An Open Letter To Lisa Wilkinson Over Slammed Fifty Shades Of Grey Review

Tags: Fifty Shades of Grey, Lisa Wilkinson

Last week, Lisa Wilkinson absolutely slammed the new 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' movie - saying it was "two hours of complete drivel."

But after seeing the movie, Scoopla reporter and Sea FM Gold Coast announcer Bella Frizza felt very different and had this to say in an open letter to the TODAY Show host.


"Dear Lisa Wilkinson,

Don’t get me wrong, I love you.  You are one of my idols, but I strongly disagree with your review on 50 Shades of Grey.

Let’s get the obvious out of the way first: Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey. And this ‘not-hot-enough- to-be-Christian-Grey-psycho-babble I have been hearing.

STOP IT! He is so HOT! He has this sexy but real allure to him. Those chiselled features make him the perfect mixture of cute and sexy with a hint of mystery. I can see why Anastacia found him so alluring, and if that was me sitting opposite him in that office of his I probably wouldn’t be able to talk let alone ask him if he was gay (LOL).

I am confused as to how some women who have seen the movie don’t think he’s hot enough? Have you had Jamie Dornan in your bed or a look-a-like? Because if you know someone hotter please pass his number onto me!

And then we have the ‘Playroom’ which is the main reason women are up in arms across the globe.  I kind of get why women are jumping on their sassy horse and reining in on womens rights. But we all know if we consent to something happening, we agree to it.

Which is exactly what Anastacia did with Christian Grey.  Things got pretty heated in the scene where he belts her but she ASKED for him to.  To understand him more, and then she took a stand and decided that she didn’t want it.

I think a lot of us are missing the point here. Like this is fan fiction.  Bella and Edward falling for each other even though they are completely different species.  How does this differ from movies that we grew up with like Beauty and the Beast?  Could we call Cinderella slave labour then?  It’s the same concept.  Minus the out-there playroom.

To sum it up 50 Shades of Grey is passion, sex, seduction, mystery and a guy who can’t keep his hands off his chick.  Isn’t that what we all want in relationships in 2015?"
