Actor has shared some ‘very uncomfortable’ moments he endured when starting out in his career.
The star, 41, thanks to hisseries, The Fall and The Tourist.
While , as a young man by modelling, working with the likes of and Eva Mendes – but doesn’t have good memories of starting out.
Jamie has now revealed he had some ‘uncomfortable’ interactions as a newbie model, with one photographer walking into his changing room as he was undressing.
The photographer pretended it was a mistake, but after leaving the room kept the door half-open and hovered outside.
‘It’s just weird s**t, now that I look back at it,’ Jamie told The Times.
‘Voyeuristic, strange, very uncomfortable stuff.’
When he was around 20, an older photographer working with him on a shoot was insistent they should have lunch together, which Jamie declined.
But after getting dressed and preparing to leave, Jamie found the photographer ‘n**ed.n**ed in the kitchen making spaghetti bolognese.’
‘Appalling! Unless that’s just how he cooks? I ran out.’
Despite his initial career as a model, Jamie doesn’t like having his photo taken, and is proud to have made the transition to successful actor.
Being a high-profile celebrity has its downsides however, with Jamie recently reflecting on a ‘f*****g scary’ experience he had with a stalker.
The star shares daughters Dulcie, Elva and Alberta with wife Amelia Warner, and a few years ago Jamie feared for his family’s safety when a stalker began harrassing him.
He told The Independent: ‘I’ve been involved in situations where it’s impacted my family. I had a situation… a stalker-type situation before Covid,’ he began.
‘That was f***ing scary. Someone turned up at my house when my kids were there.’
He added: ‘The more I can block that out, the better it is for me and the family.’
Since becoming a household name thanks to the steamy Fifty Shades series, Jamie has gone on to win multiple awards, and was nominated for a Bafta for his work in The Fall, and a Golden Globe for 2022 film Belfast.
