Fifty Shades Freed is delighting audiences worldwide, but one of the stars of the film is titillating our senses thanks to his comments on being Christian Grey. That's right, Jamie Dornan is opening up about what it was like to film those dominating sex scenes. Dornan shared quite a bit with The New Paper in an interview detailing what he learned about the BDSM lifestyle and how his "research" enlightened him.

  • Jamie was a voyeur.

    In order to truly understand the relationship that Christian has with Ana, Jamie went to watch a couple who live the lifestyle. “Before the first [movie], I went to watch a dominant with his submissive, just to experience first-hand what it is like,” he said.  “It is so different for everybody, and everybody has their own approach, how they like to create that world. Some of it is quite serious and feels quite dangerous at times, and then some of it is frivolous and giggly and fun."

  • He said what he learned was that BDSM seemed like a lot of fun.

    Jamie continued, “People feel it is sadistic, but what I saw was literally the opposite. They were having so much fun and laughing a lot."

    We love this! He added, "I am an open-minded person, and if that is what floats your boat, then more power to you. It doesn't for me personally, but I think the world is fine.”  

  • The "kink advisor" on set helped a lot, too.

    Jamie called the experience "eye-opening" because he learned so much in being Christian Grey. The set also had a "kink adviser” who was a specialist on the scenes, toys, and equipment featured in the red room.

  • This may be the last we see of Christian and Ana.

    Despite Jamie's clear appreciation of his role in the Fifty Shades franchise, this is supposedly the last of it for him and Dakota. They both said they would not partake in future films. Though, we are still going to hold out hope that changes. Think about how much more Jamie would learn!
