“If it’s a nightmare, we’ll move to Outer Mongolia or something and live in a yurt,” he told the magazine. “I’ve got a lot of s*** together, finally, by age 32. I’m glad I have that all in place when whatever happens, happens.”

Yes the 33 year old Northern Irish hottie does have a lot going for him at the moment, in 2013 he wed stunning actress Amelia Warner and the couple welcomed their first child last November. Speaking about his family life, Dornan described his wife as “dream stuff” and added that he loved fatherhood. "These last couple of years have been quite something. But we're enjoying it,” he said.

But it seems Jamie wasn't always such a big hit with the ladies. “I was very shy. I’m not saying that was the only reason I didn’t do well with them but I just didn’t,” he said of his younger years. “I never had any reason to think I looked different.”

However before he transitioned into acting Dornan was a model, albeit a reluctant one, as he revealed, “I was always quite a reluctant model, to my agent's annoyance," he said. "I was never hugely keen on it or doing it, and in a weird way I didn't do a great deal of it. They happened to be jobs that ended up on the side of buses, but it wasn't this all-consuming thing. I've never done a catwalk show in my life.”
