Jamie Dornan freaks my beans (and not in the nether regions, as many seem to experience). After watching him for two seasons in The Fall, I can’t look at him and think anything other than “freak alert” – which is I suppose why he’s a perfect fit for the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades.
Speaking of his role in the Twilight-fanfic-cum (ahem)-housewife-erotica, Jamie knows why some people aren’t all that fond of the story and find it kind of sexist, but he still wants to set the record straight (via Elle UK):
“The love story is more important than the BDSM aspect. I mean, we are going to tell a love story, you know, it can’t just be what happens in the Red Room, that’s not a film. There’s so much more going on than that.”
“I can understand why people say tying a woman up and spanking her is misogynistic. But actually, more men are submissives than women. Very powerful men. It’s a far bigger scene than I imagined: in pretty much any city in the world that you could name, people want to get spanked with a paddle with studs on it.”
Well, I’m sure he did lots of research and knows what he’s talking about. Ahem.
Fifty Shades of Grey comes out on Valentine’s Day – will you be watching it?
Also, because I’m kind and generous, I’m tucking a naked picture of Jamie Dornan’s ass behind the cut. WHY IS IT SO PERT AND ROUND? That is a lady’s ass if ever I saw one. But uh… Happy New Year!
