Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan has branded the celebrity nude photo leak as "disgusting".

The Irish heart-throb condemned the actions of hackers, who leaked photos and indecent videos of more than 100 well known celebrities over the past few days.

Speaking at the GQ Awards in London, Dornan (32) told reporters: "What can you do. It's disgusting. I don't know how they're going to keep control over it but there seems to be so many different ways that your information can be accessed."

"I think the thing to do is just avoid social media if you can. I think that's certainly helps, but that's easier said than done," he added.

Celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton and Ariana Grande had their private pictures hacked and released on a website called 4chan over the past few days.

The images, which were posted on Sunday night, were reportedly accessed due to a targeted attack on celebrities' user names, passwords and security questions.

Dornan was honoured with the Breakthrough Artist Award at the event, which was attended by Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Tony Blair and Johnny Depp, among others.

On winning the award, he told GQ: "Eddie Redmayne won this award last year - six years ago we were whoring our way around LA together.

"We had no scripts, no women in our lives and very little dignity, but we must have done something right. At least in the eyes of GQ."

Jamie will be back on our screens in November when BBC drama The Fall returns for season two.
