Fifty Shades of Grey


Following the success of her newest book, Grey, author E.L. James held a Twitter Q&A last night, but things didn't exactly turn out as hoped. 

Twitter users took the free-for-all Q&A as an opportunity to express all of their feelings about the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise… and we mean ALL of them. The hashtag #AskELJames saw hundreds of people questioning her skills as a writer and her understanding of domestic abuse.

Many people even chimed in purely to point out what an absolutely terrible idea it was by her PR team to set up the Q&A in the first place. Not all of the tweets were full of aggro though – there were a few funny ones which were too good not to share…



We didn't get to see, erm, too much of Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades of Grey, but that could all be changing in the sequel.

He has apparently been offered £970,000 to go full frontal in Fifty Shades Darker and was told he will have "creative control", whatever that means…

A source told Star magazine: "They're offering Jamie a bonus or $1.5m to do a full-frontal scene in Fifty Shades Darker, and that's just the starting figure."

"Jamie would be crazy not to consider it. They have assured Jamie that it won't be overt, but more of a brief tease – and he'll have some creative control over how it's handled," they said.

We bet his wife won't be too happy, but then again £970,000 is quite a significant amount. 

We will just have to wait and see if he accepts the offer. 

The sequel is due for release on February 10, 2017 and Fifty Shades Freed will be out February 9, 2018. 

The first movie made $248.7 million worldwide.




Jamie Dornan fans, diaries at the ready!

Universal pictures have announced the release dates for Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed.

Fifty Shades Darker will be in cinemas February 10, 2017, and Fifty Shades Freed will be out February 9, 2018.

It was announced yesterday that EL James' husband, Niall Leonard, will write the script for the sequel. 

The first movie made $248.7 million worldwide, so there is no doubt that the sequels are very highly anticipated.

So it looks like Mr Grey won't see us now, but sure we only have to wait two years. Better start booking our tickets.

Oh Christian, we do miss you. 



Sounds like Dakota Johnson needs to take some advice from JK Simmons' acceptance speech and start being a bit nicer to her long-suffering mother!

The Fifty Shades of Grey star, who presented an award at last night's ceremony, walked the red carpet with her actress mum Melanie Griffith, but seemed to forget the cameras were rolling and started acting the maggot in a big way.

Presenter Lara Spencer stopped the pair to ask them a few questions – but it soon became clear Dakota was in no form to chat to a reporter. Things got off to a bad start when Lara referred to the actress as Melanie's "little girl," and it all went downhill from there.

When asked what she thought of the erotic drama Fifty Shades, Melanie admitted that she had chosen not to see the film, saying, "I don't think I can, I think it would be strange," while Dakota kept repeating, "Maybe one day."

Melanie continued to defend her choice by saying, "She [Dakota] is a really good actress…I don't need to see it to know how good she is."

25-year-old Dakota then turned to her mum and snapped  “Alright! You don’t have to see it,” before turning away from the microphone and adding, “Jesus Christ.”

Awkward, much?! Dakota then dug herself into an even bigger hole by saying, "It's a movie. She knows that… I’m like, ‘You can see it!’ and she’s just like, ‘No.’”

We hope the mother and daughter team patched up their differences later in the night!



Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson has reportedly split from her boyfriend Matthew Hitt.

Dakota's man felt her life was getting "too crazy" and thought "it wasn't something he wanted to be a part of," a source tells Us Weekly. 

The split comes just as Dakota's career went into overdrive with the release of her breakout film.

While the actress mentioned Welsh rocker Matthew in a Vogue interview published last month, it's thought the pair split up sometime around Christmas, just as the Fifty Shades publicity really began kicking off.

The film broke February opening weekend records at the US box office, and is already the most successful over 18's film ever in the UK and Ireland.

Given that Dakota's mum, actress Melanie Griffith, refused to see the film, it's no surprise her boyfriend got cold feet, too! However things ended smoothly for the couple, with the source admitting that "it wasn't a bad break."

Dakota doesn't seem too bothered anyway – she has apparently been casually seeing a few people already. Who knows, maybe she'll find her own Christian Grey?!



The Ellen Show has given us a few shocks over the years, from her recent sexy bathroom prank with Justin Bieber to the fact that she actually LIKED Crystal Swing… but her latest endeavour has to be the weirdest yet!

Host Ellen DeGeneres did the unthinkable on her show yesterday and mashed up Disney's new Cinderella trailer with the raciest film of 2015, Fifty Shades of Grey.

The result is funny… but very, VERY weird!



The entire world is talking about Fifty Shades of Grey so it isn't much of a surprise to see men getting in on the action! 

Try telling that to this man though as he tries (unsuccessfully) to avoid the camera and ends up going viral. 

No one will ever know, Sir…! 



It’s finally happened…there has been a Fifty Shades of Grey proposal! As the movie was released on Valentine’s Day, it seems only natural for this couple to get engaged at the cinema!

Nick and Leigh have been together for EIGHT years and now Nick has decided the time is right to ask her to be his wife.

And what better way to do that than to take her completely by surprise with his own trailer before the movie starts? Needless to say, Leigh is completely taken by surprise and it’s just so, so lovely.




While many women across the globe are waiting with baited breath to see Irish actor Jamie Dornan in his role as Christian Grey, there is one woman who isn’t so keen – his wife!

Understandably, Amelia Warner, who has a one-year-old daughter, Dulcie with Jamie won’t be seeing Fifty Shades of Grey, which is said to contain over twenty minutes of sex scenes.

Jamie explained to USA Today: “She doesn’t want to watch this. She wants to support me and my work. I won’t be able to sit there myself. I’m not going to put any pressure on her either way. It’s her decision. She’s well aware that it’s pretend, but it’s probably not that comfortable to watch.”

Jamie’s doubt as to whether he should watch the movie himself stems from a particularly lengthy shot of his bum: “There’s quite a long shot of my [bum]. I wasn’t hugely comfortable with it when I watched it. That’s my bum. Still my bum. Wow.”

You’re right Jamie, that sounds awfully uncomfortable. Awfully, awfully…uncomfortable. 



We've never heard Fifty Shades of Grey read like this before!

The new movie's main star, Jamie Dornan, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon earlier in the week, and he was given a pretty hard task.

Prompted by Jimmy's VERY high-tech Accent Generator, the guys had to do their best at reading excerpts from the famous erotic novel in different accents.

While we loved Jamie's Scottish brogue and his Cowboy twang, his Cork accent was a BIT off the mark – although he did succeed in making it sound kinda sexy!




A new clips has been released for the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie and if steamy is what you’re looking for…then you won’t find it here!

The clips sees Ana (Dakota Johnson) working in a hardware shop when Christian (Jamie Dornan) comes in to buy, erm…hardware bits. You know; rope, cable ties, masking tape, that kind of thing.

It has been reported in the media in recent days that the movie contains over twenty minutes of sex scenes, the most in any movie in over ten years.

If this clip is anything to go by, we’re not going to be holding our breaths for 14th February.  


The hilarious crowd over at Ah Jaysus have put together a montage of Father Ted and Fifty Shades of Grey

In the episode which sparked the forever classic Irish quote: "Careful now. Down with that sort of thing", Ted and Dougal can be seen protesting Fifty Shades of Grey instead of The Passion of Saint Tibulus.

We love it!
