Charlie Hunnam doesn’t want to marry his girlfriend Morgana but she’s ‘very eager’


Circa 2016-17 was when Charlie Hunnam killed a lot of crushes around here. That’s when he wouldn’t shut up about how funny and special he was for ghosting his long-term girlfriend for months because of his “Method acting.” He’s been with Morgana McNelis for more than a decade. They are not married, but she sticks by him – or takes him back – even when he goes incommunicado for months at a time while he’s filming a movie. He doesn’t even email her or anything. Then he spends months laughing about how funny it is to ghost Morgana and she still takes him back when he’s done with the movie. Charlie seems like a mess in relationships.

Anyway, Charlie is currently promoting The Gentlemen with Hugh Grant and Matthew McConaughey. The three men sat down for an interview with Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM show. Cohen asked Charlie about how he’ll turn 40 this year and what his feelings are about marriage:

“I’ve been with my girlfriend for 14 and a half years… I think?! 13 and a half years, maybe? Oh gosh,” Charlie said when asked about his relationship status. “What is your POV about marriage?” Andy asked. Charlie responded, “Umm, sort of indifferent. She does not feel the same. She is very eager to get married. I’ll do it because it’s important to her, but I don’t have any, sort of, great romantic feelings towards it.”

Hugh Grant chimes in with a joke about how Charlie should not propose to Morgana using those words. I mean…how f–king disrespectful. I would be incredibly mad if I was in a relationship for MORE THAN A DECADE with a guy and I wanted to marry him and he was out there, talking sh-t about how he doesn’t want marriage and how I’m “very eager.” The whole thing is gross.

    Wow what a d-bag

    • Chaine says:

      You took the words out of my mouth…

    • Des says:

      When Hugh freakin’ Grant is giving you tips on how to be more respectful in a relationship, it’s time to retrospect a little.

      Morgana, girl, you’re wayyy too beautiful for this shit.

      • Gina says:

        HAHAHA – I thought the same thing!

      • Marly says:

        Beautiful? Ha. She is plain and masculine, and she is insecure about being unable to find someone “better”, or she would have left years ago.

      • illandri says:

        Well.. some of us are certainly putting the “bitch” in Celebitchy today, aren’t we? (hint: it’s Marly)

      • tealily says:

        Lol I was going to say the same thing. Listen to a man who’s clearly learned his lesson, Charlie!

      • Jaded says:

        @Marly – what an utterly horrible thing to say. Way to support womankind by sh*tting all over her real beauty and calling her insecure because she doesn’t look like Angelina Jolie.

      • Marly says:

        I don’t support “womankind”, what a stupid thing to assume. She looks like Pete Burns and he’s revolting. They deserve each other.

      • paranormalgirl says:

        Wow… I mean… wow. I… actually have no words.

      • olive says:

        @Marly must be one of charlie’s super fans who spend their time on message boards slamming morgana and her family. look it up, these people are psycho.

    • StormsMama says:

      I’m glad you covered this
      When I watched this yesterday at Lainey
      I was repulsed by how quickly he threw her love and devotion and desire out to the public wolves and under the bus. Where is the protective and trusting bond if the first chance he gets he shouts to Andy Cohen that he couldn’t care less but SHE does. Ew ew ew. Awful person. She needs to leave him. It will never happen honey.

    • I think he is being completely honest as to who he is and what he wants and doesn’t want. Do I like him, NAh, but he isn’t hiding. I don’t understand the girlfriend staying. If she wants commitment and marriage, he couldn’t be more humiliatingly plainer to her that he doesn’t. Her love for him and her inability to value herself is hurting her way more than him. Even if he marries her, it won’t last, because as he just said he doesn’t want that commitment. I don’t think she’s a victim here, I think she’s a masochist. And — I speak from experience on this kind of relationship. My guy was also completely and publicly honest about our relationship’s future. It wasn’t until it was over that I realized how very little I valued myself and how self abusive I was to hang in there, no matter how much I loved him, it was never going to have the happily ever after I wanted. I should have known the end from the beginning.

