Charlie Hunnam on the Set of Sons of Anarchy

Posted on September 12, 2013

We’re not even going to pretend this is anything but a naked ploy to buy us time while we dash off to Fashion Week shows and try to put together more posts. Besides, we just know you all still have opinions on that whole Christian Grey thing.


Charlie Hunnam on the set of “Sons Of Anarchy” filming in Los Angeles.

So while he gets to walk around in what look to be some very comfortable shoes, we have to strap on our very uncomfortable ones and hobble on over to Lincoln Center for one last day of painful, bleary-eyed fabulosity. Just one of the many small differences between our lives and Charlie Hunnam’s.

      I will wait patiently while you go find the fabulous out there, Gents. And I feel for you about uncomfortable shoes. Really I do.

      • LaVonne Ellis

        Wait–men’s shoes are uncomfortable too? Did not know this.

        • formerlyAnon

          I think the difference is that with with very little luck, men’s shoes don’t *have to be* uncomfortable to be stylish. The odds run the other way with stylish women’s shoes.

          • demidaemon

            It’s true, but most nice shoes aren’t meant to be worn for the periods of time one would spend wearing them at a fashion show, nor are they made for running to and fro at high speeds to make the next appointment on time.

          • Jacob Bowen

            Standing for a 2 hour concert on risers in men’s dress shoes is so bad that I almost consider wearing women’s flats and seeing if my conductor would notice.

            • formerlyAnon

              Am I right in assuming that as with women’s shoes, men’s dress shoes get more comfortable as the price goes up and/or as the shoe gets uglier?

              Would your conductor notice a nice dressy boot? I’ve walked miles in a good flat boot – and not a cowboy boot either.

            • Jacob Bowen

              He would probably murder me if I wore anything other than a traditional dress shoe. He has a cow when women even wear a platform black shoe instead of a small heel or flat. He is INCREDIBLY picky.

    • CatherineRhodes

      Bless you. I always love to start my day with Jax Teller.

    • sugarkane105

      I, for one, am excited he is Christian Grey. I previously had no interest in that book/movie, but now? I’ll go see it. Anyone who doubts his hotness should see Pacific Rim.

      • Leah Elzinga

        I have NO interest in the movie, but anyone that’s ever watched that dude (because, really, has any guy embodied the word more?) pin a girl to a wall knows he’s got the chemistry part DOWN. *fans self

        • mshesterp

          I have an interest in the movie (and I hated 2 of the 3 books I read) but I now HAVE an interest because of Charlie Hunnam. I think he’ll be unexpectedly good (and I like Dakota Johnson as well from Ben and Kate.)

          • LaVonne Ellis

            Yes, Dakota Johnson is a star in the making.

          • martha

            Did they cancel that? It was pretty funny so of course they did.

            • mshesterp

              Sadly, yes. You know if it’s not Real Housewives or Honey Boo Boo its hard to keep scripted comedies on the air!

        • Lucía Gavello

          Or pin a boy to a wall, If you’ve been following his career since Queer as Folk.

          • The Gifted Collector

            Is that the English version? I don’t remember him in the American/Canadian production.

            • demidaemon

              Yep, it was the UK version,as I believe that is where he originally hails from.

            • Lucía Gavello

              Indeed, he was on the original version, he looked quite different though.

      • LaVonne Ellis

        And whatever you do, DON’T see Nicholas Nickleby, which I did last night. He’s terrible in it.

    • Emily Smith

      I haven’t read the fifty shades books, I hear they’re very poorly written from friends who have but I know some people who enjoyed them anyway. But there sure is a whole bunch of fuss over the movies.

      • Deb Oswald

        THEY ARE POORLY WRITTEN!!! I have so little time to read, I read about 1/3 of the first one and deemed it unworthy of my time.

        • giddypony

          Gilbert Gottfried’s reading of them is sublime.

          • Aurumgirl

            Yup. His are the definitive readings. Charlie has a hell of a job to do to live up to them.

      • marlie

        Check out the Charlie Humman post from last week for a complete list of reviews of the books, and explanations of why they’re poorly written.

