Great news! HollywoodLife.com caught up EXCLUSIVELY with the new star of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and what he had to say about his sexy co-star has us VERY excited about the steamy scenes to come.
Though some fans criticized the decision to cast Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, the only thing that really matters is if they can capture the bold sexiness and passionate chemistry of the characters in the book.
Charlie Hunnam & Dakota Johnson: ‘Chemistry’ In ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’
And after HollywoodLife.com spoke to Charlie exclusively, we’re confident that the movie will be just as steamy as the book!
Read all about Charlie’s journey to becoming Christian Grey, and to striking up an on-screen romantic match with Dakota below:
I met with Sam Taylor-Johnson a couple of times. She’d asked to meet me and we talked at length about the role, the movie and what her intention was. I felt really intrigued and excited about it so I went and read the first book to get a clearer idea of who this character was and I felt even more excited at the prospect of bringing him to life and so I called her and I said, “Listen, it’s a big commitment.” In success they’re going to want to make three of these films and I’m just coming out of a seven-year commitment on [Sons of Anarchy] and so I said, ‘You know it’s not something I can just lightly walk into.” I asked her if she wouldn’t mind doing a work session so I could work with her and bring him to life and see how he felt. And so we did that and the next day after that work session she felt very sure that she definitely wanted to hire me. I was really eager then to see who the girl would be because I think it’s essential that there’s some tangible chemistry — I’m kind of very cautious and studied about the decisions I make in my career, so we kind of both suggested I do a reading with Dakota, who was her favorite. And as soon as we got in the room and I started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it because there’s just like a tangible chemistry between us. It felt exciting and fun and weird and compelling, so that was it.
That’s all we need to hear, Charlie! He and Dakota definitely have the sexy looks to play the part, now that we know they’re going to have the sexy chemistry down pat, we’re itching to see Fifty Shades of Grey even more.
