Could the image above be what Fifty Shades of Grey hero Christian Grey looks like? British professor Dr. Faye Skelton, of the University of Central Lancashire, thinks so. Using female readers’ descriptions of the character in the novel, she created a scientific photo composite using police software that might show us exactly how handsome Grey is. If he were real, that is.
Skelton plucked choice features from Hollywood’s hottest men to create Grey’s image, according to the The Hollywood Reporter:
Skelton cobbled together hair from Channing Tatum and Brad Pitt, the new face of Chanel,, eyes from Patrick Dempsey, Johnny Depp, recently named the CFDA’s 2012 Fashion Icon, the face shape of Armani underwear poster boy David Beckham, a nose like Chris Hemsworth, Beckham and Pitt’s jawlines, and finally, and inexplicably, Val Kilmer’s lips.
We definitely see the Kilmer influence in the sketch. But why do this at all? For fun, we guess?
Dr. Skelton told the Daily Mail: “While we don’t want to intrude on anyone’s fantasies, based on a small sample of women, this is the image of Christian Grey they have in their heads when reading the novels. Personally, I think he’s quite handsome, although everyone’s interpretation will be different.”
Casting for the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie hasn’t been nailed down yet. But let it be known that we are rooting for Michael Fassbender to play the sexy tycoon. Meow!
