Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan had incredible success together in Fifty Shades of Grey - and might we add that the two are incredibly good-looking human beings - but did they have incredible chemistry? That's up for debate. Who would have had better on-screen heat? Well, check out these other talented folks that were considered for the roles of Anastasia Steele and Christina Grey and tell us who you would have preferred to watch get all hot-and-bothered.
I wonder just how different the film would have been had another couple been cast as these steamy, sexy characters...
1. Shailene Woodley
Shailene's Divergent schedule conflicted greatly, but she did say that she "wasn't afraid of the nudity in the film's explicit sex scenes."
2. Elizabeth Olsen
Olsen was considered for the role, but for some reason it didn't pan out. She is stunning, as well as an incredible actress, so I know she could have been phenomenal in the role.
3. Felicity Jones
She may not look it, but Jones is 30 years old. She therefore felt she might have been too old to play a college student.
4. Emilia Clarke
Emilia Clarke is no stranger to nudity, but even so, the nudity in Fifty Shades of Grey was the main reason Clarke turned the role down. After so much of it in Game of Thrones, Clarke had to say that enough is enough.
5. Charlie Hunnam
Hunnam was ready to bare it all, but due to scheduling issues, had to drop out. If Sons of Anarchy was any indication of what might have been, the incredible ass, back, and abs shots would have been Oscar-worthy thanks to this stud.
6. Ryan Gosling
Gosling was supposedly a top pick for the 27-year-old billionaire, but he immediately turned it down. I have to admit, Gosling is one of my Hollywood crushes, and would have been too sexy to handle, which is just the perfect amount of sexiness.
7. Garrett Hedlund
Garrett passed because he felt he really couldn't connect with the character, even though Universal had courted him for a while.
8. Robert Pattinson
Robert was actually first choice for Christian Grey, but I can't imagine him wanting to jump from one romantic franchise to the next. Sometimes, it gets old being so hot.
Ultimately, Johnson and Dorian were the ones picked for the perfect looking couple - and boy, were they - so we weren't disappointed with the eye-candy action at all in the end.
Fifty Shades Darker won't be released until February of 2017, but until then we have plenty of sensual gifs from the first film to flip through to prepare us for what's next.
