Jamie Dornan Reportedly Used a Body Double in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Say it ain't so! Now, we know that actors using a body double for nude scenes is just Hollywood 101, but did it ever occur to anyone that Jamie Dornan would use one in Fifty Shades of Grey?

Apparently not every bit of Christian Grey is played by the Irish hunk, as it's recently been revealed that he used a body double during filming. Not only that -- the double doesn't even want the gig on his résumé!

It turns out that for at least part of the film, our favorite fictional millionaire CEO with a penchant for BDSM was played by Canadian model and actor Peter James Gray.

The fledgling actor reportedly didn't want credit for the role, because he was "too ashamed to be associated with the film." His IMDb credits don't even list his part as "Christian Grey's Butt," or whatever it would be listed as. 

Gray is just breaking into the industry, so I get why he wouldn't want a nude part to define his career thus far. His spokesman said, "He's now pursuing a serious acting career so I'd prefer to keep the emphasis on that."

Then again, he did appear in the slasher flick Girl House, which sounds totally serious and not embarrassing at all. He was also in The Age of Adaline with Blake Lively, which obviously is more credit worthy, so at least he has one "serious" part to boast about.

But seriously, I think the craziest part about this is that Jamie Dornan even used a body double at all. The dude used to be a Calvin Klein underwear model, and he's still hot as all get-out. Why bother having a stand-in?

Are you surprised that Jamie Dornan used a body double while filming Fifty Shades of Grey?
