After the disappointment of the first movie still of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, which was released on Christian Grey’s Birthday in the movie adaptation of E.L. James novel 50 Shades the Irish actor posted a photo on his Instagram that apparently made up to what “Fifty Shades” fan expected which they missed from the first still. In the first movie still posted on the official Facebook Page of “Fifty Shades” Jamie Dornan portraying the Christian Grey, a sexy billionaire was seen in a black leather jacket starring on cam as he sits on the driving seat of his famous black Audi R8 Spyder. But nothing from the image can be noted as to how much of the book will be in movie.
The new still which is supposed to be from movie which Dornan posted on his Instagram account, however, the 32-year-old “Fifty Shades of Grey” actor showed that there is more to the movie than a sexy billionaire sitting behind his wheels. The new picture shared by Dornan on his Instagram with a caption reading “You Like?”, shows the actor standing wearing an unbuttoned grey shirt and a loosened tie holding a glass of alcohol in his left hand staring down in his white diesel boxers at a blindfolded girl supposed to be Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) who is kneeling on the floor. However the photo is not from the upcoming movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” but from previous photo shoot for GQ in 2006. The blindfolded girl in the photo is not our Anastasia Steele but a model Rosie Huntington-Whitley.
Last weekend Rita Ora who plays the character of Mia Grey in the highly anticipated movie “Fifty Shades” posted a fun snap on instagram of hers, Dakota Johnson and of a fashion designer and a daughter of Paul McCartney Stella McCartney with a caption that reads “ Reunited with my ladies @stellamccartney #dakota #arrgghhhhhhhh.
Meanwhile like many actress Lucy Hale also auditioned for “Fifty Shades of Grey.” The “Pretty Little Liars” star may have lost out of Dakota Johnson who will be playing the role of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming movie but she has shared some details about the audition. Lucy Hale says it was awkward. “It actually was just me [in the audition]. It was a two-page monologue of exactly what you would think it would be, “Hale told.”Very uncomfortable, but it was sort of one of those things where you just had to go for it or you’re just gonna look lame — hopefully, I didn’t look lame.”
The movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” which stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in its lead role, Jamie will play the role of S&M obsessed billionaire Christian Grey and Dakota will play the role of Anastasia Steele a young college graduate. It has been reported the movie will be far more romantic than erotic when it comes to taking E.L. James work on big screen. The much anticipated film will be released on a day before the Valentine’s Day 13 February 2015.
Jamie Dornan opened up about his developing career and playing Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of “Fifty Shades of Grey” penned by E.L. James this week. The 32-year-old model turned actor got the role after Charlie Hunnam dropped out, which gave the 34-year-old “Sons of Anarchy” star something to say about the role recently as well at the Hauding Film Awards in Hollywood.
Jamie Dornan Aka Christian Grey first gained fame as an underwear model but he struggled a lot for a break in acting scenes because he’s “crap at auditions,” as he said in an interview for Interview magazine’s June issue. “I know there are people who can walk into those rooms and make those lines sing on the page and get the job immediately. I wasn’t one of them,” he said with a laugh. “I’m still not one of them. Even after I got my first acting job, thanks to Sofia Coppola, director of 2006′s ‘Marie Antoinette,’ where Dornan played Count Axel Fersen, I still went a while without working.”Playing the lead role in the movie adaptation “Fifty Shades” Dornan might have better luck. But don’t worry the 32-year-old actor as an S&M-loving billionaire, won’t let fame get to his head. “I don’t want to be showy,” he said. “I’m not interested in seeing that, and I don’t want to do it.”
Meanwhile Charlie Hunnam, who dropped out of the role of Christian Grey is still heartbroken. The “Sons of Anarchy” star told Life & Style Magazine that he regrets backing out the role of Christian Grey in the movie “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Hunnam steeped down due to alleged scheduling conflict with “Sons of Anarchy”.”I felt like I had an interesting take on that character and felt like I could have done a good job of playing Christian Grey, otherwise I wouldn’t have taken it on in the first place,” he told Life & Style. “When you put the time into something like that and a character comes alive in your mind, it’s heartbreaking not to be able to play him … It was definitely kind of heartbreaking having to say goodbye to that character and not bring it to life.” Despite backing out, Hunnam did say that he still plans on going to see the movie.”If they invite me to the premiere, I will go and see it there,” he said. “If not, I’ll go and buy some tickets on opening night.”
Fifty Shades will be Dornan’s first major movie role as a leading man following his strong performance as a serial killer on television drama The Fall. When asked if there is a difference in artistic approach for the big and small screen, Dornan said good acting is good acting on any size of the screen. The movie Fifty Shades of Grey is scheduled to hit theaters on February 13, 2015. The film adaptation of E.L. James’ best-selling erotic novel will focus on the deepening relationship between a college graduate, Anastasia Steele, and a young business magnate, Christian Grey.
