Jamie Dornan Reveals Kinky Way He Got Ready for '50 Shades of Grey'

Jamie DornanBeing a Hollywood actor can be hard and ... interesting work. Just ask Jamie Dornan. He recently revealed the extremes he went to in order to prepare for his role as Christian Grey in the highly anticipated film, Fifty Shades of Grey. And oh boy, were they extreme.

While he knew it wasn't a role for the prudish, there were still some things he had to do that he said were majorly embarrassing.


According to the Irish Independent, Dornan says that doing his research for his role involved hiring two people to get down and dirty S&M style while he watched ... and took notes. He said:

It’s such a big part of the character that I wanted to know what I was doing. This guy came along with his submissive, I sat in the corner with a beer and watched. My driver was on the other side of the door, God knows what he thought.

What’s more, Dornan had to totally uproot his family from London to Vancouver while filming the movie, even though his wife Amelia Warner was pregnant with their baby. He added:

A lot of people would have had a sh*t fit at 30-something weeks pregnant, hearing, ‘Darling, we’re going to Vancouver this week for four months -- we’re going to have a Canadian baby and I’m going to do a film, where, for parts of it, I will be naked.’ That’s a tough pitch, but my wife is an incredible person.

Aww. It seems as though he has a great, solid marriage, and any man who is totally dedicated to his wife makes him even more attractive in my book. Still, I don’t know what I would do if my husband told me that he had to watch some kinky S&M stuff go down as part of his research for his new role.

What do you think of Jamie’s admission about doing his research for his Christian Grey role?
