Jamie Dornan Explains Why This 'Fifty Shades' Scene Was Awful

Jamie Dornan is opening up about the “James Bond” moment his character Christian Grey has in the new Fifty Shades Freed trailer and why that scene was “awful” to shoot.

We’ve all seen the images of the 35-year-old actor going shirtless in blue shorts while walking out of the water on the beach in France, but it wasn’t as amazing to film as it is to watch.

“That was horrendous. If they just tilt the camera down, that whole moment was awful,” Jamie said on The Graham Norton Show. “We had the beach, semi-sort of closed off, but actually there were loads of people that we didn’t have control over.”

“They want me to be sexy coming out of the water. But it’s not a sand beach! It’s one of those wee pebble beaches. Literally, you cannot look cool running out of the water,” Jamie said as he demonstrated the difficulty he had walking out of the water.

    Way to twist Jamie Dornan words around. Jamie was talking having to walk on a very rocky beach in Paris and he couldn’t keep his balance and finally he had to gel sandals “which nobody looks sexy in”
    I loved your site but, to twist Jamie’s word around is a awful thing to do. Horrible. In fact Jamie said filming in France was like being on a Holiday.

  • lolo13

    I watched the interview and you could tell how fed up he is promoting fifty shades. I
    Mean he must acknowledge it put him on the map but I bet he regrets it.

  • sally

    I bet he does regret it and I sometimes feel bad for him but he knew what he was getting into.

    He’s probably going to be stereotyped for a while

  • LittlePaperStars

    Unlikely. He’s been doing The Fall at the same time as 50 Shades, and has been critically acclaimed for that, he’s also, somewhat deliberately been picking other more diverse roles since. I dont think he’d deny that these films have given him a profile and monetarily allowed him to pick and choose other projects. But he’s never been keen on promoting them and looked mortified having to talk about it sitting next to Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren.
    However his fake pubes story was bloody hilarious

  • sally

    Yeah, he does look mortified. I would be too.

    There are some many similarities between Paul (The Fall) and Christian Grey. I can’t watch any of the FSOG films. Basically the same character but Grey doesn’t kill the women.

    FSOG isn’t for everyone but I at least hope the fans are happy with the films.

  • lolo13

    I know, he is very talented and I hope his other roles speak for him in the future and not just the fifty shades movies. E.g. he is great on Anthropoid!

  • ShellBell

    They could have been okay films. Sure they were never gonna be masterpieces or get oscars but if EL had let go of the reins and let others do their job, they would have been passable. I don’t understand why she okayed directors etc when she intended to do everything herself and it’s like she deliberately wanted it to fail with the way she behaved. She might have money from it but that’s all she’s come away with and since the rumours of her ego have been confirmed by many people, I doubt many will work with her again.

    He’s really funny too but his beauty may make it hard for people to take him, ahem, seriously as a comic actor.

  • MaisyDaisy

    It doesn’t matter that no one will work with her. She was a one-trick pony who got very lucky. She has nothing else to offer.

  • sired_to_paulwesley

    Yummy…Both of them

  • Barry

    In five years, he’ll explain why the entire “50 Shades” trilogy was awful.

  • lolo13

    Lol I agree

  • sally

    Haven’t seen Anthropoid yet but thanks for the suggestion, I’ll check it out!

  • lolo13

    It’s a great move as well! with a great cast including Cillian Murphy, another irish talent 👍🏼

  • ShellBell

    You never know, she have a Charmed or Buffy fan fic she did and turn it into a novel this time lol. She has the arrogance to try it as well.
