Her leading man made a quick exit. Dakota Johnson admits EJ James was pretty upset when Charlie Hunnan decided he didn’t want to be Christian Gray anymore for her Fifty Shades franchise. Johnson said James was so angry about Hunnam’s departure that she scrapped the script. Here’s what you need to know.
“It just became something crazy,” Johnson said in a new interview with Vanity Fair. “There were many different disagreements. I’ve never been able to be honest about it because you really want to promote a film and I’m proud of what we ended up doing and everything is going the way it’s supposed to, but it’s been difficult.”

Johnson continued, “We shot the film where Erika [James] wanted to make, and then we shot the film that we wanted to make. The night before I rewrote scenes with the old dialogue so I could add a line here and there. It was like chaos the whole time.”
When asked if she had any regrets about doing the films, Johnson replied, “No. I don’t think it’s a question of regret. If I had known… If I had known then that it would be like this, I don’t think anyone would have. It would have been like, “Oh, that’s psychotic.” But no, I don’t regret it.”
In an interview with Britain’s GQ, Dornan said he was initially relieved when actor Charlie Hunnam was chosen to play the role of Christian Grey, only to later drop out. And that’s because Dornan was initially reluctant to get on the show. “I was very reticent,” said the Irish actor. “I’m still reticent. I didn’t say no. I auditioned for it and then went that route and then someone else got it.
Unfortunately for Dornan, he also knows he’ll always be known as that Fifty Shades guy, for better or for worse.
The press always says, ‘That’s the best thing he’s done since Fifty Shades.’ ‘ Like I have yet to prove myself; I’m still paying penance for that decision to bring me back to where I was before. Look, I get it, and to be honest, it spurs me on. It kindles a fire in me. If that means people are like, ‘Oh, actually, he’s not that bad,’ then so be it.”
