While most spouses don't love it when their partner brings work home with them, for this actor, it actually seems to be spicing things up a bit. Fifty Shades star Eric Johnson revealed that his wife is a big fan of the erotic trilogy. Lucky him! 


Portraying the creepy Jack Hyde, who has an unhealthy obsession with the lovely Ana Steele and her love life, is something you'd think would be turn-off -- fortunately, though, that's not the case. 

But the 37-year-old Canadian actor was a little put off by his character. He told People, "This one was weird for me. I've played bad guys and done horrible violent things, but it was something about the violence towards women that was really gross. It’s messed up! At the end of the day I felt so gross about myself. Like, 'Ugh, I can't believe I said and did all those things!'"

Still, it sounds like Johnson knew exactly what he was getting into with Fifty Shades thanks to his wife, writer-producer Adria Budd Johnson, who read the trilogy. 

"It's all about indulging those fantasies for an hour or two," Johnson told People. Wow, things must get pretty hot in that household!

We're just speculating, but maybe it's fun for his wife to see him break out of that nice guy role he does so well on the Hallmark channel. Who doesn't have a thing for the "bad boy" every once in a while, right?

But just how dark will Hyde get in the third film, Fifty Shades Freed? Johnson dishes: 

"Jack Hyde is a little unraveled now. You can expect a very obsessed man who will stop at nothing to exact his revenge on Christian Grey and you'll find out why he's so obsessed with Christian and Ana. There's a history -- it's again pasts coming back to haunt people," he told People

It's going to be tough for fans to wait another year (ack!) to see the next movie hit the big screen! In the meantime, we're glad to hear life isn't imitating art in his home life -- or at least, not in a bad way. LOL.
