In a revealing sit-down with Interview Magazine, the 50 Shades of Grey star admitted that when it comes to his body, he doesn't like what he sees. "I don't like my physique," the 32-year-old actor admitted. "Who does? I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid."
One look at the provocative new spread and it's clear that Dornan is anything but a skinny kid. The former Calvin Klein underwear model has been clearly eating his veggies since his schoolyard days. As he gets set to play the sophisticated sadist Christian Grey in next year's highly anticipated adaption of the eponymous best-selling novel, Dornan looks beefier than ever.
According to Dornan, his character is "someone who is careful to keep himself in shape, someone who spends obscene amounts of money on presenting himself."
So how did the burgeoning actor prepare himself for the role of a lifetime?
"A lot of that work was done in the gym and with costume," he told the mag. "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."
You can catch Dornan wearing the best suits on February 14, 2015, when 50 Shades of Grey slinks into theaters. (Daily News)