    • Mgsota says:

      This guy that works with me was telling the very romantic story of how he decided to get married…he was hanging out with the little brothers of all his friends because his friends had married and started families…and he figured maybe he should too. I Couldn’t believe he was telling the story to a bunch of people over a work lunch. I felt so bad for his wife. I didn’t get married for love or any of those reasons, I got married because all my friends got married and I figured it was time to… Essentially the moral of his story

      • Doublesteff says:

        @MGSOTA: I married a guy that turned out to not be the person I thought he was in so many ways. When we were going through the process of yelling and screaming at each other during the ending of our time together (this was about 13 years ago now) I asked him ‘if I’m such an awful person, why did you ask me to marry you?’. His response ‘because it was the next step.’ It was a knife straight through my heart. I believe that statement from him finally helped me realize who he was but damn if that didn’t hurt like hell. Marriage is not something as casual as ‘just the next step’ or ‘we only did it cuz she wanted to’. These guys are dicks for doing things that way too.

      • Mgsota says:

        @doublesteff…man, I’m sorry to hear that. I honestly think that’s why a lot of marriages don’t work. I think there are a lot of men that aren’t the “marrying kind” but do it because they think they’re supposed to. Some women too.

  2. Carobell says:

    I feel bad for her. He’s indifferent to marrying her, how terrible that would be to hear after more than a decade. Maybe she really loves him, maybe it is sunk cost fallacy, maybe he should have something to talk about besides his relationship.

    • Swack says:

      In a way I feel bad for her yet in another way I don’t. She could/could have walked away at anytime and has chosen not too. What her reasons for staying are, I do not know but do know that marrying a man that doesn’t want marriage will not end up well.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      He will leave her in a few years time and within two years of bouncing on her will have a (much) younger wife and a baby, tale as old as time. I have seen this dynamic many times over the years and people always have to learn the hard way.

      • Carobell says:

        I agree with you 100% – they will break up and he knocks up and marries whoever his next girlfriend is.

      • Hikaru says:

        Yup. She needs to love herself and walk.

      • DragonWise says:

        Indeed. Dr. Phil is a sentient turd, but he’s right about teaching people how to treat you. Clearly, this level of callousness and disrespect is normal for her, and obviously he thinks he’s correct enough to brag on how jerky he’s being. He will absolutely toss her overboard for a younger woman and think he’s upgrading. Total jackass!

      • mtec says:

        Came here to say the same thing! He totally seems like the type of guy who will eff up a LTR like this and then marry and have a kid with a rebound within a year and a bit. He’s def an example of “waste her time [*insert year(s) here*]. Morgana RUN GIRL! find the kind of partner who WANTS to build the same type of life as you, not someone who feels like they HAVE to do it.

    • Erinn says:

      On the flip-side, if he HAS been upfront about being indifferent about marriage… is it fair that she isn’t respecting that? We’ve had article after article over the years on the site about how uninterested he is in big romantic stuff. He got married in Vegas at like 17, and the divorce process lasted longer than the marriage ever did. I can’t really blame him for not being into the whole wedding thing. He seems genuinely uninterested in that. But if he’s made that clear to her, and she’s pressing him to get married, that’s not a good move either.

      • Wow2 says:

        Agreed Erinn. It works both ways. I’m very upfront in relationships with what I want. The difference is, I dont stay if the other person insists on something I do not want. Especially with big things like this.

      • DS9 says:

        Regardless of their personal feelings and the fairness within their relationship, it’s more than fair to expect your long term boyfriend not to denigrate your wish to marry in your work pressers.

        It’s not the fact that he doesn’t want to marry I find bothersome. It’s the way he talks about it. If he’s that dismissive and scoffing in public imagine how he is in private.

        And if he doesn’t care for whatever pressure he feels to marry her, he’s free to break it off.

        But he won’t because he knows damned well he’ll have a hard time finding someone who puts up with this shit.

      • Haapa says:

        I am in this exact situation and we have been together for 14 years, but with one important difference! We are BOTH indifferent about marriage, so it works!

