E L James: ‘I’m Not a Pervert’
Posted by Adam
AUTHOR E L James is no pervert!
The scribe — who penned the best-selling Fifty Shades series — a trilogy that introduced the controversial BDSM (bondage, discipline, sadism and masochism) lifestyle to much of the nation — insists she is a far cry from the sultry characters she’s created.
When asked about the sexual relationship that made the Fifty Shades series bedroom fodder for many at Monday’s Fifty Shades of Grey: The Classical Album event at Manhattan’s Soho House, James politely declined.
“I don’t want to comment on that,” she said.
When asked about the film adaption currently in the works, the author had plenty to say.
“All this has been a huge shock to me. When I got the first email asking about the film rights, I nearly fell off my chair; it was a huge Hollywood agency!” she said.
“The books are my fantasy. I wrote them for me, really, and the wonderful thing about doing this is they seem to be other peoples’ fantasies, so I’m not such a pervert.”
