However, Sam did not reveal any further details regarding his role in the movie. Aaron Taylor Johnson and Sam Taylor Wood tied the knot in 2012.
Regarding Aaron being not casted as the lead in "Fifty Shades of Grey", he revealed to Nylon Magazine in May 2014 issue: "I think (Fifty Shades of Grey) would have been the wrong kind of hype to bring towards us.t would have been kind of funny that this character that all these women fancy - he's one in a million - and my wife picks her husband to play the part?"
Christian Grey role is being played by Jamie Dornan where as Anastasia Steele role has gone to Dakota Johnson.
Regarding their chemistry, Victor Rasuk who plays Anastasia Steele's best friend Jose said they are hot together.
"I've been sworn to secrecy but I will say this: Dakota was amazing," Rasuk told E! at Godzilla premiere in Hollywood. "Jamie was amazing. It was one of those things where we came into it wanting to do it justice. And I think all the fans, the millions of fans, will also love what we did. I think we did it justice."
"Fifty Shades of Grey" is set for release on Feb 11, 2015.
