'Fifty Shades of Grey' author E.L. James has been speaking about her meetings with Rita Ora, who is to appear in the film adaptation of her novel, insisting she is "incredibly sexy"

Rita Ora is "incredibly sexy", according to E.L. James.

The 'I Will Never Let You Down' hitmaker is set to make her acting debut in the upcoming film adaptation of James' erotic novel 'Fifty Shades of Grey' and is said to have been spending a lot of time with the author while shooting the film in Canada.

The 51-year-old writer told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "She [Rita] is incredibly sexy and has this amazing charisma about her.

"When we were filming in Toronto we had a few nights out.

"We didn't drink each other under the table but we did match each other.

"Neither of us had to be put in a taxi home but some other people did."

James - who has also penned follow-up books 'Fifty Shades Freed' and 'Fifty Shades Darker' - hopes Ora will go on to have a successful acting career in addition to her music following her role in the film.

She added: "I think she'll be in a lot more movies."

Male model Jamie Dornan stars as wealthy billionaire Christian Grey alongside Dakota Johnson as his student lover Anastasia Steele in the highly anticipated big-screen remake, while Ora takes on the role of Grey's sister Mia.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' is scheduled for release on Valentine's Day, February 14, 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.
