Jamie Dornan Talks about Preparations for His Christian Grey Role

5b6b5c8894e292eaeb52ee0233055c45

Jamie Dornan, who now is considered to be one of the sexiest men in Hollywood talks about his preparations for the ever-moody but sexy lead character Christian Trevelyan Grey in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey penned by E.L. James and directed by Sam Taylor Johnson. The model turned actor, who’s Christian Grey continues to be the talk of the town since he was signed for “Fifty Shades” movie role, apparently has to go to the gym and does lot of preparation for his role.

Dornan revealed big things while talking to interview magazine, including what he and Sam- Taylor Johnson (director of the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey”) talked about as part of his preparations for his role. “I think there was so much more to Christian that we covered-someone who is careful to keep himself in shape, someone who spends obscene amounts of money on presenting himself,” Jamie Dornan tells the publication. “A lot of that work was done in the gym and with costume,” the actor explains.Jamie said that in addition to not liking the way his body looks, he had to develop some confidence about one more thing when it came to playing Christian Grey, he had to learn how to wear a suit. “We didn’t talk about particulars of the way he would move. But I’m quite awkward in a suit because I don’t have an opportunity to wear a suit very often, and this is a guy who lives in a suit—the best suit. That has to have an effect. But when you end up in a suit for 80 percent of the filming process, you become pretty comfortable with it.”

The Fifty Shades star working opposite Dakota Johnson, who plays the role of Christian Grey’s love interest Anastasia Steele in the highly anticipated raunchy movie, has revealed that he is happy to get a chance to play Christian Grey. But after all the raves, Dornan has admitted that he still doubts about the proportions of his body. The 32-year-old actor has been an underwear model for Calvin Klein, but apparently his childhood still haunts him to do it, so Dornan’s insecurity about his body doesn’t really change

Jamie Dornan told the magazine “I don’t like my physique,” “Who does? I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid.” Dornan once told The Guardian Magazine that it was his modeling career that has gotten him through the entertainment industry, saying that he was “lucky” he was getting paid to do it, so Dornan’s insecurity about his body doesn’t really change a thing about the way fans look at him. But take note that it was not only his body that is giving him the recognition.

Fifty Shades Director Sam Taylor-Wood Says Hubby Aaron Johnson Joins ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Sam Taylor Johnson

Sam Taylor-Johnson has revealed that she has cast husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. When the 47-year-old was confirmed to be directing the big screen adaptation of E. L James hit erotic novel, it immediately sparked speculation that her hunky husband Aaron Taylor, 23 would star in the lead role of Christian Grey. But the Godzilla star quickly ruled himself out of the rumor, insisting he was too young to play the handsome billionaire with a taste for bondage.

Sam Taylor-Johnson with Aron

 

Sam Taylor Johnson is currently busy in the post production stage of her hugely anticipated movie, which is due to hit cinemas on 13th February 2015 just before Valentine’s Day. So, far aside from some teasing tidbits from Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson and the rest of the cast, Sam and her team have kept resolutely quite about the movie.

article-2625652-1DC15AEF00000578-104_634x909

At this week’s premiere for husband Aaron’s new movie Godzilla though, Sam did let slip some details, including the hugely exciting news that Aaron, who she directed him in 2009 John Lennon biopic “Nowhere Boy” does appear in her film in another role. Sam was asked by Access Hollywood on the red carpet at the premiere of Godzilla if she had found a way for her 23-year-old hubby to be in the film. “Actually, I have,” Sam said with a laugh after a bit of hesitation. Unfortunately the director wouldn’t say anymore on exactly how big a part Aaron has or what his involvement is exactly. The Fall’s Jamie Dornan will be playing Christian Grey in the film, opposite Dakota Johnson – daughter of Melanie Griffiths and Don Johnson – as his lover Anastasia Steele.

Sam Taylor and Aaron Taylor

Sam Taylor opted for tight Black leather dress at the premiere on Godzilla in London on Sunday evening. Making sure it took centre stage she wore her blonde hair off her face and accessorized simply with a pair of stilettos and a small clutch bag. Aaron, who plays US Navy Lieutenant Ford Brody, looked his usual dashing self as he wore a crisp white shirt, left unbuttoned and a sharp suit.

Aaron Taylor was seen on set of Fifty Shades of Grey with his wife during shooting in Vancouver earlier this year though, making it easy for the star to make a cameo appearance. The filmmaker also spilled that the post productions work on Fifty Shades is “going good. I’m editing it right now, so I’m deep in the thick of it.” When asked if the movie has turned out like she wanted, 47-year-old Sam added: “Absolutely. Yeah. I’m excited.”Aaron was quick to remind his wife not to reveal all the secrets though! “Hush, hush. Don’t give anything away yet,” the actor joked.

‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Movie Shoots Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson In North Vancouver

 Dakota Johnson in jogging dress

When you are Christian Grey’s partner, doesn’t matter even if you are submissive, looking good is almost always part of the deal. And if there is someone who is taking it very seriously is Dakota Johnson, who plays the role of Christian Grey’s submissive partner, Anastasia Steele, in the movie version of Erica James’ novel Fifty Shades of Grey. We already know that both she and director Sam-Taylor Johnson are fans of raw juices, but in some new pictures which have surfaced the 24 year old actress was spotted in her jogging gear with two ponytails and Nike kicks jogging in North Vancouver.

Jamie Dornan in jogging dress

But if you have seen that pic too; don’t make the wrong assumption that it was Dakota Johnson you saw. In fact the brunette, petite beauty you saw was actually Anastasia Steele jogging on the streets. But when it comes to being a fitness freak, Dakota aka Ana has some serious company. To give her company, there is no one else but Christian Grey. A few months back, a new set of pictures surfaced which showed Grey jogging too, in his gray jogging gear. And when he jogged looking at the camera with that devilish glint in his eyes, it was enough to make some girls and women too, go weak in their knees. In the scene which Dakota Johnson jogs, she can be seen wearing a blue hoodie and stretch pants in gray and the camera followed the love interest of dark and brooding millionaire running laps in Lower Lonsdale in North Vancouver.

She was also spotted stretching and hydrating herself on the corner of the Bank of Montreal. Now, it is no secret why the lead actors of this racy movie need to be in shape. If you have read the novel, you will know there is enough steamy action between the sheets and when this translates from the pages of the novel to the screen, it goes beyond the realm of imagination and there are flesh and blood actors that assume the role of the lead characters.In this case, the super hot Irish actor Jamie Dornan wins most of our votes in the with-clothes-on department, but when it comes to donning his natal dress, he wants to ensure that his female fans can moan their pleasure.

Dakota Johnson

Similarly, Ana is also a coveted role to play, and especially for a 24 year old, whose previous roles have not exactly been biggies, this movie can be the perfect re-launch pad. The daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson has a lot to look forward to. Not to pour water on your wishes, but the producers of the adaptation have actually said that the movie version might not be as explicit as the novel.

Jamie

Although earlier, it was decided that two versions of the movie would be released one more explicit than the other with an NC-17 rating, but now it seems we will have to be sufficed with just the version that’s ready for release.

50 Shades Movie Star Dakota Johnson now in New Romantic Comedy Date and Switch

The saying goes that practice makes a man perfect, but in Dakota Johnson’s case we have to say that practice makes a woman perfect. Now that Dakota has geared up to make her lark as a leading lady, it seems only natural that she will get better with more practice. And to get that much needed practice, she will be seen next in the romantic comedy movie “Date and Switch”, and given that the film releases this Valentine’s Day, which is exactly a year before her major release 50 Shades Movie, which releases on the 13th of February 2015, we are bound to ask the question, is Valentine’s Day her favorite time of the year?

Dakota Johnson  as Anastasia Steele new Pictures CollectionDoesn’t matter what she will dish out for us next Valentine’s Day, this year seems promising enough with her release, which again finds her balancing confused feelings, some her own and some her ex-boyfriend’s who plans to lose his virginity before senior prom and makes a pact about this with his childhood friend. The only problem is that, he is gay. Don’t get us wrong when we say that being gay is the problem. The problem is that, he is a guy, who used to hate girls (Dakota in question) and now announces that he is gay and hence cannot participate in the said pact and lose his virginity by senior prom (for he does not have a boyfriend).

Dakota Johnson Stars in new Romantic Comedy Date and Switch

Most of the film then talks about and moves on the quest for the gay dude for Dakota’s ex-boyfriend, Matty, while in the whole process, Dakota and Michael (the straight childhood friend) getting closer to each other. Even if the plot sounds like one of those merry-go-around relationship rom-coms, we still suggest you watch it, so that you can get a fair idea of the kind of practice (smooching included) she is getting. We all know that Dakota’s big break is starring in the movie 50 Shades of Grey Movie, and before she was a familiar face as the leading lady she now is, she used to be on television more often, in the series “Ben and Kate”.

2d331a02f1fd741dc4ed0a00b4fc81a6

But the big screen did not completely elude her, for she has also appeared in minor roles in movies such as “The Five Year Engagement” and “The Social Network”. But playing the role of Anastasia Steele in the movie adaptation of the novel of the same name by E.L. James is her biggest role till date and she has admitted recently in an interview given to a prominent magazine that she does not have a problem doing anything and also that she has no shame.

Dakota Johnson in new Event show

The question of shame, of course, arises because we all know what the content of the film adaptation of Fifty Shades” is. When it comes to adapting an novel, what more can you expect other than steamy, sensual and racy scenes? But the Fifty Shades franchise does not mean to have only skin show as its content, it also plays around with the primary character of the novel, Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele and tries to establish a romance and a love story there.
