Jamie Dornan has defended his new movie

Jamie Dornan does not think Fifty Shades of Grey is anti-feminist. 

The 32-year-old actor stars as Christian Grey in the eagerly-awaited film adaptation of the best-selling novel by E L James and has claimed the film's love story is just as important as the erotic aspects of the script. 

He told Elle UK magazine: "I can understand why people say tying a woman up and spanking her is misogynistic. But actually, more men are submissives than women. Very powerful men. It's a far bigger scene than I imagined. The love story is more important than the BDSM aspect. I mean, we are going to tell a love story, you know, it can't just be what happens in the Red Room, that's not a film. There's so much more going on than that." 

Jamie previously admitted to visiting a private dungeon as research for Fifty Shades of Grey. He revealed that the show was held at the home of a man who later became the movie's advisor on kinkiness.

The Fall actor explained: "I went there, he offered me a beer, and they did... whatever they were into. I saw a dominant with two submissives, and he became our kink advisor on the film."

Fifty Shades of Grey is set for release in February.
