Jamie Dornan has added his voice to the ongoing conversation about the objectification of famous men.
The ‘Fifty Shades’ actor, who is reprising his role as Christian Grey in next year’s sequel ‘Fifty Shades Darker’, tells Vanity Fair he feels that there are moments he has felt sexualised on the film’s set.
Jamie also discusses what some have seen as a disparity between the amount of female nudity on screen compared to men in the industry.
“But there’s plenty of male genitalia on show. Orlando Bloom did it today without even needing to. But I understand why. There’s more of an active taste for women to take their clothes off and be seen as a sex object. That can be gratuitous and I don’t agree with that.”
Kit Harington of ‘Game Of Thrones’ raised eyebrows earlier this year when he made remarks saying he thought there was a “double standard” towards men in the acting world.
Back in May, he complained: “I like to think of myself as more than a head of hair or a set of looks. It’s demeaning. Yes, in some ways you could argue I’ve been employed for a look I have. But there’s a sexism that happens towards men.”
Ryan Gosling, meanwhile, has taken a rather different approach, insisting: “It’s our time as men to be on the receiving end of the stick. I grew up with women so I’ve always been aware of it.”
