Christian Grey Composite Sketch Reveals ’50 Shades of Grey’ Hero’s Rugged, Rapisty Looks

christian grey composite sketch

The Christian Grey composite sketch might — if you, like me, have not read the viral hit mommy porn book 50 Shades of Grey — put you off your millionaire dom fantasies.

The Christian Grey composite was meant to give women a face to put to the description of a male lead in book, the likes of which has not been revered since just before Robert Pattinson gave Edward Cullen a solid visual for Twilight fans everywhere. (And of course, it bears mentioning that the BDSM-light saga that is the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy actually began its life as a Twilight fanfic — so female fans really are serious about digging on the slightly older, creepy and predatory dude romantic lead.)

So perhaps the Christian Grey composite sketch won’t be all that creepy to fans of the book who, let’s face it, don’t seem to have very much of a problem at all with creepy. Of course, the problem is, many of us associate composite sketches — culled from one or many verbal descriptions of a person’s appearance — with criminals, murderers and molesters. You know, like a 100+ years old dude who decides to still hang out in high school all the time.

The Christian Grey composite was based upon the descriptions of a handful of women who’d read the book, and their impressions of what Christian Grey might look like. Interestingly, it appears that readers of the book are about as derivative as its writer — the 12 women Dr. Faye Skelton of the University of Central Lancashire in England consulted to create the sketch used famous faces like Brad Pitt, Patrick Dempsey, Channing Tatum, David Beckham and Johnny Depp to craft the Christian Grey composite.

So, pic above — does this Christian Grey composite match the billionaire hottie in your head, or do you too just think he looks like a bargain basement Kirk Cameron?

    No way! this is nothing like I pictured him….do better!

  2. Monica Aden Caldwell

    Oh I agree! That's not the picture of him I've. Got in my head either. Not even close!

  3. Melissa Lewis Wallace

    EWWWWWWWW! That's gross! Not my Christian I pictured in my head! This picture looks like a serial killer to me!

  4. Maggie Hamberger

    I vote for Ryan Gosling…he has a dark, sultry look to him.

  5. Karissa Diomampo

    I pictured Matt Bomer- this picture isn't even close.

  6. Melissa Lewis Wallace

    I think that they should make it an HBO series! No holds bared! I am a True Blood fan. I have read the books. So How in the hell are they gonna make 50 into a movie?

  7. Melissa Lewis Wallace

    It makes Christian look like a child molester! lol

  8. Anonymous

    Melissa Lewis Wallace I completely agree? How ARE they going to make it into a movie?? It will have to be an NC-17 rating, I would have to imagine, right??
    Plus, to get me through the book, I picture Ryan Gosling as Mr. Grey. LOL!

  9. Colitha Henderson

    LOL :)) at all the comments! Yeah, that's not what I pictured him 2 be at all either! That cute or sexy enough! The Christian in my head has these amazing eyes that grabs u instantly, this beautiful hair that makes u want 2 run your fingers through it, & a face that you'll want 2 stare at all day! That guys looks like he was just released from the pen LOL.

  10. Melissa Lewis Wallace

    Yep Nc-17 sounds right! We all keep wondering who is gonna be Christian & Ana. I want unknowns! That will give us all a BIG suprize:)

  11. Rachel Valens

    looks like a mug shot to me. actually scared me a bit. haha. I pictured ian somerhalder as christian the whole time.

  12. Amy Cisneroz

    Mouth and nose are different for me……good try though.

  14. Dena Hoskins

    Um…the Christian Grey I pictured was far more dashing that this rough looking guy. I don't find that drawing appealing in the least, and if there was a film adaptation I would PRAY Hollywood could find a sexier stand in…..like a young Brad Pitt in his "Meet Joe Black" days.

  15. Stacy Avary

    I really can't say what Christian would look like. I could only read 5 pages before I gave up. The picture is horrid, BTW.

  16. Charity Immel

    Oh, this is horrible – now I don't think I can even finish the third book because of that awful composite that will be forever stuck in my head! This is wow-bad and so off base.

  17. Denise Ratcliff-Kennedy

    I don't see how they can make it into a decent movie — I think too much would have to be left out. Have to agree that it would be much better as a series or even mini-series on a channel like HBO. I don't think it would have to be NC-17 since so much is talk. (I haven't read book 3 yet, so no spoilers, please). ;)

  18. Jaelynne Richardson

    In my opinion, I expected him to be a lot hotter with a little longer hair that one could run their hands through. Although, I do feel like EL James wrote a character no one could draw or cast appropriately.

