Jamie Dornan Probably Won't Take a Job Like 'Fifty Shades' Ever Again

Jamie Dornan is grateful for everything that Fifty Shades of Grey brought him and has nothing but positive things to say about the franchise, though he doesn’t think he’ll do a similar project in the future.

In a new interview with Vulture, the 36-year-old actor was asked if he sees himself entering a new phase of his career now that the Fifty Shades franchise has ended.

“I don’t see it like that, no,” Jamie replied. “They’re perceived the way they’re perceived. Critically, that’s not very favorably. But they made a lot of money, and as studio pictures go, they’re pretty unique. To speak for myself, and I’ll speak for Dakota as well, it’s another job on another set.”

“I probably won’t ever take a job with this much attention and scrutiny and public opinion directed at it again. And that’s fine! From a practical point of view, you just move on to the next and keep your head down,” Jamie added. “But listen, it’s given us so much. The work that I’ve been doing has been a million miles from that, and not even by choice. You just keep plugging away, doing good work, and trying to better yourself.”

Jamie had a lot of positive things to say about Fifty Shades.

“It was mad, a mad thing to be involved in. It was so big in its scale and the reception, and it remains beloved to many people,” Jamie said. “As a life experience, I’m glad I could go through it. Though now, it almost feels like it didn’t happen? It’s that thing where you film it, maybe do some reshoots, and then you’re on your way. For the fans, it’s all-encompassing, spending all your time waiting for the next book or the next movie. Dakota and I kept coming in and out of it, going to promote it and do press and reimmerse yourself in the hysteria. And then you’re away from it again! It was a strange time, but without that, I don’t get to do Anthropoid, I don’t get to do A Private War, you get the idea.”
