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.

TV Characters Good at Keeping Secrets

Everyone lies, and everyone keeps secrets. It’s human nature. The act of lying and keeping secrets tends to go hand-in-hand.

If you don’t want someone to find out the truth, at some point, you’ll have to tell them a lie. Some people are better at lying than others; it comes naturally to some while others couldn’t tell a lie to save their own life.

We’ve rounded up a list of TV characters who have mastered the art of keeping a secret. Some of their secrets are innocent in nature, some have the potential to destroy, some cover-up mistakes of the past, some are kept to protect others, and a few are better left taken to the grave.

Before we launch into our gallery of best TV secret-keepers, I’ll leave you with this TV show theme song quote: “two can keep a secret if one of them is dead.”

Billy Hargrove Deserved Better on ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3

Why Billy Hargrove Deserved Better on Stranger Things Season 3

This post contains spoilers. If you have not watched Stranger Things Season 3, do not continue reading.

Billy Hargrove made a splash on Stranger Things Season 2 as the resident bad boy, but it wasn’t until the third season where he became fully integrated and essential to the core storyline.

In the third season, Billy rose from being a supporting character to essentially carrying the series, yet he never got the recognition he deserved.

There have been a handful of characters who I could’ve demanded justice for in the Stranger Things realm from Barb to Bob to Alexei. Trust me, they all deserve it, but Billy’s storyline especially triggered me because he was cheated from the very beginning.

He was never set up to win, and when he finally did achieve his redemption arc, it was glossed over because of a bigger death; one that admittedly, carried more weight.

I’m obviously referring to Hopper’s death.

The emotional stock of Billy’s decision to fight through the evil coursing through his body in order to save Eleven didn’t have time to sink in or resonate before the writers ripped our hearts in half by killing the hot-headed-who-always-meant-well police chief and Eleven’s dad.

But here’s why Hopper’s death shouldn’t have overshadowed Billy: there’s a huge probability that Hopper isn’t dead.

The scene following the credits showed the Russian’s referring to an “American” prisoner.

The Russians referred to Hopper as the American multiple times throughout the season, so it’s likely that Stranger Things Season 4 will be a rescue mission to save Eleven’s beloved papa.

But Billy is gone for good, and still died a secondary death.

And in his final moments, the only person who mourned him was Max, who for most of the season was forced to turn against her brother because he became the Mind Flayer’s host.

At no point did any of Max’s friends show concern over Billy nor did they try to save him from the Mind Flayer’s control. From the getgo, they rode him off as the “bad guy” because he wasn’t liked around town and accepted his fate.

Billy may have been deemed the “classic bully” and boy, he did a good job at it, but Bily wasn’t a bad guy who deserved his death.

Billy was broken and tormented.

As we saw when El tapped into his subconscious, his father was abusive and his mother abandoned him.

Instead of dealing with the trauma, Billy acted out and became a womanizer.

TV Show Characters Chemistry Set Off Fireworks

Chemistry is that “thing” between two characters that is so electric, it cannot be ignored.

It’s hard to explain what happens in that moment, but it’s best described as a spark that almost makes you forget that your watching and rooting for a fictional couple.

The best type of chemistry is the one that isn’t forced — it’s natural and effortless and oftentimes, translates off-screen.

It can happen between friends that aren’t aware of their feelings for each other, a couple that’s about to embark on a romantic relationship, or lovers who, despite the obvious chemistry, can’t seem to make it work.

Here’s our list of characters with undeniable chemistry that could set off fireworks. There are so many to choose from that we couldn’t add them all. Let us know who you’d add onto the list!
