Jamie Dornan Reveals What He Sings In The Shower & It's Not What You'd Expect

Jamie Dornan is opening up about his go-to song to sing in the shower and it’s not what you’d expect.

The 38-year-old actor appeared on The Drew Barrymore Show with his Barb & Star co-stars Kristin Wiig and Annie Mumolo, when during the break, Drew asked him about the songs he sings in the shower.

“Oh God, oh, no, no, no, don’t say it,” Jamie tried to deflect, but admitted that he gets “very musical.”

He then revealed that his is “Sand, Stephen Sondheim…It’s sad, I like to start my day with total sadness and build from there.”

In an interview with Slate, director Karen Han opened up about being really impressed with Jamie‘s singing voice and confirmed that yes, it is him singing in the movie.

“He’s got a pretty incredible voice, which I think, when we wrote it and cast it, I didn’t even know. I figured, ‘Oh, we’ll probably have someone else sing,’” she shared. “I didn’t know he had a wonderful voice.”

“But we started talking more and more, and he was in a band in high school, and it was like, ‘Oh, he can really pull this off.’”

If you didn’t see, Jamie recently opened up about that shirt ripping scene in the movie too.

Jamie Dornan Says The Shirt Ripping Scene in 'Barb & Star' Isn't That Easy To Do

Jamie Dornan is opening up about that shirt ripping scene in his new movie, Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar, and revealed that it wasn’t as easy as it looked.

The 38-year-old actor told Vulture that “the embarrassing thing was half the time I couldn’t even rip it!”

Jamie added that he had “asked the costumer to cut it at the top so it would be easier to rip it, but I guess they didn’t cut the bottom, so for the first take I was really confident at the beginning, and then I got like a second in and got stuck at the bottom, so I was sort trying to hop out of it in a pathetic way.”

“But then we did two or three more takes where they cut the bottom so I could actually make it work.”

Jamie stars as Edgar Paget in the film, opposite Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo.

If you missed it, Kristen actually used the movie to reveal her twin babies names!

Jamie Dornan Talks 'Barb & Star' Sequel Possibility & How Many Shirts He Ripped Off

Jamie Dornan is opening up about his role in the critically praised comedy Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar and if he’d be open to doing a sequel.

The 38-year-old actor chatted with Variety about getting to show off his comedic chops in the movie and that big musical number.

If you’ve seen the movie, which is available now on VOD, you know that Jamie rips his shirt off at one point. See it happen in the GIF below.

“We did that just two, maybe three times. And the first time it didn’t rip it all,” Jamie said. “I’m sure that footage will find its way onto some sort of blooper reel. So we had to like, cut it so I could rip it. Listen, even Hulk Hogan apparently cuts it at the top. So if Hulk Hogan needs help with ripping a shirt off, I definitely need help. I don’t even think I get ever got it off of the bottom.”

Jamie also discussed the possibility of a sequel.

“That’s a Mumolo/Wiig question,” he said, referring to the film’s writers and stars Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig. “I was hopeful that they weren’t gonna just turn and kill Edgar at some point towards the end. Because I was like, if this hits and people like it, there’s an appetite… I think they’ve definitely knocked around a few titles, let’s put it that way. We all had a bit of fun one day, coming up with destinations for for them to go on after. So listen, if they want to go again, and they want me to be involved, it would be the easiest yes of my life.”

Is Jamie Dornan Really Singing & Dancing in 'Barb & Star'? Director Speaks Out!

Jamie Dornan has a big musical moment in the new movie Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar and fans might be wondering if that’s actually him doing the singing and dancing on screen.

The movie’s director Josh Greenbaum opened up to Slate about working with Jamie and how much of that scene needed a double.

“It’s almost all him other than when we make it obvious that it’s not. All the singing is him. He’s got a pretty incredible voice, which I think, when we wrote it and cast it, I didn’t even know. I figured, ‘Oh, we’ll probably have someone else sing.’ I didn’t know he had a wonderful voice,” Josh said. “But we started talking more and more, and he was in a band in high school, and it was like, ‘Oh, he can really pull this off.’”

