David Gandy turned down 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.

The 34-year-old model has revealed that he rejected an offer of starring as the lead in the erotic film - which is now played by Jamie Dornan - but admitted that despite rejecting a number of big movies, he wouldn't completely disregard acting in the future.

He said: ''I was offered 'Fifty Shades of Grey', '300: Rise of an Empire', 'Hercules', which a lot of people probably would have taken as actors but I'm in the fortunate position where I like what I'm doing. I don't feel the need to act.

''I know if you're in a successful film, your status changes overnight. And I'm not saying I wouldn't, I've read many parts that I'd love to play, things that I've chosen, though, not things that've been sent.

''Critics and literary experts aren't fans of 'Fifty Shades of Grey' but I respect it for what it is. But was it right for me? No.''

David has already had a taste of acting after previously appearing in Jennifer Lopez's 'First Love' music video but admitted that the weather conditions didn't make filming easy.

He added to Square Mile magazine: ''It wasn't the greatest! Very difficult filming conditions. High winds, cars were being moved on set, sand pelting you.

''The crew were gaffer-taping their glasses to their face while we're just rolling around in T-shirt and a dress. It was freezing cold by the end of the night. But Jennifer was great; we had a laugh doing it. You just roll around and laugh - and shiver at the same time!''