      • Erinn says:

        Don’t get me wrong- I think he’s a douchebag haha. Though, I do wonder if it’s more than indifference and actually something he really doesn’t want to do. If he’s dismissive about it in public, I can only imagine he’s likely dismissive of it at home.

        I just think that if marriage was TRULY that important to her, and was something that she could not live without… why stay? Like if the institution of marriage is something you absolutely want and something you take very seriously… I don’t see why you’d want to stay with someone who’s so uninterested, and who goes further than that by kind of just mocking it publicly. It’s been like 13 years at this point.

        Of course, neither of them seem to be doing each other any favors. If he’s anti marriage he could say “If it’s that important to you, you might want to seek it with someone equally as interested. But if me being in this for the long haul is enough of a commitment for you, I want to stay together”.

        Neither of them seem super bright no matter the scenario haha. I guess there’s also the possibility that he’s exaggerating her interest in it and it could be a bit of a joke between them. We really have no idea.

    • M says:

      I don’t hear that he’s not into her or the relationship in his comments at all. Just that marriage the institution doesn’t mean much to him. I know plenty of people, men and women, who are like that… they love their partner and their relationship and that’s what matters, the legal thing is beside the point. And I know plenty of couples who got married because one of them felt that way and the other one said “well, this is important to me” and so the other one said “if it’s important to you, then OK let’s do it.”

      It’s a million years away from saying “I’m not in this for the long haul,” it’s actually the opposite. It’s “I’m already in this for the long haul, so whether we formalize it or not is up to you.”

      • Steph says:

        Same. Dax Shepherd said the same think about why he married KB and people weren’t calling her a doormat or too “manly and plain” to leave him. He said he got married bc it meant something to her, but he didn’t have grand ideas of getting married.

      • Riley says:

        That’s the way I read it too. Not like he’s going anywhere but in and of itself, it’s not important to him. He said he would because it’s important to her. He did not have to say it in such a d-bag way though.

        I remember reading that he’s a total germaphobe and the love scenes in SOA were painful for him. He said he doesn’t like kissing anyone but his girlfriend. Even when he says somethig nice he still sounds like a douche, lol.

      • M says:

        Haha! Hopefully after a decade plus she’s used to just rolling her eyes and saying “sweetie, you still sound awful in interviews.”

      • M says:

        @ Steph yeah, crazy to me that anyone would immediately assume it’s something wrong with her (like looks? wtf, she looks super pretty but even if she wasn’t, geez). In general when someone’s relationship seems kind of offbeat I assume it’s because it’s a strong one between two people who get each other’s idiosyncrasies.

    • Kosmos says:

      We don’t REALLY know what their inner relationship is like, do we? We shouldn’t comment on how she is not pretty enough–is that even kind to other women? Are looks everything and the person is nothing? Looks are only skin deep–people have complex relationships and share things together we can never know the depth of. Let’s not make everything so superficial, and I hope we can be kind to other women even if we don’t consider them perfectly gorgeous looking.

  3. SM says:

    How she didn’t pack her bags and pull her middle finger on him yet is a mystery to me. He is a real douch.

    • Nanainwonderland says:

      Yes, Morgana should dump him his sorry a@@.. I don’t have a problem with him not wanting to get married, but why do I feel he wants to constantly wound her up with these statement?

    • Marly says:

      Because she looks like a man and knows she’ll never land another celebrity type as rich/popular/good looking/ whatever as this guy.
      Insecure women everywhere can’t even leave broke loser douchebag nobodies, you think this woman is going to dump her Famous Actor Boyfriend? Please.

      • LuvSpaghetti says:


        Gurllll you sound hateful AF. Tone it down. There’s no need to keep posting comments saying she “looks like a man.” Did she run over your puppy or something? Sheesh 0_o

      • tcbc says:

        You’re a terrible person.

      • Des says:

        you know he’s never hooking up with you, right? doesn’t matter how hard you defend him online, he doesn’t know and he doesn’t care.

      • Jaded says:

        Marly get off it. Whatever turned you into such a hateful person must be something really serious. Get some help.

      • Anna says:

        Don’t feed the troll (aka Marly)

      • joanne says:

        Marly, what is your problem? You don’t have to like her but why be so nasty? What pleasure do you get by being such a horrible person?

