Ladies and gentleman, Jamie Dornan and Matt Bomer!!!!
Let us take a moment and kindly admire these two beautiful sexy men!!! 😆 And this is also one of my favorite photo of Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. She is gorgeous and stunning in so many levels! This picture to me, is the perfect description of who Ms. Steele really is!
And PS! This is not a comparison post. This is merely a dedication about how much I love these two men! Ok, maybe a little rant too. Also, don’t you wish these three should make a movie or something? The perfect love triangle! haha! (yea maybe I’m the only one who thinks that way! 😕)
This is all for Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson and Matt Bomer fans, and of course the root of it all, the whole fandom of E.L.James; Fifty Shades of Grey Series.
I knew about Matt Bomer first because of his brief appearance in the movie ‘In Time’ with Justin Timberlake, for those of you who saw the movie. I already fell in love with his charm and his charisma as an actor just by merely watching him in the first 15 minutes of the movie. I already thought he was cute then. Something about men with grayish blue eyes! 😊 After that, I started watching him as he became Neal Caffrey in the TV show ‘White Collar.’ He blew me away on how much he developed as an actor and of course, he is not just “cute” anymore. He became more hot, masculine and sexy as hell, especially with the way he expresses himself through those eyes….those amazing eyes!
When the news broke out that Fifty Shades will be made into a movie, I was through the roof ecstatic because although I am a new follower in this huge fandom (literally just read it over the summer…I know I’m late!!!), I had developed a strong desire as a fan to see Christian and Anastasia’s unconventional love story come to life I n the big screen. You see, some people might think you just read erotic novels like these because of the sexual desires and kinky situations, but its different for me. I blame my hopeless romantic self!! 💘 I am a sucker for any sappy, cliche and predictable love stories. I read all of Nicholas Sparks’s novels and he is one of my favorite authors mainly because of the romance department. So when I read FSOG, despite of all the graphic and erotic depiction of sex and the whole BDSM scenario, I fell in love with not just in Christian’s outside appearance, but mostly in his ability to learn to fall in love, for the first time! Inspite of all that is bad and evil depicted in his dark character, he was able to show his gentleness, in how much he wanted to change himself to be a better man for Anastasia, inspite of his sad cruel past and upbringing. I love the fact that he would do pretty much everything to keep her by his side. Cliche? Sappy? Hopeless romantic? Whatever it is, I couldn’t help myself! That’s what sold me to reading all three books.
When I heard about Charlie Hunnam playing the role of Christian, I couldn’t help but ponder that in my personal opinion, after reading the books, I can’t picture Charlie as Christian. He just seemed more of a Gideon Cross to me ( totally different post in the future lol) after reading the description of Gideon Cross from Sylvia Day’s Crossfire series.
E.L.James described Christian’s outside appearance to have broad shoulders and muscular TONED body, but she didn’t say that he was huge and have muscles bulging everywhere, which was Charlie to me. After reading ‘Bared to You’ and the description of how Gideon Cross might look like, Charlie Hunnam came to mind. (just my opinion…I know some of you might disagree)
Moving on to my main point, when I heard Charlie dropped the role to be the infamous billionaire Mr. Grey, Matt Bomer’s name keep popping up because apparently, a lot (if not most) of the FSOG fandom wants him to be Christian Grey. To be honest, in the beginning, I tried picturing Matt as Christian and the spark is definitely there. The idea and the concept of it is definitely present, but it wasn’t quite there yet ( if you guys know what I mean.) Don’t get me wrong, Matt Bomer is definitely CG material. He’s hot, he’s sexy, he looks freaking awesome in a suit and oh…those eyes? Yes, he is indeed beautiful! Anyways, the whole Matt Bomer as Christian Grey phenomena became a trendable topic which made crazy and over enthusiastic fans out there to create YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram and other social media accounts, dedicated solely to Matt Bomer, and how much they all think he IS AND SHOULD BE Christian Grey. (shouty capitals to make my point…I know!) HOWEVER, as much as we all know how perfect he is and I don’t mind the idea of him being CG, something is quite missing ( I can’t really point my finger to it at the time) but I JUST KNOW. Having read the books a couple times now, when I think of Christian Grey, I picture someone else. Someone who is as equally gorgeous and beautiful as Matt, but more mysterious but seriously sexy. Someone innocent and tame yet wild and 50 shades of fucked up. Someone who comes off as an “arse” and a domineering i-can-do-what-i-want-with-you-and-you’ll-obey-me kind control freak, yet someone who is deeply broken and wounded inside.
