Jamie Dornan in The Fall


How Fifty Shades Of Grey's Jamie Dornan Hid from Backlash

Years after the ending of the "Fifty Shades" film franchise, actor Jamie Dornan still recalls all the negativity he faced for his performance as billionaire Christian Grey.

During an interview on the BBC podcast "Desert Island Discs," Dornan said he and his wife Amelia Warner ran from public life in the wake of "Fifty Shades of Grey" in 2015.

Dornan said, "I am coming off the back of career altering reviews for 'The Fall' to just ridicule." Director Sam Taylor-Johnson even lent Dornan her home so he could hide away.

He continued, "It [the film] made so much money that [...] I'm now contractually doing two more of them and knowing that there would be more of that damnation to come."

While the actor does lament that critics continue to bring up his “Fifty Shades” role to this day, he doesn’t regret the film. As he put it, "But regrets that I did them, no."

Jamie Dornan has stayed booked and busy since playing Christian Grey, and he's made a point of branching out and picking wildly diverse roles that really show off his range.
