For those of us who didn’t (and still don’t want to) read 50 Shades of Grey, the news that the crazy popular book was being made into a movie stirred zero excitement within our souls. However, when the news later broke that the lead actor was going to be Jamie Dornan, those of us who have loved him since he appeared in Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette, found that our level of excitement increased automatically. The adorable – nay, smoking hot – Irish actor is just so dang easy on the eyes, we’ve decided to highlight his most glowing moments.

When he’s dashing in Marie Antoinette
Having seen this film roughly 1 trillion times, I am extremely familiar with the hotness that is Jamie Dornan in the role of Count Axel Fersen. Dornan plays a smooth talking soldier who sweeps the Dauphine off her feet. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all meet our Prince Charming (or in this case, Count Charming) at the next masquerade ball we attend? AND if he could be a Jamie Dornan doppelgänger? Yes, yes it would be.
When he’s in his Calvins
There were a slew of Calvin Klein ads ranging from 2004 – 2009 where Dornan posed in some extremely steamy photographs with the likes of Natalia Vodianova, Kate Moss, and Eva Mendes. One particular ad stands out in my mind where Jamie’s posterior is being bit by, what I can only assume is, a very hungry model. Baby oil, denim, and a smouldering Blue Steel pout really suit Jamie well. Not surprising.
When he opens his mouth to speak
I have to admit, that after at least 10 years of crushing on Mr. Dornan, I am only now realizing that he is Irish. This little tidbit of information, let’s face it, realllllly ups his hotness factor. An accent is definitely a bonus in any situation, but when combined with all the other aspects of Jamie’s irresistible magnetism, the result is unstoppable. Watch the above video and swoon at how adorable Jamie is. He’s bashful, and a little fumbly, which just makes him even more charming.
When he took a bath for Interview Magazine
Interview Magazine picked Jamie as their June/July cover boy for 2014, and for that, I thank them. The article features a handful of extremely hunky photos of Jamie moodily posing. The moody brute look is always a winner, and looks very good on Jamie. The interview itself is very insightful, and revealing of Jamie’s thoughtful and modest nature. He’s well spoken, witty, and cute while discussing his work, and insecurities. If you’re not convinced of the *Jamie Dornan Magic*, then read this article, and I guarantee you will become a completely smitten kitten.
When he took a stroll with his baby daughter
Jamie and his wife, Amelia Warner (sorry ladies, had to break the bad news to you at some point) welcomed a precious baby girl into their lives in 2013. Super hot dad walking around with his adorable baby? Irresistible. Super hot dad walking around with his adorable baby dressed in a bunny outfit? Well, that’s just too much. It’s a-freaking-dorable. He’s clearly not just a top-notch underwear model, dynamic actor, and expert donkey feeder, but a completely adoring father. Yep. He’s perfect.
