So much for NSFW: Jamie Dornan found a kinky bit of the ol' nasty was perfectly suitable for his work on "50 Shades of Grey."
He got lucky. It's not every occupation that considers a sex dungeon as an appropriate place to conduct research.
"I went there, they offered me a beer, and they did ... whatever they were into," the 32-year-old British actor told Elle UK about his educational field trip ahead of playing the movie's sexual-sadist lead. "I saw a dominant with one of his two submissives."
Like when a company's top honcho decides to chat up one of the cubicle dwellers?
Um, not exactly: "I was like, 'Come on, guys, I know I'm not paying for this, but I am expecting a show.'" he said. "It was an interesting evening."
Still, Dornan — who apparently thinks selfies are an "epidemic," babies are "heaven" and naked mole-rats are "sexy" — tried not to take his work home with him.
"Going back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards ... I had a long shower before touching either of them."
Well played, sir. Well played.
