'50 Shades' Author E.L. James Responds to Major Casting Change

GossipMonger 71

Charlie HunnamThe fans' reaction to Charlie Hunnam's departure from the Fifty Shades of Grey movie sounded like an explosion. My ears are still ringing! But the most interesting reaction of all might have come from E.L. James herself.

You know, the author of the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy? She's been pretty darn vocal about her preference for Robert Pattinson to play the role of Christian Grey in the film, so what did she have to say about the Sons of Anarchy star hitting the highway?

More From the Stir: Charlie Hunnam Officially Drops Out of '50 Shades' & Opens Door for ... Who?

In a series of tweets that went up yesterday, James first sounded a bit gleeful ... and then got down to business. Take a look:




Professional, but ... with a hint of happiness, perhaps?

What do you think of E.L. James' response to Charlie Hunnam not playing Christian Grey?

He doesnt want to bloody do it though, him nor that matt guy. I dont care who does it so long as its not that plank Robert.

I don't think Robert is sexy enough. He was great as Edward, but as Christian, we need a bit more sexy.

Apparantly NOBODY listens...Ian and Matt and Henry said they are TOO BUSY to do this movie and if Robert is doing this...I AM NOT WATCHING THIS MOVIE!

I am absolutely heartbroken about charlies choice not to do this movie anymore. He was the only talented actor suitable to do this role as the other actors so called fans wanted could not act if their lives depended on it

I am heartbroken that Charlie is no longer doing this movie as he is the only actor suitable for this role. Not only is he and amazing actor he is also extremely attractive instead it is just going to end up being some talentless wooden actor that can't act if their lives depended on it ie Robert, Matt, Ian etc etc etc
