Stephenie Meyer

DISSES

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Author

Screw professional courtesy ... "Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer says she won't give E.L. James any casting advice for the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie .. because she REFUSES TO READ THE BOOK!!!

Meyer was leaving Hemmingway's in Hollywood with some friends last night when she fired the shot ... and it ain't the first time she's taken aim at the S&M-heavy trilogy.

Earlier this year, Meyer told The Guardian "50 Shades" was "too smutty" for her taste -- explaining, "Erotica is not something I read. I don't even read traditional romance."

It's unclear how E.L. feels about the diss -- but we're guessing she'd probably give Stephenie a pair of those ben wa balls and tell her to go (well, you know) herself.

Stephanie Meyer is pretty religious & anyone who has read the "Twilight" series would tell you that they are super clean.... No premarital sex & no swearing. It doesn't surprise me at all that she would have this opinion of the "50 shades" book series

I heard 50 shades was inspired by twilight. She doesn't have to read it, I haven't, but don't be a bitch Stephanie, we're all in this together.

grow up people is based in religion and porn is said to destroy families and also that kind of sexual behavior and based on her religion is not a diss and she can't suggest casting cause she won't read the book anf is not experienced in that behavior. I am a Mormon I know what she means .plus she helped making the movie of her book the host and she destroyed her book with it

Probably for the best. That woman should not give advice to anyone.

This isn't shocking. She is Mormon and they are strict. I'd be a little salty if someone took my story and made millions off of it somehow.

Stephanie Meyer should not be giving anyone advise on anything. She is a terrible writer. Actually terrible. Literally terrible. I'm surprised her books aren't written in crayon with backwards r's.

Both are terrible authors, but you should at least point out that 50 Shades of Gray started out as Twilight fan fiction. It puts the story into context.

Saying that she doesn't like the genre isn't a diss to E.L. James.

How is this "dissing" the author? She said she doesn't read erotica. If a person like to read suspense novels and not romance is that "dissing" romance writers? If a person listens to rock and not rap do you say that person is "dissing" rap? Ridiculous.
