Jamie Dornan And Dakota Johnson's Fifty Shades Salaries Will DEFINITELY Surprise You

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson took home WAY less than we would have guessed for their raunchy roles in Fifty Shades of Grey, but what can they expect for the sequel?

Fifty Shades of Grey has to be one of the biggest cinematic phenomenon's in years so you'd be forgiven for thinking that the flick's leading actors Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson (or Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele if your prefer...) would be treated to a HUGE pay packet for their raunchy roles. However, that's not exactly the case...

It's been revealed that Jamie and Dakota — being relative 'unknown' actors when they were cast — we're originally offered a pretty small [well, small for Hollywood that is] salary of £170,000 to star in the big screen adaptation of the best-selling book. And considering what they had to do in the movie, we're totally surprised by that figure.

Of course, after the film achieved the success it has at the box office raking in a reported £368 MILLION worldwide, the on-screen lovers have since taken home more than their original sum — meaning the risk of taking on their respective S&M roles paid off — but they still didn't get the full whack other A-listers have come accustomed to.

However, now that both stars have expressed their desire to feature in the film's sequel Fifty Shades Darker, they certainly won't signing on with that sort of salary again. In fact, it has been said that Dakota and Jamie have each been offered a SEVEN FIGURE deal to secure their participation in the next instalment. Yep, we're talking multi-millions.

Now that's what we call a pay rise! TBH, anything that gets Jamie back in Christian Grey's silk tie is ok by us...
