Fifty Shades of Grey: Jamie Dornan Wants to Quit Working on The Fifty Shades Franchise.

According to reports, Jamie Dornan may not appear in the sequel to Fifty Shades of Grey because his wife hated the movie. That means The Fifty Shades franchise may lose its biggest star and leading actor.

Jamie Dornan’s wife, actress Amelia Warner, who has a 15-month old daughter with Dornan expressed her unhappiness about her husband’s role and future performances in the erotic franchise.

Fifty Shades of Grey has become an international box office hit, selling out movie theaters across the United States and UK. But, this has proven to be really stressful on Jamie Dornan’s marriage. According to Australian magazine NW, a source reports that Dornan was interested in the movie role since it would boost acting career.

Jamie said the movie would skyrocket his career. He tried to assure Amelia nothing would change but women all over the world now lust after Jamie. She hasn’t seen the film and I don’t think she will to be honest.’

But, there are also reports suggesting that Dornan hated working with Dakota Johnson and performing several of the scenes in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

“It wasn’t like they had screaming rows on set; it was more just uncomfortable,” a source divulged to British magazine Grazia. “There are rumours Dakota felt Jamie was pretentious and wasn’t throwing himself into the role enough. And apparently Jamie thought she was unfriendly, had too much attitude and took herself too seriously.” – Grazia

Fifty Shades of Grey

If Jamie Dornan does leave the Fifty Shades franchise, he will not be alone. Last week the director of the Fifty Shades of Grey quit the franchise. Johnson reportedly dropped of the flick after having a “toxic relationship” with the series author, E.L. James.

“E.L. James wants the movie to match the book exactly, but Sam has a different perspective. Sam is reminding E.L. she writes books and she makes movies. This has caused some tension between the two of them.”
