There's been a lot of speculation over why Charlie Hunnam decided not to put on a slick suit and pick up the whip for "Fifty Shades of Grey" — especially since one peek at his "Queer as Folk" days proved he's, uh, not at all shy about gettin' busy for the cameras — but now the actor himself has finally spoken up with his side of things.
Apparently, it wasn't all those ravenous anti-him-as-Christian Grey petitioners or that supposedly bogus paycheck which made him flaccid on the pic, but rather his obligation to be a good family man? What.
Speaking to E! Online at a recent charity event, Hunnam reportedly revealed that the passing of his father in May of this year has taken its toll on his family and that he's been putting all his focus on that and the conclusion of his long-time TV series "Sons of Anarchy."
So, basically, »

The Sons of Anarchy star will no longer play S&M dreamboat Christian Grey in the Hollywood adaptation of El James's bestselling book
• Fifty Shades of Grey fans launch online petition protesting film casting
Appearance: Almost permanently topless, if you'd believe the internet.
This guy's got big things ahead of him. The Fifty Shades of Grey film is going to make him a megastar. Yeah, about that ...
Oh, no! They're not making the Fifty Shades of Grey film? But what will I take my mum to see on her birthday now? Relax, they're still making it. But Charlie Hunnam will no longer play the dreamily abusive sado-masochistic billionaire pin-up Christian Grey.
He won't? But isn't shooting supposed to start really soon? The film is being released in nine and a half months, so his timing could have been better. »
Zero Dark Thirty star to play Anastasia Steele's mother in big-screen adaptation of erotic literary blockbuster
• News: Fans protest 50 Shades casting
Ehle, known for turns in Zero Dark Thirty, Contagion, Possession and the 1995 TV version of Pride and Prejudice, will play the mother of blushing virgin Anastasia Steele. The character, Carla May Wilks, is described as a flighty and self-centred woman who enjoys turning her hobbies into ill-fated business schemes.
Fifty Shades centres on kinky billionaire Christian Grey's recruitment of Anastasia to be his well-remunerated sexual submissive. Author El James, whose steamy novel has sold more than 70m copies worldwide, revealed last month that Charlie Hunnam will play Grey and Dakota Johnson will portray Anastasia Steele in the big-screen adaptation. »

Let’s face it the whole film and TV production and marketing process is skewed so that audiences are far more likely to recognise and follow a supporting actor who cropped up in a handful of TV episodes than they are some of the people behind the camera on some massively popular movies. Of course, most of us are switched on enough to pay attention to movie directors and assume their name as a mark of the film’s likely eventual quality.
This makes us well aware of the times when A-list acting talent choose to direct as well, your Clooneys or Afflecks. But, when it comes to the people who pen the words that you actually hear those actors say, there are really only a handful of Hollywood screenwriters whose contributions are as noted as actors or directors. Perhaps that’s why these five writers behind some pretty significant »

Last week Universal Pictures announced that it finally found its two leads in Sam Taylor-Johnson's (Nowhere Boy) adaptation of E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey in Charlie Hunnam (Pacific Rim) and Dakota Johnson (The Social Network), and now the British actor has spoken about taking on the role of Christian Grey during the season six premiere of FX's hit series Sons of Anarchy.
"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," says Hunnam via The Hollywood Reporter. "It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it."
Hunnam then went on to explain his research for the role, as well as his thoughts on realising the book's explicit material. "I went and read the first book to get a clearer »

Los Angeles (AP) — Charlie Hunnam will likely have to bare all and engage in some very graphic sex scenes as the leading man in "50 Shades of Grey," but he says it's not a new dimension for him. "You know what, I had such a baptism of fire with regards to sexuality on camera at the beginning of my career," explained Huunam. "I starred in the British channel Four miniseries 'Queer As Folk' where I played a young, gay character and there were some incredible, explicit sex scenes on that show. So I feel, and now I am 16 years »

While at the Season 6 premiere of "Sons of Anarchy" on Saturday, September 7, the 33-year-old actor addressed the casting news for the first time. One of the main draws of the part, he revealed to reporters on the red carpet, is the chemistry he shares with co-star Dakota Johnson, who will play Grey's young love interest, Anastasia Steele.
"[Director Sam Taylor-Johnson and I] kind of both suggested I do a reading with Dakota, who was her favorite, and as soon as we got in the room and I started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it," he said. "There's just like a tangible chemistry between us. It felt exciting and fun and weird and compelling."
When it comes to their sex scenes, Hunnam is more than ready. "If you look back in my history, »

