Charlie Hunnam cites Queer As Folk as proof he wasn’t afraid of Fifty Shades sex scenes

Actor Charlie Hunnam has opened up about his decision to drop out as the male lead of the film, Fifty Shades of Grey.

“Oh, it was the worst professional experience of my life,” Hunnam tells V Man. “It was the most emotionally destructive and difficult thing that I’ve ever had to deal with professionally. It was heartbreaking.”

Hunnam was replaced in the role of Christian Grey by Jamie Dornan because of a demanding work schedule that included shooting the final season of his FX series, Sons of Anarchy, then make the film Crimson Peak directed by Guillermo Del Toro.

The actor wants to make clear the decision was all about scheduling and not the explicit sex scenes in the film.

“The outside perception of that was that I got really cold feet and got scared of the explicit nature of the sexuality of the piece,” he says.

For anyone who thinks that, Hunnam points to his very explicit sex scenes as gay teen Nathan Maloney on the original Queer as Folk series in 1999-2000.

    I know a series from queer as folk but I can’t remember the name (looks like they all have the same name or something) with randy harrison and gale Harold. (Justin and brian). That series was the first and best gay themed series I have ever seen.
