Charlie Hunnam‘s about to become the hunky S&M poster boy for girls, mums and probably their grannies across the globe in the long-awaited adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey, but the strip-happy star seems to have had a crisis of confidence.
Depsite owning an incredibly handsome face, buff body and piercing gaze (which, by the way, you can drool over in bad boy biker series Sons Of Anarchy) Mr Christian Grey isn’t sure he’ll live up to ladies’ fantasties.
“There are so many fans of that book and I know that on the surface, I’m probably not what everybody imagined,” the Geordie hunk told Entertainment Weekly.
“Because reading is so personal and people bring a character to life in their imagination, they feel ownership over that character. That’s daunting if I allowed myself to think about it too much,” he confessed.
But Charlie needn’t worry, his huge rippling muscles and smouldering stare are sure to satisfy our 50 Shades expectations. Especially if he takes the red room of pain as passionately as his latest acting role.
“I’m taking it very seriously and intend to explore the nature of who this character is, what motivates him – and also dress up nice and look good in those suits.”
And look good you will Mr Hunnam. Lucky, lucky Dakota Johnson…
