'Fifty Shades Of Grey' star Jamie Dornan doesn't understand the fuss made over S&M scenes in the new movie.

Jamie Dornan doesn't understand the fuss made over the bondage scenes in 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'.

The 32-year-old actor, who has been cast as Christian Grey in the feature film adaptation of the best-selling novel, is confused by those who have a problem with the subject matter and insists there are much stranger things in the world than S&M.

He said: "There's weirder s**t 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?"

Jamie explained that he's a "liberal" guy and isn't particularly fussed by people indulging in bondage.

He told GQ magazine: "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!

"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."

Fifty Shades of Grey

  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson

Despite its troubling gender politics and distinct lack of plot, the likeable Johnson brings nuance and charm to a paper-thin character; Dornan manages to offer a hint of humanity; and given the many constraints, this sleek, fairly trim and occasionally sensual adaptation is the best imaginable outcome.