  19. Jolie Fritz

    Totally…that is what I thought…of course younger and less bloated! Not at all how I pictured Christian. I thought of him as more of a younger Christian Bale!

  20. Charity Immel

    I agree, but once you start reading it – it's like a slow motion train wreck you have to watch. It isn't sexy at all and this is probably why I stick to more educational literature! But I read one now I have to read them all! The composite really is terrible, though!

  21. Kem Mitchell

    ummm nope not even close to what I have in my head.

  22. Charity Immel

    And is it just me or was anyone one else picturing his character as being older than 27???

  24. Janet O'Toole

    I struggled through the first half of book 1. 2 is "sweeter" and I have to say it beats 3 which I am now on but I keep hearing it's good so I'm doing my best to muddle through. I think you'll like it. It made me blush 50 shades of red!

  25. Staci Prewitt

    This picture IS creepy for sure and not at all how I pictured Mr Grey! In my head he was Justin Timberlake or Ryan Phillipe-no question. Also, I have read the first and second book, waiting on the third (my friend is a slow reader) and at NO point did it cross my mind to critique the writing LOL. Sorry-I had other things on my mind, like where can I find this Christian Grey and what I would do once I found him ;) That said I LOVE LOVE LOVE Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt but I don't think either fit the profile of our sexy sadist…just sayin'.

  26. Katherine Fortier

    No No no no, not at all. Hated the books for some reason (I'll admit, still read them) but I feel a better picture was painted in the characters. Henry Cavill for sure or anyone capable of a creepier mysterious/sad eye central. Anastasia annoys me too. I have no idea who would play her. Both just seem annoyingly desperate. I look forward to what they come up with:)

    UGGHHHH NO – this is NOT the Christian Grey I have in my head either! This sketch looks like a serial killer. WAY off base! This guy is closer to my vision : http://images.search.yahoo.com/images/view;_ylt=A0PDoVzqBv1P0CcAhGGJzbkF;_ylu=X3oDMTBlMTQ4cGxyBHNlYwNzcgRzbGsDaW1n?back=http%3A%2F%2Fimages.search.yahoo.com%2Fsearch%2Fimages%3Fp%3Dgorgeous%2Bmen%26fr%3Dyfp-t-701%26fr2%3Dpiv-web%26tab%3Dorganic%26ri%3D536&w=528&h=640&imgurl=photospictures.org%2Fdata%2Fmedia%2F24%2F2011_men_hairstyle.jpg&rurl=http%3A%2F%2Fphotospictures.org%2Fr-2011-men-hairstyle-222.htm&size=80.8+KB&name=2011+men+hairstyle%2C+2011+men%26%2339%3Bs+hair+style&p=gorgeous+men&oid=1ce149e81f1b6cc5f1af5beb764ee8ee&fr2=piv-web&fr=yfp-t-701&tt=2011%2Bmen%2Bhairstyle%252C%2B2011%2Bmen%2526%252339%253Bs%2Bhair%2Bstyle&b=511&ni=144&no=536&ts=&tab=organic&sigr=11mg6rkub&sigb=13742vqi2&sigi=11n1ver09&.crumb=2KcfaDVDcW/.

  28. Katherine Fortier

    And is it me or does this picture look like an old red head who just got arrested for molesting his younger step sister? hmmm We will see….

  29. Charity Immel

    Well it definitely is not my usual reading – I was 50 shades of red, too, but I was angry, lol the second book is better and I like the tidbits of psychology intertwined. I am about to download book three this weekend so I will find out soon enough. Most of it is predictable and that irritates me! I think the composite looks like that Duchovney guy from x-files back in the day, LOL

  30. Candi Hardin

    definitely a man sketched this. a woman would be able to do it right. this guy just looks creepy.

  31. Catherine Lynn

    why does he look like val kilmer? i totally wouldn't throw it to this dude. I have a mental image of Edward from Twilight and Mr. Big from Sex & The City LOL

  32. Anonymous

    UGGHHHH NO, not even close – this sketch is NOT the Christian Grey in my head! He looks like a serial killer! I imagine someone like a young OLIVIER MARTINEZ – hot hot hot! or maybe Josh Holloway, Theo Theodoridis, William Levy – any of those will do! ;)

  33. Tabbetha Stamps

    wow…that sketch is not my interpretation of Christian….Curly, unruly, red hair, gorgeous face, great body, etc…..try again ladies…..

