While 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?
