David Gandy Talks About Jamie
It eventually went to Jamie Dornan, an agreeably incredibly handsome alternative.
Today, perched in a quiet corner of a Mayfair pub at lunchtime, while London's city boys and girls natter and clink in the background, Gandy's now taking a different stance on the rejection.
"Firstly, I appreciated the book…"
Now there's a turnaround. "I read bits of it and whatever critics say," he clutches, "it's incredibly popular with immense power.
"Jamie's a great actor and he'll do the part real justice. It'll be seen by millions and he'll land a number of films from that.
"Difference is, he's been pursuing this. He did the BBC series, [The Fall].
"It's something that Jamie wants and I'm a lot shyer than him. He's a musician, he's gone out with very famous women. Movie stars. He's much more comfortable in that, whereas I'm much more secretive.
"Fifty Shades is going to send him into the stratosphere and I still like to be able to go about my day."
