The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' star adores his children - five-year-old daughter Dulcie and Elva, two - and says it "suits" him to, alongside his wife Amelia Warner, work to support his children.

He said: "I feel a healthy and lovely duty to provide for my kids, and I really like it. It suits me. Making my kids happy is a good thing for my wife and me to be driven by."

And whilst Jamie admits there are times he and his wife Amelia - who is expecting the couple's third child - get "frustrated" at each other, they never let it become an issue.

He added: "We get frustrated at times, usually when travelling with the kids, but we'd never let anything boil and become a thing. We know couples who are plate-throwers, but that's just not us. I'm glad it's not us - plates are expensive ... Certainly there's never a day that I don't tell her I love her."

The 36-year-old actor tragically lost his mom when he was 16 and it "totally derailed" him.

He shared: "It totally derails you and ends up having a huge bearing on who you become. I probably still feel like a kid. I don't think I really knew what the effects were at the time, but I do know I'm definitely a different man today as a result of losing my mother so young. I think about her every day. We were as close as a mother and son could be."

And Jamie thinks his mom would have loved the glitz and glam that his career affords him.

He told The Sunday Times Style magazine: "My dad loves the industry I've ended up in and is tickled by it all. My mum would love the glitziness of it. She was glamorous, she always looked stylish and immaculate, so getting dressed up for premieres - the necessary part of my job that isn't the most thrilling for me - would have been the thing she'd have got the most out of."
