Jamie Dornan has denied claims he won't be starring in any sequels to kinky film 'Fifty Shades of Grey' after it was claimed his wife had asked him not to

Jamie Dornan has denied claims he won't star in a 'Fifty Shades of Grey' sequel because his wife doesn't want him to.

The 32-year-old hunk had reportedly told film bosses he wouldn't be reprising his role as kinky businessman Christian Grey in the next two films in the series, but it's now been claimed the sequels are yet to be confirmed.

A representative for the star told The Sun newspaper: "All press reports are pure conjecture as the studio has not committed to a sequel as yet."

The 'Fall' actor took on the role in the film based on E.L. James' novel of the same name after 'Sons of Anarchy' star Charlie Hunnam dropped out.

However, it's been claimed Jamie's wife Amelia Warner - with whom he has a young daughter - is unhappy with her husband getting intimate with co-star Dakota Johnson and had requested he turn down the sequels, although this has now been shot down as nothing but a "rumour".

Jamie's spokeswoman said: "There's no truth to this fabricated rumour."

Reports of troubles in their marriage emerged after an Australian publication claimed Amelia was unhappy with her husband of two years starring in explicit sex scenes.

NW magazine reported a source as saying: "Jamie said the movie would sky rocket his career.

"He tried to assure Amelia nothing would change but women all over the world now lust after Jamie.

"She hasn't seen the film and I don't think she will to be honest."

Fifty Shades of Grey

  • 3 stars
  • 2015
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle
  • UK release: 13 February 2015

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.

Fifty Shades Darker

  • 2 stars
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan
  • UK release: 10 February 2017

No surprises here: Anastasia (Johnson) gets sweet-talked back into the red room by Christian (Dornan). Foley seems to be under orders to skip the actual sex, as the real money shots are of Christian’s wardrobe. Johnson manages to be likeable and human, but otherwise it’s high on production values and short on story.
