Jamie Dornan may have landed the role of the year when starred in Fifty Shades of Grey, however it seems his luck in the film world has dwindled ever since.
Despite filming his scenes already, the Irish actor has been cut from his latest movie Burnt, which also stars Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller.
A source told The Sun, “It’s embarrassing. Being in Fifty Shades of Grey seems to be getting Jamie dropped from movies which he had already been cast in, rather than landing him big new roles.”
“Some people thought having him pop up on screen would be distracting. They’re hoping to generate Oscar buzz with Burnt, and featuring the star of the most widely panned film of 2015 wasn’t going to do the project any favours in reality,” they added.
It’s thought Jamie trained specifically for this role, as it was out of the realm of anything he has previously worked on.
He played the rival chef to Bradley’s character, however according to a spokesman for Harvey Weinstein, the producer of the movie, it only was a small role.
“Jamie’s role was a small cameo that was part of a back story, and following the editing process, is no longer part of the film,” he said.
