Hunnam has done the kind deed of preparing meals for McNelis and her friends and doing the household chores. He believed it would be nice for her to return home to a spick-and-span environment.

Hunnam also said that he keeps up with love-making while simultaneously adhering to a strict fitness regimen. A health buff, the Tv star likes to do a variety of hobbies such as jogging, swimming, hiking, and martial arts.

The sweet pair know how to respect each other's personal space. McNellis would not interfere with Hunnam's time spent on method acting, in which an actor completely inhabits the character's mental and emotional state.

The couple is not hesitant to interact traditionally with one another. While Hunnam was filming in a remote area of Columbia, the two kept in frequent touch by exchanging daily love letters.

Even though they have been together for a long time, questions about whether or not they will get married keep coming up.

Hunnam steers clear of love scenes since he is now in a committed relationship, explaining that doing love scenes was not his girlfriend's favorite aspect of his career. He is also a self-professed germaphobe.

Hunnam even promoted his girlfriend's jewelry brand in various interviews. The brilliant actor admitted that he was not the biggest fan of wearing jewelry, but he changed his mind when McNelis made him a stunning ring.

Aside from that, the heartthrob actor enjoys traveling abroad with the jewelry artisan, who is an avid traveler. Together they visited beautiful countries worldwide, including India, McNelis' favorite country.

Hunnam is sweet to McNelis and a fierce protector of her. Since most of his fanbase are women, these female fans would throw unpleasant remarks at his girlfriend. He once said on the now-deleted Facebook fan page:

"She has been my loyal and supportive partner long before I had any success or money. Why would you attack her out of admiration for me? It makes no sense."

Hunnam replied to criticism by saying he loved McNelis and wanted to spend the next 60 years with her. According to the TV actor, his girlfriend is beautiful, intelligent, and wants to live a simple life.

WHY ARE MORGANA MCNELLIS AND CHARLIE HUNNAM NOT MARRIED

Even though they have been together for a long time, questions about whether or not they will get married keep coming up. Hunnam shared his views on marriage during an interview with Andy Cohen on SiriusXM.

The actor went on a press trip to promote his new film "The Gentleman," in which he co-stars with Hugh Grant, Matthew McConaughey, and Colin Farrell. The interview with Cohen was part of the trip.

The dashing actor noted at that time that he was "sort of indifferent" about the idea of tying the knot. He added that he and McNellis had different perspectives and that she was "very eager" about stepping up their relationship.

He then later clarified his marriage remarks, saying that they had hurt his girlfriend's feelings as he was unable to articulate his thoughts fully. He realized that it did not accurately represent his genuine feelings.

Hunnam also recalled being exhausted during the press tour. He said he spent 12 hours a day doing interviews during the three-day press tour of his film.

The apologetic actor admitted that he was "in the heat of the moment." To clarify his point, Hunnam said marriage did not make him nervous, adding, "I'm, like, so romantic, and the reality is I sort of consider myself married."

Despite his mistakes, Hunnam displays his everlasting love for his girlfriend and seems to be planning their future together. He ensures that they can soon effectively balance marriage and children.
