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.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Producer Dana Brunetti Opens Up About Dakota Johnson & Jamie Dornan Salary Rumors

There has been a lot of speculation lately about Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan‘s salary requests for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel, and now producer Dana Brunetti is throwing his two cents in – figuratively, of course.

The 41-year-old famed producer opened up about the starring duo wanting big raises.

“Look, when I was starting out and had to cut my teeth and build my résumé to get in, I had to basically work for free on a lot of things. I still take reductions in my fees for the opportunities to do certain things,” Dana told THR. “So I’m not going to cry for anybody who wants to be in this business just because a thing they were involved in did very well and they didn’t get paid [a lot]. That’s not the deal that you made. If it was, I’d have more than a couple Ferraris because all the money my films have made is f—ing insane. You’ve got to start somewhere.”

As for whether Sam Taylor-Johnson will be back as director, Dana said, “No idea. We literally have no idea what we’re going to do. I have not even met with the studio or anybody yet about the second film.”

Jamie Dornan Responds to Rumors About Wife Amelia Warner

Jamie Dornan is speaking out after rumors have been spreading that his wife Amelia Warner doesn’t want him to star in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequels.

“The idea was that we honor the trilogy and do all three,” the 32-year-old actor told the Daily Mail.

“Total b*****ks!” Jamie said of the rumors. “Of course she would have read the scripts well in advance, and she’s massively supportive of Fifty Shades.”

Jamie also responded to talk of him not having chemistry with co-star Dakota Johnson.

“They wouldn’t have shot the film with us if there was a chemistry problem… whatever chemistry means,” he said. “You have to jump through a lot of hoops to get a part like this, and they simply wouldn’t have cast us.”

Dakota Johnson & Jamie Dornan Seeking Seven Figures for 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Sequel - Report

After the major box office success of Fifty Shades of Grey, stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are looking for a pay raise for the sequels.

According to THR, the 25-year-old actress and 32-year-old actor received $250,000 each (plus box-office bonuses) to star in the first film based on EL James‘ trilogy of novels.

They also both signed three-picture deals and will try to renegotiate for seven-figure raises for Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.
