The 32-year-old actor admits to Details magazine that he fears fans of the erotic book will come after him, given that some petitioned to seeWhite Collar star Matt Bomer in the coveted role of Christian Grey. "I almost don't want to put this out there into the ether, but I fear I'll get murdered, like John Lennon, by one of those mad fans at the premiere," he confesses to the men's magazine. "Because a lot of people are very angry that I'm playing this character. And I'm a father now, and a husband. I don't want to die yet."
Making the quote all the creepier, Dornan adds, "And when I do get murdered, people will say, 'God, isn't it haunting how he did that interview in Details magazine and predicted his own death on the red carpet?'"
