Charlie Hunnam has finally broken his silence since abruptly departing the "Fifty Shades of Grey" adaptation earlier this month, revealing that in the days since that shake-up, he's been keeping focused on family and work.

Hunnam didn't provide an explanation for jumping ship on the hotly-anticipated adaptation of the steamy E.L. James novel, neither confirming nor denying rumors that he left the film due to creative differences over the script. Instead, the former Christian Grey discussed his state of mind since his whirlwind entry and exit from the production.

"I am doing good," Hunnam told E! News. "I am just really concentrating on work. It's been a really busy time."

E! News reported that Hunnam's father, Billy, passed away last May, and the British actor said he's been keeping close with his family back home in England since.

"I have had some family stuff going on so just trying to stay focused and stay positive and keep trying to do a good job at work and be with my family and stay positive," he said.

Hunnam's day job, playing Jax Teller on FX drama "Sons of Anarchy," is keeping him busy, he said, and the show is set to end after about 13 more episodes. Hunnam said that after production wraps on that project, he'll spend some time across the pond with family before shooting another film with his "Pacific Rim" director Guillermo del Toro.

"I just want to ... go on to a new chapter of life," he said.
