Everyone may be excited to see “Fifty Shades of Grey…” everyone except Jamie Dornan’s wife, that is. In the UK premiere of the film, the actor revealed that his wife has no plans on seeing him do S&M scenes with another woman.
In an interview with London Evening Standard, Dornan shared that his wife, Amelia Warner, has yet to see the film.
“She hasn’t seen the film and I don’t think she will, to be honest. I’d understand if she didn’t want to,” Dornan told London Evening Standard.
That is not surprising, especially since Dornan plays a sex-obsessed character, Christian Grey, who has a fascination with the S&M lifestyle. In the movie, we could see Dornan spank his co-star Dakota Johnson, who plays his leading lady Anastasia Steele.
The actor added that his wife was all about supporting his career but watching him with another woman was a little uncomfortable for his wife. He shared that sometimes he himself gets uncomfortable about seeing his naked body on screen.
Apart from his wife, Dornan revealed that there were also a few scenes that he wouldn’t want his friends and relatives to see. However, he adds that those scenes were a small sacrifice in portraying the role of Christian Grey.
“Fifty Shades of Grey” may be one of the much-awaited film of 2015, but its S&M theme might have not sit well with many. According to Telegraph, anti-domestic violence protestors had scattered leaflets of “Christian Grey is a rapist” at the premiere.
One protester claimed that although the erotic movie does not promote the S&M lifestyle, it would certainly “normalize” an abusive relationship.
“Especially for young people who maybe haven’t had relationships before or are entering first time sexual relationships, these books could influence the way that they see relationships being what they think is normal,” he added.
