Actor Charlie Wright Criticized For His New Role; Has Dating Affair Or Perhaps A Girlfriend?

"Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul" actor Charlie Wright has been doing all he can to do justice to his talents and abilities. But still, he has earned a fair share of criticisms for his role as Rodrick Heffley, and some of them might be pretty harsh on this young man who is only 18 in age.

So let us see how the world is reacting to his role and also find out if he has a girlfriend in his life.

Success Does Not Come Without Criticisms:

Success and criticisms are two co-related things. When you are relentless on earning success, you are bound to receive some criticisms as well. The same can be said about Charlie Wright as he too has been lashed by the internet world for his role in the upcoming movie "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul" releasing May 19, 2017, in the states.

A social media hashtag protesting has been making shockwaves in the internet using #NotMyRodrick. The hashtag is used to protest against the casting of actor Charlie Wright as Rodrick Heffley in "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul." 

People did not enjoy the fact that Wright replaced Devon Bostick as Rodrick and thus, the trailer gathered 11,300 dislikes against 1,800 likes after ten days of release. The trailer of the movie was publicized on March 16, 2017.

Not only that, on March 23rd, a petition titled “Not My Rodrick” was created on iPetitions which criticized that Wright looks like "Johnny Depp Willy Wonka.” Over the next three days, the petitions gained over 10,000 signatures.

This video too was posted on YouTube.

Apparently, the world is not enjoying the fact that Charlie is playing Rodrick in the movie. 

Charlie has taken a lot of bashings, but still, he has not spoken much about it and maybe, he wants to silence the critics by his works and dedication.

But still, if you 're a fan of the movie series and have enjoyed the trailer thus far, you might as well go to a theater near you on May 19, 2017, and watch the movie.

Does Charlie Have A Girlfriend, Or Is He Gay?

Charlie has not been that open about his personal life, and thus, he has kept his dating affairs to himself and not revealed if he currently has a girlfriend or not. Maybe he is getting bigger in his career and focusing more on his professional life. And he does have a bright future ahead. 

People also question his sexuality and call him a gay. Celebrities are always surrounded by such rumors and Charlie too has been a target of such rumors. But he has not addressed these rumors and opened up about his sexuality which is why no major conclusion could be reached at this point. 

So let us wait and see if the actor comes forth and reveals anything about his sought for dating life and his sexual preferences.
