Jamie Dornan's wife won't be watching Fifty Shades of Grey

Los Angeles - Jamie Dornan's wife doesn't want to watch Fifty Shades of Grey.

The 32-year-old actor admits Amelia Warner, with whom he has 15-month-old daughter Dulcie, won't check out his talent in his new erotic drama, in which he plays sexy businessman Christian Grey, because the risqué scenes will make her feel uncomfortable.

Speaking to USA Today, Jamie said: "She doesn't want to watch this. She wants to support me and my work. I won't be able to sit there myself. I am not going to put any pressure on her either way. It's her decision. She's well aware that it's pretend, but it's probably not that comfortable to watch."

The hunky star even finds himself covering his eyes when he watches a scene of him in the nude because he finds it awkward seeing his bare butt on screen.

He explained: "There's quite a long shot of my butt. I wasn't hugely comfortable with it when I watched it. That's my bum. Still my bum. Wow."

Meanwhile, Jamie admits he's never felt overly confident about his appearance and wishes he'd had more time to work out for his role in the long-awaited adaptation of EL James' novel.

He said recently: "No matter how many times you get filmed with your top off and the photographers are saying 'Oh, you look great, add more oil', and all that, you have all these things ingrained in your head - insecurities about yourself.

"All the people in the world saying stuff like this isn't going to alter that. I only had four weeks to work out for this role. I would have liked more time. But like I said, I don't think I am ever going to be happy with how I look.''
