Jamie Dornan: ‘I think plane spotting is far weirder than S&M’

The star of the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey – and number three in GQ’s Best Dressed Men in Britain 2015 – talks to GQ about S&M and describes what it’s like to film a sex scene. Read this exclusive preview and see two photos from February’s issue of British GQ.

On his character in Fifty Shades of Grey
“In the course of researching this character, I have seen the reality very closely. I can tell you from an alarmingly first-hand perspective it’s not altogether sexy. But I’ve been in a dungeon with a lukewarm beer while a dominant has had some fun with his submissive and it was very playful and jovial and not at all dark and serious. There was a lot of laughter…”

On filming the sex scenes
“Your dignity is intact as much as it’s all tucked away in a little flesh-coloured bag… As a guy you put all your essentials in a little bag and you tie it up like a little bag of grapes and it’s tucked away. Its quite a peculiar thing to do every day.”

On S&M
“I’m an extremely liberal person, I don’t give a f***. If people are into that they’re into that. By the way, if people make such a hoo-hah about the violence against women aspect of it, it’s far more common for men to be the submissive. And it’s consensual! There’s weirder shit than that. I think plane spotting is far weirder than S&M. That I really don’t get. I can understand why people are into S&M, but standing outside Heathrow Terminal 5 waiting for Ryanair to come in?”

Reflecting on his life
“I feel good that I have my life in order. I’m not addicted to anything that I’m aware of. I’m not 21. I’m married to the most understanding person I’ve ever met. I have a baby. I think those are good things that stand me in decent stead going into whatever it is.”

Jamie Dornan for ElleUK

Jamie Dornan and Fifty Shades of Grey fans have been waiting for over a year for his take on the part of Christian Grey.

And ELLE UK scored the world exclusive shoot and interview, which will run in our February issue. Pre-order it here.

For now, a few teasers. Firstly Mr Dornan arrived direct from one Mr Eddie Redmayne’s stag do (Eddie stars on our January issue collector’s cover, get it here). We have never seen anyone so tired and still vertical. Yet even one-step-short-of-comatose he sent the temperature through the roof.

Secondly, he told us all about researching the part of Christian Grey. So how does a nice lad from Holywood, Co. Down, prepare to play THIS sexual sadist (as opposed to the sexual sadist serial killer he plays in The Fall)?

He visits a sex-dungeon of course. “I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did…whatever they were into. I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives,” he says.

There was plenty of kink… and plenty laughter. “I was like: ‘Come on guys I know I’m not paying for this but I am expecting a show.’ It was an interesting evening. Then going back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards… I had a long shower before touching either of them.”

We also made an exclusive Word Games film of our cover shoot. He’s pretty, deadpan and funny – just how we like them.

Mr Dornan will also appear on a special digital edition cover. So if you want an additional shot download the issue when it goes on sale on 2nd January.

Fifty Shades of Grey is in cinemas February 13th.
