Charlie Hunnam left the Fifty Shades of Grey movie because of Robert Pattinson, and not because the latter is set to replace him in the project (sorry ladies).

Following the news that the Sons of Anarchy actor exited the project Saturday, sources have cast doubt on the stock "immersive TV schedule" excuse.

"He dropped out of the movie because he didn't want to be typecast," an insider says of Charlie Hunnam leaving Fifty Shades of Grey before filming began.

Specifically, referring to the Twilight star, the source adds, "He didn't want the Robert Pattinson-esque attention that would come along with this role."

Announcing the news, Universal Pictures and Focus Features released a joint statement that said his TV schedule left inadequate time for preparation.

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."

Charlie Hunnam has been cast as the lead in Fifty Shades of Grey.

But Bret Easton Ellis claims the Sons of Anarchy star was NOT the first choice of author E.L. James, who supposedly opened up to Ellis at a party this summer.

"E.L. James and I were at Rob Pattinson's house when she admitted that Rob was first choice for Christian," Ellis Tweeted soon after the major casting news broke yesterday.

The controversial Ellis - who slammed Kelly Marcel as screenwriter of Fifty Shades of Grey - also shot down a couple other contenders who had been rumored for the part of this S&S fiend:

"Ian Somerhalder never in running," he wrote. "Matt Bomer was never up for the role either."

Was the part ever offered to Pattinson? It's unclear. Would he have taken it? We doubt it, no matter how sexy the star is in this Dior Homme ad.

But would you have wanted to see Robert Pattinson as Christian Grey?

Robert Pattinson weighed in on the Fifty Shades of Grey phenomenon today at Comic-Con ... with an obvious reference to the erotic novel's sexiness.

When questioned during the Breaking Dawn: Part 2 panel, he and Kristen Stewart were mum on whether or not they've read the sex-filled bestseller.

If presented with a copy, however, he knows just what he would do.

"I would just sit there and lick the pages," Pattinson said in San Diego, adding, "What are we live on?" realizing his response would gain attention.

Stewart on the other hand, was less upbeat about the topic.

When asked if she reads the novel in a book club with Pattinson and fellow Twilight star Taylor Lautner, she said simply, "That would be disgusting."

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have been mentioned as possible leads in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, however unlikely that may seem.

Would Kristen Stewart be up for starring in Fifty Shades of Grey?

She hasn't read it yet, but she's already dying to star in a new film with boyfriend Robert Pattinson, and it's loosely based on their characters, so ... maybe!

The sexy novel trilogy by EL James, recently acquired by Universal Studios in a movie deal, was inspired by Edward and Bella from the Twilight novels.

Knowing this, could she see herself and Rob in 50 Shades?

“I’m dying to make another movie with Rob, I think that we’re a good team,” Kristen said. “I think whatever it is needs to be so ridiculously ambitious."

"So maybe! I just haven’t read it, so I don’t know too much about what it is, but I've heard good things, and would love to work with him again.”

Kristen reiterated that she "doesn't know" when asked if she could picture herself and Rob playing Christian and Anastasia in 50 Shades of Grey.

You can see why the idea appeals to many fans, however - as does another faux vampire combo in The Vampire Diaries' Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev.

In the book, Ana (based off of Bella) falls for Christian (based on Edward Cullen), a rich 27-year-old entrepreneur who introduces her into his erotic world of S&M.
