The Northern Irish hunk had one choice word to say about the rumours his wife wasn’t letting him do any more 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' movies.
Ever since Fifty Shades Of Grey hit cinemas on Valentines Day the film and its cast and crew have the subject of rumours concerning who is and isn’t onboard for the planned sequels. But one star who’s no longer staying silent on the rumours is Christian Grey himself, Jamie Dornan, who described talk of his wife banning him from future Fifty Shades movies as ‘total bollocks’.
Jamie Dornan has spoken out over rumours his wife doesn't want him to return as Christian Grey
In an interview with the Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye Dornan said, “The idea was that we honour the trilogy and do all three.” So then what about those rumours that his wife Amelia Warner wanting him to pull out of the steamy sequels?
The controversial film has already been banned in Indonesia, Malaysia and Kenya, and a refusal was also expected from the mainly conservative India.
Despite conquering box offices wherever it goes, it seems that Indian fans of E.L. James’ erotic novel won’t get the chance to enjoy the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey after the country’s government censors banned it.
According a report by Reuters, India’s Central Board of Film Certification decided that the film was unsuitable for theatrical release in the largely conservative country, a verdict that most onlookers had anticipated.
The Board’s chief executive Shravan Kumar has not stated the precise reasons why they have taken the decision to prevent the film from being screened, but said the distributor Universal Pictures would be allowed to appeal.

Rumours that the Irish hunk wouldn’t reprise his role as Christian Grey had sent fans into a frenzy on social media.
A representative for Jamie Dornan has denied reports that the actor has pulled out of any future Fifty Shades of Grey movies, after rumours circulated saying he’d ‘walked away’ from the burgeoning franchise.
Could Jamie really be leaving Christian Grey behind?
Speaking to E! News, a rep for Dornan tried to quash the rumours saying, ”All press reports are pure conjecture as the studio has not committed to a sequel as yet.”
Despite a huge dive in attendance numbers, the much talked-about movie stays at the top of the box offices for a second week.
Erotic blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey held on to its spot at the top of the box office, despite seeing a massive drop in ticket sales. Receipts of $23.3 million were reported by the L.A. Times, down a whopping 73% from its first weekend.
A decline was of course expected, but the figure is at least 30% less than most projections for its second weekend. When it opened in time for the extended Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend last Friday (February 13th), it took a mammoth $94.4 million.
With Sam Taylor-Johnson reportedly wanting out of directing the upcoming sequels, is author E.L. James set to write the screenplays?
Fifty Shades of Grey might be continuing its domination of the box office this weekend, but it seems that announcing the film’s sequels has become a much trickier business for studio Universal.
Earlier this week, The Sun reported that director Sam Taylor-Johnson had pulled out of doing any more Fifty Shades movies, due to her tempestuous relationship with the book's author E.L. James. But while reports of Taylor-Johnson’s departure remains unconfirmed, Variety now writes that the author is gearing up to pen the screenplay for sequel Fifty Shades Darker herself.
With the release of 'Fifty Shade of Grey' a week ago, the film has reached an incredible box-office total - and it isn't over yet.
After just a week on release, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' has already passed $100 million box office in the US and $300 million globally. It has claimed the title as the most successful R-rated film opening ever and it's Universal's best-ever opening in 30 territories. The movie is also one of the biggest grossing movies directed by a woman.
Ironically for a kinky romance, the film's $85 million opening in America claimed the record for a February release from Mel Gibson's 'The Passion of the Christ'. In the UK, 'Fifty Shades' had the biggest ever debut for an 18-certificate movie and the biggest for a film that isn't a sequel or part of a franchise.

Cinema goers around the world have been behaving badly at showings of Fifty Shades of Grey. But it has nothing to do with fooling around on the back row! In Glasgow, three women were arrested after they assaulted a man during a screening on Saturday (14th February). The victim reportedly asked the rowdy women to be quiet during the film and in response they assaulted him. There were some reports a glass bottle was used to attack the unnamed man but the cinema denies an implement was used, according to reports in Vanity Fair. The three women in question were escorted from the cinema by police and have allegedly been charged with disorder offences.

'Fifty Shades of Grey' is causing chaos across the UK. Sort of.

With the success of "Fifty Shades", a couple of familiar issues have resurfaced.
Fifty Shades of Grey is currently dominating the North American box office, raking in $81.7 million domestically and $239.7 million globally. Not bad for a film based on glorified Twilight fanfic, right? The movie, which centers around the shy and inexperienced college senior Anastacia Steele and her domineering love interest Christian Grey, went on to break a few records this weekend, including the highest gross for a Presidents' Day weekend opener and the biggest debut for an R-rated flick.
Fifty Shades of Creepy?
Meanwhile, all over the blogosphere, people are raging against the unhealthy relationship patterns that E. L. James' story ostensibly promotes.
Happy Valentine's Day, love birds. Here's the movie situation.
Happy Valentine's Day weekend. Fifty Shades of Grey made $81,7 million. Clearly, despite the fact that noone will admit to having seen the thing, it's enjoying a stellar debut. Because what better way to spend the holiday than to watch a movie about whips, chains and contractually binding relationships with your sweetheart, right?
Apparently Fifty Shades has tapped into some deep-seeded desires in its audience. Or it's just really good marketing.
Fifty Shades, getting a boost from a Valentine's Day opening, was released earlier in the week in 57 foreign markets. It took in an additional $158 million overseas, for a global total of $240 million. It also got a boost from early Thursday night screenings, which made $8,6 million.

