For those of you planning on seeing the Fifty Shades of Grey movie next year (that’ll be most of you, then), we have some disappointing news regarding Jamie Dornan’s star turn as Christian Grey.
The Irish actor and mega-hunk has confirmed that he will not be going full frontal in the film. We repeat, there will be no Jamie Dornan nudity. More’s the pity.
You’d be forgiven for presuming that the star would be stripping off for the role of bondage-loving sadomasochist Mr Grey, but nope.
‘There were contracts in place that said that viewers wouldn’t be seeing my, um …’ the actor told The Guardian.
‘Todger?’ He laughs. ‘Yeah, my todger.’
Access denied, ladies and gents.
The former model also added that he didn’t film any ‘gratuitous’ sex scenes, hinting that the long-awaited adaptation of the bestselling book might actually be more than a total filth-fest.
‘You want to appeal to as wide an audience as possibly without grossing them out,’ he said. ‘You don’t want to make something gratuitous and ugly and graphic.’
Jamie also took the chances to hit back at claims the Fifty Shades film glorifies sexual violence against women.
Conservative groups in the US have issued statements accusing the film of ‘normalising domestic violence’. But Jamie disagrees: ‘I think it’s very hard to argue that when it is all consensual,’ he said.
‘Half the book is about making contracts. Permission and agreement that this be done. There’s no rape, no forced sexual situations.’
Fifty Shades of Grey will hit cinema screens February 2015.
