E.L. James' sex toy embarrassment

rexfeatures-1984169d.jpg

After wrapping on the film based on her best-selling erotic novel, Fifty Shades of Grey, author E. L. James tweeted that she had forgotten to take the batteries out of her sex toys (note: plural), which had started buzzing in her suitcase as she made her way home to the UK.

The filming of the movie, which stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, took place in Vancouver.

However, the writer wasn't getting away without any drama, and on her way home from Canada to the UK she'd forgotten to do something fairly important - take out the batteries from her sex toys.

It could have happened to anyone but at least if you're known for writing about sex then you can prove you know what you're talking about.

The Fifty Shades of Grey film is set to be released next Valentine's Day (2015) and is being shot by director Sam Taylor-Johnson. Also starring is Rita Ora as Christian's sister, Mia, and Marcia Harden as his mother.

Charlie Hunnam was originally slated to star in the film as the lead, but then pulled out last minute to be replaced by Dornan.

The poster for the film was also released last week, which features Ana and Christian. The image doesn't give much away but you can see Anastasia Steele looking very 'office like' (she's holding a file, very official), as well as the back of who we can only presume is Christian Grey.
