E.L. James readers hoping to get a peek at Jamie Dornan's package in next year's Fifty Shades of Grey are set to be sorely disappointed. The Northern Irish actor has declared that Christian Grey won't be flashing the full monty. He even has it in writing.
"There were contracts in place that said that viewers wouldn’t be seeing my, um…todger,'" he revealed in a new interview with The Observer. When asked about frequent flasher Ewan McGregor, he laughed, quipping that "maybe Ewan has a more impressive girth.” If you're trying to turn us on, Mr. Grey, it's not working.
The self-described feminist added that he's not particularly turned on by the film's kinky scenes.
"Anyone who thinks actors get turned on doing sex scenes in films is mistaken," Dornan said. "There are dozens of hairy men standing around, moving cables and lighting equipment. That’s not sexy unless you’re into being watched, which I’m not.”
Too late for that, dearie. Full-frontal or not, you've got about 100 million readers chomping at the bit for the film's February release. Like E.L. James, though, they'll just have to use their imagination. (Observer)
