Jamie Dornan’s Odd Prep for “50 Shades”

Stars Film "Fifty Shades Of Grey" Reshoots

Jamie Dornan is a good actor…he does his research!

US weekly reports that, prior to taking on the iconic role of S&M-loving billionaire Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, he paid a visit to a “sex dungeon” for a sexy lil’ lesson…

“I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did…whatever they were into. I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives,” the Once Upon a Time hunk, 32, told Elle UK for its February issue, which hits stands on Jan. 2.

“I was like: ‘Come on, guys, I know I’m not paying for this, but I am expecting a show,'” he quipped to the mag. “It was an interesting evening. Then going back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards…I had a long shower before touching either of them.”

But that wasn’t the only prep the hunky actor did.  The Guardian earlier this year reported that Dornan became quite adept at working with his hands.

“There are a couple of classic knots I know now, and I’ve put them to good use far too many times recently,” he said in April. “In fact, I’d like to do a job where I don’t have to tie women to beds.”

Fifty Shades of Grey co-stars Dakota Johnson and get this…is due to hit theaters on Valentine’s Day 2015. ROMANTIC!

Eddie Redmayne is Married!

The 2014 Toronto International Film Festival - 'The Theory Of Everything' Premiere

Congratulations, Eddie Redmayne!

People reports that The Theory of Everything star, 32, tied the knot with fiancée Hannah Bagshawe on Monday at Babington House in Somerset, England!  I assume that’s some very old, very beautiful castle-like place, because this whole affair sounds very…British.

Says Redmayne’s rep:

“I am happy to confirm that Hannah and Eddie married today. They celebrated with a small number of close family and friends.”

Redmayne and Bagshawe were engaged over Memorial Day weekend.  A tying the knot AND a huge summer film? Not too shabby for this bloke!

Joaquin Phoenix: I Grew Up in a Cult

AFI FEST 2014 - 'Inherent Vice' Premeire

Joaquin Phoenix is getting real with us…real CULTY!

Usually Joaquin doesn’t talk much about his odd childhood, but he uncharacteristically got candid in the December 2014 issue of Playboy. In the issue, the actor discussed being raised in the religious group Children of God, and how traumatizing (or not) this experience was.

On the “community” dynamic of Children of God: “My parents had a religious experience and felt strongly about it,” Phoenix, 40, said in an interview published this week. “They wanted to share that with other people who wanted to talk about their experience with religion. These friends were like, ‘Oh, we believe in Jesus as well.’ I think my parents thought they’d found a community that shared their ideals. Cults rarely advertise themselves as such. It’s usually someone saying, ‘We’re like-minded people. This is a community,’ but I think the moment my parents realized there was something more to it, they got out.”

After getting out, his family changed their last name from Bottom to Phoenix, and moved to California. Phoenix signed to an agent at the age of six, starting his three decade career in the biz!

On beginning to act: “We were always singing and playing music, and we were encouraged to express ourselves,” he recalled of his childhood. “When you’re a kid, acting is an extension of playing. You have an imagination, right? If that’s encouraged and you’re in an environment where you’re given these props and opportunities to express yourself, it’s terribly exciting. I always loved it. In fact, I was thinking about it driving across the San Fernando Valley today. We used to live deep in the valley, and the station wagon would break down all the time when we’d go on auditions. But I loved those moments when you’d walk into an audition or onto a set and have an experience you didn’t know you were capable of and didn’t really even know where it came from. It was so fulfilling to have that experience.”

Benedict Cumberbatch Talks Engagement, CumberBABIES!

Keira Knightley at The Imitation Game Special Screening in LA

Go the Kardashian route? NO WAY. 

Classy Benedict Cumberbatch was never going to announce his engagement to theater director and actress Sophie Hunter via social media, that’s just not his style. Instead, he announced it in the births, deaths and marriages column of The Times, and told People that the decision “seemed right.”

We agree, Ben!

“It’s what I would have done if I wasn’t sort of famous. It’s what we do. It’s a kind of traditional thing to do,” the actor, 38, said at the premiere of The Imitation Game in Los Angeles, sponsored by Chanel.

“I wanted to have some control over the message. I don’t Tweet or do social media. It’s too impersonal. I would rather do what we did, and have people find it, and not see us from some s—ty, grainy footage staring lovingly into each others eyes with a ring on someone’s finger. I wanted it to be ours.”

He added: “We’re so happy, and we just wanted to let everyone know how happy we are.”

“One of the most incredible things about getting engaged, which we had no idea would be coming back our way, is the amount of love that just comes flooding back,” the Sherlock Holmes and 12 Years a Slave actor said. “I thought it was just all about us declaring that we were in love and getting married, but actually it’s the world going, ‘We love you too!’ It’s amazing. Family, friends, the world … it’s amazing.”

Finally, Benedict that his fans are now expecting something else – so-called “Cumberbabies.”

“Oh my God,” he replied. “Well, my mother is also waiting for Cumberbabies.”

Yep, fans, your mom AND us.  So excited for you and Sophie!