  34. Philip Luque

    LOL Mommy porn! All the girls at work were reading that too.

  35. Minda Atencia Fraser

    That sketch IS – Val Kilmer! Hilarious! – I actually pictured Christian to be more wormy and EMO. I can't stand the character! But I'm still reading!

  36. Kjerstun Prybycien

    LAME and not even close…idk who wrote this garbage but I happen to know the author and read the original version of this story WAY before the mainsteam ever heard of it it was written by E.L under the name I.C DRAGON and it was called MAN OF THE UNIVERSE and srry to bust everyones bubble but Mr. Grey was COMPLETELY modeled after ROB PATTINSON the story was originally a Bella/Edward fanfic so if he doesn't look like "edward" then its WRONG.

    I was thinking Christian Bale in American Psycho, too!!

    Eeew. What the hell am I looking at? U sure those women read the book?

  40. Carrie Slezak

    Hello Christian Grey is 27 not 40's & 50's someone like Chris pine or Ian Somerhalder is whay more suited for the sexy role.. not some old fart from the 80's.

    I think ben afflak should be christian.
    its going to be all in the eyes but that setch is kinds kreepy.

  42. Kelly Turner

    this sketch ruined it for me — this guy just looks plain creepy! I had in mind someone like bradley cooper. Val Kilmer is way too old to play Christian.

    grovehl ……I picture Ryan Gosling too!!!!!!!!!! He is MY Christian Grey for sure!!!! =)

  45. Rachelle Orosa

    No way! The composite above is not at all how I pictured Christian. Thinking more dark and mysterious. Colin Egglesfield "The Client List" "Something Borrowed" is the perfect choice. If you're going more Hollywood A-lister, then I would say Ryan Gosling. His physical traits may not be perfect, but his acting would be phenomenal.

    VAl Kilmer definitly NOT my 50 shades! My 50 shades is Jensan Akles. YUMMY!

  48. Cori Brennen

    I'm starting to think they shouldn't do a movie adaptation of this. First of all, they could never pick an actor to make everyone swoon enough to satisfy the loins, and secondly, it would have to be rated with so many X's that no respectable theatre could show it. Eh. Guess I'll not look at the face and go to the shady theatre then…

  49. Nina Cisnero

    Ok Ok Ok, This is not the guy I pictured reading the Books… I have Armie Hammer in my mind as Christian Grey, he would be so perfect for the role. The voice and his sophistication…..

  50. Dannella Nelson

    From what i hear they are supposed to be making a movie. My thought was exactly like yours. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX to the max!!!! They would have to tone it down quite a bit in order for it to be just an R rating.

  72. Roxanne Willaman-Chapman

    Just because I am a fan of the book doesn't make me "creepy"! The author of the article should try doing her research and READ THE BOOK before trying to write an article about it! Seriously!

  73. Susan Cea

    Nothing at ALL to what I pictured in my head…that dude in the sketch is fugly! I pictured someone like Chris Pine or Ian Somerhalder or even Kellan Lutz. But not that creepy looking dude in that drawing. He looks like a serial killer HAHAHA!

  74. Nancy Travis Conner ت

    LOL! Well, this IS a composite sketch, from the description of the character. Just because he isn't what other readers have pictured, doesn't mean it's not a fair representation of CG. And the creepy vibe totally fits. I mean seriously, he is a creepy dude!

    While I completely, agree with your statement, Mr.grey comes in all shape n sizes. And although he's portrayed as a handsome devil. I've had my Mr. grey. N when its like that its like that.

  83. Keri Johnson

    Ian Somerhalder…that's who I think should play him. and I haven't even read the books! lol Ian is cute AND has that dark side to him. Robert Pattinson is NOT who I saw as Edward either…still kinda don't.

  84. Sylvia Parker

    This is not how I pictured my fifty! My fifty has this gorgeous hair and "get lost in" eyes. This guy looks like a murderer! :(

  85. Lori Balzarini Breslow

    I thought Christian is SUPPOSED to look like Robert Pattinson, per the author. But I think the perfect actor to play the part, if there's a movie to be made, would be the gorgeous and talented, Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Ladies, he is the sexy King Henry from The Tudors TV BBC series. He has blue eyes that look right through you. Although I haven't read the book, YET, don't know if the eyes are supposed to be blue or brown. Does the eye color really matter? ; )

  86. Susan Cea

    Good point well made, Miss Steele ;-) But I still think THE Mr. Grey should be more handsome. Sketches tend to remind me of bad people; people are wanted by the law LOL

    Now that I've read more of the comments, I'm agreeing with the Henry Cavill suggestion….Ok, now make THAT happen….

