Fifty Shades' Jamie Dornan: "I Don’t Think I'll Ever Be As Famous As Keira Knightley"
Jamie and Keira dated for two years...
Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan has revealed he doesn’t think he’ll ever be as famous as his ex-girlfriend Keira Knightley.
“That scrutiny when you’re older will be easier to take. And I don’t think I’m ever going to be as famous as her,” he told the Evening Stanard, recalling his time in the spotlight with the Pirates of the Caribbean star.
“It was a strange environment to find yourself in, being hounded and followed. It’s really hideous,” he remembered of the attention he received at the time.
“F***ing hell, (the paparazzi) are cretins. I couldn’t have less respect for those guys. There are so many ways to make a living that don’t involve hiding in bushes opposite houses of 18-year-old girls with a camera in your hand.
And Jamie said of his role in the upcoming Fifty Shades movie, where he’ll play the steamy Christian Grey alongside Dakota Johnson as Anastasia: “I certainly don’t fear it. I already got a glimpse into working with Sam at the (screen) test, and I’d met Dakota by then. So I had an idea of how I felt it would be if I got the part. None of it scared me.”
