Jamie Dornan talks about laughing during sex scenes in Fifty Shades Darker

Jamie Dornan didn’t realise he was depressed after his mum’s death

Irish actor Jamie Dornan has described how he tries to make his co-star Dakota Johnson laugh during intimate scenes in their latest film 50 Shades Darker.
Dornan was being interviewed on the Graham Norton show alongside Whoopi Goldberg and Keanu Reeves.

Norton pointed out that despite its title, the new film is actually lighter than Fifty Shades of Grey and more romantic. When asked about the awkwardness of filming sex scenes, Dornan explained how he tried to make Johnson laugh by humming tunes like the Ryanair landing jingle to her during the most intimate moments.

Here’s the clip with some great asides from Reeves and Goldberg.
