Charlie Hunnam Reveals Why He Won't Watch 'Fifty Shades'

Charlie Hunnam was once supposed to play the role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades franchise, but he dropped out of the project and Jamie Dornan was cast.

Now, the 36-year-old actor is opening up about why he won’t watch any of the movies.

“I developed a friendship with [director Sam Taylor-Johnson], but that was a somewhat traumatic experience for me. I didn’t want to open that wound,” Charlie told Elle magazine for an interview in the March 2017 issue.

Charlie previously has said that scheduling conflicts were the reason for him dropping out of Fifty Shades of Grey. He was still working on the final season of Sons of Anarchy and already committed to Crimson Peak, which was filming around the same time.

    I’m glad that he dropped out of this project, Fifty Shades of Grey sucks.

  • Silly People

    I think he’s really good at avoiding saying that in interviews. Why would a grown man want to watch that crappy movie?

    Seemingly, if they had made the film Sam and the others originally thought of, it would have been okay. Obviously, it would have been still meh but it would be passable. Then EL got involved deciding she knew better, got her way and the rest is history. It’s because of her attitude and ego that many of the crew refused to do Darker and why she ended up getting her husband to do the screenplay.

    If you watch Dornan acting you are gonna be traumatized EVEN more man….ahahahahahhahahaahahaha!!!!

    Will never understand why the studio gave ELJ so much control over filming.

  • Shell

    I figure they thought the films were gonna do much better than what they did so they wanted to stay on her good side and gave her what she asked for. You would think after the disaster of the first one they would have learned but nope, it seems they have given her even more control. In all honesty with this 2nd one tanking, if the third one gets released at all, I can see it going straight to DVD. If I was Jamie or Dakota, I would have tried to find a way out of my contract as soon as the first one was released. You can tell by the interviews they know it’s crap and they aren’t even trying to sell it.

    How are the movies a failure or “tanking”? It seems to me they are making lots of money

  • Sage45

    You’re right. The first one made $570 mill and Darker is at around $358 mil. The die-hard fans support the films.
