After learning more about the story, she said she believes Dornan makes ideal casting.

"I didn't follow any of the drama, but I think Jamie will be amazing," she told E! News.

The film is due out on August 1, 2014, with Dornan having replaced Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam after he dropped out.

The Zero Dark Thirty actress also admitted she isn't sure how the movie will turn out.

"Being a visual medium, it's hard to tell from a script what something's going to be like," Ehle said, but added that jumping on the Fifty Shades novels bandwagon has been fun.

"It's extraordinary," she confessed. "I'm excited. I feel kind of like a tourist… I'm along for the ride, as it were."

The movie also stars Dakota Johnson as Anastasia, True Blood actor Luke Grimes and The Lords of Dogtown star Victor Rasuk.
