Earlier this year, Somerhalder dismissed reports that he was set for a lead role in the upcoming film, assuring fans via Twitter that he is "not desperate" to be involved with the film.

However, at the 2012 Environmental Media Awards on Saturday (September 29), Somerhalder revealed that he understands the appeal of the book.

He told E!: "I think that's going to be a very interesting story to tell... It seems like whoever plays that role, it will be very interesting rehearsal time... the audition process is gonna be interesting."

Somerhalder did not confirm or deny whether he was up for auditioning, but when asked who he would want to play his leading lady, he answered: "My Anastasia? I don't know... there are too many [good Hollywood actors] to name."

Author EL James recently refuted claims that Ryan Gosling was the number one pick to play the lead role in the film.

Development on the 50 Shades of Grey movie continues this year.
