From the moment that it was announced that the hit novel Fifty Shades of Grey was being adapted for the big screen, there has been a huge amount of talk about the project and, while you would expect things to die down a little, following the films big release, you would be mistaken. With two more movies left in the trilogy, we are set for many more years of Fifty Shades talk.
When it was announced that actor Charlie Hunnam had pulled out of playing Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, Irish actor Jamie Dornan stepped into the role. Unfortunately for Jamie, many people have suggested that he made a bad move and that being in the films would have a negative impact on his career but the actor has now come out to defend his decision.
Dornan told The Guardian, "You know, I’m not naive as to why people would think it was a bad [career] choice, or why there is a snobbery about it. But I’m also not stupid, and I knew with [director] Sam [Taylor-Johnson], and [cinematographer] Seamus McGarvey, the film would be in safe hands. And, you know, it does no harm to be in a film that makes half a billion dollars."
Jamie Dornan certainly makes a good point, with the Fifty Shades of Grey movie managing to make an impressive $535m worldwide. Not only that though, but Jamie has also seen himself go from a relative unknown in the world of acting, to a household name all over the world. Not too bad at all, eh?
