'Fifty Shades of Grey' star Jamie Dornan has revealed he was the perfect gentleman during sex scenes with Dakota Johnson for the new movie

Jamie Dornan was the perfect gentleman during sex scenes with Dakota Johnson.

The 32-year-old actor stars as Christian Grey in 'Fifty Shades of Grey' alongside Johnson - who plays Anastasia Steele - and he's revealed he behaved impeccably while shooting the racy scenes.

Speaking at the UK premiere of the movie in London last night (12.02.15), Dornan said: "I'd be a really awful person if I didn't cover her up after they called cut and she's naked. I'm not the kind of guy who could just leave her."

Dornan, who married his wife Amelia Warner in 2013, said that his partner is unlikely to see the movie.

He explained: "She hasn't seen the film and I don't think she will, to be honest. I'd understand if she didn't want to."

He also acknowledged that the film could prove awkward for his other loved ones, given the saucy nature of some of the scenes.

Dornan added: "I think there's some stuff where my family and friends will never have seen that side of me before, but it wasn't enough to make me not want to do it."

Meanwhile, author E.L. James - whose books inspired the new movie - admitted it was tough having to hand over creative control of the characters to director Sam Taylor-Johnson.

She shared: "I found it very, very difficult.

"I had to honour the fandom and there were some ideas where I thought, 'No, the Red Room does need to be red', so I fought for the story because of the fans.

"In any creative environment you're going to get discussions."

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.
