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!
