Sons of Anarchy star, Charlie Hunnam recently revealed his workout secret to Men’s Health. The actor says, “I try to do it all. I also try to make love as often as I can.” He added that it is an important part of staying fit (and we won’t object!) The news has caused fans to wonder, who Charlie Hunnam is dating? If you want to know some fun facts about Charlie Hunnam’s girlfriend in 2017, here’s what you need to know about Morgana McNelis.
She was Cyber-Bullied
This time last year, Hunnam had to post an important message to his fans, regarding a terrible series of hateful and judgemental comments about his girlfriend. The actor quickly went to her defense, asking his fans to “respectfully stop.” Entertainment Weekly reported in March 2016 that Hunnam asked his fans to quit harassing his girlfriend online. According to Hunnam, the couple have been together for about a dozen years, long before his fame. “It has been brought to my attention that there is a group of immature girls posting a large number of hard messages aimed at my long-time girlfriend,” he wrote on a Facebook fan page at the time. He asked fans to stop and added, “She is an intelligent, beautiful, kind person, who just tried to live a simple life and has nothing to do with the entertainment industry.” He continued to say that he is confused by the negative and unprovoked attacks from people who “call themselves my fans.”
She Has a Jewelry Designing Business
The woman who stole Hunnam’s heart is the proud owner of Los Angeles based jewelry company called, Maison de Morgana. On her Instagram account, there are beautiful photos of models wearing her unique creations. If you’re looking for hot pics of Charlie Hunnam’s girlfriend, the classy lady does not post many photos of herself online—she seems to be a private, humble person, passionate about her career. Morgana McNelis’ age is reportedly 33 and she has also dabbled in acting, producing, and costume design. Since she is not a celebrity, her net worth is unknown, but she might be sharing some of the benefits of Charlie Hunnam’s net worth of $8.0 million!
She Tends to Farm Animals with Charlie
McNelis and her super star boyfriend own two donkeys and 30 chickens on their ranch in California. Hunnam told 7 Nights magazine in 2013 that they moved out of Hollywood to tend to their animals and they enjoy their big, organic garden. “We are going to try to live a bit more sustainably,” said Hunnam, who takes joy in the finer things in life. He’s not about the fame and glory, but more about living a modest life and just genuinely being a good person. Yet another reason we love this man!
McNelis Loves to Travel
The beautiful travel bug loves the rain in London, and seeing the world is one of her passions. In 2016, People reported that she hopes to visit India saying, “I know the mystical charm and cultural richness of India would be life changing.” Unfortunately, McNelis didn’t get to travel with Hunnam to Columbia while he was filming The Lost City of Z last year, and the couple went without communication for nearly 5 months!
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Hunnam explained that the mail delivery system in Columbia was unreliable, and though he attempted to send her letters, it was clear they were never received. “It [was] completely unreliable. I received a letter from her, and I realized that from the tone of it and things she was saying that she hadn’t received the two letters that I sent before,” said Hunnam. He made up for it, though, with emeralds for his lady, no less! “I had the benefit of shooting in Colombia, where they have rather lovely and somewhat cheap emeralds,” Hunnam admitted. “My girlfriend is a jewelry designer, so I was able to come back with an appropriately sized gift. It didn’t remedy all of the trouble I was in, but it got me halfway there,” he quipped.
She Supported Hunnam for the Lead Role in Fifty Shades of Grey
When Hunnam first accepted his role as Christian Grey (before Jamie Dornan landed it), he told Hollywoodlife.com that his girlfriend was always “part of the decision-making process,” whenever he chooses a role. He admitted McNelis loved the 50 Shades books saying, “She read them and loved them and she was really excited at the potential of this opportunity for me.”
However, the role of Christian Grey would have been a stretch from his badass, motorcycle riding, drug dealing gang leader he played on Sons of Anarchy, and ultimately, Hunnam felt the role just wasn’t for him. Speaking of drug dealing, McNelis was actually in tabloid headlines for allegedly selling marijuana out of an illegal dispensary in California in 2009! But it seems for Charlie Hunnam’s girlfriend, drugs aren’t her thing. The police report filed shows Morgana McNelis as the defendant in the case, but then again, how many Morgana McNelis’ could there be in Cali? Since the allegations against her don’t seem to be confirmed, it’s possible tabloids pointed the finger at the wrong one.
So, it looks like the celebrity’s supportive girlfriend is more involved in his life than it may seem—the two have spent many years together and Hunnam has said he hopes to spend the next 60 years by her side. Let’s hope he puts a ring on it soon!
