#Quote
1 [on Anthropoid (2016)] I feel that Jan Kubis is the closest character to myself that I've played.
2 [on Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) during an Elle interview, January 2015] Mass appreciation doesn't always equate to something good. Think of Hitler!
3 [on filming Fifty Shades of Grey] Some of the Red Room stuff was uncomfortable. There were times when Dakota [Johnson] was not wearing much, and I had to do stuff to her that I'd never choose to do to a woman.
4 [on his Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) leading lady] Dakota Johnson is very funny - and humor on a film set goes a long way. But she also had the ability to be a very strong dramatic actress. She'd be telling a joke one minute and breaking your heart on-screen the next, so she was perfect.
5 I don't like my physique. Who does? I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid.
6 I'm still auditioning. 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 Grey.
7 I don't think Paul Spector, from The Fall (2013) is that bad of a husband. I think he shows good qualities, despite the fact that he hunts and kills innocent women. But I want to show how regular these guys can be.
8 As a viewer, I don't respond well to actors doing more than they need to tell a story. I get really thrown by that, and pissed off. They're doing lots of things, but they could just stand there and say the lines, and it would tell the story in a far more pleasing way.
9 It's not like I cleaned up with girls. I always looked young and I was very small; I hated being 'cute.'
10 Because I used to play a lot of sport, I've always been in decent enough shape. When I used to get asked to do a bit of body work before a photo shoot I'd lie and say, 'Yeah, I'm going to the gym.' I literally never did anything.
11 I've always needed to bulk up, so until the modeling took off I was ramming Big Macs down my throat and doing plenty of bodyweight work. I'm over the Big Macs now, but I'll still drop down and do my press ups whenever I find the time.
12 It's funny when you know you're playing two characters and you're aware of how you have to play each one into your performance of the other. You're constantly at the back of your mind thinking and it all gets a bit confusing.
13 Everyone likes a bit of competition.
14 Fairytales are stories that span every generation and they've been around for a long time.
15 I can't really do the running on hard ground that I used to do. Instead I go swimming as often as possible.
16 I guess I'm just lucky with my genes.
17 I'm probably the worst person for 'Men's Health' to interview.
