Jamie Dornan Fears He'll Get Murdered By A 'Mad Fan' At The 'Fifty Shades' Premiere

Mark Seliger for Details

"Fifty Shades Of Grey" star Jamie Dornan has certain anxieties about playing Christian Grey in the film adaptation of the erotic romance novel, but it's not for the reasons one might assume. As cover star of Details' February issue, the 32-year-old actor told the magazine he fears he will be killed at the film's premiere in February.

When asked how he'll prepare for the highly-anticipated film's release, Dornan said:

I almost don't want to put this out there into the ether, but I fear I'll get murdered, like John Lennon, by one of those mad fans at the premiere. Because a lot of people are very angry that I'm playing this character. And I'm a father now, and a husband. I don't want to die yet. And when I do get murdered, people will say, 'God, isn't it haunting how he did that interview in Details magazine and predicted his own death on the red carpet?'

It is fair to say that "Fifty Shades" fans were particularly impassioned about the film's casting. When "Sons of Anarchy" star Charlie Hunnam was originally cast for the part of Christian Grey -- before dropping out due to scheduling conflicts in October -- some started a Change.org petition to recast Matt Bomer as Hunnam's replacement. Robert Pattinson and Ian Somerhalder were among other fan favorites for the part, before Dornan was finally cast as the S&M-loving billionaire, leaving some disappointed.
