In 2013, it seemed like a sure thing that Charlie Hunnam would be the one blandly spanking Dakota Johnson in a movie version of Fifty Shades of Grey. Charlie seemed excited about it, but then all of a sudden, he quit the movie. Charlie blamed it all on scheduling. If that scheduling conflict was a person, this would be where they should cut Charlie a check for therapy, because he’s still so traumatized from quitting.
A few years ago, Charlie got melodramatic while talking about quitting Fifty Shades, saying he boo-hooed on the phone to director Sam Taylor-Johnson for 20 minutes after he quit. According to Charlie, quitting was the most “emotionally destructive and destructive thing” he’s ever had to do professionally. Apparently time hasn’t healed that memory for him. During an interview with Elle to promote The Lost City of Z, Charlie was asked if he ever saw Fifty Shades, and it sounds like that’s never going to be something he’ll do.
“I haven’t. I developed a friendship with [director Sam Taylor-Johnson], but that was a somewhat traumatic experience for me. I didn’t want to open that wound.”
Honestly, having a feel-bad flashback is the least of the reasons for why Charlie should never, ever see Fifty Shades of Grey. He thinks he’s traumatized now? Wait until he actually watches it. About 10 seconds into the unintentionally awkward scene where Anastasia meets Christian, Charlie’s body would become paralyzed with fear as a cold bead of sweat rolls down his face. And he will realize just how massive of a bullet that scheduling conflict helped him dodge. It would be like Charlie’s version of It’s A Wonderful Life, except it would end with Charlie scrambling to find the remote control and crying “Enough! Enough! Turn it off, Clarence, I’ve seen enough!”

Armie Hammer, who once said that he respects his feminist wife too much to pull her hair while fucking, may have outed himself as being into rope bondage after not realizing that everyone can see his Twitter likes.

There’s been not-so-blind items about how an actor went off to get treatment with help from a solid influence in his life. I read those blind items in a Bawsten accent and the scent of vape vapor wafted off of them, so they were obviously about Ben Affleck. Today, those blind items probably got their obvious answer when Ben said on Facebook that he spent some time in rehab to deal with an addiction to booze. It’s not the first time that Ben dried out and got help in rehab. Ben got treatment for booze abuse in 2001 at the celebrity rehab place of the early-aughts, Promises in Malibu. In his Facebook message, Ben also thanked his co-parent Jennifer Garner for supporting him.
I have completed treatment for alcohol addiction; something I’ve dealt with in the past and will continue to confront. I want to live life to the fullest and be the best father I can be. I want my kids to know there is no shame in getting help when you need it, and to be a source of strength for anyone out there who needs help but is afraid to take the first step. I’m lucky to have the love of my family and friends, including my co-parent, Jen, who has supported me and cared for our kids as I’ve done the work I set out to do. This was the first of many steps being taken towards a positive recovery.
TMZ ‘s source says that Ben checked into rehab shortly after he presented with Matt Damon at the Oscars on February 26. But who knows? Ben could’ve left rehab for the day to present at the Oscars. The last time he was papped with Jennifer Garner was in early February.
Well, I guess this means that those “Ben and Jen are trying to save their marriage” rumors are totally back on after they were denied. If Ben and Jennifer are really trying to work it out, then I have a feeling she will soon give him a special gift for completing rehab. Jennifer will take Ben to a luxurious spa that just so happens to specialize in a treatment called hardcore laser tattoo removal.
Back in September, Elin Nordegren caused many people to strongly question her judgement after sources claimed she went on a date with barely-rich Gavin Rossdale. They had allegedly gone out for dinner in Los Angeles, and were trying to make more dates happen, depending on how fast her private jet could get to L.A. from Florida. Except that it looks like their date never have happened.
