Aaron Taylor-Johnson Reveals Why Wife Sam Didn't Cast Him as Christian Grey in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'!

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Reveals Why Wife Sam Didn't Cast Him as Christian Grey in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'!

Aaron Taylor-Johnson goes in for the punch on the cover of Nylon Guys magazine’s May 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 23-year-old Godzilla star had to share with the mag:

On his self-destructive past: “It was a lot of crazy shit I got up to for a couple years. I was pretty self-destructive at one point. I used to smoke 30 fags a day, used to drink non-stop. I’ve always been able to be on the edge – be on the line, but then I pulled myself back.”

On being a dad: “I’m the only Dad (in my children’s music class). It’s like mums and nannies. And you’re clapping your hands. You’re singing more than the kids are.”

On turning down the role of Christian Grey with his wife: “I think (Fifty Shades of Grey) would have been the wrong kind of hype to bring towards us. It would have been kind of funny that this character that all these women fancy – he’s one in a million – and my wife picks her husband to play the part?”
