Star Jamie Dornan recalled facing intense backlash for his role in the film Fifty Shades of Grey.
Jamie was taken aback by the amount of negativity that poured in from all fronts over erotic scenes in the film.
In a chat with British GQ, the Belfast actor said,“There’s nothing like Fifty Shades in terms of, it was based on books and we were staying very close to these books. These books were loved by fandom. Really loved, obsessively loved, and despised by every critic. Real critics hated the books.”
Further adding Dornan stated, “You know that you’re going to have these movies that are for the fans, that the fans are going to love, that are gonna make a ton of money. But you know that the critics will just be licking their lips and that’s exactly what happened. And we knew that was going to happen so you’re watching that play out and at times that's difficult.”
Dornan suffered the ‘ wrath of hatred’ after Charlie Hunnam backed out of the franchise in 2013.
Dornan essayed the role of a sadist Christian Grey in the franchise.
