About This Quiz

Love me like you do! If you don't have someone to love you like Ana or Christian, this "50 Shades of Grey" quiz is the one for you! Can you handle the intensity?

In 2011, author E.L. James released her best-selling novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey." First starting off as a Twilight fanfiction story on the internet, the story then blossomed beyond its URL to a spot on multiple best-seller lists. After the release of the final novel in the trilogy, the novel made its way to the movie screen in 2015.

Starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, the film follows a recent college graduate who begins a BDSM relationship with a rich businessman. From the storyline to the actors to the soundtrack, moviegoers were hooked. Were you singing along to the Weeknd's "Earned It?" You might've been belting out the chorus to "Love Me Like You Do." Did the film leave you reminded of Beyonce's "Haunted?" If you're here, that means Christian Grey was just the kind of intensity you needed. How well do you remember the drama?

What was Anastasia's major? How did Christian like to exercise? What was the name of his helicopter? From 514 pages and over two hours of film, can you remember all the shades or will you be left heartbroken before the sequel?
