Jamie Dornan's daughter thinks he's a tractor driver.

The 'Fifty Shades of Grey' actor - who has Dulcie, five, and two-year-old Elva with wife Amelia Warner - admitted his kids got confused about his career when he tried to explain it to them and now they get excited when they pass farm vehicles in the rural area where they live.

He explained one of them will point at tractors and say: ''Look Daddy, that's what you do.''

He continued: ''I tried to tell her one time that I was an actor and because we live in the countryside with a lot of tractors, she somehow put the two together and I became a tractor driver in her head.''

The 36-year-old actor adores being a father more than any other job, and claims getting his daughters ready for the day provides him with all the exercise he needs.

He told the Irish Sun newspaper: ''The madness of getting two tiny people ready for school and nursery every morning is all the fitness you need in a day. When I'm at home, all I am is a husband and father and that is all encompassing.

''It's the role I take most seriously in life. I love what I do for a living and you can go on meaningful journeys and give a lot of your soul to things - sometimes it touches people in a nice way and sometimes, it's purely entertainment, job to job.

''But essentially, it's a job to me. Real life is at home, in the countryside, a couple of hours outside London.''

But the 'My Dinner With Herve' star admitted his mornings are always filled with ''madness'' and having to retrieve lost items.

He said: ''Our eldest just started proper school and thank God the school gives you a list of the stuff they need every day of the week. You're checking stuff off like a lunatic in the morning while trying to get some fruit into them.

''Inevitably, you get into the car and you start to drive and the next thing, they don't have their gym kit or their ballet shoes or whatever, so then you're driving back.

''Anyone who has kids can relate to this sort of madness. It's an amazing experience, but it's mad every morning.''
