On February 7th, 2017, the second stop along the Fifty Shades Darker premier tour took us to Hamburg, Germany where the stars graced the red carpet looking nothing but their best.
With fans lined up along the barriers of the carpet, the stars, co-stars and fellow celebrities graced us with high fashion, warm smiles and more photos and picture-ops than we could have anticipated.
Dakota shimmered in a a black, floor length, thigh high slitted dress by Saint Laurent complete with a luscious red lip. Jamie looked dapper, as always, in a suit ensemble by Neil Barrett, beard perfectly coiffed for the evening’s festivities.
After posing for pictures, signing autographs and taking photos with fans, it was off to Madrid, Spain for the third stop on a very energetic premier schedule.
Los Angeles went Darker on February 2nd, 2017 when the stars of E L James’ hotly anticipated sequel to her Fifty Shades of Grey franchise attended the North American premier of Fifty Shades Darker.
It was the type of night Mr. Grey would expect you to be on your best behaviour for, all gussied up in Caroline Acton with just the right accessories. A masquerade ball mask, for instance.
Fans of the franchise got an opportunity to recreate the opulent and saturated masquerade ball ceremony when they were invited to attend the lavish event in LA. Fans from all over the world came to meet their #FiftyFamily and indulge in an all-out girls night. Complete with music from José James (the vocalist and band featured at the ball in the film) hors-d’oeuvres, elegant buffet, dancing, photo booths and more, the night was as magical as it is portrayed in James’ telling of the story.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson along with director James Foley and author E L James, stepped onto the stage to present the movie and share their thoughts on how the growth between films is something fans will not be disappointed with. James, more enthusiastic than we’ve seen her in a long time, spoke about her excitement surrounding Darker and how confident she is that the fans will be satiated. “We nailed it,” she exclaims, throwing her fists in the air as if securing a victory.
While everyone looked spectacular, all eyes were on Jamie and Dakota.
Dakota illuminated the room in a blush pink gown by Valentino with a plunging neckline from the Spring 2017 collection. Her co-star, Dornan, rocked the same designer while sporting Louboutin shoes.
The pair compliment each other well – laughing and giggling, whispering some inside jokes to each other, they without a doubt have developed a friendship and trust that will expand beyond their years as Christian and Ana.
One premier down and it’s off to Hamburg, Germany for premier number two.
It was an incredible and exciting night. We were given the opportunity to attend the Masquerade Ball and movie premier in Los Angeles, California on February 2nd. Wearing our evening dresses and carrying our masks, we arrived 20 minutes before the venue opened at Vibiana. When we went to collect our tickets at the Will Call desk we were given a choice of the Samantha Peach masks in either cream or silver such as the one Ana wears. There was also a black one like Christian’s which I wish I had chosen instead. I went with the cream one since I already was gifted the silver one.
We didn’t have to wait long in line to enter and it was nice to chat with other people attending the ball and seeing everyone in their fabulous dresses. Once we entered the venue there were waiters in black masks and tuxes on each side of us with hors d’oeuvres and champagne. Inside the venue they had several activities to occupy our time and entertain us. It was all decorated beautifully with red velvet couches, white roses and candles.
One of the most fun things was the Virtual Reality experience where we got to view Christian’s apartment and then were invited to the Masquerade Ball. It was amusing watching the people ahead of us using the Oculus VR headset but once it was placed on my head I understood why people where spinning, smiling and stumbling around. During the experience we were greeted by Mia and then Ana and Christian who when we walked in with him, acknowledged that we were there. It was surreal!
We had the opportunity to have our palm read or to do a tarot card reading. I chose the palm reading since I never had done it before. There were several tables set up with readers and was one of the most popular activities. Staci’s entire session was recorded. I’m hoping we see her on the DVD or such.
Sipping on champagne and eating pastries we waited in line to do the 360 video with Ana and Christian in the background. It was also a great opportunity to meet a few people and take pics of them with Pocket Jamie, who was a hit. While waiting, NBC Today Show’s Natalie Morales partook in the 360 picture. I even snapped a pic of Pocket Jamie with Natalie in the background. I didn’t care for my picture because it wasn’t explained that it was only going to be one picture instead of multiple pics but it was still pretty cool and the video was great quality.
A delicious buffet table was set up with lamb chops, Sea Bass, and two types of salad. There was also a desert table with macaroons, brownie bites and lemon tarts which we enjoyed while listening to the band that is actually featured in the movie and Eric Johnson who plays Jack Hyde came in to mingle with the crowd. I think he was a bit overwhelmed about the response he got from the fans because he was quickly bombarded but it was nice to see that he was genuinely pleased to be there.
Set up on the right side was a green screen where we were able to take a picture with Ana and Christian and it was printed instantly for us as a souvenir. Wish I had waited because Staci chose that moment to got to the ladies’ room and Jamie himself passed right by her since they were doing press in a tent outside of the venue. Knowing this I knew that the cast would be entering soon so we made sure to stay near the door. I was but a foot away from Erika, Dakota and Jamie as well as the director James Foley.
