Charlie Hunnam Speaks Out On 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Role!

So what's going to give Sons of Anarchy star, Charlie Hunnam the edge when he plays Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shade Of Grey??

Would you believe it's all the practice he had doing gay sex scenes? Do tell.

Hunnam explains to The Hollywood Reporter

"My first job was on a Channel 4 miniseries called Queer as Folk. It was incredibly explicit sexual scenes with a man," Hunnam said. "I mean I'm 16 and 17 years wiser now. So if I could do it when I was 18 with a guy, I can certainly do it at 33 with a lady."

It also doesn't hurt that according to Charlie, he and Dakota Johnson (who's playing Anastasia)  have "tangible chemistry."

"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," Hunnam told The Hollywood Reporter. "It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it."

It looks like Charlie's ready to go to the distance and he won't be holding back from the film's racy sexual material. Thankfully, he has the blessing of his girlfriend, who's a fan of the books. 

Hunnam explains, "It's very hard to be with an actor. She's required to share parts of me that she wouldn't really want to share. With the nature of this role, that's going to be times 10."
Sharing is caring, Charlie!!
