Women Are Convinced This Seattle Man Is The Real Christian Grey
Seattle playboy Brayden Olson, 27, would like you to know he's a real-life Christian Grey.
In a series of media appearances that arrived just after the “Fifty Shades of Grey” film's release, Olson openly shared his similarities to the series' dominant young antihero.
Although he doesn't own a helicopter quite yet, Olson did receive a "best man" award for his contributions to the Seattle community.
While he's not open to discussing what goes on in his bedroom, Olson said an ex-girlfriend compared him to Grey.
And for what it's worth, Olson's using his newfound media attention to promote #VOWtoEndit, Miss America Kira Kazantsev's effort to end domestic violence.
Although author E.L. James has denied claims that Grey's relationship with Anastasia Steele is abusive, the new movie makes the debate a hot topic once again.
Olson told Seattle Refined,
There can be some non-traditional ways for people to show their affection, but a real man would never hurt a woman. Domestic violence is a real problem that goes on in every community. So, I hope anyone who uses #RealChristianGrey will also #VOWtoEndIt.
