Charlie Hunnam Won't Go 50 Shades Of Grey To Avoid Robert Pattinson Mega Fame!

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."

Darn it!

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!

    Robert Pattinson, was rejected as Grey!

    Can't handle superstardom? Um, he IS a superstar. And maybe 'Robert Pattinson-esque attention' refers to having a fan base of sex starved people who don't really recognize that just because something is risque doesn't mean it's quality. Everyone can have their own opinion on what entertains them, and can be looking forward to the movies, but I, for one, am kind of happy he's not doing it. I don't think he can't handle the fame. Perhaps he just doesn't want that TYPE of fame.

    Charlie is a wuss. 50 shades was porn, he wouldnt get Rob's level of adoration even in his dreams. Charlie has become a laughing stock for even considering doing porn. EL James wrote Christian with ROB in mind. Insecure charlie

    And Rob was the author's first choice, but he rejected her long ago.

  4. LOLO says – reply to this


    @CLARA Christian Grey is based on Robert Pattinson. EL james wrote the porn with Rob in mind, he was her first choice.

    ROB REJECTED IT LONG AGO! No sane actor should play Rob in this movie. Thats just creepy.

    Complete BS. The only part that is slightly true is that he didn't want to be typecast, which translates to he didn't want the movie to kill his career. All along, what I've been hearing is that after talking about his decision to do it with friends/acquaintances he decided that doing the moving was not a good idea. Everyone is calling it a career ender and pretty much no one wants anything to do with it. If it even gets made, it will most likely star D listers or unknowns.

    I assure you rpatz has never crossed this guys mind ever. This movie is going to be a trainwreck, that is why he bowed out. Brilliant move. Condolences to the next sap.

    How in the hell do you become a international star doing porn? It was alright as fan fiction but I'm not wasting my money on buying the books or going to watch it (if it ever gets made).

    He jumped ship because he was being laughed at for being willing to act out badly written mommy porn. If the role would've brought him respect and credibility, he'd have done it gladly. But the giant "WHO?" from the world when his name was announced, coupled with the fact that the book was total shit, made him turn tail and run.
    Re: K – Hunnam is not a superstar. 50 Shades is not risque, it's CRAP.

    Re: Gina – If you call 50 Shades porn you need to really watch some real porn…not housewife smut.

    Also…the longer they wait on this movie the faster the bandwagon drives to the ground…they waited too long and the ship has already sailed. 50 shades is on its 19th minute of 15 mins of fame.

    "I'm taking it very seriously and intend to explore the nature of who this character is, what motivates him - and also dress up nice and look good in those suits."-Charlie. How come this statement changes abruptly Charlie?It's frustrating. We want you on this movie cuz your a good and talented actor. =(

  12. Smartyfan says – reply to this


    I love how everyone who has not read the book has an opinion. "I won't read the books or see the movie. It's nothing but porn." And you can tell it's porn how again? Ignorance is not bliss.

    I remember Gwen Paltrow rejected Titanic. But ehe would have done well

    He would have played the part ok, I am sure of it; he IS a good actor. Any dude dressed in expensive looking clothes and with reasonable figure and looks will, at the end of the day so to speak, look awesome. No big deal. What I am getting at is that the part of this Christian, who likes kinky type of sex, can be played by virtually any actor who is slim and around 6ft tall (camera tricks these days can make even Tom Cruise look taller than he is).
    The point is, this IS an erotic type of movie, going far beyond what we used to call erotic (a bit of smooching, cuddling, and some pretend sex under the sheets is the thing of the past nowadays) and depending on the rest of the people involved in making it, can be basically labelled as porn. Now, what sane actor, who makes living from acting would sacrifice his career for one porn flick, hm? And I think Mr. Hunnam is totally sane and quite intelligent. He took his time and asked for advice from people who actually care about him not the idiot manager who made him agree to it in the first place. As I said he would be good playing this part, just as many blokes would be too. What sets him apart from all the morons is that he knows what's good for him and people he cares for (including his girlfriend). All the best in the future, Charlie!

    You keep saying "LOLz" unironically.
    Please stop

    You're giving me more reasons to dislike you.

    But anyway, Charlie will be great without this. He has Pacific Rim 2 to look forward to.

    Re: CLARA – Err…Dude where the fuck have you been?? 0_o Christian Grey *IS* Robert Pattinson! This "book" is based on a twilight fanfiction…. wake up. Everything in the book is probably what EL James fantasizes Rob doing to her! And Charlie Hunnam is right to avoid this, it was not a good career move. Thank gawd he realized and saw the light!

    Don't worry Charlie, you will NEVER be on the level of Robert in any manner. Robert, 1 of a kind and hands down more gorgeous than you.

  18. Alyssa says – reply to this


    so true! Totally agree with you. People are so stupid to think that Christian is not Robert Pattinson.

  19. Devin says – reply to this


    There is a slim line between fact and fiction in the articles on this site and this one is ludicrous bullshit - C'mon, do ya think we're idiots? Not all of us are you know - except for Conrad, he's a psychopath.

  20. pudge82 says – reply to this


    Perfect cast would be Thom Evans and Emilia Clarke…boom!

  21. Katie says – reply to this


    Haha no shocker there…I'm glad he backed out of the role. He looks too old to play Christian…
