Most celebrities live in Los Angeles, but not Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan. The Northern Irish actor sat down with Jimmy Kimmel to explain why over a decade ago he decided that he could never plant his roots in La La Land, and it all has to do with romance novel cover model and Italian-American spokesperson Fabio. Yes, that Fabio.

"I signed up and I went in to train and the first person I see when I went up is your man, Fabio. He was there with all his hair and all that. He was wearing a very loose-fitting tank top. He was doing pull-ups and had a crowd around him," recalled Dornan of the time he joined a gym in LA about 12 years ago. "He was doing enough to form a crowd. I didn't join the crowd. I just sort of went, 'Well maybe L.A.'s not for me."

Hey, fair enough. Even so, Jamie Dornan still has to deal with Los Angeles on a semi-regular basis now that he is a big movie star, though he probably never returned to that Equinox.

By the way, we can totally see Fabio on the cover of an knock off version Fifty Shades of Grey.
