Jamie Dornan Reveals The Story Behind His Iconic Blue Instagram

Jamie Dornan is opening up about his first ever Instagram post – the one of him covered in what looks like blue paint.

Speaking with Variety while promoting his new film, Endings, Beginnings, the 37-year-old actor revealed what was really going on with that image.

“It was for a job. It wasn’t in the present,” Jamie explained. “It’s something that I had done in the past that I haven’t even shot yet, to be honest.”

He adds that it was an “excruciating, dreadful experience” though. “The people who were doing it were lovely, but that whole f—ing thing over your face lasts for 40 minutes, where you’re breathing through the tiniest little holes in your nostril.”

“And I had a f—ing panic attack, and I’m not a panicky person at all. But I had a minute in between all that where I was like, ‘Uhh, guys! Guys!…’ I couldn’t even say that. You weren’t allowed to speak, so I was doing it all through hand signals.

Jamie added that since he was in isolation with his family, there was no better time to join Instagram and share it.

“I was like, ‘F—, I’m going to join Instagram.’ Half of the day I regret that I did it, and half of the day I think it’s kind of fun.”

Jamie also opened up about choosing his roles with intent after Fifty Shades of Grey.

Jamie Dornan Talks About Picking Roles After 'Fifty Shades'

Jamie Dornan is opening up about his process for choosing roles after becoming an international movie star with his role in the Fifty Shades franchise.

The 37-year-old actor spoke with Variety while promoting his new movie Endings, Beginnings, which is now available on VOD.

“I feel like you don’t have a f—ing clue what’s right until you read it and you’re like, ‘Oh, this is it. This is what I want to do next.’ I think I have a stronger sense of what’s not right for me,” Jamie said when talking about his philosophy for choosing roles. “And one thing with this job is to challenge myself and one thing is to keep a very large element of variety. I just wouldn’t — and I’m not trying to discredit anyone who’s in this world — but I just couldn’t be an actor who does action film after action film or, indeed, who does comedy after comedy.”

“I mean, that might be slightly more bearable, but my whole thing of being an actor is that we get to embody all these different worlds, and that’s what excites me. I’m not closed off to being in an action movie. I just don’t want to do four a year. If one comes along and speaks to me, then — yes, sure. And I think I’ve been lucky in everything post-Fifty Shades,” he continued. “There’s a lot in the market of the $5 to $15 million budget movie. And I personally believe that’s where the best scripts are. I’ve done things like Anthropoid or A Private War, and some of these movies, I’m really proud of. I’m just lucky they came my way because of the box office success of Fifty Shades.”

Jamie Dornan Defends Gal Gadot's 'Imagine' Video, Reveals Who Asked Him to Participate

Jamie Dornan is one of the many celebrities who was featured in Gal Gadot‘s viral “Imagine” video and he’s speaking out to defend the intentions of the video.

Gal gathered a bunch of celebs to sing snippets of the John Lennon song “Imagine” to show support for people around the world affected by the current health crisis. Instead of inspiring fans, it actually got a negative reaction as people called out celebrities for singing lines like “imagine no possessions” when they actually are privileged.

Jamie opened up about the video during an appearance on the Tea With Me podcast.

“It’s a funny thing. Not being on social media, I wasn’t really that aware of the negative reaction, but I was made aware quite quickly by some mates,” he said. “It was early on in the lockdown process. Gal, who organized it, she organized it with Kristen Wiig.”

Kristen and I did a movie together last summer that’s meant to be coming out this summer on July 31, but who knows what will happen. There’s still hoping it will get a cinematic release, who knows… We got on brilliantly. I would do anything for her — that’s how highly I think of her. I was the biggest fan of her before anyway,” Jamie added. “Such a genius… Kristen texted, ‘My friend Gal and I are trying to organize this thing to lift people’s spirits.’”

Jamie said that he was told they wanted him to sing just a line from the song and he could pick between two different lines. He said “of course” he’d do it and it sounded like a “lovely thing to do.”

A few days after the video was released, Kristen texted Jamie and said “sorry” for asking him to be part of the video.

“I’ll tell you what the problem was. I literally did mine in the toilet of my house… Quite clearly, some people had escaped to their second home,” Jamie continued. “There’s too much acreage in the background, too many beautiful trees swaying in the background, clearly in front of an ocean, that sort of craic. I was quite aware of that whenever I was doing it, to make it normal.”

Jamie defended Gal by saying, “Listen. Break it all down, that’s a very well-known, successful, beautiful person, who, I’ve never met, but everyone I know says she’s lovely and she’s all about being good and kind. She was trying to do a good and kind thing and just got nailed for it. I just got dragged along with it, but listen, what are we going to do.”