      • H2olovngrl

        I tried, really I did. About a third of the way through the first book, I gave up. I couldn’t stop snickering. It wasn’t about the sex,not really. I love a good steamy sex scene as much as the next person. It was that it was impossible for me to suspend belief. THAT is how bad it is.

        • Emily Smith

          Oh dear. That’s not good.

    • kingderella

      oh yum… should i be watching this?

      • Daralene Irwin

        Sons of Anarchy is an AMAZING show.

      • annabelle archer

        You should. But you should start from the first season if at all possible. Season 6 just started, but from the onset it has been said it is a seven season story arc. It’s the beginning of the end for these anti-heroes.

        • ShaoLinKitten

          I was SO ANGRY at Jax after the season premiere, though. Really? He has to jump onto the first woman who waves her panties at him while Tara rots in prison on SAMCRO’s behalf? He really is a pathetic child. I’m kinda rooting for Tara to turn him over to the DA and escape Charming. I know that won’t happen because everyone knows that Ophelia drowns, but still, I dream.

          • annabelle archer

            Where you been hiding today Kitten? It’ SoA Tuesday, hope you’re doing well.

            • ShaoLinKitten

              Doing fine. Just got home! That gives me an hour of peace before the insanity of SoA. Gotta poke around TLo and see what’s up. Hope your Tuesday has also been fun. Ready to watch someone get drowned in a bathtub of piss?

      • H2olovngrl

        It’s on Netflix

    • annabelle archer

      Is it my birthday? What day is this? Where am I?
      Charlie Hunnam as Jax Teller, truly is my favorite thing happening on TV right now. He is swagger.

      May your day be filled with fabulousness, TLo. Thank you helping mine to be.

    • Jacquelyn

      I guess he is just not my type at all. And while I had zero interest in the Fifty Shades fanfiction/movie, I have even less now.

      • random_poster

        Same here.

        • demidaemon

          Ditto. Although I don’t know what is less than zero interest, but I have that.

    • Poeta Paz

      I think the problem is that Christian Grey is supposed to have brown hair with beautiful blue eyes. He’s a young, rich, business man that wears suits most days. That’s why Matt Bomer seems a better fit for the role. I wonder if they are going to change his hair color. Definitely, the facial hair has to go.

      • Nicole C

        I haven’t read the books, but he was on one of Judd Apatow’s tv shows – Undeclared – as the generic good looking party dude. I was really surprised when I IMDB’d him after watching Sons of Anarchy because I never would have recognized him. I barely believed IMDB I’m curious to see his transformation for this movie.

      • MilaXX

        I have no interest in this movie, but they probably will dye his hair and contacts are always an option.

      • Emily

        I’m pretty sure he is supposed to have “copper” hair. And by pretty sure I’m positive (unashamedly). A good colourist will be able to remedy his gorgeous blond hair.

        • DTLAFamilies

          He’s supposed to look exactly like Robert Pattinson.

          • Kate4queen


          • Emily

            Barf. I’ll take Charlie any day over that guy.

          • demidaemon

            Exactly. Which was the author’s dream actor for the role. How very original. *rolls eyes heavily*

            • Tina Power

              Because it was twilight fanfic that was repurposed.

    • Kate Andrews

      I might actually watch this movie. There is something about this guy.

    • Judy_S

      I am disturbed, not by Mr. Hunnam but by the idea that you guys are wearing uncomfortable shoes. That’s just wrong.

      • Kate Andrews

        Yeah! We don’t want you getting bunions!

    • Nonmercisansfacon

      Mmmh Jax Teller. Probably my favorite TV morally problematic but sexy asshole after Walter White. Good way to start my morning!

    • shirab

      Getting a Brad Pitt 2.0 vibe.

    • Eclectic Mayhem

      The funny thing is, I know he is the wee blonde boy who was in (the original) Queer as Folk way back when and yet I just can’t SEE it! He grew up very nicely. Very nicely indeed.

      • Tamara Hogan

        I thought he was hotter THEN.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Yep, still not doing it for me. Although, he seems to be a gentleman signing autographs.