    Ladies I am certiainly enjoying all your comments MUCH more than this SUPER CREEPY (note "shouty" caps) rendering of the god-like creature that should be Christian. I somewhat agree with those who mention Henry Cavill, and I would like to direct your attention to the British actor Aaron Taylor-Jackson. Take a minute to BING him, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Let's remember: Copper, floppy, just f*%#ed hair!

    And here's to hoping the movie is more exciting than the trilogy (well at least from the 2nd book and on). Sounds more like a made for Lifetime film than a Hollywood major production.

    I think Josh Duhamel would make a great Christian Grey. He is Gorgeous, sexy, and can be rough around the edges. He also looks young, and Christian is not even 30 yet. Christian is a young billionaire who has a dark past, who also can be a sweet, protective, and dominating man. I think Josh has that look! Just my personal opinion. As for Anastasia, I was thinking like Emma Stone or someone like her that's sweet and beautiful without all that makeup. Also when all dolled up she could be absolutely gorgeous. I hate when casting directors cast famous names for movies, and try to make them a lot younger than the character actually is.

    no way , please do not let this composite be anything like Christian………

  109. Anastasia Carter

    Eh NO! Totally pictured Ryan Gosling! He can be sexy and dangerous all at the same time…plus he looks awesome in a suit! Christian Grey is a mixture of Ryan 's charaters in the movie Drive; Love
    Actually (his body is killer) Notebook; idles of March. This guy needs play this role he just too good of an actor; maybe he could even bring so crediblty to the book.

    Good God no! He always looks cross eyed or just stuck on stupid

  115. Cindy Stice Grays

    Not at all! I pictured him more like the young guy on the Bevely Hills Million DollarListing.

  124. Paulette Truog Fehl

    Yikes…I haven't read the books; I'm just too fond of the original Mr. Grey…E. Edward Grey in the movie Secretary. This guy looks like he has a prison wrap sheet a mile long…ugh!

  125. Stephanie Goodman-Gelera

    Nope, actor Gabriel Macht is Christian Grey in my opinion.

  126. Julie Shute Franklin

    That sure the hell isn't how I pictured him!!!

  127. Kate Feick

    I want Michael Fassbender as Christian Grey. If you've seen him in "Shame," you'll know what I'm talking about. He'd be perfect ;).

  133. Kimberly Erin

    Sorry that's not even remotely close to the way he should look. He needs to have dark skin, olive looking…dark hair, GREY eyes! and smokin hot and mysterious lookin…..this picture looks like it's of some dumb college kid who just rolled out of his dorm bed after an all night drinking binge!

  139. Sheila Estell Cadiz

    I picture him as Ryan gosin on crazy stupid love. Look it up

  140. April Phillips

    Definitely looks nothing like my CG. Eyes too kind. Why the butt chin? And, um, I never liked Val Kilmer in the 90s, why do I want him as Christian Grey? This looks just like him.

  141. Amelia Fenton

    He looks skeevy. Like a drug using dirt bag with no class and less brains. Christian is supposed to be devastatingly HOT, beautiful even. Looks like the guy I'd lock the car door against if I saw him coming my way. I have two words: Pretty Ugly. Drop the pretty. His eyes are too close together, jaw too heavy, brow too neandrathal and lips too juicy. Far too common looking, I imagine Mr. Grey with finer features and HA much better skin and not looking like a cave man.

    That said if Christian Grey were real and I encountered him I'd enjoy crushing his poor wittle spirit, but then I'm a domme so *shrug* Mua ha ha ha

    This sketch looksl like a skinnier Val Kilmer………Not who I had in mind at all.

  146. Samantha Pennington

    Christian Grey is far more beautiful than this…. imposter :-)

  147. Angela Heiden

    Kelli – Channing is the freakin' bomb dignity of hotness, you will never hear me say otherwise!! ;) He could be my Christian anyway – however, he seems way too normal for the part! I've heard Alexander Skarsgaard (True Blood) is a front runner. . ..

  148. Keri Johnson

    The article yes, the books, no. I have friends who have so I know the premise, which is why I have NOT read them, but if a movie (or tv show) is made I still think Ian is perfect for it!

