Charlie Hunnam rides off on his motorcycle after checking out new sunglasses at the Guise Archives Eyewear Company on Saturday (September 6) in Los Angeles.
The 34-year-old actor talked to Moviefone this week to reveal his decision to drop out of the Fifty Shades of Grey.
“I was going to finish Sons [of Anarchy] at like 11 p.m. Friday night, get on the plane Saturday morning to Vancouver for Fifty, missing the whole first week of rehearsal and start shooting Monday morning,” Charlie said. “And I was going to shoot that film, wrap that on the Wednesday and the following Monday I was going to start shooting Crimson Peak in Toronto. I just had like … frankly, something of a nervous breakdown.”
“I just said, ‘I can’t … I can’t …,’” Charlie added. “To fail on such a grand scale – because Fifty‘s going to be massive, it’s going to be huge. I really didn’t want to fail on such a grand scale and I just couldn’t transition from Jax Teller to Christian Grey in 48 hours. I bit off more than I could chew and it was painful. I loved the character and I wanted to do it.”