London, Sep 9: Charlie Hunnam has revealed that filming for his upcoming flick, based on the erotic novel 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' would not be an issue, as he is used to doing sexually explicit scenes.
The 'Sons of Anarchy' star said that his first job was on a Channel 4 miniseries called 'Queer as Folk,' where he played a young gay man, who had to do incredibly explicit scenes with another man, the Mirror reported.
The 33-year-old actor said that if he could do the X-rated scenes with a guy, when he was 18-years-old, then he could certainly do it with a lady now. (Ani) »

Speaking about his previous roles, Hunnam told The AP: "You know what, I had such a baptism of fire with regards to sexuality on camera at the beginning of my career.
"Now I am 16 years older and more mature so I don't anticipate them being too much of a problem. It's like anything else, just an exciting challenge."
Hunnam added that his long-term partner Morgana McNelis may not be able to watch his sex scenes on camera with Johnson. »
Charlie Hunnam is ready to bring the erotically charged role of Christian Grey to life - especially after meeting his costar. The Sons of Anarchy star was officially cast Monday - along with Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele - for the film adaptation of E L James's Fifty Shades of Grey. Hunnam, 33, admits that after reading the book and meeting with the film's director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, he was intrigued but needed more to seal the deal. "We both suggested I do a reading with Dakota, who was her favorite. As soon as we got in the room, I knew »

Chances are, when you think of the newly-crowned lead in "Fifty Shades of Grey" Charlie Hunnam, your mind immediately goes to leather, bikes and beards a la "Sons of Anarchy" because that show's what's made him a somebody in the States. With only that in mind, it's no wonder fans are raising the petition pitchforks over Hunnam taking the reins — both proverbially and literally in some instances — for "Fifty Shades."
But like his sex slave-to-be leading lady Dakota Johnson, Mr. Hunnam's also got a little screen history of gettin' down and dirty, especially when you look at his old semi-voyeuristic work on the U.K. TV series "Queer As Folk."
Here we boil down a few of his most relevant hot and heavy moments from "Q.A.F." to give you a gander at some of Hunnam's humina humina-ness before he goes and suits up as your favorite naughty billionaire Christian Grey. »

Ryan Steele talks with Out about his upcoming movie, Five Dances, in which he plays an 18-year-old ballet dancer from Kansas who leaves his life behind to head to New York to pursue his dream and has an affair with another dancer. He’s not worried about the steamy nature of the movie. “I don’t think it’s anything that’ll hurt my career. It just might give me a different sort of fan base. Dancers have a certain amount of comfort that’s a little weird to normal people. We’re physical people. We’re always changing in front of each other. There are no secrets in a dance company.”

Charlie Hunnam: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ gets its Christian Grey (photo: shirtless Charlie Hunnam in ‘Pacific Rim’) In the last couple of weeks, the world has been rocked by several revelations that have left earthlings — depending on their particular expectations, prejudices, and mental health — infuriated, terrified, shocked, thrilled. Am I referring to the reported chemical attacks in Syria and the Obama administration’s determination that the U.S. should get involved in that country’s bloody civil war? Syrius Chemical Civil War? Is Obama endorsing a new video game? Is it in 3D? Nope, that’s not what I’m talking about. Nor am I referring to the ivory trade and the relentless poaching of African elephants, which will quite possibly lead to their extinction in the very, very near future. Or to the nearly 1,000 manatees and dolphins that have met with slow and agonizing deaths in Florida’s grossly polluted waterways. »

Charlie Hunnam is hardly an unknown: The 33-year-old British actor stars in one of the biggest shows on cable, Sons of Anarchy, and he played the lead in this summer's $100 million-grossing sci-fi vehicle Pacific Rim. Still, yesterday's announcement that he'll play the dominant, damaged Christian Grey in the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey means that Hunnam is about to become a lot more famous very quickly, since everyone and their mother had an opinion on who should be cast as Grey, a wealthy mogul who embarks on a sexy, sadomasochistic relationship with wide-eyed Anastasia Steele (to be played by Ben and Kate's Dakota Johnson). It also marks things coming full circle for the actor who, in his first big TV credit — the original U.K. version of Queer As Folk — played a tentative young student in the thrall of a highly sexual older man; essentially, that »
