Jamie Dornan Reveals What He Really Hates About Playing Christian Grey

jamie dornan hogan shootWhen Jamie Dornan found out that he had been cast as Christian Grey, he probably chuckled with glee, realizing he would quickly go from being a little-known Irish actor to international household name, right? Err, well, not quite.

Jamie was interviewed by The Telegraph recently and discussed how he really feels about all the attention he's been getting since being brought on board Fifty Shades of Grey ... 

Becoming splenetic about the topic, Jamie said:

Nobody sane wants just to be famous. I hate it when people say you’re asking for it by doing films. No, I’m asking for work, and I’m asking to get paid for doing something I love. I’m not asking to be followed down a street by some f****** pap.

YOW! Do we have another Alec Baldwin on our hands here? Kidding! I mean, I don't exactly blame him for being outraged by stalker paparazzi, especially as he's a new dad ... And I really do get the impression he's in it "for the work." Unfortunately, the work he's doing -- especially Fifty Shades! -- comes with fame, and with fame comes some of these ugly side effects, like stalkerazzi.

Thankfully, he does know a thing or two about how to handle it, having remarked recently how he watched and learned from ex-girlfriend Keira Knightley as she contended with aggressive photogs. And if it really gets out of control (as it very well may, especially if second and third Fifty Shades movies are green-lit), he can always ask Universal to help him out as they reportedly helped Charlie Hunnam -- and hire him some bodyguards!

What do you think about Jamie Dornan's take on fame?

They work at playing a part , so when are having time with family they should be left to enjoy especially when they have children who do not ask for the fame

ACTING TO ME IS a job JUST AS ANY OTHER JOB, EXCEPT BEING AN ACTOR YOU ARE SEEN BY EVERYONE, AND EVERYONE EXPECT SOMETHING MORE FROM YOU,i THINK THE PAPARAZZI ARE TO AGGRESSIVE, AND DANGEROUS THERE SHOULD BE LAWS AND BOUNDARIES FOR THEM OR BE ARRESTED AND SERVE TIME, ACTORS ARE JUST PEOPLE LIKE EVERYONE ELSE TRYING TO MAKE A LIVING TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR FAMILY'S. i THINK IT IF UNFAIR THE WAY A LOT OF THEM ARE TREATED AND HOUNDED BY THE PAPARAZZI, THEY WANT TO GIVE THE JOY OF MOVIES TO THE WORLD BUT FIND IT IMPOSSIBLE SOMETIMES TO EVEN GO TO THE STORE AND SHOP. I SAW OUTLAW ALL THE PAPARAZZI AND BE DONE WITH IT...

There are bloodsuckers in every field. In acting, moreso.

Nothing can prepare you for a life of fame and celebrity.   If you don't know who you are before you rocket into stardom, then fame will define and own you.   Although I've only recently took interest in Jamie Dornan since Fifty Shades filming wrapped up in Vancouver, I believe he's a fairly grounded realist who doesn't take himself too seriously.  He's got a beautiful wife and little baby so that's in his favor.  No question, though, he is going to struggle with the intense adoration because of his role as Christian Grey.  He's a very handsome, sexy guy and judging from his incredible portrayal of Paul Spector in BBC's crime thriller, The Fall, he'll blow the proverbial panties off women as the "kinky" dom in Fifty Shades.  If you weren't interested in BDSM before Fifty Shades, Jamie will likely make you more than curious.
