Jamie Dornan is about to make a major leap fame-wise with the release of Fifty Shades of Grey. Robert Pattinson has made that jump, and Dornan tells Variety about the time he’s spent with the Twilight star.

“I’ve been around Rob enough. I’ve seen what it’s been like for him,” says Dornan. “I don’t know if it’s been a benefit to witness that. Whatever that is.” He’s asked whether he and Pattinson talked about the price of fame. “I don’t remember what we talked about the last time I saw him. I think we just got drunk.”

Dornan also observes, “By the way, it’s not the same thing. We’re not the Twilight franchise. We’re a different thing. Whatever my situation is, it’s going to be different from Rob’s. They are incomparable.”

As for whether he’s prepared for a higher profile, Dornan says, “Everyone that I meet, people who run studios and other actors or people who are strangers… everybody is saying, ‘Are you ready?’ I don’t have a good answer for that, because I don’t know what I’m meant to be ready for. Whatever happens, happens. I’ll just roll with the punches.” Are you looking forward to Fifty Shades of Grey?
