Los Angeles - Jamie Dornan "hates" shaving his beard off because he thinks he looks like a "thumb".

The 34-year-old actor plays Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey films but has admitted he dislikes the way he looks when he hasn't got any facial hair for the sexy role because he thinks it makes him look "really young".

Speaking about his appearance with chat show host Jonathan Ross on The Jonathan Ross Show, which will air on ITV on Saturday, the dark-haired hunk said: "I hate my face without a beard, I swear to God I really hate it. I always think I look really young. I think when I'm clean shaven, I look like a thumb."

However, his facial hair isn't the only issue Jamie has a problem with as he has revealed he also has an "issue" with his normal "resting face".

Jamie - who was ranked third in People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive ranking in 2014 - explained: "My own 'Jamie Resting Face' is what I have an issue with."

Meanwhile, Jamie - who was cast as the serial killer Paul Spector in the BBC Drama The Fall alongside Gillian Anderson - has revealed he never auditioned for the lead role in the crime series.

Speaking about the popular show, he said: "I auditioned for Olsen who dies in the second episode of the first series. I auditioned for the good guy, for the police officer. Usually it happens the other way around you go in for one of the jazzier parts in the production and you think it goes relatively well and they say, 'They loved you but they're going to bring you back in to read the part for the postman."

Although Jamie is currently filming the final series for the show, he teases the show may come back in "some incarnation".

He said: "We're billing this as the final series but there may be a world where it comes back in some incarnation with whoever else at a certain time but for now this is it which is very sad."
