Jamie Dornan Admits 'Tying Up Women' For Seven Months Straight

Jamie Dornan shows off his muscles in a white tee for a feature in Elle magazine’s February 2015 issue, which features Lena Dunham on the cover!

Here’s what the 32-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On the book “Fifty Shades of Grey”: “I wonder what it is about this set of books that has, excuse my pun, penetrated the global market. What is it that’s just so on the pulse of what women want? I think a lot of people try to undermine the whole thing. But it’s hard to undermine something that’s so successful. Mass appreciation doesn’t always equate to something good. Think of Hitler! But I think, in this case, it must. It simply must. There’s got to be merit in it if so many people agree.”

On his character Christian Grey: “The other day, this woman came up and started shouting at me, ‘Matt Bomer‘s the real Christian Grey.’ And I was like, um, okay. I mean, even if you cast Matt Bomer, or Alexander Skarsgård, or Charlie Hunnam, or any of those other guys—we’d all just be doing our best, you know? Christian Grey—he isn’t a real person. He’s a superhero—a myth. He’s like Bigfoot! He’s unbelievable. He’s unattainable. There’s no actor in the world who could live up to that.”

On making use of his teenage stint as a competitive sailor in acting: “Knots. I can do a few. I don’t know if you’ve seen The Fall, but I tie up women a lot. This year, I had maybe a week off between wrapping Fifty Shades and starting the second season of The Fall. So it was like seven months straight of tying up women. I think I’d like to do a comedy next.”

    He needs to stop talking about this movie. Can’t they write him some good promotional material?

    He surely doesn’t sugar coat it and it’s good. He’s right! And who ever that woman was should check back to reality and get a grip.

    I still think Alexander Skarsgard should have played Christian Grey, but he turned the role down.