      • Rashida says:


        girl don’t hurt yourself w/that transparent load of jealousy you’re walking around w/ – even if he wasn’t with her or breakups w/her someday or not, he certainly not gonna hookup w/you. You’re not even trying to conceal your resentment/envy either. Maybe out of the comments & into therapy…

  4. Mia4s says:

    Hey remember years ago when everyone thought he was just the hottest thing?

    Yeah….me neither.

    • Cindy says:

      I never understood the fascination with him. He always gave me a really fratty douche vibe.

    • DragonWise says:

      He was very good in Sons of Anarchy. I think sometimes people get confused and assume that because someone is talented, they must also be hot. Not necessarily.

    • Rashida says:


      I never understood his appeal and I stg I experience some face blindness when it comes to him & Garrett Hedlund. They look like the EXACT same person to me lol

  5. LadyLou says:

    Some people don’t feel the need to get married and are content with how things are. Why rock the boat-mentality. If he doesn’t care and does it for it his partner, I don’t see an issue. If he would have said, that he is against marriage in general and still feels forced, that would be more difficult.

    • Paula says:

      I also don’t see a problem in him not being eager to marry, but he could just have stopped at that. His comments about his girlfriend feed into the whole “women are desperate to get married while men don’t care” narrative.

    • Yup, Me says:

      Yes, if he had said “Marriage isn’t important to me, but it is to her and I love her so we’ll be getting married before too long.” Or something like that it would have been a bit better.

      I wonder if he’s waiting to see if he can Chris Pratt? Have a really big hit and his career explodes and then he can dump her an uplevel his partner because he’s got more choices.

    • Rashida says:


      Agreed. Carla Gugino said something interesting that I personally feel the same about (tho don’t often say cuz I would never want to make someone who chose marriage feel bad about their choice! everybody is different & that is not just ok, but good!)

      ‘ As of 2005, Carla Gugino’s boyfriend has been Sebastian Gutierrez, a writer, producer, and director. “[Marriage] isn’t important for us. We like being boyfriend and girlfriend; there’s something sexy and fun about that. We’re very much about, ‘There’s nothing holding us here other than our desire to be together.” ‘

  6. Ana Maria says:

    …and this is exactly why he is not a much bigger star, despite his good looks: I watched the video and he just comes off as an a-hole…but Hugh Grant? LOVE him forever

    • Cassandra says:

      I appreciate Hugh Grant subtly and snarkily calling him on his crap.

      The way Hunnam disrespects his long-term girlfriend in the media is so gross-especially considering she doesn’t really have a platform to express herself and her side of the relationship.

    • Rashida says:

      Omg so…. sidenote I’m dying to include about Grant. I’ve always been ‘meh’ about HughGrants acting. It’s fine, not bad, not amazing.

      BUT THEN I SAW PADDINGTON 2 & IM??? He was So GOOD in that movie omg it was great! also I love how he just goes off on Twitter. Older Hugh Grant is my favorite Hugh Grant now! 😂

  7. My3cents says:

    And that was the final nail. What a douche.

  8. Smalls says:

    Cool. Let’s agree to never speak of him again.

  9. Seraphina says:

    A tale as old as time.

  10. Millennial says:

    He has the worst filter. He also spilled tea in this interview about another actor being miscast getting cut from King Arthur and it messed up the whole movie. I was wondering if anyone had the tea on who it was?

    • Mia4s says:

      I’m a sucker for behind the scenes gossip, so I did some digging (I only managed to sit through 15 minutes of the movie when it came on streaming. He and the movie are AWFUL.) Aside from the fact that if he really thinks one piece of casting was this movie’s only problem he is a massive idiot, here’s what it might be:

      There are no reports of anyone being completely cut, but the character played by Annabelle Wallis allegedly had a much bigger role and supposedly Guy Ritchie wasn’t happy and cut her almost entirely out of the movie. To the point that her presence basically makes no sense. They did a bunch of reshoots after disastrous test screenings and the other female role (don’t know the actress, doesn’t matter) was changed to the point that she was now playing someone else than in the original script.

