Jamie Dornan Gay or Straight? Single or Has Wife or Girlfriend?: Jamie Dornan, the hunky Irish model-turned-actor we once included in our post on Hot Guys in Calvin Klein Underwear, is about to become one of the biggest stars in Hollywood.
As most of you should already know by now, the 31-year-old actor has been cast as Christian Grey in the upcoming film adaptation of the best-selling erotic romance novel, Fifty Shades of Grey. Since Fifty Shades is not a one-time book but is actually a series of books, it is very likely that — if the first film is a hit — we will be seeing Jamie in more than one Fifty Shades movie.
When our gay friend Kevin learned that Jamie has been picked for the Christian Grey role the first thing he said to us went, “Hmmm. That guy is too pretty to be straight. Doesn’t he remind you of Ricky Martin, Matt Bomer, and Wentworth Miller — you know, gorgeous boys adored by women who eventually came out as gay?”
Well, Kevin is not the only one who mistakenly believes that Jamie is a friend of Dorothy. In fact, in a 2009 article on the London Evening Standard (standard.co.uk), Dornan reveals that lots of people think he is gay:
He is often told how well he passes for straight. The amount of people who think I’m gay is astounding.’ From 2003 to 2005 he stepped out with Keira Knightley, an affair both of them refuse to talk about to the press. When they split, he was quoted as saying, The man is meant to be the alpha in the relationship on the money and power front and clearly I was not,’ but when I put that to him he cringes. That was taken totally out of context. I didn’t mean that.’
What do our friends at gay-or-straight.com think about Dornan’s preference? Well, they think he is “quite straight”:

Although he’s straight, Jamie is supportive of the LGBT community and has, in fact, appeared as a coverboy for two LGBT publications, Attitude Magazine and Out Magazine.
