Hubby of Fifty Shades director reveals why he wasn’t cast in lead role

Aaron Taylor-Johnson could have been a front-runner to play Christian Grey in the movie we’re all dying to see – Fifty Shades of Grey.

After all, his wife Sam Taylor-Johnson is directing the movie-version of the steamiest book of the past few years.

So why didn’t he try out for the role?

“I think it would have been the wrong kind of hype to bring towards us,” the 23-year-old actor said.

“It would have been kind of funny that this character that all these women fancy — he’s one in a million — and my wife picks her husband to play the part?” he added.

“I would love to have done something together again, but it would not have been Fifty. We were both on the same page.”

Aaron, who has been married to Sam, 47, since June 2012, revealed that he hasn’t even read the books his wife’s movie is based on, but said he “will watch the movie, though!”

We don’t think there’s many complaints about who made the Christian Grey cut though!
