Lena Dunham has come out and said what every woman in the world is thinking, she wants Jamie Dornan. If you don't know who Jamie Dornan is yet, then first of all, shame on you, and second of all, get to know him. Dornan starred in hit series The Fall last summer, but more importantly, he has been cast as Christian Grey in the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey movie. The dude is smokin', but he can really act as well. His role in The Fall had us all double locking our doors at night.
The Girls writer and star has said that she wanted the actor for her show, but that unfortunately the request was put in after he got the role on 50 Shades. "It was too late. He's amazing, I just don't think we can have him," the star said at a launch for the show's third series.
Dunham first expressed her interest in the actor back in October when she tweeted:
I'm a monstrous @JamieDornan1 fan. Wasn't allowed to be attracted to him on The Fall bc he played a sexmurderer. 50 Shades is my big chance!

We hear you, Lena. The star, who plays Hannah Horvath on the show, did say that there were plenty of others making guest appearances on the new series, including Richard E. Grant. Yeah... that's not the same as Jamie Dornan. At ALL. Guess we'll just have to wait for 50 Shades so.
Girls is back for its third series on Sky Atlantic on January 20th.
Oh and here's Jamie Dornan being a big, dreamy ride:
