He's certainly no prude, but Jamie Dornan is in favor of keeping his private parts under wraps -- literally. In a new interview with Elle, the Fifty Shades Freed actor revealed that there's a reason he didn't go full frontal (save for a partial penis cameo in the first film in 2015) in any of the films -- it just wasn't necessary.

  • When asked about a rumor that he was offered an additional $1 million to do full-frontal, the actor joked, "It was $30 million -- to show one testicle."

  • Oh, Jamie. You slay us.


  • In all seriousness though, Jamie didn't get nekkid in the flick because it just wasn't integral to the story.

    "No, that whole thing with offering more money to go nude?" Jamie said. "That didn't happen." 

    He also added that, given the right circumstance, he might. "I don't know if I said I wouldn't. You see my arse quite a lot. That doesn't really bother me. You see a lot of Dakota's tits. I would show my tits if I had them. I just thought, 'We don't need to be flashing the rest if it's not essential to the story.' We're not making porn, as much as people think we are."




  • In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel recently, Jamie also talked about the "modesty pouch" he was given on set to keep his privates private.


    "You're sort of presented with a few options and sizes. They're all skin-colored -- but, like, if you'd gotten jaundice. That color. Like an ill person," he said. "I picked one out. Everyone had left the room. As I was putting it on, I saw a little label stitched inside. It said, 'Inmate No. 3. [Thinking it'd been used], I very nearly puked. As my genitals came to a rest at the bottom of this thing, I thought, 'Someone has worn this.' I actually called the wardrobe assistant. I was like, 'Dude, what the f--k? This is secondhand?' He said, 'No, trust me.' But he lost my trust."


  • So there we have it. No full frontal from Jamie.

    Well, for Fifty Shades at least. For the right role, you never know.
