Charlie Hunnam stood up for a friend's wedding in Santa Barbara on Saturday, all smiles following the announcement that he dropped out of Fifty Shades of Grey. Suited up with his hair slicked back, he posed for pictures alongside the rest of the bridal party as his friend Ryan Conroy married celebrity publicist Jennifer Betts. During the wedding at Santa Barbara's Bacara Resort, Charlie gave a toast to the happy couple as the groom's best man.
That morning, it was reported that Charlie had stepped away from the role of Christian Grey in the buzzed-about Fifty Shades of Grey film adaptation, which was supposed to start filming in early November. Reactions to Charlie leaving have been mixed, but the controversy over the movie casting is nothing new — when Charlie was first announced as the male lead, some fans were disappointed and angry, and Charlie told Entertainment Weekly, "I'm probably not what everybody imagined."
