Rumors that Charlie Hunnam is quitting the Fifty Shades of Grey movie have surfaced in recent days. The alleged reason? The widespread fan discontent.
While that is undeniably the reason for the rumors themselves - you wouldn't hear such rumors over The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder - it's untrue.
Some are even brainstorming who should play Christian Grey if Hunnam walks. While absurd, that does tell you a lot about how his casting was received.
Like it or not, though, Hunnam and Dakota Johnson will star in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. He was hanging with E.L. James only a few days ago.
The book's author tweeted, "Guess who" alongside a photo of Charlie's forearm tattoo that his character, Jax Teller, wears on FX's Sons of Anarchy.
