Editors at British newspaper The Sun report Dornan filmed extensively for Cooper's new movie Burnt, which is about a hot-headed chef who starts a restaurant in Paris, France.

The Irish actor even featured in the trailer and posters for the film, but has allegedly now been edited out due to his role as Christian Grey in the erotic drama.

Dornan played Cooper's rival in the film, and is even believed to have trained specifically as a chef for the role.

A spokesman for the film says: "Jamie's role was a small cameo that was part of a back story and following the editing process is no longer part of the film."
