Cara Delevingne has not landed the kinky role of leading lady Anastasia Steele in the big screen adaptation of E.L. James 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Cara Delevingne has reportedly missed out on the lead role in the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' movie.

The 21-year-old model - who made her movie debut as Princess Sorokina in 2012 romantic drama 'Anna Karenina' - auditioned for the kinky role of Anastasia Steele in June, but has been turned down.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "The lead role was not something that was offered."

Although she won't play the protagonist character, the stunning model may still be offered a supporting part in the Sam Taylor-Johnson-directed movie.

'Game of Thrones' beauty Emilia Clarke and little-known actress Dakota Johnson are the frontrunners to play virginal Anastasia in Universal's big screen adaptation of E.L. James' best-selling book. Meanwhile, 'Pacific Rim' hunk Charlie Hunnam is reportedly the top choice to play bondage-loving Christian Grey.

Cara was recently cast as a party girl in British flick 'Kids in Love', a drama about a group of teenagers who enjoy crazy nights out in London, boozing till the early hours of the morning, and taking drugs.

A source said: "It will be Cara's first big screen role, so she's really excited about it and is eager to make sure that she does a good job."

Fifty Shades of Grey

  • 3 stars

  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle
  • UK release: 13 February 2015

Despite its troubling gender politics and distinct lack of plot, the likeable Johnson brings nuance and charm to a paper-thin character; Dornan manages to offer a hint of humanity; and given the many constraints, this sleek, fairly trim and occasionally sensual adaptation is the best imaginable outcome.
