A UK professor at the University of Lancashire, Dr. Faye Skelton, has just created a image of what “Fifty Shades of Grey” protagonist and hottie Christian Grey should/would/hypothetically look like. Be forewarned, the image she created is probably way more uggo than the Christian in your fantasies.
Basically, some professor drafted up what looks like a police composite sketch and is passing it off as Christian Grey. Check it out here.
The composite this lady created is like a poor man’s version of Brad Pitt. This is NOT what I’m sure a lot of women think Christian Grey should look like.
In the book, Christian Grey is described as an Adonis, DNA hand checked by God, and bone structure so exact you could probably use his jaw as a cheese grater.
Dr. Skelton says she hoped the image would not “intrude on anyone’s fantasies.”
Dr. Skelton used 12 descriptions that women had given to a radio station describing what they imagined Christian to look like, apparently most of the women gave celebrity comparisons.
“While we don’t want to intrude on anyone’s fantasies,” says Skelton, “Based on a small sample of women, this is the image of Christian Grey they have in their heads when reading the novel.”
No no no no no, this isn’t what Christian is supposed to look like at all! At best, Christian is supposed to be a hybrid of Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, and Robert Pattinson. I mean, that’s what I’m imagining and I’m pretty sure it’s the best version.
The professor used brand new facial composite technology that uses a selection of multiple complete faces to create an image of a person - it’s similar to what police use in criminal sketch composites.
We've reached out to author E L James for her thoughts on the Christian Grey composite and we can't wait to see what she thinks!