Sam Taylor Johnson’s adaptation of E.L.James’ best seller is set to dominated the box office in the US and beyond.
Fifty Shades of Grey looks set to break US box office records already, with early Friday estimates predicting the film to rake in as much as $85 million, according to Variety. The big screen version of the erotic novel opened in cinemas on Friday, just in time for Valentine’s weekend and all those couples looking for a 'romantic' night at the movies.
Christian and Ana in Fifty Shades of Grey
The film is thought to have taken between $26 million-$30 million on Friday alone, with $8.6 million also coming in from Thursday-night grosses, reports Variety, making it Universal’s highest-grossing late night preview ever.
Boyhood takes the top prize at the British Academy Film Awards, Fifty Shades of Grey holds its world premiere in Berlin, and new trailers arrive for Apatow's Trainwreck, the Poltergeist remake, the N.W.A. biopic, Guy Ritchie's The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and the Hitman movie...
Fifty Shadows of Grey held its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival, attended by stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, as well as director Sam Taylor-Johnson and her actor-husband Aaron, plus novelist E.L. James. There have been virtually no press screenings prior to the film's release this weekend.
After all the hype, it's impossible not to expect steam from this adaptation of E.L. James' mommy-porn bestseller, but the average episode of Red Shoe Diaries is friskier than this movie. Still, it's a well written and played drama, building an unusual romance with a series of scenes that are sometimes sexy but never actually transgressive. And the nicest surprise is that in the hands of director Sam Taylor-Johnson it becomes a witty tale of female empowerment.
It's set in the American Northwest, where Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) is finishing her studies as an English literature major when she's asked by her journalist roommate Kate (Eloise Mumford) to interview Seattle's most eligible bachelor, billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). Ana's awkwardly confident approach immediately gets under his skin, and he pursues her as if she's a corporate acquisition, complete with non-disclosure agreements and a contract that would make her submissive to his dominant. But she isn't so sure about all of this, and as she falls for him, she begins to make him break his own rules. Of course he thinks she should be punished for that.
Essentially, this film is mere foreplay, as the push and pull between Ana and Christian cycles through various set-pieces on the way to an ending that is clearly designed to get fans in a lather for films based on the second and third novels in the trilogy. And the studio would be wise to keep Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr Banks, another story of male-female control) on board, as they have clearly beefed up James' novel with a strong dose of wry humour, bringing out the deeper themes rather than focussing on the under-developed plot and characters.

Despite being the lead male in one most highly-anticipated erotic film of all time, the Irish actor still suffers from "massive hang-ups" about his body.
Jamie Dornan's latest role sees him play kinky billionaire Christian Grey in the film adaptation of E. L. James's bestselling erotic novel 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' and even though he spends most of the movie stripping off, the Irish actor still isn't totally secure with his body.

Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson recently admitted she had - and occasionally still has - doubts about accepting the starring role in the soon-to-be-released movie.

Who knew they made Lego handcuffs?
With just under a week to go until Fifty Shades of Grey hits cinemas, eager fans might need a little something to help them unwind from all the excitement. Something like, lets say, an awesome parody in which the film’s entire trailer is reenacted using Lego!
Yes stop-motion animators Antonio and Andrea Toscano have created the trailer for fans on Youtube, as part of their series which has also seen Lego reimaginings of Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
When reserved college girl Anastasia Steele meets mysterious businessman Christian Grey for an interview, she ends up feeling rather foolish, fearing that she's messed up the opportunity. Mr. Grey doesn't see it that way however; on the contrary, he develops a strong romantic fixation with her. Anastasia is flattered, but soon realises that this guy isn't the sort to take her to take her out for romantic meals or shower her with gifts. Nonetheless, he is an enigmatic presence in her life that she cannot hope to resist, and she soon finds herself treading deeper and deeper into this man's life. As their relationship progresses, he reveals his unusual sexual desires which involves Anastasia signing a written document in order to give him permission to do whatever he likes with her. Enchanted and seduced by the sense of unknown that lies ahead, she agrees.
The former face of Dolce and Gabbana passed on the chance to bring Christian Grey to life on the big screen.
Model David Gandy may not have made the leap from the runway to Hollywood yet, but that hasn’t stopped some high profile acting offers coming the 34 year old’s way. Speaking to Square Mile magazine Gandy revealed that he turned down the chance to play Christian Grey in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie because the part just ‘didn't feel right’.
The smouldering David Gandy could have been Christian Grey
“I was offered Fifty Shades of Grey, 300:2, Hercules, which a lot of people probably would have taken as actors but I’m in the fortunate position where I like what I’m doing,” Gandy told the magazine. Adding that he doesn’t, “feel the need to act.”
Fifty Shades of Grey is pretty damn sexy.
Fifty Shades of Grey has 20 minutes of sex scenes, meaning it will be the raunchiest mainstream movie for over 10 years. According to the Sunday Times, one-fifth of the film will be made up of sexual scenes - this despite director Sam Taylor-Johnson claiming it was more "romantic".

It is one of the most anticipated movies of 2015 - but of the hype surrounding Fifty Shades of Grey centers on how Sam Taylor-Johnson has chosen to depict the racier passages from E.L James' book.
