The real Christian Grey

So we’ve all got a mental picture of what the Fifty Shades of Grey millionaire protagonist looks like in our minds, in fact we probably have probably imagined a great deal of him!

Now we are able to see what the real Christian Grey would look like with the help of Dr Faye Skelton from the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), who has used software usually designed to catch criminals to recreate his dashing good looks. University boffins used the e-fit software employed in police investigations to put a face to the mysterious character at the centre of the best selling novel.

The  black-and-white image, which shows a man with tousled hair and high cheekbones, based on descriptions of how women imagined him to look. Skelton took these descriptions from 12 female readers to create the striking image saying:

“While we don’t want to intrude on anyone’s fantasies, based on a small sample of women, this is the image of Christian Grey they have in their heads when reading the novels.”

“Most of the descriptions drew comparisons with famous film stars, which may help Hollywood moguls when the film remake comes to casting.”

The majority of fans believe lead character Christian Grey is a strapping six footer “with very big hands,” the composite artists revealed.

Can you guess where the features came from?

Here’s the breakdown:

Hair – Channing Tatum / Brad Pitt (In ‘The Mexican’) / Joe Flanigan

Eyes – Patrick Dempsey / Steve McQueen / Johnny Depp (as Jack Sparrow)

Face shape: David Beckham Jaw line: Brad Pitt / David Beckham
