Back when 50 Shades of Grey was being film, Sons of Anarchy was coming to an end.; Charlie Hunnam, who played Jax Teller in SOA had been cast as 50 Shades of Grey‘s Christian Grey. But something happened and he dropped out of the movie blaming scheduling conflicts and anxiety issues as reasons.
It has recently come up that Charlie Hunnum still hasn’t seen Fifty Shades of Grey–because he isn’t over giving up the role of Christian Grey. “That was a somewhat traumatic experience for me,” he admits to Elle magazine. “I didn’t want to open that wound.” The Sons of Anarchy star also reveals that he has a difficult time filming love scenes. “Because I’m in a very committed relationship, and I’m also cognizant that it’s not my girlfriend’s favorite part of my job,” he explains. “It’s a delicate balance to strike–to be emotionally open enough to have an experience that feels honest between two people but also maintain that it’s just for the film. It’s not my favorite thing to do.” The self-described “germaphobe” adds, “I don’t want to kiss anyone but my girlfriend [Morgana McNelis] for my whole life… The point is, everyone thinks it’s great to be an actor and get to kiss a bunch of beautiful actresses in films, but I actually hate it.”
