Daily Mail notes Johnson and Charlie Hunnam have been cast as Anastasia and Christian Grey, much to some fans’ displeasure.
Hunnam talked about the racy role at the premiere of his show Sons of Anarchy on Saturday, saying of the sexual nature of the role, “If you look back at my history, my first job was ... Queer as Folk. It was incredibly explicit – sexual scenes with a man. If I could do it when I was 18 with a guy, I can certainly do it at 33 with a lady.”
As for his girlfriend, he said signing on to the role was a “decision we made together” and she’s a big fan of the trilogy.
“It's very hard to be with an actor. She's required to share parts of me that she wouldn't really want to share, of course. And with the certain nature of this role, it's going to be times 10,” he said.
