    Default Jamie Dornan: 'I'd like to stop tying women up'



    Playing men who tie up women in The Fall & Fifty Shades:
    “There are a couple of classic knots I know now, and I’ve put them to good use far too many times recently. In fact I’d like to do a job where I don’t have to tie women to beds.”


    His natural, fidgety intensity:
    “A doctor once told me I have abnormal levels of adrenaline in my system…I’m tired. I’m tired,” he says, reflecting on a “mad year, professionally, personally”. At times his tiredness verges on delirium. At one point he rails against the practice of restaurants putting lemon slices in Coca-Cola, unsolicited (“You can’t deny it changes the flavour”). Then he catches himself and starts fretting that he sounds like a la-di-da Hollywood star.


    His struggles to find work:
    “I never felt I was trying to prove anything apart from to myself. But I come at it from a funny angle. Although it looks like I’ve only been acting a few years, we’re talking hundreds and hundreds of failed auditions. I look back on it now and I don’t know how anyone gets through the rejection.”


    Modeling and being “the golden torso”:
    “I was lucky. If I hadn’t been getting paid to model I definitely would have stopped. I would fly off, do a shoot here and there, get paid well, then go back to preparing – and failing – for auditions and meetings. I think I’ve done two shoots in my underwear ever. They both happened to be for Calvin Klein. But that tag – underwear model – I just can’t get rid of it. And it’s such a bizarre, specific thing – underwear. It’s like I never modelled clothes.” It didn’t help that someone – he thinks it might have been a fashion editor at American GQ – gave him a nickname, and it’s stuck. He says he is “haunted” by the moniker “the golden torso.”


    On Fifty Shades:
    “The whole thing’s ridiculous.” Then he falls silent. “It’s just all a bit silly the way it works. I think I could lose my mind.” By contrast, coming back from Fifty, as he calls it, straight on to The Fall and Belfast, “felt like coming home, in the loveliest way”.


    His future:
    “Right now I don’t need to work if there’s nothing that I want to do. I’ve done three jobs back to back. Let’s see how they are received. If there’s nothing I want to do, I’ll just play golf and change nappies.”

    [From The Guardian]

    LOL he is beginning to sound like Robert Patterson on Twilight. He should have realised that before he signed up for Twilight fanfiction.

    Well, so would anyone else, Jamie...like he's being all profound and shit. I wouldn't do my job if I wasn't getting paid for it either...

    I'm picturing him bursting into tears partway through the interview.

    According to rumours its only going to be one movie because the producers know its really that bad. The script was rewritten right to the last minute and the original scriptwriter doesn't want to talk about it. So its not surprising that he sounds pissed off and the press junket is going to be really fun because he cant even hide his feelings about the movie in this interview. Can you imagine the promo LOL.

    It sounds so awful that I may actually watch as long as I can have simultaneous commentary from the person that did those hilarious as fuck book reviews.

    I can't wait for the Rifftrax guys to get their hands on it. Their Twilight commentaries are hilarious. (Also randomly, their Independence Day commentary track is pure gold.)

    I imagined there will be some sort of drinking game tied to this movie in the future.
