Charlie Hunnam talks ‘sexual chemistry’ with his upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey co-star, Dakota Johnson. While out promoting the season 6 of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy” he discussed his new, very controversial role as Christina Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey. “As soon as we got in the room and started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us,” he told THR. “It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it.”
And well this isn’t his first sexual type pf role.”My first job was on a Channel 4 miniseries called Queer as Folk. It was incredibly explicit sexual scenes with a man. I mean I’m 16 and 17 years wiser now. So if I could do it when I was 18 with a guy, I can certainly do it at 33 with a lady.”
Charlie also talked about his girlfriend jewelry designer Morgana McNelis and her reaction to the role of Christina Grey. “It’s very hard to be with an actor. She’s required to share parts of me that she wouldn’t really want to share. With the nature of this role, that’s going to be times 10.” He adds McNelis “loved the books. She read them and loved them and was really excited about the potential of the opportunity for me. If anything, I think it will make us closer.”
Hopefully there is not too much chemistry on the set…remember Brad and Angelina. Morgana better keep her guy, Charlie close.
