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

Kim always came off as playing such innocent characters to me, and has a real good girl look about her.

If they got someone like Sharon Stone, Sigourney Weaver, Linda Fiorentino, or someone like that, I thought it would be a better choice.

What do you think?

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

Have to wait and see..

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

Were there any pictures taken of Kim Bassinger on set?

None that I saw...I should edit this...none that I saw of her in character...there were a few of her, looking like her.

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

When reading the books, before anything was done on screen, I always pictured Michelle Pfiefer in the role as Elena. But, I'm very curious to see how Kim Basinger portrays here.

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

Really...Kim at 63, is a little old to be playing Elena..and Michelle is 58..Christian was 15, so I would assume Elena would have been middle 30's..add 12 years..Christian 27, almost 28..Elena, a well preserved 47.

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

I suggested Sigourney Weaver and she is 67. But the character is suppose to be old while Christian is an adult. But I think it's okay to make the character a little older, since Sigourney Weaver would be worth it, since she is a good choice, at least IMO.

Kim will be portraying Elena in her 40s, she can just about pull it off i reckon!

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

Dr. Flynn is married with young twins....I see him maybe 10 years older than Christian...so 38..40..Hugh is 41....Jamie is 33...and he is supposed to be 28 in the second book.

Michelle Pfeiffer was my hoped for hire as Elena. One of my favorite Michelle movies, dark/depressing but underrated White Oleander. If she had brought some of that intensity?, still look forward to this movie and try not to "it should have been" after the fact. Eric Johnson from The Knick, good casting.

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

Kim Basinger as she was in White Oleandr was my thought as well.

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

You mean Michelle in White Oleander?

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

I also pictured Michelle Pfeiffer as Elena. I think she would've been the perfect choice!

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

Kim is a good actress she can pull off the part acting-wise. But Elena is 40 and Kim is 63, I mean that's a 23 year age gap. Couldn't they find a gorgeous 40 year old blonde actress in all of Hollywood? I'm surprised by her casting.

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

No because most of us in our 40's look like we are in our late 20's/early 30's. I think they wanted to contrast the age difference.

I think Kim is absolutely perfect for the role!

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

I think its a great idea to have Kim in this film it will be like a nice homage to 9 1/2 weeks and means she approved the unofficial remake of that film similar to Faye Dunaway getting a small part in the 90s version of the Thomas Crown affair.

What makes you think that?

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

I had initially thought Sharon Stone would have been good, and suggested her in another thread on the subject. Another actress I think would fit is Connie Nielsen, she's 51 in real life.

Kim Basinger used to be a very sexy and pretty lady, but I watched a brief scene of her in the trailer and I thought she looked weird, like if she had a problem with botox or something..Her face looked really weird, I did not like it..

I dont think she matches for the role, maybe 10 years before, but now she looks tired and bored, at least in that scene she did not look good considering she was a sex bomb..

I had imagined someone like the actress Gail O'Grady, I think she is a mature woman and really attractive and sexy, just like the one portrayed in the book.She gives the image of a business woman, serious ,mysterious and sexy.

Re: Do you think Kim Basinger was not the best for Elena?

I dont think Kim was the best choice. I thought Elizabeth Hurley would have been perfect for the role.
