Charlie Hunnam Talks "Tangible Chemistry" with Dakota Johnson for "Fifty Shades of Grey"

Charlie Hunnam Talks

Gearing up for the new fall season, Charlie Hunnam attended the “Sons of Anarchy” season 6 premiere at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Saturday (September 7).

The “Pacific Rim” star looked dashing on the red carpet in a gray suit and matching tie as he sported his biker scruff and slicked-back hair for the occasion.

At the event, the 33-year-old actor talked about his upcoming role in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” explaining, “As soon as we got in the room and started reading with Dakota [Johnson], I knew that I definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us. It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it.”

Speaking about his introduction to the role, Charlie shared, “I went and read the first book to get a clearer idea of who this character was, and felt even more excited about the prospect of bringing him to life.”

Undeterred by the risque material, the newest sex symbol noted, “My first job was on a Channel 4 miniseries called “Queer as Folk.” It was incredibly explicit sexual scenes with a man. I mean Im 16 and 17 years wiser now. So if I could do it when I was 18 with a guy, I can certainly do it at 33 with a lady.
