“Fifty Shades of Grey” fans are excited to see their favorite parts of the book come to life. But some parts will be left out of the film adaptation — such as Christian Grey’s private parts. Sorry, ladies, it looks like the X-rated details will be left to the imagination, according to actor Jamie Dornan.
Though recent pictures from the set highlighted a certain bulge in Dornan, the actor had it in his contract that no one could see his “todger,” in British slang terms. “There were contracts in place that said that viewers wouldn’t be seeing my, um … yeah, my todger,” Dornan told the Guardian.
That doesn’t mean the film won’t contain any sex. After all, “Fifty Shades of Grey” is a film about a young woman named Anastasia (Dakota Johnson) who is introduced to the world of BDSM by powerful CEO Christian Grey. However, Dornan clarified that the rendition will be tasteful.
“You want to appeal to as wide an audience as possible without grossing them out,” Dornan said. “You don’t want to make something gratuitous, and ugly, and graphic.”
While Dornan didn’t say that they cut out all of the book’s naughty scenes, he implied that it wouldn’t be too explicit. “Sam [Taylor-Johnson, the director] is a very bright woman, so there might be some suggestive elements to it,” Dornan said. “But I haven’t seen it at this stage, so it is hard for me to say. I’m aware of what we shot, and it wasn’t as if we shot a film without any action.”
Author E.L. James earlier this year assured fans the film wouldn't be too tame either. “What I’ve seen hasn’t been particularly watered down, so, um, yeah. I thought it was interesting,” she said, laughing, on the "Today" show.
However scandalous the film ends up being, Dornan mentioned that he was sure he and his wife -- former actress Amelia Warner -- wouldn’t be watching it repeatedly. “She understands that it is work … I don’t think we will be watching it together too many times at home, though.”
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is scheduled to open across the U.S. on Feb. 13, 2015. Are you disappointed that the movie might be censoring some of the naughty scenes? Sound off in the comments section below!
