charlie hunnam katey sagal getty 'Sons of Anarchy's' Katey Sagal on Charlie Hunnam dropping out of 'Fifty Shades of Grey': 'I would believe him'Katey Sagal, matriarch of the FX drama “Sons of Anarchy,” stopped by “Watch What Happens Live” on Tuesday (Nov. 6), where host Andy Cohen asked her a run-down of questions about her various co-stars and a caller asked her about Charlie Hunnam dropping out of “Fifty Shades of Grey” — was it really about a scheduling conflict?

“Charlie is a very private guy and even though we work on a TV show
together, we don’t work every day together, so I haven’t really spoken
with him that much about it,” says Sagal. “My feeling is schedule definitely has a
part to play in it and I’m sure he had very good reasons for why he is
not in that movie. I know he was doing another film right after that
one, it was very backed up, so I would believe him.”

Have you ever seen Bette Midler b****-slap anyone: “No, but I’ve seen her throw her shoes across the room.”

Charlie Hunnam, boxers, briefs or commando: “Ohhhh, wow. That’s a good question. I’m gonna say boxers.”

Describe Ed O’Neill’s breath: “Sweet.”

Who would win in a fight, your “Sons of Anarchy” character or Peg Bundy: “Gemma.”

What is your fondest memory of John Ritter: “Oh, so many. I laughed my ass off all the time. So sweet, wonderful.”

Did you ever smoke weed with Bob Dylan: “[laughs] I could barely speak to Bob Dylan when I was working with him, so who knows? I don’t know, maybe.”

One word to describe Christina Applegate: “Spiritual.”
