Scott Eastwood Reveals Why He Turned Down 'Fifty Shades'

Scott Eastwood is about to blast off as a movie star with his new film The Longest Ride, which is in theaters now. But, there was a chance he would have landed one of the most buzzed about roles in recent years.

The 29-year-old actor was up for the role of Christian Grey in the movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but he has revealed that he refused to audition as they wouldn’t let him read the script first.

“They wanted me to sign a deal before I went in and even tested for it, which to me is backwards,” Scott told Variety. “I thought it could make a good movie. The problem is, if you don’t have a script, you don’t know what movie they are going to make.”

The role eventually went to Charlie Hunnam, who dropped out with the part later going to Jamie Dornan.

    If it wasn’t for his father, he wouldn’t even be on gossip sites. I don’t understand JJ’s sudden fascination with him.

  • GeminiLuver

    He riding so hard off daddy’s coattails. He is very annoying and loves attention.

  • Askars_lvr

    Please bitch! You totally wish you had said yes! Yeah it’s a crappy movie but made Jamie Dornan’s name known around the world. Truth is you weren’t broody enough for the role.

    The douche is strong with this one.

    I don’t believe him about FSOG and I think he’s screwing with his H’wood chances by making statements like this.

    JJ isn’t fascinated with him. JJ is getting paid. That’s what this site is. Most of the celebrities on here are B, C, and D list. Their PR and agents pay gossip bloggers to feature them so that they stay in the public’s eyes. Why else do think is the reason that Hilary Duff — who doesn’t seem to even work and is utterly boring — is on here literally 5 days a week?

    This guy is SUCH a tool.

    This guy is SUCH a tool.

  • MollyBD

    He needs to shut up. The more he talks (brags), the less appealing he is.

  • Niki Beth

    He’s not even THAT good looking. Yes, attractive, but there are hotter guys out there. SIT DOWN SCOT EASTWOOD

  • 55vineyard

    I did not watch the movie, but this guy is hot IMO.

  • Nahhdas

    Maybe I got lost in translation and/or the headline is misleading: He didn’t turned down 50 shades,as he never got the role. He was asked to do just an audition, that doesn’t mean he got the lead part.

  • Bombshell Betty

    and kate bosworth

  • Bombshell Betty

    ermm nooo scott reeves who wanted to see if he could make it on his own without daddy’s name until he couldn’t.

    so now eastwood jr was NEVER invited to audition and when charlie hunum dropped out he begged his “fans” on twitter to petition the producers for the role.

    he never turned it down

    Or rather he was turned down… The guy is such a famewhore, and he will learn that discretion is a good thing, his father knew that.

  • DorothyfromOz

    This guy is hot, I’m surprised he hasn’t done a big screen movie before this one. His dad’s name is actually probably holding him back. He’s much better looking than his Dad and he doesn’t strike me as a fame seeker.

    it looks like half hollywood turn down that trash movie

  • Tigerlilly
