There are plenty of rumors floating around about why Sons Of Anarchy actor Charlie Hunnam exited the movie adaptation of E.L. James’ filthy, poorly written erotic series, Fifty Shades Of Grey. Among them, it was revealed per the official statement from the movie’s producers that Charlie was having scheduling conflicts. Others have said that Charlie may have even gotten cold feet. Reportedly, Charlie left the movie because he didn’t want to be typecast as Christian Grey, just like Robert Pattinson has with Edward Cullen in the Twilight movies.
There are worse things than being typecast as a billionaire playboy with a penchant for bondage, no?
A source close to the situation said, “He dropped out of the project because he didn’t want to be typecast. He didn’t want the Robert Pattinson-esque attention that would come along with taking on this role.”
An insider added, “What he was taking on with this role was not what Charlie wants in his future career. 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. Charlie doesn’t want to be massively famous.”
