New York — Don't look for Jamie Dornan on social media. He's had it.

Specifically, he's had it with hate-mongering trolls he's encountered despite a hyper fan base for Fifty Shades and The Fall.

"To be honest, I was very inactive on it in the last year," he said during a recent round of interviews for two upcoming films, Anthropoid and The 9th Life of Louis Drax.

"To delete my Instagram ... I had to email my publicist to get the password. Twitter I used to have a bit of fun with back in the day but I think I've tweeted twice in the last year," Dornan said.

The reality of living life out loud on social media looks like this from his perspective:

"The more public interest in you, the more horrible people become," Dornan said. "People start to say disgusting things about your family, about your children. What's the point?"

On the Fifty Shades front, which includes back-to-back filming of the steamy trilogy's last two instalments, Dornan is enjoying the prospect of life post-Christian Grey.

"It's satisfying to put an end to any job, I think, and to do two back to back, I think there's an element of relief that the work is done and you're happy with it," he said.

And, yes, his wife, Amelia Warner, spent some time on the Fifty Shades sets.

"Yeah, a couple of times on choice days," Dornan said. "There were some days where it probably doesn't make a lot of sense for her to be hanging around."