      That’s the rumour anyway. So I guess the implication is it’s the fault of one of a handful of women in a cast and crew of 95% men? Vomit. 🙄

      • Hikaru says:

        After the metoo scandals each time I hear about a woman being cut out I think she must have been punished for something entirely unrelated to her acting and it makes my gut roll.

      • Millenial says:

        Thanks for that tea!

        I actually sat through the first hour of the film and then browsed my phone while watching the second half. There were MUCH bigger issues than casting – largely Guy Ritchies directorial style, which I’m not convinced is something you can prop up a billion dollar franchise on (not that people won’t give him chance after chance after chance, he is a white man after all!).

        Charlie was actually a good Arthur IMO, and if I hadn’t felt like I was on a bad acid trip while watching parts of the film, I would have liked it more. I was genuinely sad Ritchie mucked it up because I would have invested in the great King Arthur cinematic universe.

        That said, he is SO INDISCREET.

  11. Jenns says:

    Sometimes you just have to throw the whole man out.

  12. Prolet says:

    I don’t get him. Maybe to him been with someone for 14 years counts more than a ring. Maybe he is not into big weddings and she wants one? Either way, to call his gf eager to get married, sounds a bit off to me.
    An what happened to his career, wasn’t he supposed to be a rising star couple of years ago?

  13. Joanna says:

    Don’t kill me, but I don’t think it’s that bad what he said. Usually it is the woman that wants marriage more than the man. Cause that is always set as a goal for us by family, friends etc. I’m sure his gf knows his he feels. But if he loves his gf, he needs to just do it cause it’s important to her. Men imo are told to run from marriage so his opinion is not that unusual. Us women are told “good” girls want to get married and have kids.

    • My3cents says:

      Sure, it just comes off as disrespectful towards her that’s all, the airing and voicing of it in such a way.

    • original_kellybean says:

      I am with you, Joanna. And posted something similar below. I was typing as your comment was being posted, I guess.

    • SM says:

      The outrage out here is not because he doesn’t want to put a ring on it. Yes, people are different, some, including myself, doesn’t need a state confirmation of partnership and family. The problem is how he said that. He doesn’t say what I just said, nor did he say he loves her and will do it for her. It was more like: marriage is crap. But my GF is pushing so will have to do it anyway. Sounds like a disrespectful answer. Like he is going to let that needy woman have her way because he is such a great guy. Idiot.

    • Cindy says:

      I get that, but it’s how dismissive he sounds of it now, and he how dismissive he sounds of his girlfriend in general (with that ghosting story). This doesn’t sound like a healthy, reciprocal relationship at all. You’re giving a public interview, you shouldn’t talk about marrying your girlfriend like it were a chore or a sacrifice. If he had ended his comment with something like “I think our relationship is perfectly fine staying unmarried”, the whole thing would’ve sounded differently.

  14. original_kellybean says:

    Meh. I am sure she knows how he feels. This is probably not the first time she is hearing this. Maybe it’s a joke and she doesn’t care either. Only the two of them know the real story.

  15. original_kellybean says:

    Double post…deleted

  16. Michael says:

    If somebody is in a relationship where one person has all the money and all the power it should not be a surprise that they do not want to commit. They lose the leverage by marrying where as the person with less money and power gain leverage by the legal commitment. She should have left him years ago if she really wanted to marry and he did not. Fair or not it looks like he wants to keep his options open and does not care very much about her feelings of security. Of course in California there are legal remedies for long term partners too.

  17. Deanne says:

    As mentioned above, he said in a past interview that he’s ghosted her for months at a time while working. Now he’s publicly humiliating her by saying being married to her means zero to him, but he’s throwing her a bone and marrying her because she desperately wants it. The guy is a complete jerk. Why would you stay with someone who disrespects you in this way? I used to think he was really attractive. Not any more.

