When word spread that Jamie Dornan was cast as Christian Grey in the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades Of Grey, it sparked controversy among diehard fans of the book.

But would anyone go so far as to physically harm the 32-year-old actor?!
That's what the Irish stud seems to think.
He said in the February issue of Details magazine:
"I almost don't want to put this out there into the ether, but I fear I'll get murdered, like John Lennon, by one of those mad fans at the premiere… Because a lot of people are very angry that I'm playing this character. And I'm a father now, and a husband. I don't want to die yet."
Woah there, Jamie! You're getting a bit paranoid!
Rest assure, the former Calvin Klein model was just joking.
He even added:
"And when I do get murdered, people will say, 'God, isn't it haunting how he did that interview in Details magazine and predicted his own death on the red carpet?'"
Let's just hope when the movie does premiere, there will be tons of security!
