While visiting The Today Show on April 17, bestselling author E.L. James dished about her hot new novel, Fifty Shades of Grey. Though the sexy story doesn’t include any vampires, E.L. used Robert Pattinson‘s and Kristen Stewart‘s Twilight characters as inspiration for the erotic book series!
James’ super-sexual versions of Bella Swan and Edward Cullen include Christian Grey, a billionaire, who gets involved in an dominant-submissive romance with innocent beauty, Anatasia Steele — sound familiar? While fans can’t get enough of the steamy romance, James feels this type of relationship is only attractive on paper.
“I think in real life it’s very different. You want someone who does the dishes,” she laughed.
“You’re in charge of your job, house, you’re in charge of your children, you’re in charge of getting food on the table,” James explained on the morning show. “Doing all this all of the time, you might want someone to be in charge some of the time.”
While writing the racy novels, the Twilight-fanatic also admits she was going through a “mid-life crisis” and she definitely wasn’t shy about sharing her sexual fantasies with the world – clearly, she spent a lot of time fantasizing about Rob and Kristen!
