Charlie Hunnam's Decision to Pull Out Of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Was Painful & Difficult

Charlie Hunnam rocks a motorcycle vest while filming a scene on the final season of his hit show Sons of Anarchy on Monday (October 6) in Los Angeles.

During the scene, the 34-year-old actor was seen getting into a chase with a police car, which crashed and flipped over.

Charlie recently chatted about pulling out of the highly anticipated film Fifty Shades of Grey, which stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.

“It’s very personal to me, and every decision I make comes from my heart,” Charlie shared to Entertainment Weekly about the movie. “There’s nothing ever monetarily or fame-seeking or any of the other motivations that sometimes go hand-in-hand with this profession… It was very painful, and it was very difficult [decision].”

He added, “I was worried that the wrong perception would come out, which is what happened—it was all about that I got cold feet, or that I didn’t have faith in the movie, or that I didn’t like the script, and all this f–king bulls–t. It was a little bit annoying and a little bit painful, and I really was just so sad for Sam [Taylor-Johnson], the director, because I absolutely adore her, and I gave her my word and committed to going on this journey with her.”

FYI: Charlie is wearing Levi’s jeans.

    Ugh could people stop talking about why he decide to leave 50 Shades of Grey like seriously it’s getting kind of repetitive this man is more than 50 Shades of Grey. Get over it, move on already he’s not going too be in it, like jeez.

  • GFW

    F.E.A.R. For everything a reason. Trust me, Charlie, you did the right thing.
    -
    Jamie Dornan had The Fall under his belt that exhibited the, ohm, talents needed for this part. Besides beyond the hype and the first couple of weeks IMHO the film won’t be all that… even with Sam directing.
    -
    You’re too good for this if you ask me. And again, for whatever reason you were being protected from this by not getting the part.

  • sx

    omg enough of this, the movie has freaking finished filming and he’s still on about this.

  • Anna

    Stop talking about this and move on. The movie has already been shot.

  • Foby12

    Just let it go already, Charlie, please!

  • allison

    i’m glad they finally let Jax have clean hair. Charlie looks great. But I agree with others here, I’m tired of the talk about 50 Shades of Grey.

  • Meadow

    @Foby12: Maybe reporters should let it go. He’s asked about it in every interview he does and he’s too nice to tell them to STFU.

  • UGH!

    You know what’s more painful? Having to hear about Charlie Hunnam’s “painful and difficult” decision to pull out (pun?) from a mediocre, teenage girls fantasy script. Talk about beating a dead and decapitated horse.
    BTW, I miss Jax and Tara. Stopped watching in Season 6 because of ‘You Know What’, for those who have not seen it. #Mourning

  • UGH!

    @Meadow: I agree. It’s not Charlie’s fault. He’s just answering what he’s being asked. It’s these simpleton reporters who are too lazy to do research about his other projects, therefore, not knowing less redundant questions to ask.

  • dee

    Hooolyyyy FXXVXCCKKK! Can people let this go already!? Can we move on from this, he shouldnt have to answer this question every friggin time he does an interview! It doesnt matter why he left, he’s not Christian Grey and thats that. This clearly shows he’s too much of a nice guy to just say ‘ya hey, im done with answering this question…’ LET IT GO PEEPS.

  • diagss

    Please let it go
    He’s not in it and Jamie is Christian grey.
    So glad Jamie got the part

  • Elisa

    charlie we love you but please stop answering these questions about 50 shades of grey!! we want to know about your next proyect not this

  • Stacey

    Shut up about it. It’s done, he did not do the movie. Get over it. I know we would have all preferred to see him in the role, but it’s not going to happen. shut up about it.

  • Lauren Donofrio

    I think that Charlie is the type of guy who picks and chooses his roles very carefully and SOA was proof of that.I

  • ludoms

    I love Charlie Hunnam ‘s acting, especially in pacific rim.

  • Charlies fan angie
