Things are getting steamy in the run-up to the release of "Fifty Shades of Grey," as this new, naughty-but-nice photo proves.
The image, released by the film's Twitter page in honor of protagonist Anastasia Steele's birthday, features a close-up of Ana (Dakota Johnson) as she thoughtfully chews on the end of a pencil, monogrammed with the word "Grey." It couldn't possibly be a euphemism for something else, could it?
We'll leave that up to those with dirtier imaginations than ours (though the pencil standing in for something else belonging to S&M-obsessed billionaire Christian Grey did cross our minds). The photo certainly proves that filmmakers (or at least the social media team) have a sense of humor about the provocative film's sexual antics -- and, of course, they're leaving us wanting more.
"Fifty Shades of Grey," which stars Jamie Dornan in the titular role, is due in theaters on February 13, 2015.
