Smooth. That could be one word to describe Jamie Dornan. He was a model. He dated celebrities. He married the ever so lovely Amelia Warner and is a doting dad of two. He plays Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades franchise. But as it turns out, Dornan has a bit of a nerdy side when he was a kid. He opened up about one very questionable thing he did when he was 15 ... and it involves gluing hair to a certain part of his body

  • Jamie created his own merkin.

    While on the Graham Norton Show, Jamie confessed that he didn't think he was developing quite like the other kids when he was 15 years old. And so when he was invited to a party, he glued a wig to his private bits in the event he got lucky. The technical term for that is a "merkin." Let's let that soak in for a moment.

  • He details how gluing anything to your private parts is a bad idea.

    Apparently Jamie was in a school play and had to wear a wig for it. The big party was after the play. He shared, “For my role, I had bits of a black wig glued to my face for a beard and I decided to keep it for the party so I would look older. I also decided to cut up the rest of the wig and glue it to my private parts just in case I got lucky. I didn't get lucky and removing the bits of wig ripped out the very small amount of natural hair I had down there. It was a physically and emotionally painful experience!"  

    Oh, Jamie!

  • He clearly rebounded well.

    Judging by this photo, and so many others we've seen of Jamie, he recovered well and is able to grow hair on all his body parts. Proof is in this beard.

  • But he still isn't without some uncool moments.

    We could go straight to this incredibly sexy snapshot of Jamie, taken from the upcoming Fifty Shades Freed, and call it perfection. But Jamie also let viewers in on another secret.

    Apparently the beach he is walking on has rocks that were painful for him to walk on. "What you can't see is that it was pebbly and I couldn't walk on it. The beach was only semi-closed and there were lots of people taking photos as I struggled up the beach. It was so not cool. They even put down a piece of carpet for me to walk on but I still struggled. In the end, I had to wear a pair of jelly sandals and no-one looks sexy in those!"  

    Still, we're in awe that he could manage to look cool even when he really wasn't.

    Maybe it was his self-made merkin experience that gets him through these awkward moments.
