Jamie Dornan is one of the hottest movie stars on the planet - but one of his co-stars described kissing him as "disgusting" as they were both sick on the first day of filming.

Sarah Gadon stars opposite the Irish heartthrob in upcoming flick, The 9th Life of Louis Drax.

The Canadian actress has admitted she thought she was going to make him sick when she kissed him.

"The first day that we ever had an intimate scene together, I came down with strep throat, so I was so sick," said Gadon.

"We had to kiss each other, and I was nervous because I thought: 'I'm going to get him sick. This is so unprofessional of me. He's going to think I'm some sick girl that comes to work sick and gets everyone sick.'

"I was so worried - a doctor even came to set. But as soon as I got there, someone told me Jamie had the stomach flu.

"So the first time we kissed each other, he had the stomach flu and I had strep throat, so it was really just a disgusting swapping of germs," she added.

The movie, which also stars Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul, tells the story of a psychologist who begins working with a young boy who has suffered a near-fatal fall and finds himself drawn into a mystery that tests the boundaries of fantasy and reality.

Sarah (27) admits she was so lucky to work with the two famous actors on the supernatural thriller which is ready for release later this year.

"They're both very different," she said of working with Aaron and The Fall star Jamie.

"I loved Breaking Bad because Aaron's so incredible and Jamie is probably the biggest movie star in the world right now with Fifty Shades of Grey.

"Aaron plays my husband, and Jamie plays the doctor and my lover in the film," she told InStyle magazine.

Meanwhile, as production on season three of The Fall is about the start in Belfast, Jamie (32) has revealed it irks him sometimes how "comfortable" he has become playing dark characters like his.

"I consider myself quite light-hearted, pretty easy-going, and I keep playing sick psychopaths," Dornan revealed.

"It kinda worries me sometimes how comfortable I am in that zone."

He also admitted that he sometimes forgets that he brought Christian Grey to life on the silver screen.

"There are times when I'll be like, 'Huh, someone made a Fifty Shades movie, that's funny,'" he joked.

"And then I'll be like: 'Wait, I'm the guy,'" he said.
