Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are ready to be done with Fifty Shades of Grey rumors, but it looks like their loyal fans won’t let them go! Throughout the filming of the erotic movie, Jamie and Dakota faced a series of dating rumors, despite the fact that he was married to Amelia Warner, and it looks like those kinds of rumors will continue to circulate until all three of Fifty Shades movies are released.
The latest rumor about Jamie Dornan is that there were plans to replace him with Ian Somerhalder in the coming franchise movies. But the Irish actor was quick to dismiss it, saying that it is basically impossible.
“Jamie Dornan joked about the reports that The Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder will be replacing him as Christian Grey in the 50 Shades of Grey franchise during an interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live,” reports Hello! Magazine.
“The 34-year-old actor revealed it would be an ‘expensive mistake,’ joking that ‘That would be really hard for them to do, considering we shot both of the movies.’”
In fact, the sooner Fifty Shades of Grey movies are released, the sooner Jamie Dornan can return to normal life as a serious film actor and husband to Amelia Warner. Immediately wrapping the filming for the sequels, he jumped into promoting Anthropoid, a new movie about World War II, and began to immerse himself in the third season of his TV show, The Fall.
The reviews for the Fall has not been great, but at least that is taking one more step away from Fifty Shades of Grey movies!
“Jamie Dornan previously told HuffPostUK that when writer Alan Cubitt told him where his character’s storyline would be going, he couldn’t believe it,” reports Huffington Post. “Sure enough, it must surely have taken Cubitt’s wildest imagination to come up with this scenario – a submissive suspect in custody, only too willing to cooperate, but seemingly with no knowledge of his crimes, or his victims, or even Stella Gibson, the woman who’s been pursuing him tirelessly through two previous series.”
On the other hand, his co-star Dakota Johnson has been enjoying a relatively quiet summer, taking time off film sets and diving into indie movies that will help her gain reputation as a serious movie actress. She even got together with her mother and grandmother to show that she has the lineage to become a very successful film star.
For Vanity Fair, Dakota Johnson, Melanie Griffith and Tippi Hedren got together to share their vision as three generation of Hollywood women.
“The three generations just made me think about Mom, born in 1930, and me, in the 50s, and Dakota, in the 80s,” Melanie said according to Vanity Fair. “The progression of life is really beautiful.”
Tippi Hedren also mentioned that acting is the last thing that they talk about.
“No, we never even talk about it,” Tippi said. “Isn’t that interesting?”
They even began to ponder about what it would be like to appear in one movie all together.
“We could all be the whole life of a woman,” Melanie said.
When she is not hanging out with her family, Dakota is rubbing shoulders with her famous peers like Cara Delevingne and Taylor Swift. Her friends made it clear that they celebrated Dakota turning 27 together on Instagram
But that doesn’t mean that Fifty Shades actress is keeping her Instagram active. As a matter of fact, this summer, she took care to delete all her pictures from her account, leaving one picture from years ago behind to not close it completely.
While no one is completely sure why she did this, as she used Instagram to document her personal life, it looks like a certain shift is happening in her life, moving from early to late twenties. She also just put a full stop on one of her off-and-on relationships with Matthew Hitt, so that also could have been a deciding factor in her limiting her social media accounts.
Her ex-boyfriend, on the other hand, is enjoying all the features that Instagram has to offer. Check out his latest picture!
