Jamie Dornan responds to rumours he is quitting ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

Actor's wife is said to be 'unhappy' about his explicit sex scenes in the hit film

Fifty Shades Of Grey star Jamie Dornan has responded to rumours he is quitting the erotic film franchise.

Over the weekend, Australian magazine NW reported that Dornan is “walking away” from the franchise because his wife – singer and actress Amelia Warner, aka Slow Moving Millie – is apparently unhappy about his explicit sex scenes in the first film, which is based on the blockbuster novel of the same name by EL James.

However, a representative for the actor told MailOnline: “All press reports are pure conjecture as the studio has not committed to a sequel as yet.”

Fifty Shades Of Grey opened in cinemas on February 13 and broke several UK and Ireland box office records in its opening weekend. It has also debuted at Number One in the US, fuelling rumours that Universal Pictures is about to green light a pair of sequels based on James’s follow-up novels.

It has also been reported that director Sam Taylor-Johnson won’t be returning for the sequels after she clashes repeatedly with James, who is said to wield considerable creative control over the adaptation of her novels.

Fifty Shades Of Grey is rated ‘R’ in the US for “strong sexual content and unusual behaviour” and ’18’ in the UK for “strong sex and nudity”. The film’s 100-minute running time includes around 20 minutes of sex scenes.
