Jamie Dornan, who’s landed the role of Christian Grey in the movie version of Fifty Shades of Grey, has shown off his physique for Interview magazine.

Surprisingly, the sizzling 32-year-old Northern Irish actor – who posed in his underwear for photographers Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott – revealed that he’s not happy with his body.

“I don’t like my physique,” Dornan told Interview.

“Who does? I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid.”

He explained that even though his modelling and acting stints have often featured him shirtless, “I don’t really have choices in the material I get. So I have to make the choices in the way I play the characters. And I’m happy to get a chance to play Christian.”

Dornan was seen as more of a model than actor until he wowed audiences and critics with his performance in the British TV crime series The Fall, which saw him being nominated for a British Academy Television Award for Best Actor.

“I don’t want to be showy,” Dornan said about his acting “I’m not interested in seeing that, and I don’t want to do it. I’ve played a lot of broken people. Maybe the silences are about the different kinds of vulnerability in all of them.”

Dornan is married to English actress and singer-songwriter Amelia Warner, with whom he had a baby girl late last year. He was cast as Christian Grey in the film adaption of the best-selling novel after Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the production.

Fifty Shades of Grey is set to be released in early 2015. See more pictures of¬†Dornan’s Interview photo shoot below.
