Fifty Shades of Grey actor Jamie Dornan is on the cover of Details magazine’s February 2015 issue and inside the magazine the 32-year-old hottie talks about his role as Christian Grey, his biggest fear and more.
Read excerpts from his interview below:
On his interest in playing Christian Grey:“[It had to do with] an attraction and understanding I have for people that are broken in some way. Not that I’m some broken bird, but there’s a massive element of me that’s fractured from losing my mother so young, and I’m drawn to characters who are wounded.”
On staying away from the Internet after his casting news was announced: “I think my publicist said, ‘Yeah, mostly good.’ [I’m] very aware of opinion regarding the film, whether it be positive or negative. It is, by its nature, an easy target.”
On his biggest fear: “I almost don’t want to put this out there into the ether, but I fear I’ll get murdered, like John Lennon, by one of those mad fans at the premiere. Because a lot of people are very angry that I’m playing this character. And I’m a father now, and a husband. I don’t want to die yet.”
On joking about his biggest fear: “And when I do get murdered, people will say, ‘God, isn’t it haunting how he did that interview in Details magazine and predicted his own death on the red carpet?’”
