Charlie Hunnam Reveals Why His Latest Movie Is A "Love Letter" To His Girlfriend
We hate to break it to you, but Charlie Hunnam has had a girlfriend for over 12 years, *cries*.
Not one to normally discuss his private life, Hunnam confirmed his latest movie 'The Lost City Of Z' is actually a type of "love letter" for his GF, Morgana McNeils.
Last year the actor revealed he pretty much ghosted Morgana while filming, as the mail system was down.
"We went to Colombia and the mail system doesn't really work very well. It's completely unreliable. I received a letter from her and I realised from the tone of it and things she was saying that she hadn't received the two letters I sent before."

"I then just stopped writing to her altogether which obviously makes me sound like a total bastard. Appropriately so, but I was very apologetic."
"I bought her an emerald when I returned home from Colombia, because it's the place of emeralds. But I think she was offended I brought that up because it felt reductive to her of that real sacrifice she had made for this, which was enormous."
Hunnam has now dedicated his performance in the movie to her.
"I almost hate going to see films I've been in for the first time. But this was a different experience. I took my girlfriend with me, and she watched it and recognised that it was both an apology, a recognition and a love letter to her. We were making it for our loved ones."
Now that filming is over, he's keen to spend a lot more time with his lady love and it looks like marriage is on the cards...
"I was working on Sons of Anarchy for seven of the last nine years and between every season I'd do a film," he told the Sunday Mirror.
"I was working 100 hours a week, 51 weeks a year for eight years straight. So if Morgana and I are going to start talking about children and getting married, I'm going to have to figure out a way to balance that a little bit more effectively."
