Dornan: I'm not a fan of my body

He might play fantasy heartthrob Christian Grey and have been voted the world's Sexiest Man - but Jamie Dornan isn't impressed by his own body.

The Northern Irish actor and model, 32, who stars in Fifty Shades of Grey with Dakota Johnson, said he still has a lot of insecurities about himself.

He told the Irish Independent: "I think I am like anyone, I have massive hang-ups about my physical appearance.

"I was a very skinny kid.... Now, I'm 32 ... I have the same insecurities when I was a kid and when I see an image of myself, all I see is this skinny kid and I don't like it."

Jamie added: "No matter how many times you get filmed with your top off and the photographers are saying 'oh, you look great, add more oil', and all that, you have all these things ingrained in your head - insecurities about yourself. All the people in the world saying stuff like this isn't going to alter that."

Meanwhile Jamie's acting skills were put under the spotlight when he appeared on Jimmy Fallon's show in the US.

The Fall star was asked to read a string of saucy lines from the Fifty Shades Of Grey books, in different accents.

Jamie said with a French accent: "Don't get your panties in a twist and give me back mine," and with a Scottish brogue: "I don't remember reading about nipple clamps in the Bible."
