Per International Business Times, Jamie Dornan did have an active Twitter account at one point in time. However, following how rapidly he came into the spotlight after he was cast for Fifty Shades of Grey, he distanced himself from all forms of social media – not just Twitter.
During an interview with Marie Claire UK, he talked about how delighted he was to finally be married because he would no longer have to deal with people speculating over his love life. He, however, was not a big fan of his fans talking about his life off-screen through social media.
Dornan went on to discuss that it was more than just people attacking and saying nasty things about him. He claims people would also come after his family as well. Fans attacking his family was where Dornan drew the line.
“It’s one of the main reasons I left social media. They say horrific things about your loved ones…”
The last time Jamie was active on Twitter was nearly three years ago, in February of 2014, when he mourned the death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman. While the official Facebook page of Jamie Dornan is still active, it does not contain any personal updates via Jamie himself.

Jamie Dornan married his wife Amelia Warner back in 2013. The couple has two daughters together. Dornan claims having a wife and two daughters makes his job a little easier. As fans of Jamie may recall, he has also played the role of a serial killer named Paul Spector in a series called The Fall for several years now. Jamie believes his wife and children give him a nice reality to come back to after a long and hard day at work.
“The kids are a great way of breaking you out of whatever. You have no choice but to enter their world when you get home.”
Filming of the Fifty Shades franchise is officially wrapped up and Jamie is relieved to have the opportunity to spend more time with his wife and children. He claims to want to be involved in his children’s life and gets frustrated when he has to spend so much time at work.
“I want to be a very hands-on father and I have been so far with both of my children. At times, I’ve been very frustrated that I’ve had to work so soon after my wife going through that [childbirth], because you want to be there as much as you can.”
