Who is the real Christian Grey?
When people hear the name Christian Grey, they picture the young, ambitious, powerful and very rich public image of Christian Grey. Already a billionaire at age 27, he has his hands in a wide variety of businesses – everything from shipping to feeding the poor of Africa.
Mr. Grey believes in hard work and dismisses being lucky. He ascribes to knowing your work and becoming the master of it. The harder he works, the luckier he gets. A lot of good advice there. But perhaps his true success comes from getting to the heart of what people want, then giving it to them to get what he wants.
But what is behind that professional image? Who is the richest, most elusive, most enigmatic bachelor in Washington State really? Raised by wealthy parents, a lawyer and a doctor, Mr. Grey was actually adopted at age 4; one has to think that would have an impact on his life. But a private man like Mr. Grey does not speak publically of such events. He readily admits to having loving parents and a brother and sister – making for a nice family, but insists he wants no family of his own? Perhaps he’s gay?
Mr. Grey assures us he is not gay, yet no one has seen him with a lucky lady on his arm. It makes you wonder if the most eligible bachelor in Seattle is hiding a woman inside his Seattle penthouse. I have no doubt there is enough room to do so comfortably.
Perhaps he doesn’t have time to weed out ladies who are just after his money, they may be the only ones who can get past his intimidating gazes. Instead he spends his time in other pursuits, feeding the poor, flying, sailing, and “other various physical pursuits.” I could leave that to your imagination, but I have heard through the grapevine that he is skilled at kickboxing but his golf games needs some work. I guess money doesn’t buy you everything.
In his interview we did sense that Mr. Grey has a sense of humor, though you would never guess that by the cold, clean, and clinical office that he keeps – glass, steel, white sandstone, and white leather. There must be more behind those shrewd eyes. It may it will take a very special woman to find out who Christian Grey really is.Katherine Kavanagh Washington State University Newspaper, Editor
