Actors would often defend their movie projects especially if they have broad views on the subjects that it would touch. This serves as a familiar ground for actor Jamie Dornan for his film adaptation of EL James' bestselling book series, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Jamie Dornan, who plays the dashing entrepreneur Christian Grey, recently shares that his upcoming film is not misogynistic instead asks for people to focus more on the love story the film has to offer.

The 32-year-old actors tells in his interview with Elle UK that there's more to the story than just erotic fetishes between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, who is played by Dakota Johnson. "The love story is more important than the BDSM aspect. I mean, we are going to tell a love story, you know, it can't just be what happens in the Red Room, that's not a film. There's so much more going on than that," Just Jared quotes.

He also adds that men tend to be more submissive than women in contrary to popular belief that it is the other way around. "I can understand why people say tying a woman up and spanking her is misogynistic. But actually, more men are submissives than women. Very powerful men," he shares in an interview with CBS.

He also confessed that he was not aware on how wide the hidden world of BDSM was before he took the project as he discovered it while doing research to help get himself into the role for the film. "It's a far bigger scene than I imagined: in pretty much any city in the world that you could name, people want to get spanked with a paddle with studs on it," Independent quotes.

Though several fans are expecting that the film adaptation will give the same thrill as the book gave them, many are disappointed on how the film seems to be tamer as presented in its theatrical trailer.