  18. T.Fanty says:

    It’s just such a tired old trope – that he’s too cool for marriage. It’s also the kind of bad Hollywood male cliche of The Artist, that just allows them to let women do ALL the work. We see it time and again. It’s also that hapless man thing that Russell Brand did when he talked about how his wife can’t trust him with their kids. Why do men still think this is cool and why do women allow them to do so?

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      Men think its cool because it works, it gets them what they want, to absolve themselves of responsibility usually in the home or family duties that they find either boring or that they feel that they do not get enough recognition for. So they claim incompetence, the same men who are leaders in their work, responsible for businesses that earn big bucks, that thrive to solve complex situations in the workplace will suddenly become absolutely baffled as to how a dishwasher operates or that their own children require care.

      it’s strategic incompetence. Women put up with it as we are trained to do “wife-work” and carry the emotional load of life, I couldn’t count the number of women I know who hold full time jobs outside the home, sort childcare, pick-up/drop-off school runs, and are also the one doing all household work because his Royal Highness of a husband has had a tough week at work and cannot possibly be expected do any of that, completely ignoring that his wife also has been at work all week.

      Hunnam here is practicing the age old art of publicly letting his partner know that she must continue to tap dance around to show that she is worthy of the guy that was almost Christian Grey, marriage is being dangled like a carrot for her but it will always be out of reach. She should dump and run.

      Thank you for attending my TedTalk.

      • Lindy says:

        “Strategic incompetence” is a fantastic phrase and I hope you don’t mind if I use it!

        I do think that everything you said is spot on. I’m in my second marriage, and you better believe that after a disastrous first marriage I was very cautious heading into my second one, and made very certain that my husband would take on half the household/life management/kid drudgery. And to his credit, he wants to and he does, the vast majority of the time.

        But because the social order is so ingrained, we still have to work hard not to default to the status quo.

        Who really knows what this dude’s relationship is actually like with Morgana. But it’s so hard for me to imagine her ever being happy with someone who is that disrespectful and mean-spirited. Beyond even just the question of would he pull his weight, he just seems like a stunted, selfish teenager.

      • MrsBump says:

        Love this comment ! +1000

  19. Ladiabla says:

    The guy is a dick. First the whole, “I bought her some cheap emeralds” so she’d shut up about the ghosting thing, and now this. Let him go Morgana, you can find someone who’ll treat you better than this. Ugh and to think I found him sexy once. Agree with the other poster who said he’ll be married and knock up some young woman soon after their breakup.

  20. Nia says:

    She can find someone better for her. Who wants to marry someone who doesnt WANT to marry them. Let her go, Jesus.

  21. T says:

    When I read what he said, I took it as he is indifferent about the institution of marriage. Like you can be with someone a long time and the whole “marriage” thing doesn’t really matter to him. BUT knowing it matters to his girlfriend, he looks like a total dbag saying that in an interview, yeesh

    • StormsMama says:

      Lainey posted it yesterday. Watch it. You will recoil at his oozing lack of respect and appreciation and care for her. He just tossed it out to the wolves like it meant nothing.

  22. Missy says:

    Idk, I have other reasons for not loving him (re: ghosting), but my husband said the same thing a few years before we got married and it was about marriage specifically, not anything about me (meaning marriage was not a life goal or something that was important to him). That being said, it was important to me, I said as much and I never felt disrespected. I feel like Charlie doesn’t demonstrate much respect for Morgana.

  23. Margo Smith says:

    Honestly, they both sound like losers to me. Him for being a douche, and her for not loving herself more.

  24. Tiffany says:

    I mean, this is the same dude who thinks Jordan Peterpapter or whatever lobster shirt wearing con artist last name is is the bees knees.

    Sooooooo….not surprised. At all.

  25. pyritedigger says:

    She’s a doormat who also likes the lifestyle and access to celebrity that he provides.

  26. amiloo says:

    I’m kind of in this situation. I’m 41; he’s 43. We’ve been together for 12 years (living together for about 11 years). I think where I went wrong here is that I always said I didn’t care about ever being married. But now that we’re older, I worry more about, “what if something happens to him???” (He races motorcycles and dirt bikes in his free time and flies constantly for work.) I’m eligible for no benefits; I’d be homeless; and I couldn’t advocate for him if any decisions for his life had to be made.

