Get your whips out, it's finally here! What is? A horsey? No! Something far more amazing -- the first official photo of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey! You're welcome cat ladies and single women of the world. We are glad we could help with your dark fantasies this fine Wednesday.
Feast your peepers on the first image from the S&M-tastic film, Fifty Shades of Grey. In the pic, the actor gives a smoldering look from the seat of his car. We wouldn't mind going on a ride with him -- but Christian try not to be too rough, some of us bruise easily!
The film, based on EL James' wildly popular erotic novel, follows Christian Grey, a handsome and wealthy businessman, who delves into a passionate world of pleasure and pain with college student Anastasia Steele, played by Dakota Johnson.
We are a little perplexed at why the studio would release this (pretty boring) pic (we want to see his body or at least ball gag!) as the first photo from the much anticipated film -- but we will take what we can get!
Jamie Dornan covers Interview's June/July issue, and the 32-year-old actor goes nearly naked in a bathtub in his sexy spread for the magazine. We STILL haven't seen a trailer for Fifty Shades of Grey, so this will have to hold us over until the first clip hits the web. (There was a teaser shown at CinemaCon in Las Vegas back in March, but we have yet to see clips from that!)
So what does the Irish hunk think about beefing up and showing off his hot bod on the big screen? He's more self-conscious than you'd think! “I don’t like my physique," he says. "Who does? I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid.” Um, REALLY? Maybe this was before he saw his pics from the shoot?
On gearing up to play the complicated and S&M loving Christian Grey:
“I think there was so much more to Christian that we covered—someone who is careful to keep himself in shape, someone who spends obscene amounts of money on presenting himself. A lot of that work was done in the gym and with costume.”
On Mr. Grey's wardrobe:
“We didn’t talk about particulars of the way he would move. But I’m quite awkward in a suit because I don’t have an opportunity to wear a suit very often, and this is a guy who lives in a suit—the best suit. That has to have an effect. But when you end up in a suit for 80 percent of the filming process, you become pretty comfortable with it.”
But would Christian wear this, much less be photographed wearing this?
