The Co Down actor (34) hit the big time with his role in the salacious films based on the best-selling books.

However, his closest pals have still not seen his most famous performance.

The father-of-one admitted he wouldn't want his buddies to see him acting out the racy scenes the film required.

"I'm just thinking about some of my mates here and I would never want to go to see them in that movie," he told Ryan Tubridy on the Late Late Show.

"It would be no different. Why would they want to see me like that? None of them have seen it. I think a couple came to the premiere in London, actually, but with wives and girlfriends."

The Fall star also insisted that he has not let global fame go to his head.

"The fame aspect that comes with being a working actor doesn't intrigue me in the slightest," he said.

"I think something like being Irish helps, and my friends. There's just no allowance for it. In your life, no matter what happens or how much notoriety you gain through your work, the fundamentals of your life don't change.

"Your wife, your kids, your family and your friends, all that stuff, the stuff that makes you who you are doesn't change.

"When you go to a premiere and it all seems a bit crazy, it's all very heightened but every day is totally normal.

"It's just a job - you go to work and do your job and then that's it."

Dornan was in Dublin promoting his new World War Two flick Anthropoid.
