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.
