Gay Sex Scenes In “Queer As Folk” Prepared Charlie Hunnam For “50 Shades of Grey”

charlie-hunnam-My first job was on a Channel 4 miniseries called Queer as Folk. It was incredibly explicit sexual scenes with a man. I mean I’m 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.”

Charlie Hunnam speaking with The Hollywood Reporter about how he’ll handle the racy scenes as billionaire Christian Grey in the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey.

      Our little Nathan is all grown up! /sniffles/

      I had no idea he was Nathan which is even more shocking. Nathan certainly has filled out quite nicely.

      I’m generally not attracted to blond guys, but Charlie is about as perfect as a human can get.

      In that pic he looks like a cross between Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise.

      This guy is ugly, people. A lot of women want Matt Bomer playing Christian Grey, NOT him. He looks like a hobo. He’s just YUCK! My boyfriend is blond so that’s not the reason he grosses me out. He just doesn’t look good! He looks like a homeless psycho. They don’t come uglier than this. No, sir, they don’t. Ewww!!!

      I think he looks pretty damned good myself. Being totally honest I think he is sexier without the scruff, but still sexy either way. Just goes to show different tastes for different folks.

      No. He’s ugly either way. The only way he can ever get me hard is if he freezes me!!!

      Hunnam is incredibly sexy now. I’m sure he’ll do this role well.

      @Dxley:

      I know nothing about 50 Shades of Grey except that it seems like every frustrated housewife in the country seemed to be reading it. Since it supposedly appeals to women then Bomer would probably be a good choice. However watching Bomer in Magic Mike I was shocked at the absolute zero level of sexual chemistry he seemed to be able to put out on screen. Women seem to love that, but again, as a guy, he just came off as vacant. Maybe being a closeted actor for so long he got used to sort of neutering himself and now that he is out it will be different. But again, this actor at least looks like he has sex.

      That said….who really gives a shit about a 50 Shades of Grey movie?

      Matt Bomer is definitely sexier, no one can argue this. I still think this guy is ugly as fuck and by the looks of it, I can tell that he says “I’m sexy and I know it”. Ewww!!! Fuck no!!!!

      @Dxley: You say that no one can argue that Matt Bomer is sexier….well then, I have to argue with you. Charlie has a ton of sex appeal and it a great actor. Bomer is nice looking but has zero sex appeal and is a mediocre actor, at best. The producers and director of Fifty Shades definitely did a great job on the casting, Charlie is by far the best choice they could have made. Keep your bitterness to yourself. Didn’t your mama teach you that if you don’t have something good to say to keep your mouth shut?

      @Dxley: LOL Sexiness is completely subjective so everyone can argue it. For me, once he loses the “sons of anarchy” scruff he will clean up real nice. super sexy (more than Matt Bomer, even with those baby blue eyes).

      I have not read “50 shades of Grey” so I’m not familiar with the part , Charlie Hunnam will play. But I guess the character has a lot of sex appeal from what some of the posters are writing. If that is the case, then I agree with Matt Boomer not being sexy enough. Matt is a beautiful man. Just stunning.. However, he does lack on screen sex appeal.

      If people really wanted someone else to play the lead role, then they should become rich enough to fund the movie themselves… until that happens, people should shut the heck up and be grateful that the movie is being made at all. Personally, I never was interested in the books and I was even less interested in seeing this movie – but I might check it out now that Charlie is in it. Always loved him as Nathan. :)

      @Cam: I agree, I was telling a friend that a few days ago, Matthew Bomer is stunning to look at, but despite that, he’s not actually someone I can fantasize too, weirdly. He’s just handsome, totally lacking any sex appeal, which is unfortunate.

      Anyways, never found Charlie Hunman attractive, never will. If there’s enough nudity on this, especially from behind, I *might* be persuaded to see it, definitely not in theatres though, a free download somewhere should do.

      @Cam: “That said….who really gives a shit about a 50 Shades of Grey movie?”

      lol – exactly what I’ve been thinking since I first heard about it! Charlie Hunnam was brilliant in the original UK “Queer as Folk” – a shorter but much better series than the US remake, IMO. I’d rather see a follow-up of that than ’50 Shades of Blah’. Unfortunately, Charlie no longer accepts my advice on his career direction. Stupid restraining order. :p

      @Dxley: Please tell us how you think he’s ugly one more time. I think if you write it at least 6 times, Queerty will send your petition to the producers of the movie.

      Yawn. Big deal. 50 Shades is an awful book. The movie will be a train wreck.

      Not really into blond guys, but Charlie would definitely be the exception.

      he is like a 20 on a scale of 1 to 10. all the looks of brad pitt in spades [without any of the retard] plus all the brain of a james franco plus all the athleticism of david beckham plus the plain sweetness of jamie bell. if only he were gay. he’s everything brad pitt might have been if he weren’t as dumb as a potato. he reminds me of rapper mark wahlberg. but he has te sweetest smile of all of them.
