Los Angeles: Actor Charlie Hunnam, while reasoning his exit from 'Fifty Shades of Grey', says doing the film after completing drama 'Sons of Anarchy' would have been stressful.
The 34-year-old actor was to start filming 'Fifty Shades...' five days after finishing 'Sons of Anarchy', where he played psychopath.
Hunnam said he needed a break between the two projects, reported Us magazine. "I was going to finish playing a psychopath who'd just lost his wife (in 'Sons...'), and five days later I'd be on set playing Christian Grey. I was like, 'This is going to be a ... Disaster.' It was the opposite of how I've tried to ground my career, not stretch myself too thin, and always do my homework," he said.
Hunnam added there is a tendency in Hollywood machinery to take on too much. You end up not being able to give everything you want."
Ultimately, the role of Christian Grey went to 'Once Upon a Time' actor Jamie Dornan, who will star opposite Dakota Johnson in the erotic-romance, set to hit theatres on February 14, 2015.
