Jamie Dornan won’t be showing off his man parts in the new Fifty Shades Of Grey film. The actor recently revealed that there won’t be any full frontal nudity in the film, something that many wondered about given the erotic nature of the novels. According to Gossip Cop, Dornan, who plays Christian Grey, revealed that he had a contract in place before he signed on to do the film that guaranteed his penis wouldn’t make it on camera.
“You want to appeal to as wide an audience as possible without grossing them out. You don’t want to make something gratuitous, and ugly, and graphic. There were contracts in place that said that viewers wouldn’t be seeing my, um… todger. Yeah, my todger.”
Recently, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) were forced to reshoot some of their scenes for the film, sources saying that the two were “lacking chemistry.” While a lot of people didn’t expect the film to cast these two actors, production was determined to make it work, especially after Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the film. Fans of the novels are a bit skeptical for the film’s release because they are worried that Dornan and Johnson aren’t going to really bring Christian and Ana to life.
According to Perez Hilton, sources say that it was Johnson who wasn’t giving it 100 percent and that she wasn’t “sexy enough.” Obviously, this is her first time doing a film like this, and everything needs to be just right in order for this film to work, so reshoots aren’t that surprising.
“Dakota isn’t coming off sexy enough. [Anastasia Steele] needs to be naive, not a dishrag,” said a source.
Another source said that Universal wants everything to be “perfect” for this film so that the door for sequels is open. However, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, Dornan recently said that he was “sick” of getting naked on camera… does this mean that he isn’t interested in doing more than one Fifty Shades film?
Something else that Jamie Dornan probably doesn’t like about Christian Grey is that he’s clean-shaven. In a recent interview with the Guardian, Dornan revealed that he likes having a beard because it gives him confidence in many ways.
“I feel uncomfortable without it. I find myself moving differently. I don’t like myself without a beard.”
The Once Upon a Time star knows he has big shoes to fill, and he has done the best he could to take on Mr. Grey. Dornan knows that he isn’t going to please millions of people, but he did his best.
“I am never going to please all 100 million people who read the book. I’ll be lucky if half that number are happy with me playing Christian Grey. I know there are campaigns of hate against me already.”
