Christian Grey himself, Jamie Dornan is featured in the February issue of ELLE UK, speaking about the highly anticipated ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ adaptation and comments saying the book and film are anti-feminist.
On the film:
“The love story is more important than the BDSM aspect. I mean, we are going to tell a love story, you know, it can’t just be what happens in the Red Room, that’s not a film. There’s so much more going on than that.”
On if the film is anti-feminist:
“I can understand why people say tying a woman up and spanking her is misogynistic. But actually, more men are submissives than women. Very powerful men. It’s a far bigger scene than I imagined: in pretty much any city in the world that you could name, people want to get spanked with a paddle with studs on it.”
‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ comes to theaters on February 13, 2015 and stars Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Marcia Gay Harding and Rita Ora. The film is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson.
