Suffice it to say, Jamie Dornan is the right man for the job.

Speaking for the first time since landing the coveted role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, the actor says he is ready and willing to get freaky.

"I'm a fairly worldly guy," the former model, 31, says. "I grew up in a very liberal place. I'm not saying we had a playroom, but I'm not shocked [by the sex]."

"It's essential to tell the story. I can't believe films that don't invoke the sexual side of it," adds the Northern Ireland native. "So it works for me."

As for co-star Dakota Johnson's take on the material?

"Obviously, I want to look good naked," she tells the mag. "I totally understand now why people exercise, because it kind of f--king feels awesome."

Flowers in the Attic​, the V. C. Andrews novel you read under the covers with a flashlight and against your own best interests, is getting a fresh start in January. 

The Dollanganger family is returning to the small screen in a Lifetime reboot of the 1987 film.

And where the original film glossed over the relationship between Cathy and her brother, THAT scene is included in this version. Watch the trailer now and see for yourself.

Flowers in the Attic is the story of four children who are locked away in their grandmother's attic while their mother schmoozes her way back into her father's good graces in the hopes of inheriting his money when he dies.

Charlie Hunnam quitting Fifty Shades of Grey was "disappointing," author E.L. James says, and she says she worries the final product will be as well.

It's not that she doesn't have faith in the film's producers, it's just that she had reservations about turning her trilogy into a movie series to begin with.

"I didn't know if it was the right thing ... but then I thought, ‘I'm middle-aged; when in the hell am I going to get another chance to make a movie in Hollywood?'"

Imagine how the best-selling novelist felt when leading man Charlie Hunnam backed out of the project just weeks before production was set to begin.

"It was disappointing, but it is what it is," James tells EW. "I wish him well."

Almost overlooked in the awesomeness that is the first Maleficent trailer, which dropped yesterday? Angelina Jolie's daughter Vivienne's big screen debut!

It was rumored months ago that Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, who turned five this year, would play a small role. Turns out that role is a young Princess Aurora:

Vivienne Jolie-Pitt in Maleficent

Romping through the fields in pursuit of a butterfly, without a care in the world, Vivienne appears in the first scene of the first Maleficent trailer.

Later, we see the older version of character played by Elle Fanning (below).

Vivienne will even have some lines in the film, according to reports, while her older siblings Pax, 9, and Zahara, 8, will also have cameo appearances.

Jolie also said this summer that she won the part because she wasn't scared of her mother's makeup, which is not a small factor. She's intense!

"Vivienne was the only 4-year-old who wouldn't scream," Jolie joked.

Mark Wahlberg went OFF this week on actors comparing themselves to soldiers in an expletive-filled rant that did not name Tom Cruise by name, but ...

Given the controversy over comments in Cruise's lawsuit deposition in which he compares acting to fighting in Afghanistan, the implication is clear.

Speaking at the AFI Festival, Wahlberg lashed out, "For actors to sit there and talk about 'oh I went to SEAL training? I don't give a f--k what you did."

"For somebody to sit there and say 'my job was as difficult as being in the military.' How f--king dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for 2 hours."

"I don't give a s--t if you get your ass busted. You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order your f--king chicken."
