Whereas Dornan admitted the eroctic nature of the story wasn't too much of a shock, "I'm a fairly worldly guy," the 31-year-old said. "I grew up in a very liberal place. I'm not saying we had a playroom, but I'm not shocked by [the sex in the book]. It's essential to tell the story. I can't believe films that don't invoke the sexual side of it. So it works for me."
