Sorry, ladies, but the only Charlie Hunnam nudity you’re going to see is Jax Teller’s bare ass.

“The filmmakers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam’s immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey.” (Via)

Deadline adds, “All of this scheduling stuff had already been figured out before he made the deal to star with Dakota Johnson. It seems more likely that Hunnam had time to think about it, and decided the role didn’t fit him like that Sons leather jacket he wears. There is a lot of nudity in the film, and calls for the kind of things that might make a veteran actor like Hunnam uncomfortable.” In other words, he’s tired of being crushed under the pressure of horny middle-aged women who believe in nothing…other than drinking bottles of wine before 10 a.m. *nose flare*
