Jamie Dornan has insisted that the 'Fifty Shades' movies haven't had an influence on his sex life
Jamie Dornan insists the 'Fifty Shades' movies haven't influenced his sex life.
The 34-year-old actor - who has daughters Phoebe, three, and Dulcie, 11 months, with his wife Amelia Warner - plays kinky businessman Christian Grey in the movie series, but the saucy subject matter hasn't encouraged him and his spouse to be more experimental in the bedroom.
He said: "My wife and I aren't into that so it hasn't had any influence on our sex life.
"Obviously there's a huge market for it but it doesn't interest me at all.
"So I don't think it has had any influence on our sex life. I can't believe I'm talking about our sex life."
When he and co-star Dakota Johnson had to shoot their sex scenes for the film, Jamie was relieved to do all the raunchy filming in one block, though it did make for a "bizarre" week on set.
He said: "Fortunately, they try to group as many scenes as possible. So you have a bizarre week where you try to shoot as much as you can.
"The weeks of the Red Room, as I like to call it, with more explicit parts, only people who are really needed are on set. So that makes it easier."
While 'Fifty Shades' hasn't impacted on Jamie's bedroom antics, he admits the film saga - which is based on E.L. James' raunchy novels - has changed his life.
He told OK! magazine: "It wasn't just the movie, my life really changed in that period.
"My eldest daughter was born three days before we started shooting the first film and my youngest daughter, two weeks before filming the second one.
"In all ways, it has already had an impact on my life and then I get in sync with all the craziness around the movie. A lot more people know who I am."
