Unless you've been tied up and held captive by a hot and wealthy publishing magnate for the last year, then you've likely heard about the film adaptation of E.L. James's erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, in theaters Feb. 13, starring Dakota Johnson as the shy and studious Anastatia Steele and Jamie Dornan as the BDSM-loving Christian Grey.

And unless that captivity involved blindfolds, you've likely noticed just how hot Dornan is, either thanks to his leading role in Fifty Shades or his creepy-hot role in The Fall or—if you've really been paying attention—to his early acting start in 2006's Marie Antoinette, starring Kirsten Dunst, in which he played Anoinette's friend (and noted womanizer) Count Axel Fersen.

Now while we could tell you the stats on Dornan (he's 32, exactly six-feet tall, an Irishman, and, sadly, married since 2013) we won't play with your heart like that. It is nearing Valentine's Day, after all. And so herewith, 12 swoon-worthy photos of Jamie Dornan looking hot—even if he doesn't agree.
