While you were busy crushing on Christian Grey, Jamie Dornan’s been busy crushing on… an animated fox?!

Back in 2011, young Dornan told MTV that Disney’s animated Robin Hood from 1973 was his “favorite film of all time.” Needless to say, a children’s movie isn’t exactly what we’d expect from the steamy star of Fifty Shades of Grey, so we confronted him about it. 

"I just had such a crush on Maid Marian, the fox," he confessed. "I thought she was so beautiful growing up."

Now that the 32-year-old is married with a kid of his own, he has a better excuse.

"It’s great now that we have a baby," he said, referring to 15-month-old daughter, Dulcie. "We put that film on sometimes. Even though animation’s come on a little bit in terms of the quality and stuff since then, it just has such a charm to it and the characters are so great. It’s so clever to see those characters played by animals.”
