Is Charlie Hunnam reconsidering ’50 Shades’ following casting backlash?
Here are some new photos of Charlie Hunnam on the Sons of Anarchy set yesterday and today. The paparazzi have been camped outside of the Sons of Anarchy set ever since Charlie Hunnam was named as Christian Grey in 50 Shades of Grey. They’re there every day it seems. Charlie is getting photographed a lot. And I’ve got to wonder… is he getting tired of it already? Last week, sources confirmed that Universal (the studio responsible for the 50 Shades adaptation) had hired extra security for Charlie on the red carpet premiere of Sons of Anarchy. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Universal was also paying for extra security while Charlie is on the SoA set too.
Even if Charlie was and is surprised by his newfound status, I’ve got to think that this is exactly what he wanted, right? He didn’t take the Christian Grey role because he thought it was some intense, Shakespearean character worthy of his acting talents. He took the role because he wanted to be a movie star and he wanted the celebrity status. My point? Don’t believe the “reports” that Charlie is second-guessing his choice and considering pulling out of 50 Shades. He wants this.
Anyway, would you hit it while it was in coveralls? I have to say, the coveralls are NOT deterring me as much as you would think. He sort of looks like a sexy mechanic. Maybe that’s just me – I have a weird attraction to mechanics. They know how to work with their hands.
