'I wear, like, quite a big bag.'
Jamie Dornan’s recent interviews for Fifty Shades Freed have been comedy gold recently. Besides accidentally revealing his wife had never seen a Fifty Shades film, he basically told thousands of people on live television that he covers up with a ‘wee bag’ to film the franchise’s steamy sex scenes.
During an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Jimmy quizzed Jamie Dornan on his character Christian Grey’s sex scenes with his co-star Dakota Johnson. When asked if he ‘covered up’ down there when the cameras got rolling, Jamie Dornan delivered and his Irish brogue led to an unintentionally hilarious moment.
He responded, ‘I wear like a wee bag.’
After the audience began laughing, he quickly realised his gaffe and backtracked, ‘That’s an expression that I say from where I’m from! A ‘wee’ bag. But that doesn’t actually mean that it’s ‘wee’ in size. I wear, like, quite a big bag. Like a huge travel case where you have to stuff everything inside. Like a potato sack.’
Jimmy didn’t let it go though and Jamie took the audience down the rabbit hole as he described the history of his wee bag. And it was slightly gross.
Jamie said, ‘I think I was right to think this way: On the first movie, there was a selection of [bags], and I picked one. I thought you’d take them out of the packets and they’d be brand new; they’d have that brand new smell. Then I sort of picked one that I liked the look of and the shape of, and in the seam it said, ‘Inmate No. 3.’ It was sewn into it. I was like, ‘S–t. This has been used before?’’
Yikes. Well, at least he’ll never have to don the mantle – er, bag – again now that Fifty Shades Freed has wrapped up.
The film Fifty Shades Freed comes out in the UK on February 9 and will be the last film in the franchise, with stars such as Dakota Johnson, Kim Basinger, Rita Ora and Tyler Hoechlin starring.
