David Gandy Says He Turned Down 'Fifty Shades of Grey'
David Gandy says that he was offered the role of Christian Grey in the upcoming movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but turned down the coveted role.
“I was offered Fifty Shades of Grey, 300: Rise of an Empire, Hercules, which a lot of people probably would have taken as actors but I’m in the fortunate position where I like what I’m doing. I don’t feel the need to act,” the 34-year-old British model said in an interview with Square Mile.
“It just didn’t feel right, in any way. And in my gut, it felt right to say no,” David added of playing Christian Grey. “I know if you’re in a successful film, your status changes overnight. And I’m not saying I wouldn’t, I’ve read many parts that I’d love to play, things that I’ve chosen, though, not things that’ve been sent. Critics and literary experts aren’t fans of Fifty Shades of Grey but I respect it for what it is. But was it right for me? No.”
David is one of the most successful male models in the business right now and it looks like he will be sticking to that world.
