You may have heard idle chatter — like the radio hosts' conversation in the video below — that Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan watched the entirety of Sex and the City to prepare for his steamy role as the kinky billionaire in the mom-porn film adaptation.
The whole story started when a British tabloid quoted Jamie talking about preparing for sex scenes: "Joe and I watched all the Sex and the City box sets. That helped… We had a ball. It was good [fun]."
But don't believe everything you hear! As E! Online reports, the 31-year-old Irishman was a) joking and and probably hasn't seen every last episode of the HBO hit and b) was referring to his preparation for the British miniseries New Worlds. The Joe in question is Skins star Joe Dempsey, Jamie's co-star in the miniseries.
In any case, we're sure that any SATC that he did watch could only have helped him with his powers of seduction. We'll find out when the movie hits theaters on February 14, 2015.
In the meantime, we gotta wonder: Is Jamie a Carrie? A Charlotte? A Miranda? Oh, this is an underwear model and Fifty Shades actor we're talking about here. He's totally a Samantha.