Josh added, “And then the dancing, obviously he’s fully committed. There are a couple of sequences, like when he’s spinning like a baby ballerina and digging himself into the sand, that are obviously doubled. Again, I hope it comes across as clear that part of the joke is it’s clearly not him, but if so, I’m sorry for ruining it for people that’s not him. He’s clearly doing the bulk of the funny tumbling and jumping. But when there’s beautiful, full-split ballet moves, I hate to tell the world, but that’s actually not Jamie.”

Andy Cohen Asks Jamie Dornan If He Struggled with His Sexuality After Hearing He Loves 'Golden Girls'

Did you know that Jamie Dornan is a huge fan of The Golden Girls?!

Andy Cohen interviewed the cast of Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar for a new episode of SiriusXM’s Radio Andy and he asked Jamie all about his obsession.

Jamie, I heard you’re a big Golden Girls fan by the way,” he said.

Jamie replied, “Yeah [laughs] huge. Yeah, I’m not ashamed to admit that. I, you know, I was in an official Estelle Getty fan club. [laughs].”

After finding out that Jamie was 17 at the time, Andy asked, “Wow. And were you struggling with your sexuality?”

“Uh, you know, I wasn’t actually, I was very secure in what I felt I wanted, but I just, it’s funny, like, come on, you, can’t, Golden Girls is so funny and it holds up and I, if I’m channel surfing, I stop every time,” Jamie said. “And this has just reminded me that when I wrapped, these guys sung the theme tune from Golden Girls and changed the lyrics to our experience. And it was unbelievable.”

Andy asked what inspired Jamie to join that fan club when he was 17. The actor responded, “We can legally drink much younger than you guys. So that definitely played a part.”

Jamie also looked back at his short-lived modeling career and his stint on reality TV.

Jamie Dornan Looks Back on His Short-Lived Modeling Career & Brief Stint as a Reality TV Contestant

Jamie Dornan is opening up about his early career as a model and his time spent as a reality TV contestant!

In an interview for SiriusXM’s Radio Andy, Jamie shocked his Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar co-stars Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig by revealing that he once appeared on the reality TV show Model Behavior.

The Fifty Shades of Grey actor explained, “The truth behind that Andy, was I’d been at university for a year. I used to play a lot of rugby at school. And I was very sporty and I was playing rugby at uni and drinking a lot. And I decided I was going to drop out of university. ‘Cause it just didn’t, it wasn’t the right space for me at the time.”

Ultimately it was Jamie‘s sister who pushed him to audition for the show. “This was sort of almost pre-reality TV,” he continued. Well, you know, like it wasn’t like, it wasn’t even being pitched to us. It was just like, we didn’t really know what it was. My sister says, ‘You should go.’ And I said, ‘What is it?’ And she says, ‘To be a model.’ And I was like, ‘Why would I want to be a model, what a model,’ like it’s the last, no kid where I’m from grows up wanting to be a model. I’ll tell you that. And so I was like, ‘No, I’m not doing it.’ She’s just do it, do it. And then I convinced one of my mates to come with me.”

“That your parents made you try out for a reality show. This is not what I expected, go on,” Andy joked.

“This is like pre-American Idol,” Jamie added. “This is like, nobody knew we didn’t know what a reality TV show was. It wasn’t even sold as that. And I’m, I convinced him to get out of bed. I went and he got kicked out early doors and I like did all right. I actually didn’t even do that well on the show, but it got me enough to sort of move to London. And that was it. And then like two months later, I was working at a bar full time and I’d moved to London and I convinced everyone to let me like follow some dream. I mean, I, I never wanted to be a model. I hated it, but I’d acted at school and I’d always done that too. So it was, it felt like a bit of a gateway into that. So yeah, it was a crazy time.”

Jamie also recently revealed whether he’d rather be in a book club with Dakota Johnson or Anastasia Steele. Find out who he picked!

Josh asked Jamie if he’d rather be in a book club with Dakota, or with her Fifty Shades of Grey character Anastasia Steele. If you don’t know, Jamie and Dakota co-starred as lovers in the Fifty Shades films. When Dakota was asked the same question about Jamie or Christian Grey.

“If she didn’t say me, I’m calling her immediately,” Jamie said, before Josh revealed Dakota picked Jamie.

Jamie first jokingly said “Anastasia!,” before quickly indicating he was joking. He also called Dakota “legitimately funny!”

“She’s a big ‘Would You Rather’ [person],” Jamie revealed, adding she’d pose questions on set during a lull.
