'Like a cupcake with no frosting': Jamie Dornan faces beardless backlash for 50 Shades of Grey
Who knew a beard could hold such power?
Fans of 50 Shades of Grey Jamie Dornan have expressed their outrage at his character going beardless in the film adaptation.
The trailer for the movie version of the smash hit novel was officially released yesterday and the main fixation was the fact that Dornan was cleanly shaven.
Fifty Shades of Grey will be (aptly) released on Valentine's Day 2015, but the promotional whirlwind has already begun.
And movie bosses forced the normally bearded star to shave off his trademark facial hair for the title role of Christian Grey.
But not all fans are happy with the decision.
Many took to social media to announce their upset, while Jezebl and Buzzfeed dedicate entire articles to his beard possessing that Je Ne Sais Quoi.
"Jamie Dornan without a beard is like a cupcake without frosting," one wrote on Twitter.
"Jamie Dornan is actually really hot, just not as hot in this movie. Why. He needs a beard," another said.
"If I was Anastasia Steele, and Jamie Dornan kept his beard and Irish accent, 50 Shades would probably be alot better."
