Dornan who plays Christian Grey is gracing ELLE UK's Feb issue and in an
exclusive interview with the magazine, the Irish actor has
discussed about his role and Fifty Shades which is releasing on
In the interview, Jamie Dornan said that Fifty Shades of Grey is
not just about eroticism. "The love story is more important than
the BDSM aspect. I mean, we are going to tell a love story, you
know, it can't just be what happens in the Red Room, that's not a
film. There's so much more going on than that."
Jamie Dornan even cleared the air by saying that the upcoming
erotic movie is not anti-feminist. "I can understand why people say
tying a woman up and spanking her is misogynistic. But actually,
more men are submissive than women. Very powerful men. It's a far
bigger scene than I imagined: in pretty much any city in the world
that you could name, people want to get spanked with a paddle with
studs on it."
Jamie has been facing criticism by haters who feel that he is
playing similar roles twice. Comparing both Christian Grey and
psychopath Paul Spector in BBC crime drama The Fall, the actor
said, "They're both tying women to beds, yes; but for very
different reasons. If the motives are so different, then the action
has to be different."
"I'd be really upset if people think that I'm giving the same
performance twice," he added.
