Christian Grey, Jamie Dornan, Fifty Shades


Happy Birthday, Christian Grey!

The fictional Fifty Shades of Grey bad boy is another year older today (June 18). To celebrate the occasion, the first official movie still of Jamie Dornan was posted to the film's official Facebook page—and, oh my! It shows the former underwear model, sitting in the driver's seat of what is surely a black Audi R8 Spyder, perfectly demonstrating that broody, kinda-hateful-but-kinda-hot Christian stare.

So how old is the BDSM aficionado supposed to be? Christian is 27 in the first book and turns 28 in Fifty Shades Darker. Fifty Shades of Grey (the movie) hits theaters Feb. 14, 2015, so if we're going by that timeline, this would be Christian's 27th birthday. Remember, though, he is fictional—no twentysomething billionaire would drink that much white wine.

In any case, we hope everyone gets a chance to delight their Inner Goddess on this special occasion. Anastasia might say, "Birthday kinky f--kery is to be recommended," but you can always go the keychain route (no spoilers, but you know the one).

And remember, only 242 more days until we get to see Fifty Shades of Grey in all its big-screen glory! Laters, babes.
