More and more, it’s starting to look like Charlie Hunnam really did quit Fifty Shades of Grey, even though the early speculation had him getting fired from the movie. After all, his ‘official’ reason for leaving the franchise was ‘scheduling conflicts’, but we know that was a load of crap. For one thing, the studio would have made sure that scheduling was sorted out before Charlie signed the contracts, and for another, scheduling conflict is always used as an excuse whenever there’s more contentious disagreements beneath the surface.
Charlie has opened up a little about his experience with the project, and he’s had nothing but praise for the film’s director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, and his replacement, Jamie Dornan. However, in a new interview with Moviefone, he explains that he had a nervous breakdown while trying to deal with the pressure from the project – which then led to him quitting.
