Man Crush Monday: 5 Celebs We’d Rather See in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

If you’re anything like me, then last week’s reveal of the newest Fifty Shades of Grey trailer left you feeling…underwhelmed. I don’t know about you, but after investing two weeks reading the trilogy and spending months waiting for the preview; I was kind of hoping the movie would actually live up to all the hype. But as much as I appreciate Jamie Dornan (and more importantly, those abs), I can definitely think of a few choice celebs that would do a much-better job playing the role of Christian Grey. So, in honor of Man Crush Monday, I give you five pieces of eye candy to start your week off right:

You Know You Want It (a Peek Inside Robin Thicke’s Home, That Is)

If Robin Thicke and Paula Patton were decor elements, you’d think they would be sleek marble countertops, shiny silver appliances and a minimalist white sofa, right? Wrong. So wrong.

Since Robin and Paula’s marriage has become a little blurred as of late, their Los Angeles home is now on the market for $2.985 million and was originally purchased by Alan Thicke, Robin’s father, as a wedding gift.

We’re wondering if Alan also had the house decorated, because cheerful yellow walls and a woodsy kitchen doesn’t exactly seem their style.
