Daniel Radcliffe - Daniel Radcliffe: 'I Never Wanted 50 Shades Of Grey Role'

British actor Daniel Radcliffe has refuted rumours suggesting he missed out on the lead role in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, insisting he never wanted a part in the saucy film.

The Harry Potter star was said to have been keen to play Christian Grey in the big screen adaptation of E.L. James' best-selling erotic novel, but lost out on the job to fellow Brit Charlie Hunnam.

However, Radcliffe insists the story is not true.

In an interview MTV News at the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada, he says, "I literally had someone say to me for the first time today, 'The world's in uproar you're not playing Christian Grey.' And I'm like, 'If this is uproar, it's inaudible.' I think there was approximately no people wanting me to play Christian Grey, including myself.

"I have to say, no offence to anybody, I'm sure they're going to do a great job on the movie, but it's not something that I think would have been a good next step for me."
