The notorious erotic romance novel Fifty Shades of Grey by the now-famous British author E. L. James, quickly became the guilty pleasure read by millions of people around the globe. The scandalous novel even became a hit feature film which was a major box-office hit. Most notable for its explicit sex scenes featuring S&M, BDSM and dominance / submission, the Fifty Shades trilogy follows the relationship between young and innocent college graduate Anastasia Steele, and dominant business tycoon Christian Grey. The sexuality in the book between Anastasia and Mr. Grey is so outrageous that many hooked readers attempt to hide their obsession with Fifty Shades and are afraid to admit how much they actually love reading it. This of course includes many celebrities. Below are 12 celebs who can’t hide their obsession with Fifty Shades of Grey, some of whom you’d never expect an erotic obsession from:
12 Kim Kardashian
11 Ryan Seacrest
10 Victoria Beckham
Busy mothers really value their downtime, and what better way is there to spend your downtime than losing yourself in Fifty Shades of Grey for a couple hours? Victoria Beckham, former Spice Girl and wife of soccer star David Beckham, confessed that she has loved reading the E. L. James trilogy. Posh Spice told Glamour Magazine: 'I'm halfway through the second one. I even bought my mum the book! But every time she tries to engage in conversation about it, I kind of dodge the subject.”
9 Eva Longoria
8 Shay Mitchell
Pretty Little Liars star and Canadian model Shay Mitchell, confessed that she has read the Fifty Shades of Grey Books and told MTV that to her, the books are like candy: “Fifty Shades of Grey is like candy. Bad junk food. But it’s good. But it’s bad junk food.” That’s Shay Mitchell’s way of admitting she’s addicted to the erotic trilogy, but hey – who can blame her? Plus, it's no surprise that Shay's got an edge - she went sky-diving once to get over an ex-boyfriend!
7 Ashley Benson
Another Pretty Little Liars star, Ashley Benson surprisingly stated that she not only loves the Fifty Shades of Grey books, but she also desperately wanted to be cast as Anastasia in the film adaptation. Benson told Celebuzz: “I’ve read every book. I want to play Anastasia,” and when asked if she’d consider playing the character of Kate instead, she replied “Kate is awesome. I like all the characters but Anastasia? I love her so much!” Benson definitely could have been a great Anastasia. She's got the innocent face perfected, and she could certainly have died her hair brown!

4 Whitney Port
The Hills and The City star Whitney Port confessed that she absolutely loves Fifty Shades. She shared a picture of herself reading. She wrote, "Entranced in 50 Shades of Grey. Geez!" The E. L.
