​Jamie Dornan Prepares for '50 Shades' Frenzy With Robert Pattinson's Help

Awww. In a new interview with Variety, Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan revealed who he went to for advice before shooting the year's most highly anticipated flick. Any guesses? Anyone? No? Jamie went to none other than his pal, Robert Pattinson. It's not that the Twilight star has experience with nudity and bondage and S&M (on screen, at least?), but nobody knows what it's like to suddenly be thrust into the limelight quite like Pattinson. "I’ve been around Rob long enough to see what it’s been like for him," Dornan said. "I don’t know if it’s been a benefit to witness that. Whatever that is." He then added, with a dose of modesty, "By the way, it’s not the same thing. We’re not the Twilight franchise. We’re a different thing. Whatever my situation is, it’s going to be different from Rob’s. They are incomparable."

Oh, you know, just some hot dudes hanging out with each other, giving one another advice. Nothin' to see here. 


In some ways, it's hugely beneficial to Dornan to have someone like Pattinson in his inner circle -- someone who went from relative obscurity to insane, insane popularity pretty much overnight. But in other ways, it also works against him. Whether Dornan admits it or not, he probably has preconceived notions of what it's going to be like for him after the movie opens -- and odds are, the reality of whatever happens will be much different from what he expects.

Dornan definitely seems like a pretty grounded guy -- as does Rob -- so it would be pretty surprising if the fame went to his head and completely changed him. (That didn't seem to happen to Rob, after all.) But you never know what's going to happen. Hopefully, his Twilight buddy will be there to put him in check, should he lose touch with reality. 

Do you think fame will get to Jamie Dornan's head?
