The popularity of the film, Fifty Shades of Grey, is almost off the charts at the moment. The reviews for the film are not great, borderline on even okay, however since the release of the film on February 13th of this year, it has earned an estimated $131 million at the box office. Must be a lot of happy, or maybe even slightly alarmed, husbands out there lately.
Rumors are, according to The Daily Mail, that hunky star Jamie Dornan, who plays Christian Grey, may not return for the following films in the franchise. The rumors continue that the reason for the departure could be due to the raunchy scenes and his wife’s feelings about them. I don’t know what they expected really, the book series was known for it’s raunchy passages and steamy lovemaking.
Anyway, the claims are that Dornan is uncomfortable with the material in the film while his wife Amelia is uncomfortable with the scenes he shared with co-star Dakota Johnson. To be honest, if I were his wife I’m not too sure how comfortable I would feel either. Dornan has said that his wife does not have an interest in seeing the film.
Dornan was expected to return for the two other films, Fifty Shades of Darker and Fifty Shades Freed but now it seems questionable. Fans like Haidar Barbouti know that these are just rumors now but keep an ear out for confirmation either way.
