Charlie Hunnam Gets Affirmation That Not All '50 Shades' Fans Want Him to Quit

Flicks 15

charlie hunnam sons of anarchyWhile one camp of Fifty Shades of Grey fans seem dead set on ousting Charlie Hunnam from the film, seeing him replaced with, say, Ian Somerhalder or Matt Bomer, another group is obviously head-over-heels smitten with the actor. And I'm not talking about 30K fans of the "Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey" Facebook page. I'm talkin' fans who are clearly so over-the-moon psyched about Charlie starring in Fifty Shades they've been going so far as to ... send him lingerie!

Yup! Charlie's L.A. neighbor dished to The Daily Star, "We’ve seen frilly knickers, bras, and even stockings left at his door by some fans of the book as they try to get his attention. It has been very odd. I’ve never seen anything quite like it." Haa! Too funny.

But wait, come on ... this guy's never seen anything like it?! Didn't fans do stuff like that live and in person to rock stars in the '60s? Showering a famous hottie with sexy undies is not exactly a new concept! Nor is it really as "odd" as this neighbor guy would have us believe. We're talking about Fifty Shades here. Fans could be sending a LOT crazier items Charlie's way (riding crops, handcuffs, uh, various other X-rated toys, anyone?).

No matter, though. The "frilly knickers" are enough of an indication that there are plenty of people thrilled with the casting decision to bring Charlie on as Christian Grey. And you don't have to be one of the ladies who sent an "odd" delivery to his doorstep to know he's on the fast track to being one of the hottest, sexiest, most desired men in Hollywood. Sorry, but ... Matt and Ian who?

Do you think fans are more and more on-board with Charlie playing Christian Grey?

They would've left lingerie whether it had to do with the backlash or not. There may be a lot of it but of course it goes both ways. He is playing CG, so as I said they'd be leaving lingerie either way!

I didn't read the books until I found out the Charlie was cast in the film ( I read them all in 3 days on top of a full grad school schedule) and I am 100% confident that he will be the perfect Christian. You can't please everyone with casting, but Charlie is an actors actor. He is well read and he sees acting as an art, not just a job. I really hope that people keep an open mind -- check out The Ledge and/or Deadfall (very sexy). He is both masculine and sensitive and his acting is unparalleled by current young actors. I love me some Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer, but they are not gritty enough to be Christian

I was so upset that Charlie was going to play Christian, I was hoping for Ian all the way! But then I started watching Sons of Anarchy and FELL IN LOVE with Charlie!!!! Ian is still my favorite but Charlie will pull it off very very well! I'm still very disappointed in who they castes as Ana though!
