Dakota and I will be friends for life after 50 Shades, reveals Jamie Doran
Forget the rumours of tensions on the Fifty Shades of Grey set – Jamie Dornan says he’ll be friends for life with co-star Dakota Johnson
And despite all the craziness surrounding the project, he claimed the “main core” of his life would remain the same.
The 32-year-old Northern Irish actor said: “I always say this, at the core, nothing’s going to change in my life. I’m married, I have a baby.”
The rising star was speaking as Fifty Shades Of Grey mania hit fever pitch at the film’s Berlin premiere.
Screaming fans scrambled to get a selfie on the red carpet with stars Dornan and Johnson, who play Christian Grey and his lover Anastasia Steele.
The hotly-anticipated big screen adaptation of the X-rated book has failed to get critics hot under the collar but is expected to be a hit at the box office, with some theatres sold out ahead of its opening.
Speaking on the red carpet, Johnson (25) said: “My expectations? I don’t have any, I just hope that people like the movie.”
Asked why there were so many women at the premiere, the American replied: “Have you seen Jamie?”
She also blasted claims that her character is subjected to abuse in the movie, calling it a “close-minded outlook”.
“No person is abused in the movie,” she added.
Taylor-Johnson, who was on the red carpet with her actor husband Aaron Taylor-Johnson, said that although there are three books in the Fifty Shades series, a sequel for the film is yet to get the green light from movie bosses.
“It’s not official. I can imagine they are waiting to see how this one does,” the 47-year-old English director said.
Author EL James, who has found fame with the Fifty Shades book trilogy, was also in attendance.
