It’s not easy being Grey. Ahead of the world premiere of ‘Fifty Shades of Gray,’ Christian Grey himself, Jamie Dornan, got personal about his preparation for the sexy role. He also revealed the ways in which he’s getting ready for his life to change– and the surprising friend who is helping him!
Stardom certainly has its perks, but it also has its downfalls too. On the cusp of what will almost definitely be his breakthrough to supertsradom in Fifty Shades of Grey, Jamie Dornan is preparing for the drastic changes that might take place in his life following the film’s release. To help, Jamie turned to someone who knows a little bit about dealing with hordes of fans: Robert Pattinson!
Jamie Dornan’s ‘Fifty Shades’ Preparation: Robert Pattinson Helped
We are just weeks away from the Valentine’s Day release of Fifty Shades of Gray and anticipation for the film is at an all-time high. Fans are already going crazy for Jamie, but the fanfare is only going to get more insane once the movie hits theaters!
“Everyone that I meet, people who run studios or other actors, everybody is saying, ‘Are you ready?'” Jamie told Variety about preparing for the inevitable craziness that is about to swirl around him. One person who knows a thing or two about being the center of a fan craze? Rob Pattinson, who starred in a little franchise you might have heard of called Twilight.
“I’ve been around Rob enough, I’ve seen what it’s been like for him,” Jamie said. So has Rob given Jamie any advice on how to cope? Um, kinda!
“I don’t remember what we talked about the last time I saw him– I think we just got drunk.” Well sometimes that’s the very best way a friend can help!
Drunk On Fame
Speaking of drinking, now that he is known and watched by so many, Jamie is learning the all important rule: don’t drink and Tweet. While in Ireland for Christmas, the actor might have drank one too many vodka shots. “I woke up the next day and I’d seen I’d tweeted the word ‘Christmas,'” Jamie said. “I don’t know if I’d planned on saying more… It made me wish I didn’t know my Twitter password.”
Well, we certainly don’t mind your tipsy tweeting, Jamie.
Are you guys excited for Fifty Shades?
