Charlie Hunnam has an extensive film experience when it comes to anything sexual so portraying Christian Grey in "Fifty Shades of Grey" won't be a problem. However, Charlie's co-star, Olivia Wilde in the 2012 crime drama "Deadfall" claims she had a hand at prepping "The Sons of Anarchy" star for the part. What exactly did Wilde have to do?

Author E.L. James certainly picked the perfect actor for the part of Christian Grey. Aside from being gifted with the looks and the incredibly toned body, Charlie Hunnam already has the experience when it comes to filming raunchy scenes. This would only mean all the sexual parts in the Red Room of Pain won't be a bother for the actor.
"You know what, I had such a baptism of fire with regards to sexuality on camera at the beginning of my career. I starred in the British Channel 4 miniseries Queer as Folk, where I played a young, gay character, and there were some incredible, explicit sex scenes on that show...Now I am 16 years older and more mature so I don't anticipate them being too much of a problem. It's like anything else, just an exciting challenge," stated Hunnam in an interview with the Associated Press.
As for his co-star, Dakota Johnson, there won't be any awkwardness there, given during their screen test, the chemistry between them was already tangible.
"As soon as we got in the room and started reading with Dakota, I knew that I definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us. If felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it," explained Charlie.
Yet, even with the experience Charlie Hunnam is armed with, his co-star in "Deadfall" begs to differ. According to Olivia Wilde, she had played a part in preparing Charlie for the role of Christian Grey.
"I'd like to think that our love scenes sort of prepared him for this experience," said Wilde in an interview with E! News while at the Toronto Film Festival.
Wilde also jumped to defence against Hunnam's haters of him having been cast as Christian Grey.
"Audiences should just shut up and wait to be surprised, wait to be delighted," stated Wilde.
