Robert Pattinson: Devastated, Angry Over Loss of Christian Grey Role?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Robert Pattinson is one angry hunk.

Over rumors that Kristen Stewart wants to date Zac Efron? No. Well, maybe.

But the real source of the actor's alleged contention is him being passed over for the steamy, sought-after role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey.

And for Charlie Hunnam of all people!

"Rob was dying to play" this iconic part, an insider claims to The National Enquirer.

He's “angrily telling pals it’s one thing to lose this plum role to an established star, like, say, Channing Tatum, but to lose it to some unknown actor is downright insulting."

It's unclear, of course, whether Pattinson was even up for Christian, though Bret Easton Ellis claims he was author E.L. James' first choice to portray the lead male opposite Dakota Johnson's Ana.

Do you believe that Robert is pissed over his non-50 Shades casting?

Neither do we. But hey, it makes for fun speculation, doesn't it?

Would you have wanted to see him as Christian Grey?
