In an interview with Elle Canada, Charlie Hunnam got candid about masculinity and his willingness to strip down in front of the camera. When asked about his shirtless Calvin Klein Reveal campaign and his many sexy moments on Sons of Anarchy, Charlie said, "The level of nudity that I do now, which is taking my shirt off, doesn't bother me at all."

And as for whether he'd go full frontal again? "I don't know," Charlie said. "I'm sure I would. I have nothing to hide."

Charlie Hunnam has said that he hasn't ruled out appearing full frontal nude on-screen.

In late 2013, Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson joined the cast, which, at that time, only included Benedict Cumberbatch in the lead. Then, in December, Sienna Miller was reportedly grafted onto the project in a minor role, with outlets announcing that production would commence in summer 2015.
Was that imminent lensing date a motivating factor for acquiring a new leading man? Either way, Deadline reports that Cumberbatch is off the project and Sons Of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam is taking his place. It’s likely that the former has had to reshuffle his pending projects due to his Marvel commitments on Doctor Strange.
