Jamie Dornan is finally breaking his silence about going nude on film.
The Fifty Shades Darker star is rumored to have gone full frontal in the upcoming erotic drama and admitted that women are often unfairly asked to perform nude in roles.
According to Huffington Post, the actor believes that women aren’t alone in feeling objectified in the industry.
Dornan is currently starring in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and admitted that he often feels like an object in front of the camera.
“I feel very subjective a lot of the time at work. So I wouldn’t say I’m relatively not objectified in the workplace. I am. It’s not just the women, but men too,” Dornan explained.
Although Dornan feels like men are sometimes unjustly treated, he also realizes that women deal with the same experience on a regular basis.
“I understand why women have an issue with that. I know it’s something that a lot of people have opinions on,” Dornan shared.
Despite the sexual exploitation of women in the movie industry, Dornan is baffled why it doesn’t happen as often to men.
“But there’s plenty of male genitalia on the show. Orlando Bloom did it today without even needing to. But I understand why,” Dornan said. “There’s more of an active taste for women to take their clothes off and be seen as a sex object. That can be gratuitous and I don’t agree with that.”
For fans of the hit BDSM films, the biggest question remaining is whether or not Dornan went full frontal in Fifty Shades Darker.
According to Breaking News, Dornan refused to give a direct answer to the question and decided to remain coy about bearing it all.
“I can’t even remember. It was so long ago. Two weeks ago we finished,” he stated.
When asked about performing the sex scenes for Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, Dornan revealed how they were the most difficult part of his role.
“Sex scenes are hard because you’re simulating sex, and that’s a very strange way to spend the day,” he admitted.
According to Entertainment, Dornan also discussed not having to do sex scenes for his upcoming war film, Anthropoid.
“It’s physically challenging to do a movie like Anthropoid. It was a grueling shoot. It was very long days and it was hot,” Dornan recalled. “It was the middle of the summer in Prague. We ran around with guns and wore a lot of clothes. It’s part of the job, but that takes its toll. This was the one time I wish I wasn’t wearing so many clothes.”
Unfortunately, it still is unclear if Dornan will appear nude in the upcoming sequel.
Considering Dornan’s recent comments on issues of sex in Hollywood, it doesn’t sound like Dornan is comfortable going nude in movies.
Of course, Dornan isn’t the first actor to open up about being sexualized on film.
Game of Thrones star Kit Harington broached the topic earlier this year, remarking that there is a clear double standard with men in Hollywood.
At the same time, Ryan Gosling also spoke on the issue and believes that men in Hollywood are only starting to pay their dues.
“It’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick,” he stated. “I grew up with women so I’ve always been aware of it.”
Unless more information is revealed, fans will likely have to wait until Fifty Shades Darker hits theaters to find out about Dornan’s full frontal cameo.
Fifty Shades Darker is scheduled to open in theaters on Feb. 10, 2017. The third and final film in the franchise, Fifty Shades Freed, will premiere a year later.
