Robert Pattinson Talks Jamie Dornan & 'Fifty Shades of Grey'

Robert Pattinson is opening up about the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise.

The 28-year-old actor talked with Reuters about the book and film, which stemmed from Twilight fan fiction.

“It’s kind of weird and also I’ve known Jamie [Dornan] for about 10 years,” Rob said. “I haven’t actually read the book but I think it must be very, very different. I don’t see how it can work if it’s not different.”

He added, “It’s amazing; it’s that fan base. There’s some kind of profound connection that a bunch of people have to it and I’ve never figured out quite what it is.”

    Rob is my Fifty. Dornan is a model not an actor and definetelly zero charisma (Yes, he is handsome but…).

    Well, the critics hated the film but I’m also interested in opening number. So let wait and see.

    I’m so glad someone got him to dress up and quit looking like a homeless person tagging after his girlfriend. Maybe he should take his career more seriously. I’m glad to NOT hear something about his personal life with FKA Twig.

    I saw the movie and wasn’t impressed. I think Rob was right. They took inspiration from the Twilight movies, even to the point where they used some of the same phrases. I recognized them and felt they were thrown into the movie because they worked in the Twilight movie. All of the Twilight movies were built on the chemistry between Kristen and Robert and it worked. It was the anticipation culminating into the last movie. 50 Shades was sexually blatant, the chemistry was missing and it was as though the actors were just walking through they’re performances. If I had to choose 50 over Twilight….I’d take the vampire anytime.

    Jamie quit 50 shades. Evidently he will not be doing any sequel as his wife said no way. I hope Rob doesn’t consider it because the storyline is weak. Although an interesting idea to put Rob and Kristen in the movie. I don’t think it would be worthy of either one of them. They’ve both done better movies than that one.
    Kristen is on a role with the Cesar’ award and what looks like some really good movies. She hasn’t dated anyone since Rob and is putting all her effort into her work. Rob, who got sidetracked with FKA Twigs, said he planned on working more productively in 2015 and he seems to be working very hard. His is a little different and more demanding situation with a girlfriend in England.
    They both could have done some really good things together. It’s too bad it didn’t work out. Maybe they should have fought harder to stay together, but it takes the bigger person to initiate putting it back together and they’re two determined people with great chemistry that you could see in every video, or interview. I hope they save them to remind them of what could have been I guess. Then at 50 they can say….I wish I had done things differently. :-) Good luck to both of them.
