Jamie Dornan has praised his wife for giving him the green light to sign up for his saucy 50 Shades Of Grey role.

The Fall star plays Christian Grey in the new Sam Taylor-Johnson movie, based on the erotic novels by EL James.

Jamie told OK! magazine that when he told his wife Amelia Warner he had been offered the part, she was pregnant with their 14-month-old daughter.

"My wife is a brilliant, hugely understanding person," he told the mag.

"She was an actress for 10 years, so she's aware of what it's like.

"A lot of people would have had a ... fit at 30-something weeks pregnant hearing, 'Darling, we're going to Vancouver this week for four months - we're going to have a Canadian baby and I'm going to do a film where, for parts of it, I will be naked.'

"That's a tough pitch, but my wife is an incredible person."

Meanwhile Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele, the student Christian seduces, told US Vogue that she was frightened about becoming more famous.

"I think about my dwindling anonymity," she said, "and that's really scary because a very large part of me would be perfectly happy living on a ranch in Colorado and having babies and chickens and horses -which I will do anyway."

The actress said she planned to not do any more movies during the rest of the year after publicising the new film.

"I do a bit of press for Fifty, and then I'm just going to take the rest of the year off. I want to hang out with my friends. I want to hang out with my family - well, I sometimes want to hang out with my family!"
