Charlie Hunnam Heartbroken About Fifty Shades of Grey Role

Published

on

Charlie Hunnam is heartbroken over Christian Grey…. well, over being Christian Grey.

The highly anticipated movie had fans racking their brains over who would play Mr. Grey after the trilogy sky-rocketed to popularity. When the casting was finally announced, the reactions were mixed. But a few days later, Charlie Hunam dropped out of the film adaptation and rumors were swirling that he was fired. Eventually we found out that it was because of his demanding Sons of Anarchy schedule and some family problems.

The leading role was quickly picked up Once Upon A Time star Jamie Dornan (and we’re not complaining). Some thought Hunnam just decided he didn’t want to be involved with the controversial, erotic movie. Now we’re finding out he’s actually heartbroken about losing the role!

“I felt like I had an interesting take on that character and felt like I could have done a good job of playing Christian Grey, otherwise I wouldn’t have taken it on in the first place,” he told Life & Style magazine. 

“When you put the time into something like that and a character comes alive in your mind, it’s heartbreaking not to be able to play him. … It was definitely kind of heartbreaking having to say goodbye to that character and not bring it to life.”

Unfortunately, sometimes life has a different plan for us! Despite losing the role-of-a-lifetime, he admitted that he would support and see the movie when it opens in February.

“If they invite me to the premiere, I will go and see it there,” he said. “If not, I’ll go and buy some tickets on opening night.”

In the meantime, he’ll be filming the 7th and final season of the hit drama Sons of Anarchy.

Despite the heartbreak, Hunnam is confident Dornan will do well as the S&M obsessed millionaire.

I don’t really know his work,” Hunnam confessed to TMZ in November. “But I know director Same Taylor-Johnson is amazing. She has fantastic taste so I’m sure he’ll do a great job.”

As for Dornan’s big-screen debut as the highly sexual character, he admitted he doesn’t fear it at all. “None of it scared me,” Dornan told Entertainment Weekly.

Younger Season 6 Report Card: Best & Worst Moments!

Published

Liza takes on New York City after modeling for Infinitely 21 on 'Younger.'

Younger had some great moments and some less than great moments on Younger Season 6.

On a broad level, the storylines weren’t as fleshed out as they should have been, plenty of story arcs got condensed for the sake of time, the characters weren’t as empowered, and the love triangle got pushed so heavily, both Team Josh and Team Charles teams were over it by the finale episode.

But the magic that made Younger the fresh, inspiring, and addictive show is still there hidden under all of that.

We’re looking back at the best, worst and funniest moments of Season 6.

Most Frustrating Thing About the Season

The love triangle.

We all dug the Charles vs. Josh conundrum in the show’s early days, but we can all agree that Liza’s indecisiveness is tiring.

The best thing that can happen come Season 7 is for Liza to make a choice and stick to it.

 

Funniest Moment

There’s never a shortage of funny moments on Younger.

Ironically, two of the funniest moments involved vaginas: Maggie sticking garlic up hers to get rid of a yeast infection delivered plenty of laughs on Younger Season 6 Episode 4 as did Lauren getting her private parts stuck to an ice sculpture on Younger Season 6 Episode 12.

But my personal favorite was Liza’s micro-dosing experience.

On Younger Season 6 Episode 6, Liza hallucinated Charles and Josh morphing into one person — it would make things easier for her — and then ballroom danced with both men when in reality, she was dancing with a plant

Fall TV Preview: Riverdale Season 4 Trailer Reveals Jughead is Missing

Published

The Riverdale Season 4 Trailer is Here & Jughead is Missing

The Riverdale trailer for season 4 is equal parts sexy and mysterious (what the hell happened to Jughead?!)

The series creators promised the season would be more high-school oriented giving it a “season 1” vibe following a dark, twisted, and oftentimes, ridiculous (we still loved it) G&G/ The Farm storyline on season 3.

And while they’re making good on that promise — we see Cheryl and the like prancing around the halls of Riverdale High — the show still capitalizes on the darker undertones and secrets.

This is a town that thrives on murder, and that’s never going to change.

The teens grapple with a pretty daunting realization — they’re going to have to part ways after senior year.

“Isn’t it crazy? In just nine-months, life as we know it will be over,” Veronica (Camila Mendes) muses without realizing the statement is more ominous than she intended.

The trailer reveals that one favorite may not make it through their senior year alive as the whole town embarks on a search mission through the volatile woods of Riverdale.

Who are they looking for? Our very own Jughead Jones.

Fans expected a rocky season for Jug following the cliffhanger of season 3, which saw him missing as Betty, Veronica and Archie cleaned up the blood from their clothes, but this has us officially worried.

Later in the trailer, we hear Jughead’s screams as he begs for “help” and tries to break out of what sounds like a car trunk.

What happened to Jughead? And is his disappearance linked to whatever happened in the final episode?

Other major moments in the trailer include Betty getting clobbered over the head from behind by an unknown figure (she’s after the Farm so it could be Evelyn Evernever), crime scene photos that make Betty gasp “oh my god,” a scantily dressed Veronica performing some pussycat dolls-esque routine on stage as she assures that she’s “no stranger to scandal,” and a bunch of smokin’ sex scenes with our three favorite ships: Choni, Bughead, and Varchie.

Yep, sounds like senior year!

Not spotted in the video: Alice Cooper, who we found out is infiltrating The Farm, anyone from The Farm (Chad Michael Murray, where ya at?), Kevin, also with the damn Farm, and Betty’s real brother, Chic, who was introduced in the finale as an FBI agent working with Alice to take down The Farm.

Riverdale’s Camila Mendes Reveals She Was Sexually Assaulted

Camila Mendes Instagram

Camila Mendes is a survivor.

The Riverdale star graced the October issue of Women’s Health where she came forward as a survivor of sexual assault.

Mendes revealed that she was slipped a date rape drug known as a “roofie” while she was a freshman at New York’s University Tisch School of the Arts.

Mendes became visibly emotional while recalling the attack, but she didn’t disclose any details about her attacker or what happened.

This isn’t the first Riverdale star to speak up about sexual assault and harassment.

In the wake of the #MeToo movement, Mendes’ co-star, Lili Reinhart (Betty Cooper on the hit series) took to Tumblr to reveal that a “significantly older” male co-worker tried to force himself on her while they were on a date.

She was a teenager at the time.

During the interview, Mendes also dished about how moving frequently before the age of 18 was a traumatic experience for her growing up.

She said she moves almost 12 times due to her parents’ divorce and her dad’s career.

“You’re constantly saying goodbye to people, and you’re constantly being removed from your identity. When you start to feel like you’re connecting with a group of people, an environment, and a home — a physical home— it can be destabilizing when you’re uprooted and taken somewhere else,” she said.

Nowadays, Mendes loves to follow a routine that includes staying at the same hotels when she travels, visiting familiar cafes and yoga studios.

She also opened up about living with an eating disorder.
