'Fifty Shades' Friday: Jamie Dornan Turns 32 & Nick Jonas Is Mad

Happy bleated birthday, Jamie Dornan! The Fifty Shades Of Grey star and new dad turned 32 on May 1. The former underwear model (a title he loathes) turned Christian Grey has been in the game for a while, even though it may only seem like a short time.

"Although it looks like I've only been acting a few years, we're talking hundreds and hundreds of failed auditions," Dornan vented to The Guardian. "I look back on it now and I don't know how anyone gets through the rejection."

Though Dornan isn't a fan of the "underwear model" moniker, he admits it's what allowed him to work his way into film. "I was lucky. If I hadn't been getting paid to model I definitely would have stopped. I would fly off, do a shoot here and there, get paid well, then go back to preparing -- and failing -- for auditions and meetings."

Aren't you glad he looks so good in his skivvies?! 

Speaking of Fifty Shades Of Grey stars who'd look great nude, Rita Ora, who stars as the adoptive sister of Christian Grey, Mia, says there won't be any nudity from her in the flick -- not that most Fifty Shades fans would expect to anyway.

When asked if she'd show a ton of skin in the Fifty Shades Of Grey movie, Ora replied, "Nope! Calvin [Harris], my dad and my brother had a group meeting to worry about it. I leave that to the main characters."

That doesn't mean that Ora isn't putting work into the part, though. She told MTV, "I prepped for the role by learning some French first of all, by learning an American accent and by really just not being me. I had a brown wig on and I was being the smart girl that came from French school to see her family, so it was just a lot of dedication, it was like going back to school."

The "I Will Never Let You Down" singer also revealed that she adores Dakota Johnson, who stars as Ana Steele. "Working with Dakota was extremely fun -- she's just so gorgeous, so it kind of distracts you a little bit, but I mean she's a really great great … she's an amazing actress so I'm like, learning things from her." Ora also dished on the fun the cast and crew had making the film. "Offset there's always shenanigans going on, always someone getting picked on, but it's always having a good time. You don't want to work under a pressured environment, especially when you're making something creative, but it was incredible. I would do it all over again."

Sounds like she's in should there be a sequel! Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, anyone?

Ora is also suffering through her own public love drama, but it's a lot less complicated than the Christian Grey-Ana Steele relationship. It turns out Nick Jonas put her on blast in a song from the Jonas Brothers' aborted comeback effort, and it sounds like she shattered his heart!

In the song "What Do I Mean To You," Jonas sings, "No need for water, Rita, you got the wine / Searching for diamonds, when I gave you the time / Keys to an open door, don't need a lock / Stains on a dirty floor, you don't see a spot." Uh, okay.

When Ora was asked about the song and her relationship with Jonas (who also dated the oft-nude Miley Cyrus) on Watch What Happens Live, Ora was blunt. "I never dated him," she told Andy Cohen. "I actually met Nick through a friend and it was a very weird situation because we were close, but it never went to that level, and then I read the lyric and I kind of messaged him and was like, 'I have no idea where this came from. If you want to talk about it, call me.'"

And then what happened? She explains, "He was like, 'You know what, I just obviously didn’t put out how I felt across to you properly.' And it was one of those situations. He never really told me that, I think, but regardless we're still friends and I still have a lot of respect for him."
