The Northern Irish hunk had one choice word to say about the rumours his wife wasn’t letting him do any more 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' movies.
Ever since Fifty Shades Of Grey hit cinemas on Valentines Day the film and its cast and crew have the subject of rumours concerning who is and isn’t onboard for the planned sequels. But one star who’s no longer staying silent on the rumours is Christian Grey himself, Jamie Dornan, who described talk of his wife banning him from future Fifty Shades movies as ‘total bollocks’.
Jamie Dornan has spoken out over rumours his wife doesn't want him to return as Christian Grey
In an interview with the Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye Dornan said, “The idea was that we honour the trilogy and do all three.” So then what about those rumours that his wife Amelia Warner wanting him to pull out of the steamy sequels?
The controversial film has already been banned in Indonesia, Malaysia and Kenya, and a refusal was also expected from the mainly conservative India.
Despite conquering box offices wherever it goes, it seems that Indian fans of E.L. James’ erotic novel won’t get the chance to enjoy the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey after the country’s government censors banned it.
According a report by Reuters, India’s Central Board of Film Certification decided that the film was unsuitable for theatrical release in the largely conservative country, a verdict that most onlookers had anticipated.
The Board’s chief executive Shravan Kumar has not stated the precise reasons why they have taken the decision to prevent the film from being screened, but said the distributor Universal Pictures would be allowed to appeal.

Rumours that the Irish hunk wouldn’t reprise his role as Christian Grey had sent fans into a frenzy on social media.
A representative for Jamie Dornan has denied reports that the actor has pulled out of any future Fifty Shades of Grey movies, after rumours circulated saying he’d ‘walked away’ from the burgeoning franchise.
Could Jamie really be leaving Christian Grey behind?
Speaking to E! News, a rep for Dornan tried to quash the rumours saying, ”All press reports are pure conjecture as the studio has not committed to a sequel as yet.”
Despite a huge dive in attendance numbers, the much talked-about movie stays at the top of the box offices for a second week.
Erotic blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey held on to its spot at the top of the box office, despite seeing a massive drop in ticket sales. Receipts of $23.3 million were reported by the L.A. Times, down a whopping 73% from its first weekend.
A decline was of course expected, but the figure is at least 30% less than most projections for its second weekend. When it opened in time for the extended Valentine’s Day and Presidents Day weekend last Friday (February 13th), it took a mammoth $94.4 million.
With Sam Taylor-Johnson reportedly wanting out of directing the upcoming sequels, is author E.L. James set to write the screenplays?
Fifty Shades of Grey might be continuing its domination of the box office this weekend, but it seems that announcing the film’s sequels has become a much trickier business for studio Universal.
Earlier this week, The Sun reported that director Sam Taylor-Johnson had pulled out of doing any more Fifty Shades movies, due to her tempestuous relationship with the book's author E.L. James. But while reports of Taylor-Johnson’s departure remains unconfirmed, Variety now writes that the author is gearing up to pen the screenplay for sequel Fifty Shades Darker herself.
