Mr Grey WON'T see you now: Is Jamie Dornan pulling out of the Fifty Shades sequels?

It took a while for fans to warm to the Irishman in the role of their beloved BDSM enthusiast Christian Grey – but they may have to deal with another actor altogether in the movie's upcoming sequels.

Rumour has it that Jamie Dornan has walked away from the steamy blockbuster because his wife, Amelia Warner, is not chuffed about the father of her child acting out such explicit sex scenes.

'Women all over the world now lust after Jamie'

Australian magazine NW has reported that the 32-year-old, who has a 15-month-old daughter with Amelia, will not return as Christian for Fifty Shades Darker or Fifty Shades Freed.

"Jamie said the movie would skyrocket his career," a source told the magazine. "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."

The rumour comes hot on the heels of reports that Jamie and his Fifty Shades co-star, Dakota Johnson, don't see eye-to-eye. The two, who have been lambasted by some critics for their lack of on-screen chemistry, are said to have clashed on set.

“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.”

Jamie took on the role last minute, after Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam quit the film before production started.

"Jamie does not think his performance was bad – instead he blames Dakota and says it wasn’t possible to have chemistry with her," the NZ magazine source said. "Jamie says Dakota gave him nothing to work with."

Setbacks notwithstanding, the controversial S&M movie has raked in big bucks at the box office, having made more than R4,59 billion worldwide so far.
