Jamie Dornan Fifty Shades of Grey - H 2014

At the London premiere, author E.L. James admitted it had been "very, very difficult" to hand over control to Sam Taylor-Johnson

If there's one person in the world unlikely to be complaining about the lack of on-screen sex in Fifty Shades of Grey, it's the wife of Jamie Dornan, who the star says is unlikely to be watching his performance as a suave billionaire with a penchant for nipple clamps.

"She hasn't seen the film and I don't think she will, to be honest," the 32-year-old told The Evening Standard newspaper at the London premiere of the film on Thursday. "I'd understand if she didn't want to."

Speaking on the red carpet - which was actually grey for the event - Dornan revealed that it wasn't only his wife who might feel uncomfortable at the film.

"I think there's some stuff where family and friends will never have seen that side of me before, but it wasn't enough to make me not want to do it."

Also at the premiere, the book's author E.L. James spoke about the now-famed creative clashes she had with director Sam Taylor-Johnson, admitting it was "very very difficult" to hand her the reins.

"I had to honor the fandom and there are some ideas where I thought, 'no, the Red Room does need to be red,' so I fought for the story because of the fans," she said.
