Scientists Identify Christian Grey

by Intern Ariana

50 Shades of Grey. It’s everywhere, including (probably) on your mom’s bedside table. And while everyone is talking about the series and hungrily flipping through its pages, they’re usually trying to figure one thing out: what does hunky perv Christian Grey look like?

Well, apparently UK scientists have a lot of time on their hands and love BDSM, because they’re plagued by the same question. And one scientist has come up with the answer. 

Yep, that’s the face of Mr. Grey, according to Dr. Faye Skelton of University of Central Lancashire. Dr. Skelton used interviews with 12 Grey fans to come up with the sketch, which was produced with software used to catch criminals. I guess Grey could be considered a criminal, since he steals hearts wherever he goes. (Ba-dum CRASH.)

Our dominance-loving leading man has Patrick Dempsey’s eyes, Brad Pitt’s jawline, Val Kilmer’s lips and the traits of 9 other Hollywood hunks. Getting all those fine features from one actor will be pretty difficult once casting begins for the film adaptation. 

If you’re a fan of the series, does this version of Grey fit what you imagined?
