Charlie Hunnam just granted all of our wishes in his latest interview.
While speaking to Elle Canada, the Sons of Anarchy actor was asked about his history of and willingness to get naked for the camera. He said he is not bothered at all with the level of nudity he deals with now, which he said basically involves him taking off his shirt (and we don't mind it one single bit. In fact, we should go ahead and just have him never wear a shirt ever again. OK? Moving on.)
When asked if he would go full frontal, as he did when he was younger in a TV scene that never aired, he said, "I don't know. I'm sure I would. I have nothing to hide."
OK, some of you might say I am objectifying the hunky actor and would be outraged if I were a man talking about a woman. But I don't think it is a bad thing to admire someone's body when they work so hard for it and want people to know they work hard for it.
During the course of the interview, Hunnam said he works out to keep from going crazy. "When I'm between jobs, I need to work out a lot for my sanity. If I weren't an actor, I'd be the fittest motherf***er on the block."
The interview did have a much broader reach than just his amazingly good looks, proving Hunnam is more than just a pretty face (and body). Having officially cut his teeth and considered a star on the big and small screens, Hunnam broke down some of the mainline themes in his most famous role as Jax on Sons of Anarchy.
When asked what masculinity meant to him, he said, "In the modern context, it also means being in touch with your feminine side. Men have to be strong enough to not repress their emotions; real strength allows for vulnerability."
Very well put, although I would argue against the notion that "being in touch with your feminine side" means being more emotional, but I get what he is saying, and it is quite poignant and impressive for someone who portrayed a hardened bad boy to say it is OK for men to feel vulnerable.
Hunnam was the face of Calvin Klein's fall/winter 2015 collection, and we can't wait to see what his next roles will be. Check out the entire interview with Elle Canada.