    • Monzerrat Ontiveros

      He’s already signing Fifty shades of grey! Hope it will be not like Lindsay and lovelace!

    • Jaeda Laurez

      Minus the SAMCRO vest, that’s pretty much everything I appreciate in a regular dude on an average day. Perfectly baggy jeans, a fresh pair of kicks, and a hoodie. On the right man, it’s the sexiest thing ever.

    • imspinningaround

      I always preferred Opie to Jax.

      • annabelle archer

        If you throw a sock cap on my husband, he looks just like Opie. I get the best of both of both fantasy and real world roughnecks.

        • imspinningaround

          You live a charmed life.

    • RebeccaKW

      He really does nothing for me. Of course, his body is rockin’ and I enjoy looking at it, but here, that body is all covered up. There is nothing to interest me here. I’m sure he’s devastated by my lack of desire.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      He seems like a nice boy, but I always mix him up with Garrett Hedlund. I don’t care for either of them as actors, and I don’t care about 50 Shades of Gray at all, so this was a rather pointless post, wasn’t it?

    • MinAgain

      Not even Matt Bomer could make me go to this movie, and I suffered through Magic Mike just for him.

    • Darva Sutra

      Actually, I don’t have any opinions on the Christian Grey/50 shades thing. I have high erotica standards and taste; mommy porn fanfic derived from yet another terrible (Christian vampires?) series is far beneath my notice.

      However, I appreciate Charlie purely on his own aesthetic merits. Delicious.

    • julnyes

      I’ve liked him since the original Queer as Folk, but even his appeal isn’t enough to get me to see / read anything relating to 50 Shades of Grey.

    • lobsterlen

      Well I believe we bitter kittens have beaten the Charlie as Christian Grey/50 shades thing to death with a cat of nine tails in the last post.

      Have fun! In addition to Grumpy cat has Colonel Meow shown up at fashion week too? I noticed through facebook the Colonel was in NYC. Bitter Kittens probably love famous internet cat celebrities more than human celebrities.

    • Slanted & Enchanted

      Man, those are distractingly ugly pants.

    • Mrs. Julien

      That is a very comfortable looking costume. Lucky him.

    • frannyprof

      Something tells me he’s already kinda regretting taking on the 50 Shades role…

    • Danielle

      Hated the books, so I don’t have an opinion on casting. As long as he doesn’t say “laters, baby” on the regular. The grammar Nazi in me shudders.

    • H2olovngrl

      You mean you don’t attach your wallet to your jeans with a chain?

    • H2olovngrl

      Wait…Opie DIES???

      just kidding.

    • Gaby

      Sorry, while all the 50 Shades fans are doing their thing, now I want to rewatch Secretary.

      • H2olovngrl

        That is one cheeky movie.


      He’s pretty hot.

      • Lucas

        I agree, and I think he could be the perfect Christian Grey. On a side note, I just started watching Sons of Anarchy after all the recent buzz, and after ignoring all the past recommendations I’ve been given to watch it… and I’m 4 or 5 episodes into season 1, and I’m not digging it. I mean, it’s okay, but there’s something…corny…about it. Maybe I’ve just never taken leather biker gangs seriously enough, IDK. But I feel like, Tony Soprano would mop the floor with these guys.


          I Agree. The show is a bit lame. I havent seen him before, but the more I do I think he could be good for Grey. But, there has to be lots of chemistry with A.

        • Tina Power

          Latter half of season 1 and season 2 are really good. 3 is alright. 4 you can kind of feel it coming off the rails. I haven’t seen 5 yet.

    • oohsparkley!

      I can hardly believe those that don’t find him SEXY. But to each his own. I think he’ll clean up nicely.

    • shanna bowie

      Aww, the in memory of Opie patch. I’m tearing up.

    • Fred Vaughn

      Pictures, or I can NEVER feel you guys’ pain.

    • kathrineb

      I think he is CRAZY good looking. And I enjoy SOA. Not a fan of the hair but perhaps that’s how you have to wear it in a biker gang. Much sexier with other hair
