Photos: Jamie Dornan Runs In The Rain On '50 Shades Of Grey' Set

Pretty boy Jamie Dornan is definitely getting a workout on the set of "50 Shades of Grey." Dornan plays the lead (one might even say dominant) role of Christian Grey in the mommy porn bestseller. In the book, Grey stays fit for all his erotic extracurriculars by running, and it looks like the film being shot in Vancouver will have plenty of jogging scenes in an assortment of grey sweatpants— including one scene in the rain.

Grey also asks his submissive Anastasia Steele to follow a strict diet and workout regime in the book. (All this emphasis on being fit in the book has led at least one fitness guru to come up with a "50 Shades" workout.) But so far we haven't seen any shots of Dakota Johnson, who plays the female lead Anastasia Steele, working out on set. But Johnson has appeared at a hardware store where Steele is supposed to work as well as tea time with Dornan.

The film is slated to be released on Valentine's Day...2015.
