Before he was known as Christian Grey, Irish hottie Jamie Dornan was best known for sitting around in his skivvies looking broodish. And no, not in a weird, gross, live-in-your-mom's-basement-eating-Cheetos-for-dinner kind of way. Dornan used to make a living as a Calvin Klein underwear model.
Because apparently we needed another reason to fan ourselves when the Fifty Shades of Grey actor's name crosses our minds daydreams. And just because it's a good day, the actor has opened up about his modeling days.
Dornan had the modeling thing down pat, too. First of all, he's really, really, really ridiculously good looking. Second, he was apparently really good at posing.
I suppose it speaks to his natural acting abilities, because it turns out that the mega-hunk didn't even like modeling! I can imagine his inner monologue -- act like a model, act like a model, act like a model ...
Anyway, he told the Evening Standard:
"I've never felt massively satisfied from standing there while someone takes my photograph ... it's never given me a thrill, but it would take a very foolish man to turn down the stuff that was offered to me.
"You're in your twenties, and people are going to give you a silly amount of money to lean against a wall with your head down. F**k me, you've got to do it."
For whatever reason you did it, Mr. Dornan, all we can say is we're glad you did.
Would you ever consider taking a job that required you to be practically naked in public?
