Lutz was asked directly about the casting rumours while speaking to Parade.

"I've been hearing about that! I haven't read the books; I need to though," he admitted. "The fans saw similarities between Emmett and Elliot. I don't know much about either."

Lutz also discussed why he'd prefer to play Elliot over the much-coveted lead role of Christian Grey.

"I know Christian is the lead but that's why I didn't want to play Edward [in Twilight]," the star said. "He wasn't really like me. I'll trust the fans."

Josh Holloway, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Gosling and Matt Bomer are among the actors linked to playing Christian Grey.

Justin Bieber also recently quipped that he had been approached to appear in Fifty Shades of Grey.
