Jamie Dornan Steps Out Amid 'Fifty Shades' Salary Rumors

Jamie Dornan stays serious while heading home after a session at the gym on Thursday (March 5) in London, England.

According to the Daily Star, the 32-year-old actor is set to earn $12 million for the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey sequel film.

Jamie has signed the deal and he’s thrilled, the money on offer was just too good,” a source told the site. “He’s been really worried that he will get typecast as Christian Grey and it will do his long-term career ambitions damage. So he was about to walk away and leave it all behind then bosses of the movie franchise came back with the jaw-dropping offer.”

    Wowee hed be a fool to turn that down after already doing the 1st one for a measly amount of $$

    I find it difficult to believe that they failed to secure both Jamie and Dakota for three films from the very beginning. They would have needed continuity with the actors playing the lead characters and would have locked them into the series. My guess is that there was probably some room for negotiation of the exact amount to be paid which would have been based on the success of the 1st installment. Since they have the source material they knew that this was going to potentially mean at least 3 films.

    This stupid movie had already grossed half a billion dollars. Could the 2nd and 3rd gross that much, maybe. And if the numbers run true for the next two, I would ask for more money and possibly a percentage of each final box office.

  • Hawkey

    This mediocre of an actor has the guts to demand for a salary increase!!!! I don’t even like him as Christian Grey coz his acting in the movie was so bland & looks like his having constant constipation everytime he acts ewww

  • Rose Ryan

    They probably did secure them for all three films, with some rider on it that left the salary for the 2nd and 3rd negotiable. No way that they wouldn’t have done that. There was no likelihood of him not doing the film, but you know drama sells. For the last 2 Twilight films the leads got 25 million plus back end. If Dornan got anywhere near that, it would be more money than he would have EVER made had he not gotten the lead in 50 Shades. He’ll risk a career any day for a guaranteed big payday that will set him right for the rest of his life. Money talks, nobody walks.

    He’s very SEX…Y, Yum

    12 million was definetely too much for blah too stiff actor whose acting being trashed so bad by the critics.
    What was that money valued for anyway? His acting was bad, his looks isn’t that handsome, his body is too thin and lack of six packs and he didn’t even wanna do full frontal nude scene.
    So why not just put other no name dude with better body and better face, whose willing to do full frontal for supposedly sexy movie, plus if that dude acting was better than Jamie, that movie was still selling anyway.

  • Barry McKeigan

    so, let me get this right…a movie about S&M…from a book that, basically, treats women like dirt…that the majority of people who went to see it, complained about the movie…and they’re talking ‘sequels’????? Really…only in Hollywood

  • Scarlett

    Worried about getting type cast, I’m sure he isn’t he’s just signed to a very different film, he’s got other projects already filmed, none are very Christian Grey type roles. What crap.

  • Chingpei

    Now he can afford a CIRCUMCISION !!!

  • FormerLamark

    And how much will Dakota earn? One million or less?

  • Marko Gordo

    Love him!

  • Alexa

    I liked the books but the movie was a disaster! Bored me to death!
    Jamie Dornan’s acting was miserable, not that Dakota’s was amazing, but she was slightly better than him….but with fan girls who are seeing it 3 -4 times in cinemas no wonder the movie made so much…I went because I loved the books and were curious but surely wont see the next!
    Btw going from 125k$ to 12M$…that’s a big win for Dornan and Dakota.
    And of course they would accepted the offer…. it’s not like they have any big talent and better projects! This movie is the best thing that could have happened to both them.

  • bbm

    he is so perfect with the beard

  • ama

    They’re rumors! Do you really believe everything you read on an online blogs? Jamie and Dakota said on live TV (Today Show) they are signed on for the sequel and they are waiting on the STUDIO to give them the green light. As for salary, nothing is set in stone yet so I highly doubt he is already asking for an increase, but I am sure Dakota is making much more for being so exposed in the film. I don’t understand why people are making up lies and causing more drama, this movie is for the fans of the book so GTO!

  • Beckers05

    If he is so worried about being type cast and his wife wasn’t happy then why did he do the movie in the first place. It wasn’t like he didn’t know that was in the book/script!

  • sisi south africa

    Jamie took this VERY huge risk on a movie that all hollywood hunks chickened out on. Jamie took this role when even the Charlie Hunnams of this world couldn’t take the heat. The risk paid out. 12 million times! I thought he did so well as Christian and apparently so does the studio. He wants to be a superstar and it’s happened. Rob Pattinson ( God bless him) took a risk with Edward and is now an icon in his own right. Gooo Jamieeee. ..

  • Jane.Doe

    I still find it absolutely freaking MIND BOGGLING that this movie was even made. The books are complete and utter trash – and anyone that actually thinks they portray BDSM really need to do their homework. They were nothing more than bad mommy porn – bad, pathetic, AWFUL mommy porn. If you are that desperate for something erotic to read, look online – there are THOUSANDS of stories out there a MILLION times better than this dreck. You can get your rocks off without encouraging the absolute ABUSE that occurs in these trashy novels.

  • sisi south africa

    What is this” mommy porn” business? What is that? The wording it’s self is all wrong. You call FSOG Porn and yet you think it doesn’t come close to the dirt you read on line? What about this story makes you call it “mommy porn”. Christian is a young man and so is anastasia. Both in their 20s .Ana is in her early 20s even. Would she have to be younger for you to think it was NOT “mommy porn”? Am I really missing something here?

  • teresa

    Jamie only got 250.000 for the first movie which so far has grossed over 500 million I’m glad he’s got 12 million for the next movie, but they should have known this was going to be a massive hit at the box office so this deal with both actors should have been sealed from the get go. I am delighted for him he deserves it and more. More power to you Jamie!!!

    Finally… THANKS
