Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan doesn't love the media attention that being an actor brings and said, 'Nobody sane wants just to be famous'.

The 31-year-old former Calvin Klein model told The Telegraph, "Nobody sane wants just to be famous. I hate it when people say you're asking for it by doing films. No, I'm asking for work, and I'm asking to get paid for doing something I love. I'm not asking to be followed down a street by some f****** pap."

Dornan, who was in a relationship with Keira Knightley from 2003 – 2005, added that being with the star gave him a clear view of the negative aspects of being in the public eye, "Being with Keira was an insight into how rotten the whole thing can be. A young girl being followed around the street, there is nothing positive about that."
