I don’t necessarily think someone expressing their opinion about having Jamie replaced makes them immature. Maybe it’s just the final straw for them, you know what I mean? Jamie has always remained reserved and less outspoken about Fifty Shades, unlike Dakota or a few of the other cast mates. It’s like there’s a sense of trepidation from him. In turn it just comes off looking like he’s ashamed of the film. Which really baffles me, because I think it’s a beautiful, complex story.
I, however, don’t think Jamie should be replaced. He and Dakota are why I enjoyed the movie so much. He nailed the part of Christian, and played him beautifully. Not to mention if Jamie had never accepted this role, we wouldn’t have Damie and all their loveliness.
I’m gonna go ahead and cut Jamie some slack when comes to Fifty Shades, and press and promoting. I think because there’s so much that went on in the first film, and so much that developed between he and Dakota, I think this is the real reason he’s not out there being openly proud of the film. It’s like he may connect the two, Dakota and the movie, and it gives him some mixed emotions.
Hopefully he changes his tune when it’s time to go public with Darker. And I truly believe absence makes the heart grow fonder, so I feel that reunion will definitely be filled with sparks.
