Jamie Dornan Has Body Issues
Jamie Dornan may have been cast as hunky Christian Grey in the long-awaited ’50 Shades of Grey’ movie, but he still feels insecure about his physique and wishes he was more muscular.
The former Calvin Klein model told ‘Interview’ magazine, “I don’t like my physique. Who does? I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid.”
In order to play Grey, the sado-masochistic businessman who seduces leading lady Anastasia Steele, Dornan had to go to the gym and work on his fitness routine.
“I think was so much more to Christian that we covered,” Dornan said, talking about his preparations with director Sam Taylor-Johnson. “Someone who is careful to keep himself in shape, someone who spends obscene amounts of money on presenting himself.”
The Irish actor from Co Down also said that it took him a while to get used to wearing a suit so often when playing Grey in the new movie.
“A lot of that work was done in the gym and with costume,” he said. “We didn’t talk about particulars of the way he would move. But I’m quite awkward in a suit because I don’t have an opportunity to wear a suit very often, and this is a guy who lives in a suit — the best suit.”
Along with the interview, photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott somehow convinced Dorman to pose for some seriously sexy pictures on the latest issue of ‘Interview’ magazine.
‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is set for release on Valentine’s Day 2015.
