Jamie Dornan in recent weeks has been a regular name in the media headlines as entertainment publications continue to make claims that the star of “50 Shades of Grey” and his wife Amelia Warner are on their way to divorce. For some entertainment fans and observers on social media this is part of the tribulations that come along with being the star of a franchise film such as “50 Shades of Grey” which is a box office hit and receives massive marketing exposure.
The actor has been filming his new movie “Anthropoid” in the Czech Republic and if one were to believe some of the reports they would assume that he is flirting and trying to get to know almost every attractive woman in the Czech Republic even though he has been seen walking through the streets of Prague with his wife. Interestingly it is this type of scrutiny that scared off the first choice for the film, Charlie Hunnan of “Sons of Anarchy” fame because he did not want the overwhelming attention that Jamie Dornan is now dealing with.
When an actor wins the leading role in a franchise film such as “50 Shades of Grey” one of the things that coincides with the fame is the reality that everything they might do is magnified. Posing for pictures with fans can be turned into the actor trying to date the fan or even being accused of being promiscuous.
Jamie Dornan’s career is reaching new heights as fans follow his new films and actions because of his popularity as the star of “50 Shades of Grey” but his fame also shows the downside of becoming a celebrity as one loses the option of being able to do anything in public without it becoming a major topic of discussion.
