Making fan fiction a reality…
Pirates of the Caribbean and Hunger Games star, Sam Claflin, has revealed in an interview with PrideSource that he’d happily do a Fifty Shades-style movie with the Hemsworth brothers.
Talking about the gay Hunger Games fan fiction that was written about himself along with Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson, he admitted that he didn’t realise that there was “an underworld with these kind of amazingly imaginative ideas.”
He added: “I love Liam as much as I love – in fact, I love Chris Hemsworth. I love the entire Hemsworth family.
“I say we get all of us involved and we do a Fifty Shades of Grey. We can make it reality.”
Don’t tease us like this, Sam.
What’s more, the 30-year-old actor also revealed he wants to play gay roles in future movies.
“I have auditioned for gay parts and not got them and desperately wanted them,” he revealed. “It’s nothing I’m shying away from. It’s something I fully embrace.”
In the same interview, Sam also expressed disappointment for the lack of acceptance of LGBT+ people.
“It does really upset me that people aren’t open-minded. People are still hung up on such a traditional old-world life, and people should be allowed to love who they want,” he said.
“I think it’s a shame that people are so narrow-minded that they believe their way is the only way. It’s sickening, in all honesty.”
Now all of this is on the table, directors, we’re waiting.
Meanwhile, Sam Claflin is currently starring in new movie My Cousin Rachel alongside Rachel Weisz.
