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.

Ugh. They both suck. I'm crossing my fingers that none of my favourite actors agree to be in the 50 Shades of Grey movie(s).

YOU GO STEPHANIE MEYERS!!! Her books are geared towards kids, teens and young adults who love good old fashioned romance mixed with horror. The vampires and werewolves in her books primarily operate according to a "STRUCTURED CODE" similar to the Mafia which makes them intriguing. E.L. James peddles "SOFT PORN" in which she attempts to introduce "romantic" elements. These ladies have two entirely different fan bases. Ms. Meyers just isn't into the fantasy E.L. James is peddling -- PERIOD -- WHICH ISN'T A CRIME!!! It's simply a matter of "PERSONAL TASTE"!!!

Good for her. Can't understand why this book has been all the craze with women. It's straight trashy.

I wonder how much $ the church made off of her books? Everyone loves vampires in the celestial kingdom, right?

She's LDS... What a stupid ass question. Mormons don't read sex novels. That's not a diss, it's simply personal preference. Might as well have asked her if shell be giving Hugh Hef advice on his next casted girlfriend. Just dumb!

Im sure the insult would've hurt had it come from a legit author and not some lady whose sole reputation is based on one good movie from one REALLY bad book. I read like two or three pages of twilight and refused to read anymore for the extreme lack of setting, position, description, and interest. A writer needs these basic ingredients to make a good meal, but how can her simple peanut butter samich be eaten without bread? No thank you Meyer...no thank you.

50 shades of grey was too similar to twilight. I found myself drawing comparisons the entire time.

I guess, these two utterly overrated 'authors' will be dissing each other as long as people will listen, just to promote their crap writings as much as possible...
