Jamie Dornan Shows Off the Physique He Doesn't Like: PHOTOS


Jamie Dornan, who is prepping for his upcoming role in February's adaptation of 50 Shades of Grey, says he hates his body:

"I don't like my physique. Who does? I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid." When I noted that he will be unveiling the torso that has made him famous around the world for a movie-going audience, he again laughs over the absurdity of it all. "I'm still auditioning," he avers. "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."

Models Jamie Dornan (Select, London) and Brazilian beauty Marlon (MGM, Paris) are joined by a third I haven't IDed yet.

David Beckham Signs Deal to be Emporio Armani Underwear Model


Giorgio Armani has tapped David Beckham's ass to launch his Emporio Armani underwear brand in the states, according to Women's Wear Daily:

Beckarmani"Beckham was shooting the ad campaign in Los Angeles late last week with Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. The ads will break in fashion magazines worldwide beginning with the January issues...The ad campaign isn't the first time Armani and Beckham have worked together. While the soccer legend has worn Armani personally for years, he met and became friendly with the designer after Armani did the English team's wardrobe in 2002. Armani traveled to Manchester, England, where Beckham played at the time, and worked on the wardrobe with him."

The campaign promises to be (to steal a line from Ugly Betty) Beck-mmmmmm.

fyi - the above is not from the campaign but from the recent W magazine shoot.
