Charlie Hunnam

Bails on 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie

Sorry ladies ... Charlie Hunnam has just dropped out of the big screen adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey" -- and it's all because of his role on "Sons of Anarchy."

According to reports ... the decision was made because Hunnam wasn't able to "adequately prepare" for the role due to his "immersive" TV schedule.

Makes sense, since filming was supposed to begin on the movie later this month -- but just days ago Hunnam was talking up how seriously he had been taking the role ... so it's pretty surprising.

Ian Somerhalder, your move.

That whole thing is a little far fetched. Some of you are just going to have to trust me on that. There is no such thing as Mr Beautiful Millionaire Get Wet In Your Nether Regions Just By Thinking Of Him. The whole thing would be far more realistic with an average looking guy who the audience had to look into to find the attraction. If you think that whole scene is populated by the Beautiful People you are sadly mistaken. Seriously.

I strongly believe that he was pushed aside after they realised the immense backlash against him for this role. He is not right for the part. Plus it would have ruined his image for sure. I gave up on Sons of Anarchy a little while ago, although I realise it has a huge following because of him. I just lost interest in it (when they switched to Ireland for awhile didn't help).
