Mila Kunis has brushed off rumours that she will play Anastasia Steele in the film version of EL James' racy bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey. But she jokingly suggested her Oz The Great and Powerful co-star Zach Braff should star in it instead. "Gosh, this Fifty Shades of Grey thing is just not gonna leave is it," she said at a London press conference for Oz. "No, you will not see me in Fifty Shades of Grey. I'm so sorry."

Scrubs star Zach, 37, quipped, "If I could cast a spell I'd cast one on Mila to have her do Fifty Shades of Grey. Maybe this means I can be in it?" The 29-year-old actress, who is dating Ashton Kutcher, replied, "It's all yours Zac, you'd be fantastic in it." Both actors star in Disney's prequel to the classic Wizard of Oz alongside James Franco, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams. Mila, who plays good-witch-gone-bad Theodora, praised her fellow actresses, Rachel and Michelle. "The ladies are the most amazing co-stars anyone could ever ask for," she said. "Rachel and Michelle are a gift."

Meanwhile Oz star and Hollywood heartthrob James Franco, 34, enjoyed reminiscing on his youth. "I've been a fan of Oz since I was a boy. I read all of the L. Frank Baum books," he said. "I was excited that I would be able to step into the world of my childhood imagination." Mila is currently based in London with boyfriend Ashton. In January it was reported that they would be moving over in time for spring when she begins filming Jupiter Ascending. "Mila is over for at least six months filming near London and Ashton has decided to head here too," a source said. "They spend most of their time glued to each other's side." They are said to have looked at properties in the Marylebone area, where actress Kate Hudson and director Guy Ritchie are among the neighbours. Ashton, 35, recently wrapped his Steve Jobs biopic, jOBS, which premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah. Mila and Ashton first met 14 years ago when they filmed retro sitcom, That 70s Show, but were only romantically linked at the beginning of 2012 following the breakdown of Ashton’s relationship with Demi Moore.
