Jamie Dornan's Friends Have Some Strong Opinions on His '50 Shades' Role

50 Shades of GreyRaise your hand if you're dying to see Jamie Dornan bring Christian Grey to life in the movie adaptation of one of the best-selling books of all time?

*Raises hand*

I know I'm not the only fangirl who can't wait to see the sexy smoldering Irishman as the BDSM-obsessed bad boy who falls in love with virginal sweetheart Anastasia Steele, but I also know there are some people who will definitely not be watching Fifty Shades of Grey.


Like Dakota Johnson's parents Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. My parents (I'm actually kind of hoping that my dad doesn't even know what this is -- fingers crossed!). The clergy.

Now we can add Jamie Dornan's friends to the (short) list of people who would rather stay home and wash their hair than go see our generation's 9 1/2 Weeks. He recently told the Evening Standard that his friends are less than interested in seeing him as Christian Grey:

A friend of mine said, "I heard about Fifty Shades. Congratulations on the role. That’s going to be disgusting. I won’t watch it."

Ha! Well it's nice to know that Jamie's friends are helping to keep him grounded, since a big part of his off-camera charm is that adorable "aw shucks" attitude. It would suck to have fame go to his head.

And despite the list of people not interested in seeing the film, I have a feeling that it's not going to be a problem for ticket sales.

Would you want to see Fifty Shades if one of your friends were playing Christian or Ana?
