Jamie Dornan is about to hit the big time thanks to his lead in the hugely anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey film. But the Calvin Klein model turned actor has had a taste of fame before, when he was romancing Keira Knightley.
The 31-year-old is now happily married to his gorgeous wife Amelia Warner, with their baby girl born in the middle ot the Fifty Shades shoot last November.
But rewind ten years ago, and Jamie's face was everywhere thanks to his high-profile romance with the equally beautiful Keira. Jamie has revealed that that brush with fame has helped him prepare for Fifty Shade of Grey fever.
“I don’t think I’m ever going to be as famous as her," he tells ES Magazine.

Of the celeb world and his experience of it with his ex, he adds: “It’s a strange environment, being hounded. It’s really hideous. The paparazzi are cretins. There are so many ways to make a living that don’t involve hiding in bushes outside the houses of 18-year-old girls.”
While there may have been many downsides to dating such a high profile celeb, Jamie has also been linked to another huge name - Lindsay Lohan.

The couple were linked in April 2006 before he dated Keira, with the rumours hitting headlines again this week after Lindsay allegedly penned a list of hook-ups, which features a host of stars including Justin Timberlake, Colin Farrell and the Fifty Shades of Grey hunk.
In the latest edition of InTouch Weekly a photograph of a handwritten list said to have been penned by the star during a night out at the Beverly Hills Hotel in January has been published and it's going to make several stars pretty nervous if it proves to be genuine.

A source told the magazine, Linds spent a lot of time giggling while her and an assistant wrote down her previous conquests: "They were giggling and talking s--- about people in the industry.
"It was her personal conquest list. She was trying to impress her friends with the list and then tossed it aside," they went on.
The source pointed out how toxic the list could be, especially for some established relationships.
"The list has some pretty big names on it, and they’re not all single guys," they said, "This getting out now could rock several Hollywood relationships to the core."
Those close to Lindsay, including her dad Michael, have since insisted the list is a fake.
