We all have enjoyed Fifty Shades of Grey starring Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. Their explicit romance, mainly Anastasia Steele's sadomasochistic relationship with Christian Grey made the actors evergreen onscreen lovers, and a group of fans still expect them to play erotic romance once again. But, do you know Charlie Hunnam was initially offered to play in the movie?
Charlie Hunnam was initially offered to play the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey before it was given to Jamie Dornan. But the Pacific Rim actor left the project. Since this news broke out, there is a sort of imagination among Fifty Shades and obviously Triple Frontier actor's avid fans in terms of 'what…if' factor.
According to Newsweek, Charlie Hunnam, who played Raleigh Becket in 2013-superhit movie Pacific Rim, dropped the Fifty Shades of Grey project weeks after his casting was announced. He never said that the requirement of mysteriously dark Christian Grey-character of almost stripping off the clothes over the bed was a kind of taboo for him, but he admitted that he never regretted letting it go to Jamie Dornan against Dakota Johnson.
"I don't see myself in that role at all because it would have been totally different. I think what acting is, is trying to create a character and you put half of yourself into it, [a] bit more than half. So that's Jamie Dornan's character, you know? I haven't seen them but I'm sure he did an excellent job," Charlie Hunnam said.
According to the 38-year-old Sons of Anarchy actor, he has even no interest in watching Fifty Shades of Grey or the recently released Fifty Shades Freed. He even hasn't seen a single instalment of Fifty Shades, hence didn't prefer to give an opinion on the movies.
"I started to realize that my, my vision of who that guy was, was not everybody else's vision. You can't get into a film, let alone three films, totally at odds with the rest of the filmmaking community or the creative community involved in something because it's just going to be [a] miserable experience...It was better for me just to extract myself from the process, but no regrets," Charlie Hunnam added.
