Jamie Dornan Shares Details About 'Fifty Shades' Raunchiest Scenes

jamie dornan christian greyIt's official: we're less than six weeks away from the world premiere of Fifty Shades of Grey. For any fans who read EL James' runaway hit (and if you haven't, it's time to get going!), we know that the Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele story is all about the sexy time. From the Red Room of Pain to the main character's sadistic sexual fantasies, it's easy to think that the entire story line is more than a little misogynistic. But Jamie Dornan is now speaking out about how the film is actually not so anti-feminist.

In the new issue of ELLE UK, the Irish actor chats all about BDSM, misogyny, and submissives:

I can understand why people say tying a woman up and spanking her is misogynistic. But actually, more men are submissives than women. Very powerful men. It’s a far bigger scene than I imagined: in pretty much any city in the world that you could name, people want to get spanked with a paddle with studs on it.

Yowza. Well there you go.

And in case you were wondering whether or not the story was only about those NSFW scenes, Dornan is quick to set that record straight:

The love story is more important than the BDSM aspect. I mean, we are going to tell a love story, you know, it can’t just be what happens in the Red Room, that’s not a film. There’s so much more going on than that.

Hear that? This is all coming from a man who admitted that he'd been to a sex dungeon to get more knowledge and information for the role. That's dedication to acting if we've ever seen it.

And let's be real here. The movie has never been exactly PG or known for its run-of-the-mill topics. It's always been marred in controversy and criticized for its content, writing, and kinky moments. Now we just can't wait to see how it all plays out on screen.

Do you think Fifty Shades is misogynist?
