Some hunks just can't handle superstardom!
While Charlie Hunnam is a respected name in Hollywood, he led a fairly anonymous life until it was announced he would be playing Christian Grey in the HIGHly anticipated 50 Shades Of Grey.
Even though studios blamed Charlie's "immersive TV schedule" on the drop out, could his fear of turning into the next international heart throb be the true reason?!
Some would have you believe just that.
A source spilled:
"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."
Guess being a franchise heavyweight isn't for everyone!
This just proves how strong Rob is for dealing with his success so gracefully. *SWOON*
Who knew being worshipped by millions of women could be such a turn off?? LOLz!
We'll miss thoughts of Charlie in the Red Room of Pain, but we must look forward to which babe will fill his XXX-rated shoes!
