At the season 6 premiere screening of Sons of Anarchy in Hollywood last night, Charlie Hunnam told The Hollywood Reporter that when he was first approached to play Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Mom Jizz, he wasn’t sure he wanted to get locked into a franchise. But then when he got in a room with Dakota Johnson to do a screen test with her, the chemistry between their asses convinced him to sign the contract.
“As soon as we got in the room and started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us. It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it.”
Uh huh. Bitch needs to tell the truth. More like the chemistry with Charlie and the check they waved at him was so powerful that he knew he had to do it.
Charlie also told reporters that he’s not scared or shy about doing a fuck scene, because he was in Queer as Folk, so he’s done a whole lot of fuck scenes.
“My first job was on a Channel 4 miniseries called Queer as Folk. [There were] incredibly explicit sexual scenes with a man. I mean, I’m 16- and 17-years wiser now. So if I could do it when I was 18 with a guy, I can certainly do it at 33 with a lady.”
And then Charlie admitted what NOBODY, even a ho who’s going to be in the movie, should admit:
“I went and read the first book to get a clearer idea of who this character was and felt even more excited about the prospect of bringing him to life.”
They must’ve injected liquid money into his veins and that check must have a whole lot of zeros in it, because Charlie has gone crazy. First he says that “chemistry” is what made him sign on and then he says that reading the book made him feel excited about being in the movie. If Charlie really did read the book, he’d wonder why they were’t asking Jonah Hill or Seth Rogen to be Christian Grey since it’s obviously a comedy. Charlie is seriously trying to feed us a tampon full of bullshit. He should’ve just said that he didn’t read the book, but he did read every number on the check they gave him. And seriously, a movie that will have Charlie Hunnam’s bouncing ass in it can’t be that awful of a movie. (Hint to the director of Fifty Shades: Just show 90 minutes of Charlie Hunnam’s ass in motion.)
Here’s Charlie with Katey Sagal and the rest of the cast of Sons of Anarchy last night:
