Jamie Dornan does not prioritise grooming due to his laidback lifestyle.
The actor worked as a model until he landed his first onscreen role in Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, and went on to become a Hollywood sex symbol after being cast as Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades film series.
In spite of frequenting many best-dressed lists over the years, Jamie has now insisted that he takes little care of his appearance when he’s at home with his wife Amelia Warner, and daughters Dulcie, four, and Elva, two.
“We live out in the English countryside, where it’s not really about looking or smelling good,” he explained in an interview with WWD. “You sort of get up and go, really. It’s the life we’ve chosen, and we love it. I have two very small kids, and it’s the last thing in your mind in the morning – how you look and how you present yourself.”
Jamie recently made a return to the fashion industry when he was announced as the new face of Hugo Boss’ BOSS The Scent alongside Dutch model Birgit Kos.
The new advertising campaign goes live from 1 September (18), and the film star admitted he feels bolstered when wearing the iconic scent.
“It does give you a bit of a lift – it does elevate you a bit, and it’s a nice feeling,” the 36-year-old smiled. “I don’t like anything too fresh, fruity or floral usually. I just find it a bit distracting, and it makes me a bit dizzy. I prefer the earthier, woodier, leather sort of stuff.”
Jamie also added that the emotions and memories linked to a particular fragrance “never fails to blow my mind”.
