This was the SADDEST thing to happen over the weekend! It was confirmed that "Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam has dropped out of "50 Shades of Grey" - NO!!!! WHY!!! UGH!! Here is what the studio said...
"The filmmakers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam's immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey," Universal Pictures and Focus Features said in a joint statement obtained by E! News (Deadline first broke the story).
Now it just seems as if Charlie can't prep for the movie...however a source close to Charlie says this isn't a "shocker" that Charlie has dropped out...why??
"The attention and the pressure was intense" - "More than anything he hates attention and being in Fifty Shades of Grey would force him to do lots of media. That's really not his thing. Charlie doesn't want to be massively famous. Plus, he hates conforming and being told what to do. This role would force him to have to be something he is not."
It's understandable. I remember when no one really knew who Robert Pattinson was and then he starred in "Twilight" and his ENTIRE life changed. And I can't really see Charlie Hunnam being the kind of guy that likes that.