    But he’s like, “Nah, we’re good.” I don’t even want a wedding, just a quick trip to the courthouse. 😫

      You guys can still do Wills giving each other your assets and at a minimum he should sign a healthcare proxy naming you as his agent. If you don’t want to pay a lawyer you can find them online.

    • Alex Schuster says:

      Now you are both matured adults and he should understand that this is a long term commitment and you are at that age starting over it’s so freaking hard. I am 45 and life it’s so hard to start over I dont want a man too scarred to be broken in more than thousand pieces again. You are the only one who needs to take charge of your future life and if he truly loves u or is mature enough will do the right thing

    • Jaded says:

      Get wills ASAP! The first thing Mr. Jaded and I did when we shacked up was re-do our wills.

    ‘If he loves his gf then he needs to do it cause it’s important to her’ !!! Yikes. I’m married ladies and let me tell you, a man who isn’t that interested in marriage does not a good husband make. He HAS to want to say those vows to you, he HAS to want to sign his name on that paper, he HAS to want to make that commitment in EVERY way. If he doesn’t, your marriage won’t work. And NO a long term commitment is NOT ‘practically being married’. That’s why you hear of people dating for a decade, but the marriage lasts 2 years.

    • Lensblury says:

      Thank you for saying that, Mee – I think you helped me a lot. I knew my boyfriend was the one I wanted to marry as soon as we got together (we were friends before). So after a few years of living together and starting to try having a baby, I thought it would be a nice time to get married. He says he isn’t ready, but that he would do it for me. I was a bit unhappy about that, but hadn’t completely said goodbye to the idea yet. After reading these comments (and especially yours) I just went to talk to him and told him I didn’t want us to get married just for me – and I’m feeling relieved and more independent. So if we ever do get married, it’ll be because we both truly want it.

    Does he know he can just keep things to himself?! How disrespectful to say this out loud!

    I will say, I can’t speak to her reasoning for wanting to get married, but this relationship doesn’t seem healthy. If a man can check out on me for four months and is apathetic about marrying me? How many red flags does she need?

    On the other hand, it could be about financial security, which makes more sense to me.

  29. Nicegirl says:

    I’m not down w my fellow commenters talking sh-t about this woman’s physicality. WTAF. Charlie H is not awesome to his long time love. Her looks have nothing to do with it.

    • Jaded says:

      Thank you Nicegirl, I’m appalled at some of the hurtful comments being made about her looks. Charlie is a smug, condescending jerk for saying that and deserves all the dragging, not Morgana.

  30. She dresses tacky, get a full length mirror.

  31. Elizabeth says:

    Wow I just read the article about him ghosting her. What a bizarre excuse, like Colombia is some kind of place cut off from the rest of the world??? That makes no sense.

  32. Y says:

    She puts up with it though. If one puts up with be treated that way, how can they expect the other to change? Just saying. I wouldn’t put up with it and I certainly would never marry someone who didn’t feel about it as I did. To each their own though.

  33. Case says:

    Eww. I mean, I think feeling indifferent toward marriage is fine. But if he says he’ll do it because it matters to her why hasn’t he gone through with it already?

  34. Angela82 says:

    Why do women like this guy?

    That being said I am honest about not wanting marriage and so is my boyfriend, but when one wants something badly and the other dismisses it and does not address it that’s where he comes off as a complete ahole. Not to mention how he tells the media all this. I would dump him if I were her.

  35. sharon says:

    She’s a doormat, and stays because she knows she can’t do better, and needs his money. She relies on him completely financially, refuses to open up her jewelry business and make her own living, she screwed herself over.

  36. Elizabeth says:

    He is such an a-hole.

  37. Annetommy says:

    He sounds a di*ck. I assume it’s financially advantageous for him to stay single. No divorce settlement. I can’t understand trying to talk someone into marrying me. It sounds demeaning.

  38. Michelle says:

    I hope that the next time he ‘ghosts’ her for his pathetic method acting, a wonderful person pops in her life and gives her the love and attention she deserves and SHE ghosts Charlie.

