  • Jamie Dornan: My wife refuses to watch Fifty Shades of Grey

Jamie Dornan, when asked if his wife Amelia Warner would be seeing the film, replied that she didn’t want to want that. He added, “I am not going to put any pressure on her either. She’s well aware that it’s pretend, but it’s probably not that comfortable for her to watch.”
