Following the huge global success of the hit EL James novel Fifty Shades of Grey, it was no real surprise when it was announced that a Fifty Shades of Grey movie was being made. This news led to plenty of rumours about which stars would be cast in the lead role and there were quite a lot of raised eyebrows, when it was announced that Charlie Hunnam had been cast as Christian Grey, with Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele.

However, just a few days later and it was announced that Charlie Hunnam had decided to leave the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, as he felt his demanding schedule had become too much for him. Charlie has now opened up about his decision to exit the project, admitting that he was very much looking forward to playing Christian Grey and found it heartbreaking to walk away from the character.
 
Hunnam told Life & Style, "I felt like I had an interesting take on that character and felt like I could have done a good job of playing Christian Grey, otherwise I wouldn't have taken it on in the first place. When you put the time into something like that and a character comes alive in your mind, it's heartbreaking not to be able to play him. It was definitely kind of heartbreaking having to say goodbye to that character and not bring it to life."

It did not take long for them to find a replacement actor to play Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, with Jamie Dornan being brought in to take over from Charlie Hunnam. Fifty Shades of Grey will open on February 13 in both the US and the UK.
