Fifty Shades sex scenes no turn-on, says actor Jamie Dornan

By PA Reporters

Fifty Shades Of Grey star Jamie Dornan said filming racy scenes for the film with co-star Dakota Johnson was "not sexy".

The Northern Irish actor appears as billionaire Christian Grey in the big screen adaptation of EL James' erotic novel while Johnson plays Anastasia Steele - the college student he seduces and introduces to the world of sadomasochism.

Dornan said: "Anyone who thinks actors get turned on doing sex scenes in films is mistaken. There are hairy men standing around, moving equipment. That's not sexy unless you're into being watched, which I'm not."

When asked what his wife thought of the scenes, he replied: "She understands that it is work.

"I don't think we will be watching it together too many times, though."
