Brad Pitt Vs. Charlie Hunnam: Who’s the Better Christian Grey? (PHOTOS)

Yum! 51

brad pittIf we were back in the early '90s and Fifty Shades of Grey was the phenomenon it is now back then, I bet we'd be looking at none other than Brad Pitt to play Christian Grey. I'm talking his Thelma & Louise days -- back when he dated Juliette Lewis and was a little more wild and fancy-free. I can't help but feel that Brad is looking at Charlie Hunnam and thinking ... I did that. I was that. I am still that.

"That" being the impossibly sexy that can't really be defined -- that which is all that Charlie Hunnam is. So Brad did what any man of his age would do.

He started doing his hair just like Charlie. Sure it could be for a movie, but don't you think Brad's got control over all that now? He knows what hot (he's with Angelina Jolie!) and he knows what's cool (he named his kids Knox, Maddox, Shiloh, Vivienne, Zahara, and Pax) and he probably sees a bit of his younger self in one Charlie Hunnam. What Brad says goes, so if he says I want my hair to look like Charlie Hunnam's, then Brad's hair shall look like Charlie Hunnam's!

Behold. And compare the hair. And those baby blues. Those lips. The dirty blond hair. The ... ohh ....

Ohhh Charlie.

I'm not giving away my age but I'm somewhere between 49-year-old Brad and 33-year-old Charlie. Which means that Brad Pitt is kind of old enough to be his dad (if he had a kid at 16). Which completely freaks me out. And in this case, I'm going younger. I'm going with Charlie.

Sorry, Brad. You've been replaced. No competition. And not even a similar hairstyle is going to take him to the level of excitement and anticipation we are all having for Mr. Hunnam right now. Laters baby.

What do you think of Brad's "Charlie Hunnam hairstyle"? And more importantly, if you had to pick, would it be Brad or Charlie?

Charlie, I liked Brad in Thelma & Louise , he was such a bad boy , now he's a dad its all over for him , just kidding lol

Neither! Charlie is the perfect Elliot though. Fits that character to a T. He isn't beautiful enough to be Christian in my eyes and being already 6 yrs older than CG shows and it will only get worse if they even make films 2 and 3. I never really got on the "Brad Pitt is so hot bandwagon". To be honest, he doesn't do anything for me.

I think between these two charlie is the best one for christian. I just thank the Lord that they didn't let Robert pattenson and Kristen Stewart be the main characters.. I wouldn't go see it if it was them.. But I seriously can't wait till this movie comes out. I'm majorly addicted to these books. <3 for sure reading them again.

I would pick Charlie without a second thought!!!! Sure Brad is cute bit to me Charlie is the definition of sexy!!!!!! I have been a fan of Charlie's for a very long time and I'm so looking forward to seeing him in some of those sexy poses!!!!! Charlie is an amazing actor and has so much heart!!! When he takes on a part he really tries to become the character and bring him to life and he has been successful every time!!!! Now I can't lie Matt Bomer was the man I was picturing as I was reading the books. He had the looks down perfectly so way before I even knew they was going to make a movie of the books that was my Mr. Grey!!! But Charlie is way better looking and has the body of a God!!!! So I hope that everyone can learn to respect the choices of the casting crew and E.L. James. I know once the movie has been released everyone is going to be regretting all the crap they talked and how they put Charlie down!!! Charlie is going to make us all proud and drool!!!!!
