Everything You Need To Know About The '50 Shades Of Grey' Stars
After months of speculation, we finally announced the lead roles for the highly anticipated "50 Shades of Grey" movie will be none other than Dakota Johnson and Charlie Hunnam. But, who the eff are these C-list celebrities? How are we supposed to ponder how they'll look naked when we can't remember either of them starring in a film? Well, for starters, that's because Charlie Hunnam is currently on television...
Leave the investigatory work up to us. Here's everything you need to know about the celebrities of the upcoming "50 Shades of Grey" movie, set to be released in August 2014.
Dakota Johnson Isn't Just An Actress...She's (Surprise!) A Model, Too

Lucky Sperm Club: Famous parents are Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, granddaughter of "Hitchcock" star Tippi Hedren, and stepdaughter of Antonia Banderas.
Claim to Fame: Minor roles in "The Five Year Engagement" and "21 Jump Street," as well as a short-lived television series, "Ben and Kate."
Slept Her Way to the Top: In the Oscar-nominated Facebook movie, "The Social Network," Dakota has one scene as Justin Timberlake's one-night stand.
Model Behavior: In 2006, she signed with IMG models and in 2009, she modeled for MANGO brand's jean line. (At least she'll be pretty to look at nekked!).
Wild Child: Completed a 30 day rehab program at the Visions Teen Treatment Center in Malibu for drug and alcohol addiction in September 2007 (so maybe she's not as innocent as our heroine, Anastasia Steele).
Ability to Bring On the Sexuality: Dakota has had a long-term boyfriend and prefers lasting relationships (A.K.A. she has the moves to make a man stay).
Charlie Hunnam Has Been Around The Block...

Imported from: Newcastle, England (hmmm, we wonder if he'll be rocking a sexy British accent as Christian?).
Street Cred: He's got the acting chops as he stars in "Sons of Anarchy" and has landed big roles in "Pacific Rim," "Children of Men" and "Cold Mountain."
Another Pretty Face: Charlie modeled for Emporio Armani's 2005 ad campaign. (We have some steamy scenes to look forward to...hopefully a little full frontal for the ladies!)
Jumps the Gun: After meeting his ex-wife, Katharine Towne, at an audition for "Dawson's Creek," Charlie married her just four weeks later in Las Vegas. (We don't remember Christian being that hasty...)
International Man of Karate: Charlie told Men's Fitness that he plans to travel to China to study Kung Fu at the Shaolin Temple (but that vacay might have to be put on hold now).
A Poet Who Didn't Know It: Wrote the screenplay titled "Vlad," which is being produced by Brad Pitt's production company.
