Not everyone's excited to see hottie Charlie Hunnam get nekkid and nasty as Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey.

Believe it or not, more than 75,000 people so far have signed a petition on Change.org demanding that out actor Matt Bomer replace Charlie and that Alexis Bledel replace Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of the popular E.L. James erotic novel. Hey, were you one of them? Get over it already!

“Matt Bomer is the PERFECT DESCRIPTION OF CHRISTIAN GREY AND ALEXIS BLEDEL IS THE PERFECT ACTRESS TO REPRESENT ANASTASIA STEELE and if THEY ARE NOT, NOBODY WILL BE," the passionate petition reads. "So please PLEASE, all of the GREYsessed and Bomerettes in the world NEED those actors. They always will be for us the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. WE CAN DO ANYTHING GUYS, ANYTHING.”

Well, the White Collar stud gracefully responded to the petition during a chat with ETonline, saying, “I’m so grateful for the fans and touched. I’m looking forward to seeing the movie with Charlie and Dakota.”

Cut to a shot of Matt sobbing and sticking pins in his Charlie Hunnam voodoo doll.

What do you think? Would Matt be a better — and hotter — Christian than Charlie?
