Charlie Hunnam may have never wanted the role of ‘Christian Grey’ in Fifty Shades of Grey role!! A source tells E!News, Hunnam’s departure from the role was not ‘surprising.’ “This isn’t a surprise because what he was taking on with this role was not what Charlie wants in his future career. The attention and the pressure was intense. More than anything he hates attention and being in Fifty Shades of Grey would force him to do lots of media. That’s really not his thing. Charlie doesn’t want to be massively famous. Plus, he hates conforming and being told what to do. This role would force him to have to be something he is not.”
Hunnam’s punlic excuse was a little more practical…he didn’t have enough time to prep after his show, Sons of Anarchy goes on hiatus.”The filmmakers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam’s immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey,” Universal Pictures and Focus Features said in a joint statement.
Charlie will bounce back from this…and probably get even more offers with all the publicity!
