Ever since the FX drama “Sons of Anarchy” ended last December, it’s star, Charlie Hunnam, who portrayed Jax Teller, has gone on to become one of the most sought after actors in entertainment today. As of today, the actor has gone on to work on various projects and films, while collaborating with respected figures in the industry, such as directors Guillermo del Toro and Guy Ritchie, and actors such as Tom Hiddleston. However, aside from all of this, earlier this year, he was able to have an opportunity to become a model, for a fragrance created by Calvin Klein. Read on to learn more about Hunnam’s thoughts about modeling, “Sons of Anarchy,” “Crimson Peak” and more.
Thanks to Kurt Sutter’s FX drama, “Sons of Anarchy” and his involvement in Del Toro’s epic movie “Pacific Rim”, Charlie Hunnam, who is now a household name internationally, has begun his rise into stardom. It was especially as he is currently involved with several projects with the likes of del Toro, Guy Ritchie, Jessica Chastain and Tom Hiddleston.
Aside from this, the star, earlier this year, showed a different side to himself. Previously, he modeled, alongside supermodel Doutzen Kroes, in Calvin Klein’s campaign for one of their newest fragrances, Reveal.
During an interview with Details, Hunnam revealed that the Calvin Klein campaign wasn’t the first time that he had ever modeled. His past modeling gig for Emporio Armani happened when he was around sixteen years old and had been in Milan for a fashion show that he did for them.
He then told Details that he had gotten spotted by a modeling scout. However, he was in film school at that time and was more interested in that particular modeling agency’s acting division. However, as he had pestered them too much, he ended up just getting just one modeling job from them.
He also mentioned that being a model for a shoot was very different compared to what he was used to doing as an actor. It was especially as a shoot for a commercial doesn’t take as long compared to when one is shooting for a movie or a television show. He also mentioned that he had a hard time in the still shots of the campaign.
He was also asked about his own fashion sense and revealed that portraying Jax Teller did influence him. After “Sons of Anarchy” ended, he had to get rid of all the plaid shirts he had in order to move on from the character.
He also talked about “Crimson Peak,” which also stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, and Tom Hiddleston. He mentioned that he had decided to join the cast of the film because of its director, whom he is fond of working with. It was especially after working with him in the epic monster film “Pacific Rim”, whose sequel is slated for release in 2017, and which will start filming later this year.
However, the “Pacific Rim” star, recently shared on Entertainment Weekly, that he hoped that the sequel will allow the actors in the film, such as himself, to be able to showcase their acting abilities, which goes to show that Hunnam is out there to prove himself.
As of now, Hunnam is content with his rising career and isn’t bent on pleasing anybody as Hunnam told the magazine that he is doing what he himself wants to do, and will be happy doing.
