This Guys from Seattle Thinks He is the Real-Life Christian Grey
Everybody, meet the real-life Christian Grey! We know that all this fuss about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie might be too much, but there is always space for some real-life celebrities, isn’t it?
If you consider yourself to be a real-life Anastasia Steels, we have found your pair! Apparently there is a businessman named Brayden Oslon who believes he is the real-life Christian Grey.
The 27-year-old businessman claims he has received messages from thousands of Fifty Shades of Grey fans because they believe he is the real-life Christian Grey.
When he spoke about the confusion and fame he got over night because of the popular film with Business Insider, he told them that some women even flown to Seattle to meet him.
This gentleman says he has professional and bibliographical similarities with 50 Shades of Grey character, Christian Grey.
Among those similarities is this: he also runs a holding company called Wilhelm Enterprises and was voted Seattle’s ‘best man’.
The company, which is derived from Olson’s middle name, is involved in education gaming technology and real estate.
“I’m the youngest entrepreneur ever admitted to the entrepreneurs’ organization in my region.” Pretty impressive, isn’t it?
But there are some differences between Olson and Christian Grey. For starters, Olson doesn’t have a Charlie Tango helicopter, but claims he has the item on to do list.
However, we know that “Mister Grey” is a wealthy man, a billionaire. Olson is not a billionaire (not yet at least).
The most important thing is, we have no idea if this real-life Christian Grey is interested in S&M, like the character is.
In the interviews he did, there is no mention of a Red Room, but be sure he will build that for you, if you want.
He did say to Business Insider during an interview that several women he dated mentioned that he has similarities to Grey. Olsen had not yet read the book series, but over time more and more people started making the same association.
After the film was released (this 13 February), he started gaining lot more of attention. About 1,000 fans of the books reached out over e-mail and through Facebook messages and friend request.
“I knew the movie would bring more attention, but I continue to be really surprised by the whole matter,” he said.
Oh, and did we mention that from those several women that came to meet him, Olson took some of them to dinner?
It is true but after all he claims he is the real-life Christian Grey. Grey would have.
Some of the things he stated during an interview:
“So, I like to point out the professional and bibliographical similarities. I do run a holding company. I live in Seattle. I was voted Seattle’s ‘best man.’ I’m the youngest entrepreneur ever admitted to the entrepreneurs’ organization in my region”.
“Christian Grey has got me beat, he is a character from a book. I don’t think a real person can compete. I claim to be the real Brayden Olson. I’m sure you can relate to how strange it would be to have a fictional character made up and so many things true about you in your real life.”
One toy Olson has that Grey doesn’t is a BMW i8. Grey drives an Audi R8. “I think it’s definitely a Christian Grey type of car,” Olson said.
Right now “Mister Olson” is a single man, maybe you can be the Anastasia Steele he has been looking for?
What do you think? Is he the real-life Christian Grey?
