Charlie Hunnam Is Still Traumatized by His Fifty Shades of Grey Experience
March 14, 2017 - Fifty Shades of Grey
Those who still haven’t seen Fifty Shades of Grey can count actor Charlie Hunnam among their ranks—though he has a slightly opposite reason for avoiding a raunchy intrigue authorization starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. In an talk with Elle, around E!, Hunnam suggested that he still hasn’t watched a initial film since it reminds him of a pell-mell time in his career.
“I grown a loyalty with [director Sam Taylor-Johnson],” Hunnam explained in a interview. “But that was a rather dire knowledge for me. we didn’t wish to open that wound.”
See, many moons ago, Hunnam was tapped to play Christian Grey, a sexy billionaire who sweeps Johnson’s Anastasia off her feet. He was expel in a purpose in 2013, though eventually had to dump out of a plan due to scheduling conflicts. So a partial went to Dornan instead—but fans were still left wondering because Hunnam wouldn’t file his report to fit in something with this kind of box-office potential.
Hunnam wouldn’t give a some-more minute reason of his motive until a few years later, in a 2015 interview with V Man. There, Hunnam pronounced that he was still operative on Season 7 of Sons of Anarchy when he was expel in Fifty Shades and had sealed on to do Guillermo Del Toro’s medieval intrigue Crimson Peak as well. Hunnam had given Del Toro his word that he’d star in a film, notwithstanding a fact that it was sharpened around a same time as Fifty Shades. And many as a Lannister always pays his debts, a Hunnam never goes behind on his word.
“People were saying, ‘Are we crazy?,’ ” Hunnam said. “ ‘Guillermo still has got 4 months to recast, it’s a fourth lead, we can go and do this [instead].’ we said, ‘I can’t. He’s my friend.’ ”
Hunnam pronounced that he primarily attempted to squeeze all in by finishing Sons, afterwards “fly[ing] to Vancouver a subsequent day [for Fifty Shades], have 10 days of rehearsal, and afterwards start sharpened . . . Then we was going to have 3 days after that and I’d have to start sharpened Crimson Peak, and afterwards I’d have dual days to transport and go behind into Season 7 of Sons.”
This is a kind of packaged report some operative actors dream of—but in practice, it’s distant messier and emotionally deleterious than in theory. So Hunnam eventually motionless to pass on Fifty Shades, that he called “the misfortune veteran knowledge of my life.”
“It was a many emotionally mortal and formidable thing that I’ve ever had to understanding with professionally,” he pronounced in 2015. “It was heartbreaking.”
And all these years later, it seems like Christian Grey is still vivid Hunnam.
