Accompanied by a caption reading, "Happy Birthday, Anastasia. #FiftyShades," Johnson is shown as the protagonist, with her brunette locks framing her face and bangs skimming her eyebrows. She holds a black sharpened pencil bearing the name Grey between her fingers, ever-so-suggestively resting the eraser on her bottom lip.

The Grey pencil, of course, is a reference to billionaire and her future lover Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan), whose company Anastasia visits when she first meets him.

The author of the best-selling book, E L James, also celebrated Anastasia Steele's birthday. She took to Facebook to share a new passage she had written, in which Christian asks Anastasia what she would like for her birthday.

Due out in February 2015, the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie has been hyped for months. The first trailer for the Sam Taylor-Johnson-directed flick debuted in July, offering fans a long-awaited peek at the boundary-pushing story of Anastasia and Christian's relationship.
