Jamie Dornan, an attractive man who somehow managed to make a movie about sex deeply uncomfortable, has a new skill to add to his résumé: axe-throwing. One skill to remove from his résumé: Sounding normal and not at all creepy when the subject of ax-throwing comes up in interviews.


Dornan picked up this hobby on the set of his upcoming film Robin Hood. “I have a big ax fight in the film, but in real life I never had an ax fight if you can believe that,” Dornan told Page Six. Had you asked me yesterday, I would have said I definitely can believe that, but now, I’m not so sure. “But now I could!” Dornan added.

“I actually have an ax at home... my sister bought it for me as a gift,” he went on. “Oh boy, now this is getting a bit weird.”


Kudos to Dornan on freeing himself from the shackles of the Fifty Shades franchise, and good luck to any friends of his the next time he invites you over for dinner!

The trailers for his new movie (Robin Hood) are so confusing. What year is it supposed to be in? The sets look old-timey but the clothing and some of the weaponry look modern.
