Jamie Dornan is a busy man. Not only did he wrap all the filming for Fifty Shades franchise this summer, but he also released two new movies. In between saying goodbye to his Fifty Shades co-star Dakota Johnson and giving interviews which reveal his personal life with wife Amelia Warner and his baby daughters, he must not have had time to himself very much!
To promote Anthropoid and The 9th Life of Louis Drax, Jamie Dornan has been giving a lot of interviews, which got the super private actor out of his shell. He revealed secrets about himself pretty readily, showing that he has multiple talents.
When an interviewer from Entertainment Tonight asked him if he had any other talents beside modeling and singing, he said, “I’m a good cook. Where I come from, we do a Sunday roast: Potatoes and roast beef, chicken or lamb with all the trimmings — that would be my specialty.”
Jamie Dornan doing the Sunday roast with Amelia Warner and his baby girls is certainly a picture perfect image of his budding family!
Of course, the interviewer didn’t miss the opportunity to ask if he will be doing full-frontal in Fifty Shades sequels.
“The truth is that I don’t know the answer to that,” the Irish actor answered coyly. “You’ll have to wait and see.”
When Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson started filming the sequels for Fifty Shades of Grey, the biggest question on all the fans’ minds was whether he will reveal everything on screen. After the lackluster reviews from the first movie, the actors most likely felt the pressure to perform better.
Fifty Shades of Grey scored measly 25% on Rotten Tomatoes with critics writing, “Who would have imagined that a movie about sex could be so boring?” and “I wish it had either been much better or much worse.”
But both Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson have been admitting that the filming experience has been better this time around, hinting that their chemistry will be through the roof in the sequels of Fifty Shades.
“I felt more comfortable the second time around,” Jamie said to Entertainment Tonight. “There was a lot of pressure the first time. I think when you’re making the first film of any franchise there is a lot of pressure in terms of setting a tone and the way it’s shot and the way it’s played and finding your feet with it.”
With two baby girls around the house, Jamie Dornan probably does not have much time these days to think about the scenes he shot with Dakota Johnson.
“We’ve got two little girls now, so it’s pretty insane… One of my best friends said that one is a pet, two is a zoo,” Fifty Shades actor said to PopSugar.
“It’s been a big adjustment and it’s definitely harder and you get less time to yourself, but human beings are very good at adaptation,” he added. You have to just go with it and accept less sleep and accept less time in your hands and accept less reading of books and washing and all the usual things you do in a day.”
In most of the interviews, the father of two does not reveal any details about his wife Amelia Warner, but that doesn’t mean that he is not making time for her. She accompanied him to Anthropoid premiere in the UK, showing that they are most comfortable with each other by their sides.
In fact, his wife Amelia Warner followed him to Canada and France for over three months when he had to shoot the two sequels of Fifty Shades of Grey back to back. That just shows how much Jamie and Amelia are committed in keeping their family together.
