Ever since Jamie Dornan became our new Christian Grey, we've been waiting with bated breath to hear what he has to say about the role. Charlie Hunnam had spoken to the press about scoring the gig and his expectations for it just days after the big announcement, so now that over two weeks have gone by since we learned that Jamie is The Man we've all been waiting for, it's sort of strange that he's kept so tight-lipped, amirite?!
Well, now he's finally broken his silence ... sorta. Knowing he now has our full attention, the model-turned-actor recently posted a tweet and video!
Check it out ...
People I care about made an advert. Apart from the obvious fire hazard, I think it's great. Looking sharp CB! https://t.co/ZqLT8BAANd— Jamie Dornan (@JamieDornan1) November 5, 2013
So adorable! And how sweet that Jamie wanted to use his newfound fame to help plug his loved ones' venture. Especially considering that the company is rather new, small, and Belfast, Ireland-based. How lovely of him. But ... what about playing Christian?!
Why won't he talk? Even just say he's excited? Or reply to E.L. James or send her a funny tweet or post an Instagram pic that piques our interest? How lame!
OR ... perhaps he's been told to keep a low-profile. Maybe Universal isn't so keen on him fanning the fires -- of either elation or backlash related to his casting and the film. Maybe they don't want to have to spring for bodyguards for Jamie the way they had to for Charlie. Maybe everything is now super hush-hush since filming's been postponed, and the producers just want to get all of their ducks in a row before their leading man starts squawking about the flick on Twitter?
All possible explanations that are fair enough. But as heartwarming as that ad and his sharing of it was, let's hope it's not too much longer before he starts talking Fifty Shades!
Why do you think Jamie hasn't spoken out yet?
