'Fifty Shades of Grey' Author E.L. James: Charlie Hunnam Drop Out was Disappointing

Fifty Shades of Grey author E.L. James has opened up to Entertainment Weekly about the upcoming cinematic adaptation of her beloved novel!

The 50-year-old author talked about announcing the initial casting for the flick.

“It was very mixed and I had to get off Twitter for a couple of days. I wasn’t surprised. People hate change. I thought there would be a few people upset, regardless of whom we had chosen. It was intense, but people came around to it,” she said of casting Charlie Hunnam. “It was disappointing [when he dropped], but it is what it is. I wish him well. And now we have Jamie [Dornan], and that’s great. It’s been interesting with Jamie, [the fan reaction] has been so positive.”

Adding about Jamie‘s female co-star Dakota Johnson, “She’s an old soul, but she’s so sweet, and she has a wicked sense of humor.”

She also spoke about the book becoming a movie: “I’m terrified. Completely. I’ve been terrified from the moment I published the book.”
