On a recent episode of BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, Jamie Dornan explained how he handled all the bad reviews when Fifty Shades of Grey premiered in 2015. The Belfast actor said he and his family hid out at a house “in the country” and “shut ourselves off from the world a little bit.”

“I was coming off the back of career-altering reviews for ‘The Fall’ and BAFTA nominations and all the madness ‘The Fall’ brought … to ridicule,” Dornan said.

Thankfully, the director of Fifty Shades of Grey offered him a place where he could get away from it all. “We went down to Sam and Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s place. They weren’t there. They let us have their place in the country and we sort of hid there for awhile and shut ourselves off from the world a little bit,” he said.
