Chris Pine has ruled himself out of playing Christian Grey in a big screen adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.
The actor is just one of the names that is being banded around to play the central role in the big screen adaptation of the smash hit novel.
Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno the actor says the only reason he knows about the book is that all the women he knows seem to have read it.
"Look, I was on a red carpet in Las Vegas, and someone asked me and the only reason I knew about it is that every woman in my life has read this trilogy... And I said yeah sure, if it comes around, blah blah blah as you do."
But when pushed by Leno on whether or not he would take on the role Pine said "I'm not doing it, no."
And while Pine won't be starring in Fifty Shades Of Grey he will be back on the big screen later this year with his new movie People Like Us, which sees him star alongside Elizabeth Banks.
The actor has also completed shooting on the Star Trek sequel where he will reprise the role of James T. Kirk.
The movie is directed by JJ Abrams and is set to hit the big screen next year.
