Jamie Dornan Recalls Gluing a Wig to His, Um, Privates to Impress a Girl

Jamie Dornan will soon return to “Fifty Shades Freed” as sex symbol Christian Grey. First, he shared a Fifty Shades of Gross story on “The Graham Norton Show,” about an embarrassing experience from when he was 15.

You have to give him credit for the … balls? … to tell the story, since he was sitting next to legends Liam Neeson and Helen Mirren. Graham Norton found the story hilarious, but Liam Neeson — did he not approve? He was pretty stone-faced throughout.

You should watch the clip below to see Jamie Dornan tell his story. Basically, Dornan claims he was a very young-looking teen with no game. “I was 15, I looked about 7. I had no hair or anything.” He was balancing playing rugby and school, with amateur dramatics on the side. There was one day when he had a role as a waiter in “The Cherry Orchard” and there was a party for the rugby game after the play. For the play, he was given a “black, very acrylic, highly flammable wig” applied to his face to make him look older.

Guess what he decided to do with that wig after the play and before the party? Here’s what he just confessed:

“So I thought it would be a good idea after the curtain came down on this play, I was going to this party after. I might meet a girl and maybe she drops a hand… [The audience laughed.] So I had the idea to maybe cut off some extra hair off the very — by the way, I was a very fair child. I had blond hair. So I went into the dressing room and I cut off all this very curly jet black hair, cut it in a wee pile and got my [glue stick] and taped it on there, stuffed it. And I remember standing in front of the mirror going, ‘That looks all right.'”

Graham Norton howled. As it turns out, Dornan went to the party and managed to kiss a girl but it never went further than that. “And thank God it didn’t,” Dornan now says.

Helen Mirren wanted to know if the wig removal was painful. Both physically and emotionally painful, Dornan explained, because he had about “three naturally evolved pubes” at that point, and off they went when he removed the wig.

Watch the full video:By the way, you should also watch this video with Helen Mirren and Liam Neeson. Did you know they lived together and were “a serious item” for a while? What a shame they didn’t last, but still… “Fifty Shades Freed” opens February 9th. Dame Helen Mirren’s “Winchester” opens February 2nd. Liam Neeson’s “The Commuter” is now in theaters.

Even though audiences didn’t turn up for last year’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, Disney is moving forward with its own take on the Medieval icon. In fact, it’s a take they’ve done before, as the studio’s project in development is a live-action remake of their 1963 animated feature The Sword in the Stone. Find out the latest, including news of who is directing the fantasy film, below.

Who is directing the movie?

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has tapped Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, best known for helming the zombie movie sequel 28 Weeks Later and the 2011 horror fantasy Intruders. His hire is being seen as a hint of the studio’s interest in a darker take on the story of young Arthur.

Oh, Canada — buckle up, because the “Super Troopers” are heading your way right meow.

The first full-length, red-band trailer for “Super Troopers 2” reunites the gang from the 2001 original comedy for more hijinks, pratfalls, toilet jokes, and corny puns.

This time, the Vermont state troopers are going Canadian thanks to a border dispute. Cultures clash, bald eagles get shot, French is spoken, Tim Horton’s is called upon, and someone wants to, ah, have relations with a moose.

Everyone is back, including Thorny (Jay Chandrasekhar), Foster (Paul Soter), Mac (Steve Lemme), Rabbit (Erik Stolhanske), Farva (Kevin Heffernan), Captain John O’Hagen (Brian Cox), and Officer Ursula Hanson (Marisa Coughlan). Joining the fun this time around is Rob Lowe as the mayor of the small Canadian town that the troopers are patrolling and Lynda Carter as Vermont’s governor.

“Super Troopers 2” opens in theaters April 20.

Michael Douglas Accused of Sexual Harassment Following Preemptive Denial

A week after issuing a preemptive denial about forthcoming allegations, Michael Douglas has been accused of sexual harassment by journalist and author Susan Braudy.

Douglas gave Deadline an interview to “get ahead” of the story, which has now been published by the Hollywood Reporter. The article details how Douglas used profane language, made sexually-charged comments about Braudy and his mistresses, and masturbated in front of her when she worked for his production company in the late ’80s.

In one detailed anecdote, Braudy described a script meeting in his apartment to brainstorm an E.T.-like character:

Michael unzipped his chinos and I registered something amiss. Still complimenting my additions to our E.T. imitation, his voice lowered at least half an octave. I peered at him and saw he’d inserted both hands into his unzipped pants. I realized to my horror that he was rubbing his private parts. Within seconds his voice cracked and it appeared to me he’d had an orgasm

Braudy kept notes, journals, and other records of the alleged harassment.

In the Deadline interview last week, Douglas came forward to discuss the claims before Braudy had made them. He admitted to using “colorful language,” but completely denied the script meeting incident as “a complete lie, fabrication, no truth to it whatsoever.”

“I’m bewildered why, after 32 years, this is coming out, now,” he said.

He and his team have chalked it up to Braudy’s disgruntlement over being fired from the production company.

But Braudy fired back, “I believe this is part of the problem, as is his pretext of victimization. These are some reasons why so many women don’t come forward with their stories — Lord knows it’s taken 30 years and a movement for me to gather my courage.”