On stage James was the first to thank the fans, followed by Dakota, Erika and Jamie mumbled a bit. You could tell he’s still a bit uncomfortable talking to a crowd but he appreciated our energy and enthusiasm. I had a great shot of the stage and only wish I had stopped recording to take a selfie of me with the cast in the background. I was just so overwhelmed that I couldn’t think straight! On their way out of Vibiana I called out Dakota’s name which she gave me a smile and Jamie turned back to wave to us. Soon after, we were asked to start moving towards the front to catch the shuttle to the Theater at Ace Hotel where we would be viewing the movie. On our way out,we were given another gift of a VR viewer with the movie poster on the front of it. It truly was astonishing to see how generous the studio was with us since they had sent us a gift the day before which included a t-shirt, movie tie-in book of Darker, lip balm, drinking glasses, VR viewer and a cardboard Ana mask. We also received some fabulous lipstick by Sisley. We of course chose red!
We quickly got on the bus and were at the Ace in as little as five minutes where we were escorted to our assigned seats in the orchestra area, row Q, seats 18 and 17. The theater had a vintage feel and is beautiful. Once inside, a few of the other actors where arriving and I quickly recognized Victor Rasuk who of course is Jose Rodriquez and was able to get a selfie with the gorgeous Ashleigh LaThrop who plays Hannah, which is Ana’s assistant in the movie at S.I.P. Soon after it was announced for us to take our seats and James Foley, E.L. James came out and thanked the fans and then announced Dakota and Jamie. Did I mention how sexy and hot they looked? Well, they were off the charts! Dakota looked like an angel in her cream Valentino dress and Jamie couldn’t be any sexier in his blue suit. E.L. James dress was fabulous as well and she rocked it.
I had been debating as to whether I wanted to purchase the full soundtrack to the movie but after seeing how the songs corresponded to the scenes, I quickly made up my mind and pre-ordered it once I arrived home. Needless to say Darker was a roller-coaster ride of emotions! It truly delivered on everything that made us fall in love with these books and characters. Jamie was marvelous and owned the role of Christian Grey this time around. He exuded sexiness, humor masculinity and did I mention SEXINESS?!?! As where in the first movie all eyes were drawn to Dakota Johnson’s Ana, I have to say that Jamie outshone her in this one. Not to take anything away from her performance either but we saw how wonderful she brought the role to life in the last film.
The pacing was perfect and the script was more natural and real. Oh let’s talk about the sex scenes without giving away any spoilers. There was cheering, coming from the audience because they made you feel it to your core. The chemistry was beautiful and the kisses smoldered. It truly felt like two people in love with each other that were willing to fight all obstacles. Well you all read the books so you know what happens and the movie version fulfilled our expectation leaving us satisfied and sated.
Jamie stopped by The Conan O’Brien show on February 1st where he debuted a party trick we’ve all been secretly dying to see him do in person. We’ve all seen the photographs but never did we think he’d perform the stunt for us on television.
With a crowd filled and fueled by Official Fifty members among other fans of Jamie who made the journey to LA, Jamie starts the interview by stating that he doesn’t have fond memories of the Warner Brothers’ lot.
He auditioned for the film ‘Rock of Ages,’ a few years back and before leaving for the audition, he grabbed a bottle of liquid courage (Whiskey) which didn’t turn out to be such a good idea.
“I had to sing a couple of songs that were well beyond my capabilities. I was first up. It was like 9:45 in the morning and I had just woken up, brushed my teeth and went here, came, here. And I thought, I’ll bring a little bottle of whiskey with me because it really made sense to me at the time. And I thought, it’ll do two things; it’ll give me a bit of courage, because I didn’t think I was a very good singer and the other it would do would warm my vocal chords. So that was the plan anyway. And I parked right before the big water tower thing, and I (…) open the door and I take the whiskey and drank it and as soon as it hit my lips, I puked. I’m talking like, instantly like, really, not just threw up I mean I really threw up all over the side of the car, all these executives are driving by in like little golf buggies and stuff. And then I didn’t think it through. I didn’t bring mouth wash or mints or anything so I went into this audition smelling like whiskey and puke and then sang really badly. Anyway, that’s why you didn’t see me in ‘Rock of Ages.’
Speaking of how sometimes it’s hard for Americans to understand his thick Irish accent, Jamie tells Conan and the audience that if he orders food at a fast food restaurant, he does it in an American accent, because there’s just some things he doesn’t want others to get wrong. At In and Out Burger, he goes for the four-by-four. Four burger patties on a bun with a bucket of cheese – we knew Jamie liked his burgers!
“Were you always confident with women?”
“I was always anything but confident. (…) In fact when we were in University we used to play this game because I was totally incapable of talking to girls and a guy on the Rugby team I played on at University played this game called ‘Shy Guy.” He explains how his friends would go up to a girl and say “My friend’s over there, he’s really shy, but he likes you.” and the idea is that the girl is ‘Awe that’s really sweet, who is he?”
