It can't be easy to immediately pop into character every time you're about to shoot a graphic sex scene for a movie, and that's why Jamie Dornan has fessed up to what, exactly, helped him find his groove while filming Fifty Shades of Grey.
As it turns out, he wasn't picturing his wife while he was getting all hot and heavy with Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson). And he didn't go into a closet by himself and look at naughty magazines or anything like that either.
You're going to love this one. I promise.
Jamie watched Sex and the City DVDs with pal Joe Dempsie from Game of Thrones.
Yes, for real. Like the two of them sat there and watched the entire box set of the series.
Is this semi-hilarious or what?
Don't get me wrong, Sex and the City is only, like, one of the best shows that was ever on TV -- but can you honestly picture two dudes sitting there getting their Carrie Bradshaw fix on? Ok, you're right. They were probably paying much more attention to Samantha. But whatever.
Out of all the things he could've done to prepare himself for Christian Grey's role, watching Sex and the City has to be last on the list of what we'd expect! But you have to admit, it's pretty cute and kind of endearing -- and it shows what a cool personality Jamie has.
Of course, now that's all I'm going to be able to picture when the Fifty Shades flick is finally released. I'll probably laugh through the whole thing. (Go figure.)
Do you find it funny that Jamie drew inspiration from Sex and the City?