  150. Erika Winkles Camacho

    That is so far from what Christian Grey would look like! I would not let that creepy looking dude bring any of his fifty shades of nothing near me! The only playroom I would consider going into with that dude is one that actually has an XBOX in it and he better have the newest games too!

  151. Rachael Hartman

    This dude just looks plain creepy and straight out of Jail, also he does look a bit like Val Kimer!, however my Cristian would be someone like Channing Tatum or Chris Pine! cant wait to see who they pick to play him!

  152. Erin Tierneigh

    Looks like David Duchovny. Haven't read this fanfic, and don't plan on it.

    they should use the guy on the facebook page for kindle advertising for south of bixby bridge hes more like what I had in mind that sketch looks like a rapist not someone who would attract women.

  155. Mary Lynn Eckert

    lynn, have you ever read 'mila 18'? we had to read it senior year and the main male character was named andre. everyone in the class had their own vision of this guy and no 2 were alike. lol

  156. John Day

    Ah yes…when men do this it is shallow and sexist. Now that the shoe is on the other foot/other head is in the gutter, it will just be termed a clitoral driven exercise in the personification of the man that brings out my primal instincts.

  160. Annie DeGenova Dimmick

    I think of the guy who plays EJ on Days of our Lives. I think his name is James Scott. He would be perfect for the part. When I think of Ana, I think of Emma Stone. Thoughts?

  161. Meyori Brown

    Horrible! Try again! Get another 12 women who really know what Christian looks like.

  162. Stephanie Dunaway

    I certainly hope that sketch isn't what he looks like because that's not how I picture him!

  163. Misty Stanford Moseley

    ewwwww this so needs a dislike button!!!!

  164. Lana Reich Quinn

    I can see drawing inspiration from David Beckham but this sketch is TOO Val Kilmer and the eyes aren't right, for me lol. And he needs slightly longer, waiver hair. The sketch isn't awful but it's more creepy stalker than the sensual, seductive Dom that is Christian Grey :) swoon..

  165. Jennifer Maass

    I honestly dont see him like that in my head, but everyone sees him differently.

  166. John Steiner

    I think that John Steiner should get the part. He was..er..is a stud!

  167. Bethalie Henrickson

    Not as handsome, high class as I see him in my mind, too young, I can't see this person in the image wearing the closthes as described in the book, The image is a disappointment to me. Still enjoy the read.

  168. Melisa Fazlić

    I don't see him looking like that either lol but everyone does see characters differently

  169. Kelly Shannon

    I just finished the second book and I can't wait to get my hands on the next one. I am 36 years old and would hate to look at a 25 yr old playing the part because for me I would MUCH rather look at a MAN rather a boy…even though that is what the book depicts. Christian Bale is MY Christian Grey. Hands down…or tied behind my back..lol. He plays a hot tortured soul SO very well. This being stated if they go w a younger guy then I think that Ian Somerhalder will do.

    So far so good Denise..I just hope they dont ruin it by making a movie out of it and having it be all teeny-bopper-ish.

    Despite the flack this book is getting, I sincerely hope it opens up the market for erotic fiction. I've epublished a book called "Anything For Georgetown And Other Stories" on Smashwords.com. It is a collection of four stories that focus on the fetishes of spanking and tickling. The title story is about a teenage girl at a Catholic school. She's a bit of a bully, and a princess. She has wealthy parents, she's gorgeous, and to earn even more money, she hosts strip shows for the boys at her school. She is dying to get into Georgetown, and the new guidance counselor at her school is freaked out by her behavior. He is also an alumni of Georgetown. He promises to get her into her dream college if she gives up the strip shows, her slutty behavior, and quits bothering other students, AND agrees to be punished "his way." Which is lots of spanking and tickling. I posted excerpts on short-fiction.co.uk and they've received nearly 20,000 views. When I uploaded the first part of "Anything For Georgetown" when the story went live, it was being viewed at the rate of once per minute. One comment said: "Sensational! A well-crafted story, beautifully written." My fiction isn't the "he shot his hot love juice on her huge jugs" type of writing. And unlike "50 Shades" this is NOT fan fiction. This is totally made up, from my imagination. You can try out 20 percent of my book at Smashwords.com. It's also available at Barnes and Noble.com. You can get it now on Smashwords for only $2.50 through the end of July. Also available here: http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/86128.

    Definately a no go! lol Christian Grey is supposed to be a showstopper.A man women can't help but keep their gaze (and more;)on).I agree with another comment I read on here, they should do an HBO series if they make any production from this book.A movie would never do it justice.
