Jamie Dornan always makes sure to watch the films he stars in at least once so he can make sure he's not doing anything subconsciously which might change how the character is perceived

Jamie Dornan watches his movies at least once.

The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' star always makes sure to check out his performance in every film as he likes to see things he might have missed during filming.

He said: "I think you only watch stuff you've done once because I don't think it's that beneficial to you. I think it's important to sometimes be like, 'What's that thing I'm doing with my face? I didn't think I was doing that.' But once is definitely plenty.

"Outside of ADR, I got to watch 'Anthropoid' with this Czech audience and the story means so much to the Czech people so watching it with that audience was kind of terrifying but they responded very well."

And the 34-year-old actor insists he doesn't have any specific directors he wants to work with and loves the "ever-changing landscape" of the film industry.

When asked who he wants to work with next, he said: "I don't have specific people. There are so many people that I admire and there's directors that I'm desperate to work with that haven't even made a movie yet, probably.

"There's very exciting directors who haven't made a feature yet. That's what's cool about the job - the ever-changing landscape of people you could potentially work with."

Meanwhile, Jamie - who has two-year-old daughter Dulcie with his wife Amelia Warner - also opened up about working with new director James Foley on the sequels to the erotic film.

He told The Hollywood Reporter: "We just finished two and three back-to-back, so I'm finished now. Jamie Foley - he's a very different energy to Sam [Taylor-Johnson]. The whole experience was actually quite different. A lot of the pressure of the first movie was gone.

"Essentially I feel like all of that pressure when you're making the first of a franchise of [movies based on] books that mean so much to people that has so much attention on it, it can be quite paralyzing I think. I think a lot of that creeped in the first time around and it maybe affects the work. But this time, I know because the movie's made a lot of money, everyone's relaxed a bit so there wasn't that pressure to set the tone for the movies so I felt a little more freedom this time and it probably made it more enjoyable."
