The Last Person in the World to Read 50 Shades of Grey

Actor Charlie Hunman was slated to play the lead role of BDSM aficionado Christian Grey in the film adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey, a series that’s sold 70 million copies worldwide. Then he reportedly read the book and backed out. While it might be embarrassing and troubling for the filmmakers, Hunman may have unwittingly revealed himself to be the last person on the planet to have read the book.

But now Humnan is one of us… One of us… One of us…