“So one night we tried this on twins at the university (…) and she took one look at Jamie and said ‘Nope.'” Talk about a missed opportunity!
Onto Jamie’s party trick, which he eludes to the fact that Christian may perform this trick in Fifty Shades Darker. Jamie displays how strong he is by showcasing his upper body strength in a balancing act off the edge of Conan’s desk. We’ve seen this before but not in the flesh. Conan’s face says it all!
“This is such a bad idea.”
“I don’t know what’s gonna happen now.”
“Just before I do this, if my face breaks or anything, you will pay for all that, right?”
“I myself will not pay for it.”
He does it with ease but uh, oh – it looks like he pulled a pec muscle! He’s in obvious discomfort but brushes it off. “I’m honestly not exaggerating I’ve just pulled my pec. Yeah that’s not good. Did it look good?” Yes Jamie, it looked beautiful!
A Darker clip is then shown.
Conan ends the interview by telling Jamie he’s really fun to talk to, while fans yell out that they love him.
Let’s hope Jamie does more American television interviews in the future because this past week has been a blast!
Jamie made a surprise appearance on The Talk last week and Sharon Osbourne’s reaction was everything.
After gushing about the Fifty Shades star, he’s welcomed onto the show to everyone’s surprise, especially Sharon, who can’t quite believe that he’s there. She barely talks throughout the interview, instead she’s touching him, rubbing him, looking at him and hanging onto his every word.
Fall in love with Sharon and her reactions by watching the clip below.
Mr. Grey has been a busy man this past week! While embarking on the North American Press Tour for Fifty Shades Darker, Jamie Dornan had a lineup of talk show interviews in the works and sat down with Jimmy Kimmel, among others, on January 31 to chat all things Darker.
The host of the late night talk show has now sat down to chat with Dornan twice, the first time being last November. This time, he sat down with Kimmel to talk Fifty Shades Darker, how his character has evolved and what fans of the franchise can expect with the second installment.
By now, we’ve all seen Jamie’s buzz cut which was the first thing Kimmel asked about. “Did you shave your head for a role?” “Yeah, it’s for work. When I was in my early twenties, I used to have a shaved head, quite a lot, so I know I don’t have one of those (knobby) heads,” as he sweeps his hand across the back of his head. At least it’s not cold in LA!
Jimmy seemed to be quite intrigued by a photo of Jamie with Josh Gad and Don Rickles, so naturally, he asked about it “It’s a photograph of you and Josh Gad and Don Rickles. What was going on here?” “I look very red and drunk,” Jamie replies, making the audience laugh alongside him. “I was having dinner with Don Rickles and his wife Barbara as you do, and Josh Gad happened to just come into the restaurant.”
“How did you end up having dinner with Don Rickles and his wife Barbara in the first place?”
“Uhm, they invited me,” elaborating that they’ve became kind of e-mail buddies throughout the years, to which Jimmy joked that there’s no way Rickles knows to email.
Jamie has always been fond of Rickles and speaks very highly of him. “I’m a big fan of Sinatra and Dean Martin and Joy Bishop (…) and Don was just the one who stuck out to me in all of those.”
“Do you still live in Belfast?” Jimmy asks. “No I don’t live in Belfast anymore, no. I live just outside of London.”
“Have you ever lived here in Los Angeles?”
“I’ve spent a lot of time here. I used to come over here for little stints to try and get work. The first time I came over here, I thought ‘I’ll try to immerse myself in the LA way of life and I’ll join the gym because everyone’s like really into that here. So I joint this gym, ‘Equinox’ on Sunset. I signed up and I went into train and the first person I see if your man Fabio. And he was there with all his hair and all that, and he’s wearing a very loose fitting tank top and he was doing pull ups and he had a crowed around him.
“How long ago was this?”
“This was you know, twelve years ago or something.”
“OK, still not at the height of Fabio Fever. How many pull ups was he doing?”
“He was doing enough to form a crowd. I didn’t join the crowed I just sort of went, “Well maybe LA’s not for me.” Dornan prides himself on his homeland and LA would seem to busy for him.
After returning from a commercial break, we’re privy to a scene from the masqurade ball in which Ana dishes out $24K on a trip to Aspen, which in turn donates to the ‘Coping Together’ campaign, spearheaded by Grace (Christian’s mom)
“(The Premier) is on Thursday.”
“You are in a great field of danger at this thing. Do you have security, like a person who’s hired to keep women away from you to like, keep them off of you?”
“I don’t think that’s exclusively all that hard to do but on a night like that…” “That’s their number one job.”
And do you have people grabbing at you?”
“I don’t mind that. I’m really gonna regret saying that.”
“Your dad, I learned today, has invented a new soccer game that’s becoming popular around the world. What is the game exactly?”
“It’s called Circular Soccer. My dad’s dad who sadly died before I was born, he played soccer for Ireland and so they played this game – a version of this game – when we were kids, when dad was a kid. So dad’s kind of developed it for modern day.”
“Dads got a very active mind and he wants to keep producing, giving something to the world.”
