Jamie Dornan Says He’ll Never Be Like Rob Pattinson, Which Is The First Sign Of Being Like Rob Pattinson
In a new interview with Variety, Jamie Dornan insists that his experience with the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise and all the fame that comes with it will be absolutely nothing like what Robert Pattinson went through with Twilight. Oh poor thing. He's in such denial.
Jamie says that he and Rob became friends after Jamie filmed the Fifty Shades movie, and the last time they hung out they “just got drunk.” (What fun!) Jamie adds that hanging out with Rob has shown him “what it's been like for him,” but adds, “I don’t know if it’s been a benefit to witness that. Whatever that is.”
“That” would be the aftermath of starring as the hunky lead in a popular movie series based on a romance novel aimed at women. Kind of like what Jamie's doing right now. But don't try to tell him that his experience with this franchise will be anything like Rob's. He's adamant about that:
“By the way, it’s not the same thing. We’re not the ‘Twilight’ franchise. We’re a different thing. Whatever my situation is, it’s going to be different from Rob’s. They are incomparable.”
Too late, the comparisons have already been made in every single person's head several times over. To say Fifty Shades is nothing like Twilight is comical. It literally started as a Twilight fanfiction. So in a way Jamie and Rob are already playing the same part. There's also the fact that Jamie and Dakota Johnson have zero chemistry, which is only slightly more than Robsten had. And the fact that fame is already hitting Jamie so hard he's afraid of getting murdered at the premiere — which just so happens to be exactly the kind of morbid, uncomfortable statement Robert Pattinson would make.
But according to Jamie Dornan, those situations are “incomparable.” Maybe he's just confused about how words work. “Incomparable” describes me and Angelina Jolie. And even that might be a stretch because at least we're both white ladies. The word Jamie was looking for here is “comparable.” I would have also accepted “exactly the same.”
