Charlie Hunnam On Fifty Shades Of Heartbreak
Actor says he was devastated to leave movie project...
Seven months after his dramatic departure from the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey, Charlie Hunnam has been opening up on his feelings about leaving the project.
Speaking to Life & Style, the British actor insisted that he had been keen to portray Christian Grey on the big screen - and was "heartbroken" not to do so.
"I felt like I had an interesting take on that character and felt like I could have done a good job of playing Christian Grey, otherwise I wouldn't have taken it on in the first place," he declared.
"When you put the time into something like that and a character comes alive in your mind, it's heartbreaking not to be able to play him.
"It was definitely kind of heartbreaking having to say goodbye to that character and not bring it to life."
However the reasons for his exit from the project remain shrouded in mystery, with a scheduling conflict with Sons Of Anarchy and another job being the official excuse.
Other reports at the time pointed the finger at the publicity surrounding the film - with the implication that Hunnam had become overwhelmed.
He was replaced by Jamie Dornan in the role.