Then Jamie Dornan came to the scene. I immediately and I’m not even kidding when I say this…I was mesmerized. 😍 I never knew who he was…never knew his work as an actor or model and never knew he was Irish either (his accent melts my heart, I could hear him talk for hours and hours and I would not get bored! lol) I never knew he was the huntsman/the sherrif in ‘Once upon a time.’ When I found out that Jamie is now the new Christian Grey, after Charlie dropped out, I started looking him up and watching his shows and looking at photos when he was modeling. I didn’t even wait for anything to sink in or process. There is no doubt in my mind and I truly believe it that Jamie Dornan IS the perfect depiction of our famous billionaire magnate…Mr. Mercurial himself…Ana’s one and only love, in all of his Fifty Shades of fuckedupness glory!
I was definitely sold. I find him to be so adorable, and hot and sexy all at the same time! ( nobody should be that good looking…touché Ms. Steele) 😜 He has the perfect body to be CG, he doesn’t need to be overly muscular. He has perfect toned muscles already…and that jawline is to die for! Clean shaved or scruffy…he is perfect!!! And those eyes, those burning gray eyes and that stare…filled with secrets and mystery. Totally Christian Grey, totally our Fifty, in the flesh!
Now I know some of you think Dakota Johnson is not the perfect Anastasia Steele. At first, I pictured Ana to be petite, since Christian is always lifting her chin up every time he wants to kiss her and that he always hovers over her. Plus, I think tall guys and short girls are so perfect together!!! (or is it just me??? lol) Anyways, referring to the book, I really thought Ana was more of a petite girl, natural curvy body and beautiful brown locks. Besides her beautiful bright blue eyes, Dakota didn’t come to mind at all. But after looking at their first photos together as Christian and Ana from the Entertainment Weekly magazine, you can kinda tell that there is definitely sparks between them. They way he looks at her, they way she looks at him. Since then, she kinda grew on me and I started to think that she has the Ana Steele potential.
Bottom line, as a new but very avid fan, I do believe in Jamie and Dakota and how they will depict their characters in the movie. I read a review from E! news that they both have really great chemistry and they do genuinely like each other on and off screen. To me, that is very important. As actors trying to portray themselves as two people who are madly in love with each other, to make that believable, you have to have that natural tendency to be insanely attracted to each other. Although they are both happy in their individual relationships, and I know they are just doing their jobs, I love the fact that they can both look at each other with such intensity. Like professional actors, in our naked eyes, they are able to portray those characters that are completely and madly in love with each other just by a mere touch or even just a simple gaze. ( oh and those BTS photos of Jamie gently holding Dakota…in his own little way, to me it was so romantic the way he holds her! And the way they smile at each other, I feel like they’re not even acting anymore! 😍)
Although, in my hopeless romantic heart, is it crazy that I am hoping that by the time this movie is finished, I do hope that they will end up falling for each other (though it might seem as if they are just doing that to promote the movie to create more buzz…which most actors tend to do) I couldn’t help myself but wish that they could get together somehow (sorry…I know Jamie is married with a baby and Dakota has a boyfriend…its just my thoughts…NO HATE!)
And to end this note….I have to say, this made me more enthusiastic about this pairing and it made me more restless and impatient because I know all of you guys can’t wait for this movie to be released. I really can’t contain my happiness just looking at their behind the scenes photo. February 2015 needs to hurry the hell up!!!!! TeamJamie❤Dakota
