Charlie Hunnam Exits 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie

Charlie Hunnam has exited from the highly anticipated film Fifty Shades of Grey, according to Deadline!

“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 shared in a statement about the 33-year-old actor.

Prior to leaving the project, Charlie recently shared to EW, “There are so many fans of that book and I know that on the surface, I’m probably not what everybody imagined. Because reading is so personal and people bring a character to life in their imagination, they feel ownership over that character.”

ARE YOU SURPRISED that Charlie Hunnam is exiting Fifty Shades of Grey?

    This is really disappointing. I think Charlie is a wonderful actor and he would have been a fantastic Christian Grey. I hope he did not bow out due to fan pressure. Regardless I’m still watching Sons of anarchy for him :)

    I was only going to watch it if he was in it. I didn’t read the books but I read plenty reviews saying it’s poorly written. Anyway I’m kinda glad he dropped out because I don’t think the movie would have turned out to be that great considering the amount bad reviews the book itself had gotten. Charlie’s better off! I’m sure he can land MUCH better roles in the future.

    No actor with any credibility or integrity would want to be associated with that garbage in any way, shape or form. It affects your reputation, your ability to gain future roles, and your whole career. Actors need to choose their roles carefully, like Johnny Depp does.

    Good, he is way too good of an actor to be on this movie. Also, he will have been remebered like that “50 shades of grey” actor and I don’t think that would be good. He is handsome, likeable and a good actor. He can do so much better without soft porn

    Woooow, this is insane…I’m sure it’s due to crazy women complaining he was not good enough for what they had imagined in their dreamy heads…sick..costing somebody a job and humiliation…so sad

    Sounds like a bunch of grown a** women wanted him out and got him out. Just as bad as those silly Bieber fans. Grow up ladies.
