Why David Gandy turned down the role of Christian Grey in "Fifty Shades of Grey"



  • “I was offered Fifty Shades of Grey, 300: Rise of an Empire, Hercules, which a lot of people probably would have taken as actors but I’m in the fortunate position where I like what I’m doing. I don’t feel the need to act.”

  • “It just didn’t feel right, in any way. And in my gut, it felt right to say no. I know if you’re in a successful film, your status changes overnight."

  • "Critics and literary experts aren’t fans of Fifty Shades of Grey but I respect it for what it is. But was it right for me? No.”
