Fifty Shades Freed, the third and final film in the Fifty Shades trilogy, is hitting theaters this weekend, and star Jamie Dornan – who plays Christian Grey – is making the rounds on the talk show circuit to promote the movie that is expected to dominate the box office.
This past week, Dornan had fun with Late Late Show host James Corden in a fantastic spoof, told a British TV show that he was “too old” to be in any more Fifty Shades movies, and explained to Elle Magazine why he’s never gone full frontal.
The erotic movie franchise is well-known for its explicit sex scenes, but Dornan has never bared it all for the cameras. Instead, he has always worn a modesty pouch to cover his most private area.
Dornan says that it wasn’t ever necessary for him to show audiences every part of him, but he isn’t sure if he ever said no to the idea.
“I just thought, ‘We don’t need to be flashing the rest if it’s not essential to the story’. We’re not making porn as much as people think we are,” explained the 35-year-old.
Rumors had surfaced that he turned down an extra $1 million to go all the way, but Dornan denies that ever happened. He added that he shows his ass a lot on screen, and that doesn’t bother him.
He also said that his co-star Dakota Johnson – who plays Anastasia Steele – bares her breasts quite a bit, and if he had them, he would have done the same.
Now that the third film is coming out, there have been reports that more movies could be in the works since author E.L. James rewrote the first two books from Christian’s perspective. But Dornan says that he and Johnson are both done with the roles, and at this point, he is too old to play the character anymore.
In one of his funnier promotional appearances for the film, Dornan filmed a hilarious scene with Corden where the talk show host showed him his secret playroom.
Parodying lines from the first film Fifty Shades of Grey, Corden reminded Dornan “It’s important that you know you can leave at any time.”
When they opened the door, instead of entering a dungeon filled with BDSM sex toys, Corden’s playroom was a train nerd’s paradise, and he told Dornan to call him “signalmaster.”
The two then put on overalls, bandanas, and conductor hats and proceeded to play with Corden’s magnificent train set while erotic music played in the background.
The two then got close and sensually touched one another as their trains whistled and flew around the track. Fifty Shades Freed is in theaters now.
