Edward Cullen and Christian Grey are buddies!
To the delight of Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey fans everywhere, Jamie Dornan revealed that he has a budding bromance with Robert Pattinson. "I don't remember what we talked about the last time I saw him," Dornan told Variety when asked about his friendship with the Twilight heartthrob. "I think we just got drunk."
The Fifty Shades of Grey star says he met Pattinson, 28, after he wrapped filming on the erotic book-turned-movie. As fans of both franchises know, E.L. James wrote Fifty Shades as a piece of Twilight fan fiction, and reportedly wanted Edward Cullen himself (Pattinson) to take on the leading role of S&M enthusiast Christian Grey.
That being said, Dornan is insistent on differentiating between the two movies. "By the way, it's not the same thing. We're not the Twilight franchise. We're a different thing," the 32-year-old actor says. "Whatever my situation is, it's going to be different from Rob's. They are incomparable."
He adds of his pal, "I've been around Rob long enough to see what it's been like for him. I don't know if it's been a benefit to witness that. Whatever that is."
Dornan comments on all the people telling him his life is going to change once Fifty Shades is released on Feb. 13, admitting that he might not be prepared. "Everyone has been saying that to me, 'Are you ready?' I don't have a good answer to that, because I don't know what I'm meant to be ready for," he confesses to Variety. "Whatever happens, happens. I'll just roll with the punches."
Perhaps he can ask RPattz for some advice.
