We could have gotten some Jamie Dornan full frontal?!
Fifty Shades Freed just had its opening weekend become a record low for the franchise, and maybe it would have done better with some peen shots. (But who can really say?)
Remember how a month ago we were all obsessed with Dornan’s swimsuit scene in the trailer and how Dornan teased us by talking about what he’s packing?
Now, director James Foley has shared with ET that we could have actually seen it.
In an exclusive interview, ET found out that full frontal shots were taken during the filming, but were ultimately not included in the final product.
While at the film’s premiere in Paris, France, Foley said:
"There were actually scenes that we shot where it was [full-frontal nudity]," Foley told ET's Cameron Mathison. "[Dornan and I] never talked about [having him show more]. But in the final cut, I'm being totally honest, it just didn't come off… Full frontal would have been a kind of deliberate cut, to see that for no reason."
"There's plenty of dailies where he's on, but it just didn't make the final cut," he added. "For dramatic reasons."
While Dornan flashed us with a quick shot of his appendage in the original Fifty Shades, he later told ET that he agreed that the latest film "didn't need" more nudity.
"I feel like if it serves a story to see more, then I am all for it. If I don't think it adds anything or I don't deem it to be necessary to move the story along, then I don't think you need to see that part of me, or that part of Dakota [Johnson]," he told ET during our exclusive interview at the Palais Garnier the same day. "It just becomes sort of gratuitous if we don't need it."
