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.

Sophia Bush Reveals Challenges of Working With Ex Chad Michael Murray on ‘One Tree Hill’ After Divorce
Sophia Bush may have just gotten married, but she’s reflecting on a past, high-profile relationship on the Drama Queens podcast.
Specifically, her marriage and divorce from One Tree Hill co-star, Chad Michael Murray.
While chatting with her former co-stars, Bethany Joy Lenz and Hilarie Burton—who are all too familiar with what went down between Biush and Murray—the actress opened up about the hardships of having to work on set after the couple divorced in 2006. They got engaged in 2004 and married in 2005.
In fact, Bush said it was even more difficult because their characters, Brooke Davis and Lucas Scott, started dating around the same time their relationship was hitting a rough patch that it would never bounce back from.
“Not for nothing, you were going through a breakup with the person that you were playing a romance opposite of,” Joy Lenz said.
“And regardless of what all those circumstances were, that’s incredibly difficult — emotionally to be able to be vulnerable and be there in that moment. There’s lots of actors who have done that — who’ve done movies and TV shows and things, they date their costar or whatever, it doesn’t work out. But the fact that you were able to just be that raw and open and vulnerable, it’s a real credit to you as an artist. You put your art in front of everybody and just were like, ‘Look, this is it. I’m just sharing my heart and here we are’. I thought it was really beautiful,” she said.
Bush gave a very mature answer, explaining that regardless of what was going on in her personal life, she prioritized the show and the character that resonated with so many young women.
“People can call it whatever they want. They can say it’s strength, they can say it’s pride, they can say its professionalism — you can put a positive or a negative skew on I, but I was always going to put Brooke Davis ahead of everybody and everything else. Nothing mattered to me but being honest for her,” she explained.
The actress, who recently wed Grant Hughes in a stunning and poignant Oklahoma wedding, previously refused to speak about her marriage to Murray as she didn’t want her career to be defined by a relationship.
“I refuse to let that one relationship define me, which is why I’ve done my best to avoid discussing it for 10 years,” she began, while acknowledging that it was a “massive event” in her life.
She added: “The trauma of it was amplified by how public it became, which was incredibly foreign and bizarre to a girl who’d been just another college kid 24 months before her life blew up.”
