‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ star Jamie Dornan: 'I'd like a job where I don't have to tie women to beds'

Aside from acting and modeling, Jamie Dornan says he’s acquired a few unusual skills over the years as result of the roles he’s played – including that of billionaire S&M enthusiast, Christian Grey, in the Fifty Shades of Grey film series.


“There are a couple of classic knots I know now,” the 31-year-old star said in a recent interview with The Guardian. “And I’ve put them to good use far too many times recently. In fact, I’d like to do a job where I don’t have to tie women to beds.”

By his own admission, it’s been a “mad year, professionally, personally” for Jamie, who welcomed a baby girl with wife Amelia Warner in November.

“Right now I don’t need to work if there’s nothing that I want to do,” he admitted. “I’ve done three jobs back to back. Let’s see how they are received. If there’s nothing I want to do, I’ll just play golf and change nappies.”

One thing is for sure, Jamie will soon be catapulted to super stardom thanks to his appearance in Fifty Shades.

“The whole thing’s ridiculous,” he said of the hype surrounding his starring role. “It’s just all a bit silly the way it works. I think I could lose my mind.”
