Matt Bomer Responds To Crazy Fifty Shades Fans

matt bomer US open

Matt Bomer heard about that super important online petition to re-cast him as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey film. Fans of the book are actually super pissed that Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam are the leads. They would prefer Matt Bomer and Alexis Bledel, and they actually believe if they have enough signatures, they’ll get the film re-cast.

Mr. Bomer was super polite in his response to the madness. From ETonline via Entertainment Weekly,

I’m so grateful for the fans and touched. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota.

Think they’ll stop now? I doubt it. As of now the petition has close to 57,000 supporters and will likely hit 60,000 by the end of the day.

Does anyone really care this much? Anyone bothered by the casting? If so, are you team Bomer or do you just want anyone other than Hunnam?

  • Ugh, this fills me with so much disgust I can’t even…gah! What the f–k is the matter with these women? Are their lives so pathetic that they think starting an online petition (on a site that i once thought was dedicated to bringing attention to political injustice, human rights abuses and animal cruelty…or am I only kidding myself?) that they think complaining will change the outcome for a film – one that is based on a crappy book that was inspired by another, equally shitty series?

    Sure ladies, keep complaining and pining over having Matt (who is now openly gay, btw) play CG, even though he probably has too much self-respect to ever have auditioned for the part!

    Honestly, the things people obsess over nowadays just leaves me shaking my head.

  • Bloody hell that is so dumb, do they really think they are going to have the film re-cast?? Do you all think Alexis Bledel would agree to be in Fifty Shades?? Haha.

  • Really I think it’s not a coincidence that almost all the Fifty Shades Of Grey fans are against that choice. It seems the Youtube video made a real buzz for Matt and Alexis and impacted all the readers imagination so they cant now imagine someone else in the movie. but Honestly I dont know how the producers and movie makers will deal with Hunnam as Grey because he doesn’t have the same shape and not even the same description in the books.
