For most of the week, CB, Bedhead and I have had an email chain about Charlie Hunnam’s butt. Apparently, on this week’s Sons of Anarchy, there was a graphic moment of Charlie’s character going… um, you know, TO TOWN on a lady. The photo of Charlie’s butt was everywhere because some prissy parents’ group got mad about sexuality on TV. Nevermind that the show is rated “Mature” and that there’s a crazy amount of violence on the show (and on so many cable shows). No, the prissy busybodies complained about Charlie’s glorious butt, which… if you’ve seen it, is like staring into the face of God. You can see the NSFW photo here and Michael K has got it GIF’d here (VERY NSFW).
So, basically, I’ve been thinking about Charlie and his butt all week. And I was disappointed that Charlie didn’t even seem to make it onto People Magazine’s “Sexiest” slideshow. I mean, they included Bradley Cooper and Tim Tebow, for goodness sake. Surely they could have included something about Hunnam and his Butt of Righteousness? Well, as it turns out, People did include him… somewhere.
Charlie Hunnam may be the hottest guy ever to straddle a Harley-Davidson on TV, but the Sons of Anarchy actor admits that he didn’t always look like a biker babe’s fantasy. The U.K. native, who was selected by PEOPLE as one of 2014′s Sexiest Men Alive, says life as young bloke was much less different than what he experienced over the past six years as the star of FX’s addictive motorcycle drama.
“I find the awkward phases in life are cyclical more than something you grow out of,” Hunnam, 34, told PEOPLE. “My life has been a long succession of awkward phases punctuated by brief moments where I feel smoother than Dr. Slinky McDoogle, inventor of the word mellifluous.”
Asked to describe how he looked in high school, the 6-foot-1-inch actor admitted, “Like Kurt Cobain, but way less cool. And wearing a school uniform.”
During his run on SOA, Hunnam’s uniform was a leather vest, a pair of baggy jeans and a crisp, white T-shirt. Lucky for female fans, there were a few occasions when Hunnam, as SAMCRO president Jax Teller, was asked to strip down for a sexy scene. To prepare for those revealing moments, Hunnam said he liked to mix it up in the gym off-camera.
“It stops me getting bored and it ensures that the whole body gets worked,” said Hunnam, who has a steady girlfriend. “I hike, swim, I love the Stairmaster. I lift heavy some days but I usually do calisthenics when I’m in the gym. I also box and do yoga. Variety is the key.”
Remarkably, Hunnam’s chiseled looks have kept a lot of female fans at bay. When asked if he’s intercepted any marriage proposals over the years from ardent biker babes, Hunnam replied, “None so far.”
“…Brief moments where I feel smoother than Dr. Slinky McDoogle, inventor of the word mellifluous….” Oh. I didn’t realize he was a dork too. That’s sort of charming, to realize that in addition to having a crazy body, an amazing butt and a fleshbeard, he also has a dash of Tom Hiddleston-like dorkness too. That’s an interesting combination. I will get back to you after I stare at the butt GIF for another ten minutes.