  39. Nicegirl says:

    My hope is that this lady will end up living well no matter this idiot & ‘wasted time’ be damned. Croon it out w The Eagles 🦅 & ease on down the road, anytime. For anyone in a relationship that’s not working, it’s never ‘too late’- you’re always worth a better experience/ situation. Living well is not necessarily about $. 🖖🏽

  40. v1nc3nz00 says:

    but … marrying someone who doesn’t want to it’s even worse no? If marriage is important to her, just pack your bag and find an appropriate partner (I know it’s not easy)

  41. Riley says:

    This makes me so sad!! I absolutely adored him during SOA days. But he is not a good interview. He is one of those loose cannons who should never speak in public unless someone else wrote it for him.

  42. Silvie says:

    They’ve been together 14 years and he’s already been married (very briefly) once. I think his point is that he’s committed to her and doesn’t need a piece of paper. They live on a farm and have a very quiet lifestyle. I think it would be fair to call him if a douche if he’d kept her hanging on for 14 years, but also her fault for putting up with that if he’d been telling her all along they’d get married one day. Their relationship is anything but casual and I’ve never read any gossip about him cheating on her. I’d rather have a guy be honest and committed than a ring on my finger if I had to choose.

    • Riley says:

      FYI-They live in LA. It was all over that they were going to move to a farm and live a self sustainable lifestyle but they backed out at the last minute.

  43. Isa says:

    Lots of celebrities talk about not wanting to get married and although personally, marriage was very important to me, I understood that they felt committed regardless of the legal contract. That’s not the vibe that this interview puts out and it’s why Charlie seems like a jerk. I think if he spoke about how he already felt like, after 14 years, that they were already in it until the end, he wouldn’t come off as such a jerk. Instead, I agree with the above assessment that they will break up and he will marry someone within a couple of years.

  44. Talia says:

    So, I have a few thoughts. I agree with the overall sentiment that his delivery is horrible. He could have phrased it in a more respectful, less douchey way. BUT I don’t disagree with his POV. He has been very consistent that he’s not interested in getting married. He did it once and it wasn’t his thing and he clearly enjoys a long-term relationship. I say all this because I’m basically him, but a woman haha. I have always been very very upfront with my boyfriend that I don’t want to get married. He really does and brings it up every few years. We have been together for 10 years, since our sophomore year of college. When this topic comes up at parties, he gets annoyed when I say that I’m not interested in getting married. I never communicate it in a way that’s disrespectful or dismissive of his feelings but I do share that it’s not the way I’m wired and I love and adore my bf enough to be honest with him from the start. This is all to say that I don’t think there’s anything wrong with being with someone for 10+ years, not getting married despite your partner wanting it.

  45. Sophie says:

    Damn he looks fine in those paparazzi photos.

  46. K says:

    He’s not doing a good job of showing off any reasons why she’s supposedly so eager to marry him…

  47. Michele says:

    He isn’t a dick or a douche. This article is slanted to sympathize to her. Sorry Celebitchy. He is entitled to not want to marry when push comes to shove. Men like this, “beautiful ones” never grown up and rarely want to marry. He has that right. He’s probably been very open with her from the beginning that he wasn’t interested in marriage or didn’t believe in marriage. Women often stick around because they think they can change the guy. She has spent 10 long years of her youth with him and now is pissed off. She is pissed off at herself but is taking it out on his public image. Women need to take responsibility for their choices and stop blaming men, their parents, their grandparents, their anxiety, their teachers, their whatever…..what’s the saying “don’t let your boyfriend keep you from your husband.” In other words, had she left him years ago, she’d be married by now.

  48. rayonlight says:

    The issue is not what he said, its that he said it publicly. His girlfriend is relentlessly bullied online, so bad at one point; he had to come out and put a stop to it. I’m surprised he disclosed this much, he’s spent the better part of King Arthur’s press talking about her, singing her praises; it was annoying as hell to be honest.

    This doesn’t make him look bad in any way, he’s the movie star, in no time people will forget. His GF however, she will have the online trolls eating this up.

    No cool Charlie!!
