The pressure is on now that Charlie Hunnam has dropped out of the film adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Dakota Johnson, cast as the part of Anastasia Steele, is struggling with the spotlight because of her part in the project. Will she crack under the pressure and leave the project like her former co-star?
We sure hope not!
“Dakota is having a very hard time dealing with all the press,” a source told E! News. “When she first got the role, it was way too much for her.”
“It’s been tough,” the source added.
Hunnam, the 33-year-old hunk slated to play Christian Grey, dropped out of the project this weekend, saying he was far too busy with other commitments. Sources say the star’s actual reason for departing from the project was fear he would be type-cast.
“The filmmakers of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ and Charlie Hunnam have agreed to find another male lead given Hunnam’s immersive TV schedule which is not allowing him time to adequately prepare for the role of Christian Grey,” Universal Pictures said in a statement.
Stay strong, Dakota! We have some ideas for your leading man’s replacement…