Tall…check. Dark eyes… check. Handsome… check. When it comes to every woman’s idea of a perfectly handsome man, who fits the bill better than Jamie Dornan? When it comes to his looks, he ticks off in all the right boxes. He is tall and handsome, of course, but not technically dark. But he does have dark eyes and those brooding eyes more than make up for his lack of a dark complexion. And his fans (the female ones more so) will agree that his smouldering presence can be felt in the first look poster of “Fifty Shades” as well!
But the producers of the film, having wrapped up the shoot of the movie in Vancouver, are all ready for a little treat for the fans and the eager viewers. At CinemaCon in Las Vegas, the producers were all ready with an assortment of trailers and teasers, which included the very first footage of the first look from Fifty Shades of Grey. The first look footage which has been prepared is about two minutes long, and opens with a look at Seattle’s cityscape. We are sure you remember the first look poster where Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, was seen standing with this back to the camera and looking out into the Seattle cityscape, from his office on the top floor of the building which houses his Grey Enterprises.
The tall, dark-eyed and handsome hunk stands with his hands inside his trouser pockets and he can be seen peering out into Seattle, his city, from a floor-to-ceiling window in his office. In the first look trailer, the city is seen in some sunshine, but mostly gray skies. In the background, a slow and soft piano piece plays on, that is in some way reminiscent of Beyonce’s “Haunted”. Next Anastasia Steele, played by Dakota Johnson, can be seen appearing as she recounts her first meeting with Christian Grey, in his office, to her roommate, Kate Cavanaugh.
And since we are talking about Anastasia recounting her first meeting with the enigmatic and self-made millionaire, it should remind you of another poster that was launched when it was only a year to Fifty Shades release. On that poster, a visibly timid and shy Anastasia (Dakota) could be seen waiting for her turn to meet the businessman, whom she was supposed to interview for her college newspaper. In the first look promo, Kate asks Anastasia, after she has met him, what he is like. But this appears as a voiceover, as the visuals of Ana and Christian’s meeting roll out.
Next, we hear Grey’s assistant telling Ana, that Mr. Grey would see her. And as the virginal college graduate walks into the spacious office, they exchange glances, and while Ana offers only shy glances, Christian looks fixedly at her. While Ana narrates the meeting to Kate, the viewers are treated to more scenes between them, as their hands touch and eventually the scenes where they embrace and kiss and court each other, start unfolding. And the only take away from all of this is that Jamie looks smouldering and so does their chemistry. To get more scoops about their love story, wait till the 13th of February, 2015, when the film Fifty Shades of Grey officially sees the light of day.
If you are a certain Jamie Dornan and you are offered the lead role in the most looked forward to film of 2015, will you still say that you are not certain or you don’t have an idea as to how your life will be changed? Well, seems like the Irish hunk thinks so. The point here is that as the lead actor in a film, where you play the titular role, the spotlight is always bound to be on you and with the shooting of the film already wrapped up and Jamie being used to all the adulation and female fan following, it should not come as a surprise to him that his life has indeed changed, for the better of course.
With Hunnam walking out and him ousting all other possible candidates like Robert Pattinson, Ian Somerhalder and Matt Bomer and the likes, it was as if fate handpicked him for the role of the charmingly devious entrepreneur, Christian Grey. While speaking on The Graham Norton Show, the father of one said that since the novel has been such a huge success, with 100 million in sales, he expects the film to be a major box office money churner, even if one-third of those people (who read and loved the book) turn up when the movie releases next year, a day before Valentine’s Day.
He admitted that the movie and the cast and the crew were in a powerful and nice position, but he also admitted that he has no idea what it will do for him. However, on the show, he did mention that there is one thing that the movie has changed for him, and in the most positive sense, and that was the way he has been walking all his life.
He further admitted that he always had a complex about the way he walked and had it not been for his dance teacher, who trained him on the set of Fifty Shades he would not have realised ever that he has walking wrong all his life. While practicing for a dance scene with the leading lady of the movie, Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele, Jamie said that his dance teacher/instructor told him to walk heel-to-toe, and these three magic words made sure that he did not walk, like he used to, anymore.
Jamie confessed that before this life altering dance lesson, he always used to walk more like toe-to-toe. Even if he does not realise, we have enough reason to prove and believe that his coveted role in Fifty Shades of Grey has been a boon and a blessing for him, from all aspects possible. From being a Calvin Klein model to starring in hit television series such as ‘The Fall’ and ‘Once Upon a Time’, life has been kind to Jamie Dornan and if, and we are sure it will, ‘Fifty Shades…’ lives up to its expectations, he can safely and confidently ‘walk’ his way to the bank!
