Charlie Hunnam's Sexy Promise Will Thrill '50 Shades of Grey' Fans

Flicks 49

charlie hunnam comic-conEver since being cast as Christian Grey, Charlie Hunnam is under the microscope in a crazy way, like never before. But he seems to be handling it with serious grace and is coming off as cool as a cucumber -- even when approached with steamy subjects. For instance, when The Sun asserted that Charlie promised producers he'd go the "full monty" in the flick, grinning and baring it all, the actor confirmed the buzz. "I'll never use a body double. I’m not worried," he said. Whoohoo!

Come on, was that even really a question, though? If you've followed his career or know even a little bit about it, it's kinda unsurprising to hear he's so comfortable with nudity.

As the future Mr. Grey explained to the AP:

You know what, I had such a baptism of fire with regards to sexuality on camera at the beginning of my career. I starred in the British Channel 4 miniseries Queer as Folk, where I played a young, gay character, and there were some incredible, explicit sex scenes on that show. Now I am 16 years older and more mature so I don’t anticipate them being too much of a problem. It’s like anything else, just an exciting challenge.

Ha, how quaint it is that he's even calling it a challenge. The guy is an old hat at dropping trou! And for that, fans should be thrilled, over-the-moon, elated -- albeit not necessarily surprised! And I'm sure it also explains one of the big reasons why director Sam Taylor-Johnson and the producers were drawn to Charlie as Christian. His resume certainly speaks to being comfortable -- not to mention HIGHLY aesthetically-pleasing -- in the buff.

Are you psyched to hear Charlie doesn't plan to use a body double?

That's great that he plans on using his actual body, however, what were they thinking on hiring him for the part???  He's not breathless like Christian!  They will have to do a lot work to give him the look most of us women picture.

I'm 50 Shades of tired of heading about this. He's cast. Get over it. It's gonna suck. Move on.

Sorry but Charlie, is "SEXY" as hell and he's going to nail the part If there was any thought that he wasn't they would not have wanted him in the first place... Just and believe he's got the look!!!

I thought Henry Cavill was the perfect fit for Christian but after watching Charlie's movies I knew they hired the right actor for FSOG. Henry or Matt Bomer won't pull off the most important part of CG. Hunnam has this natural air of dominance and a very versatile actor. I always thought Cavill is the hottest man on the planet but oh boy I was dead wrong Charlie Hunnam is the hottest and sexiest man alive!

Well said Brenda! I couldn't have said it better myself. I was most definitely was a Henry fan but Charlie really is the best person for the role and when he is clean shaven with short hair he is really, really hot!

Love how they have to post a million times.."if you were skeptical, watch this! or see this!" to try to get us to start liking these two for the part. If you are sooo confident you picked the right people, then stop trying so hard to get us to like them too. They are ALL WRONG and no amount of articles are going to get us that dont want them to suddenly like them. I dont care what they did in their past or how hot they are..blah blah blah, they are wrong. Done.

Tracy, those who chose Charlie and Dakota for these parts are not who is posting this stuff. Those behind this website are completely independent of those making the movie. And really there is no reason for you to be nasty.

Lisa Conner Helms

OMG...Can't wait, He will be amazing :)

Beth Smith

No, he is not sexy.

Nobody forcing you to like them or accept them obviously they are the right people for the role. So many people don't know anything about them including myself so I did my own researched first by watching some of Charlie's movies. Let me tell you it took only 10 minutes and I already in love with him. Charlie Hunnam is so magnetic charming and his sex appeal is so strong. Some of those pictures on google don't do him justice! He is gorgeous!
