Actor never wanted to be a celebrity
The actor dated Keira, 29, from 2003 to 2005 and admits he disliked the media circus that surrounded her.

Jamie‘s now receiving lots of attention himself since landing the role of Christian Grey in the highly-anticipated Fifty Shades Of Grey movie but he disagrees with the idea that fame comes with the job.
Nobody sane wants to be famous,’ the Irish star tells Telegraph Magazine.

I’m not asking to be followed down a street by some f**king pap.’
