Charlie Hunnam Has “Chemistry” with ’50 Shades of Grey’ Co-Star Dakota Johnson

Well, I’ll say this: I fucking hope so, considering! First of all, the 50 Shades of Grey movie is going to be an absolute disaster. The book was a disaster (and – on principle as an intelligent human being who has a better imagination than that in a modified piece of Twilight porn – I absolutely refused to read it) and the movie will follow suit. That being said, it will make MILLIONS from desperate middle-aged housewives whose husbands aren’t exciting them sexually anymore, and Charlie Hunnam and Dakota Johnson must be seeing the dollar signs in their eyes – they’re going to be filthy rich.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

“As soon as we got in the room and started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us,” Hunnam told The Hollywood Reporter and handful of reporters. “It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it.”

“I went and read the first book to get a clearer idea of who this character was, and felt even more excited about the prospect of bringing him to life.”

Oh, I bet it was “exciting”.  I bet the idea of S&M – so long as you’re in the “S” bracket – is super “compelling” and really gets you going. Not that I’m insinuating that Charlie Hunnam is some kind of sadist sicko in real life, as I’m sure this is all about the money he stands to make (don’t forget, this is a trilogy). However, it just seems like icing on the cake that he gets to film a bunch of raunchy sex scenes in which he’s in control of a woman. I dunno, I’m probably just being a pessimist – wouldn’t be the first time, admittedly.

So, Evil Beeters… do any of you actually LIKE this series? If so, can you explain to me the fucking point? Because I just honestly don’t get it in the slightest. Maybe I need to kickstart my own porn writing career, only mine would be a steamy re-telling of The X-Files instead of Twilight. Mulder and Scully? I mean, er… Roberts and Williams? Oh yeah, they’re freaky.

  • i don’t get it….won’t read it….i do know he’s a shite actor in that new flick Pacific Rim. but he’s great spank bank material as they say, so eh, do your thing, charlie. he did smile at me once while they were filming Sons Of Anarchy outside my office. internally lost my shit, i admit it. me thinks he’d have chemistry with anyone & everyone; the smile was that hot. OK fuck it, i will see this garbage movie.

    • I didn’t get it either. I actually just read the book though (planning on gathering more ammunition to make fun of it with) and didn’t hate it.

      Believe me, it’s not good literature. But it’s not nearly as terrible as everyone pretends it is. It’s actually much better written and more compelling than Twilight which is impressive since it started as a Twilight fanfic. It ends on a cliff hanger sort of and while I have no interest in reading the other two books in the series, I don’t regret reading it through.

      In response to the actual blog post, way to shame S&M Jennifer. You know there ARE women who are dominant as well as submissive women who enjoy S&M just as much as dominant men. You say you’re not insinuating Hunnam is “some kind of sadist sicko” except that that’s exactly what you do.

      This is such an uninformed post on your part.

      • Yes but you can’t reaaaaaaaaaaally ignore the fact that there are many men who enjoy controlling women in bed, and just because it’s a kink it doesn’t mean it’s critic-free. In a society where sexism and misogyny are rampant, being suspicious of men who like to degrade women in bed –even if it’s consensual– is not shaming, it is a legitimate concern. Also, apparently this book isn’t a good example of BDSM because the acts many times aren’t consensual and it’s borderline abusive.

    • Internally lost your shit? Am I right that externally you left a puddle? I kid, or course…… Havent read the book, won’t see the movie.

  • I haven’t read the book either, but I think you calling it a disaster when YOU haven’t read it is a bit unfair. I have no interest in twilight fan fiction or S&M material but I do not judge those who do like it. However, when I say twilight was a disaster and reads like a fifth grader wrote it, that comes from the fact that I’ve actually read it. You can’t say something is terrible if you’ve never read it… I mean you can I guess, free world, but it doesn’t come off well.
