Charlie Hunnam has said he can't wait to see the finished version of Fifty Shades Of Grey, even though he had to quit his role in it.

Hunnam, who was cast as Christian Grey in the movie, but then had to pull out, with Jamie Dornan taking on the role, said he still believes in the film.

The 34-year-old Sons Of Anarchy star said he was excited to see it and also "really curious".

Hunnam quit the movie one month after it was announced he had landed the role of the billionaire Grey, a sexual "dominant" who falls for an innocent coed.

He said his schedule didn't give him time to do Sons Of Anarchy and Fifty Shades and recalled the departure as "pretty heartbreaking".

Fifty Shades is scheduled to open on Valentine's Day in 2015.
