Jamie Dornan: Fifty Shades 'isn't grotesque'

2014-09-15 18:00

Los Angeles - Jamie Dornan insists that Fifty Shades of Grey won't be "grotesque".

The handsome actor insists the latest film - which is based on the erotic trilogy by author, EL James - will not be too dirty for audiences to enjoy, but admits it will "break a few boundaries".

He explained: "You've got to make something a large amount of people can go and see. It's not going to be grotesque.

"I mean, in some ways, it'll break a few boundaries. But at the same time, they want to put bums on seats. They can't alienate an audience. You know it has to be watchable. It can't be hardcore. I wouldn't have signed up for it if it was."

The 32-year-old star also admitted he wasn't worried about filming the explicit scenes with his co-star Dakota Johnson.

Jamie added to GQ magazine: "I'm not really fearful of that stuff. It's just work. It's strange work, sure, but it's still work. I just get on with it."

He even revealed that his father had encouraged him to take on the role of Christian Grey, as he added: "[Dad] was all for it. I don't come from a cagey family. We're fairly liberal."
