7 Things You Should Know About Charlie Hunnam (in GIFs)

After seriously months and months of speculation, Fifty Shades of Grey fans finally have their Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. As we reported yesterday, they’ll be played by Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and star of the short-lived FX sitcom “Ben & Kate,” and Charlie Hunnam, the hot dude who played Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller on “Sons of Anarchy” and Raleigh Becket in the recent robots vs. monsters movie “Pacific Rim.” The British actor, 33, is poised to (maybe) become the next Brad Pitt.

But who is Charlie Hunnam, anyway? Considering we’re about to spend a whole lot of time watching him whip Anastasia Steele into submission, we should know these things, right?

Dakota Johnson & Charlie Hunnam Cast In “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Movie

Dakota Johnson, bend over, because you’ve been naughty. According to Deadline, Johnson – daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, and step-daughter of Antonio Banderas — has been officially cast as Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey. She’ll be joined by the panty-dropping “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey. I never personally considered Johnson for the role — not that my opinion matters in the slightest — but I’m enthused by it! Johnson was really quite good in the short-lived TV show “Ben & Kate.” Plus, the film is being directed by Sam Taylor-Wood, known for her art work and indie pedigree, so maybe the movie will end up being better than the writing it’s based on. As for Hunnam? Ughgfhwdgfhwgfh, take me to your Red Room of Pain, master! [Deadline, Deadline (2)]

We Can Blame Fifty Shades Of Grey For The Rise In Handcuff-Related Injuries

Further fodder for my irrational dislike of Fifty Shades of Grey: since its release, London firefighters suspect the erotic series is to blame for the increase in handcuff-related emergencies. Since 2010, the London Fire Brigade have come to the aid of 79 people trapped in handcuffs and one man with his penis stuck in the toaster (not related to Fifty Shades of Grey, but I thought you’d find it interesting nonetheless).

“I don’t know whether it’s the Fifty Shades effect, but the number of incidents involving items like handcuffs seems to have gone up,” said one of the officers.

The brigade is hoping that these stats will encourage people to exercise caution and use more common sense when playing with handcuffs (or toasting their penises). Maybe the Fifty Shades trilogy needs a disclaimer: Don’t try S&M at home unless you possess common sense. [AP[Photo from Shutterstock]

“50 Shades Of Grey” Frontrunner Breaks Her Silence On Starring As Anastasia

Ever since the “Fifty Shades of Grey” fan trailer frenzy first broke out, the actress formerly and best known as Rory Gilmore, Alexis Bledel, has been “cast” as Anastasia Steele. Again and again, she’s showed up on YouTube “opposite” the likes of Matt Bomerand Henry Cavill as Christian Grey! it’s clear she’s quickly become a fan favorite for the role, but she herself has kept mum on the subject of going up for the super-steamy, extremely coveted part. Until now, that is!

At the premiere of her new Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, “Remember Sunday,” Alexis actually addressed the potential for her involvement in the flick. Read more on The Stir…

We just couldn’t leave all you guys without some Fifty Shades juicy deets for the weekend. The Internet has been abuzz with rumors of who is playing who in the film adaption for like…ever it seems, and guys, we just got a pretty good indication of at least one of the stars of the movie, and this time it seems legit.

A group of hackers that call themselves Anonymous have broken into the files of the German movie studio Constantin; they stole a large amount of information, one tidbit being a document that pretty much spelled out Emma Watson as taking the role of Ana. Read more…

"There's a reason I don't talk."

Man, England gets all the best stuff! (Not really? Fine.) As part of a fundraiser for the charity Comic Relief, BBC Radio 1 promised listeners that they would have the notoriously tight-lipped Kate Moss in to read an excerpt from Fifty Shades of Grey, on the premise that they would be able to collect £200,000. And, duh, they did it, because there’s no better incentive for raising money than anything involving Kate Moss. So, want to hear Katers open “that mouth of hers” (says host Nick Grimshaw) to read a page out of the beloved literary masterpiece using her exceptionally sexy voice? Of course you do! She almost — almost — pulls it off without laughing, and then finally collapses into a heap of giggles. Isn’t she the cutest? [Fashionista]

  • Well, this is troubling: after Oscar de la Renta charitably allowed disgraced Dior designer John Galliano (who played a fun game of anti-Semitic dress-up just days ago) to have a hand in designing his Autumn/Winter 2013 collection, rumors abound that this could be part of the process of priming Galliano to take over for de la Renta, 80, when he retires. Ouch. [Refinery29]
  • As far as celebrities-turned-designers go, Matthew McConaughey was one of the very last guys we’d ever expect to start a menswear line… and yet JKL, inspired by his Just Keep Livin Foundation, is about to be a thing. Bizarrely, the collection will include shirts. [Huffington Post]
  • Add lingerie sales to the growing list of things that the immense, unprecedented popularity of “Fifty Shades of Grey” has helped to proliferate. Riiiiiight next to whips, chains, and Ben Wa balls. [New York Times]

“Fifty Shades Of Grey” Film Won’t Lack Raunchy Sex — Will Receive NC-17 Rating!

It looks like the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey may not be for everybody, quite literally. Kelly Marcel has taken on the task of penning the screenplay for the first film of the series and according to her, it is going to have to have an NC-17 rating. She says they are absolutely going to push all of the limits and go as far as possible to truly bring the mega popular book to life.

That seems to me like the only way that a book based on the BDSM lifestyle can ever make it to the big screen. Let’s face it, Fifty Shades is all about the raunchy sex and if the powers-that-be choose to water it down it’s going to be an absolute box office flop. They have to make it rival the books in terms of the really edgy sex play. Read more…

All The “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Rip-Offs Together On One, Sad Bookshelf

I’m going to talk about my trip again. Hate me yet? Anyhow, I had a four hour layover at the Dublin airport on my way home from Paris. I was tired and bored, so I spent all my time shopping in their mall. They have a mall! In the middle of the airport! There was a Jo Malone store there.

I’ve talked before about the many ways Fifty Shades of Grey is ruining in the world. In a bookstore, at the Dublin airport mall, I discovered yet another: publishers are falling all over themselves to release as many Fifty Shades rip-offs as possible before no one cares anymore.

The formula for these books were the same for the most part; either a similar title (one involving a number and a color), and/or a cover art in the style of Fifty Shades. The bookstore had the good/bad sense to put them all together on one bookshelf, next to the real Fifty Shades and sell them for a deep discount. Really? As a book lover, I cringed. Can’t we let Fifty Shades die and move onto something else in the world of erotica? Owl fetish, anyone? But as I mentioned, I had four hours to kill, so I flipped through them all. Oh, the horror.

10 Ways “Fifty Shades Of Grey” Is Ruining The World

No, I have not read the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and I don’t plan to. Maybe I’ll read it like 50 years from now when I’m nursing-home bound and desperate for some entertainment. But right now, the universe is so saturated with everything Fifty Shades that I refuse. What can I say, I tend to rebel against trends. I’ve been that way since pre-school when all the girls said their favorite color was pink, so, I said mine was purple because I was annoyed by the conformity. But this is not about me. This is about Fifty Shades of Grey and how I suspect it’s ruining the world.

This week, my worst fears were confirmed when a British couple cited “unreasonable differences” over Fifty Shades of Grey as a cause for their divorce. Stated simply: they are divorcing because of a poorly-penned book. I rest my case.

But if you need more evidence, please click through and see how E.L. James’ “Twilight” fan-fiction- turned-BDSM-erotica-novel is destroying lives.
