It doesn't turn out to be as charming as you'd expect.

It’s the end of the road for the Fifty Shades of Grey press tour.

With the film’s release set for Friday, the most excruciatingly awkward press tour in film history will come to an end. But not before its stars make some final appearances on talk shows, where their contempt for the film is probably more amusing than the appearance itself. 

This time, Jamie Dornan and Jimmy Fallon are reading passages from the Fifty Shades novel in various accents, with varying degrees of success.

Sure, some Americans might find things more charming when spoken in a Russian or Irish accent, but does that still apply when the source material is Fifty Shades of Grey?

The results are in: No accent on the planet can make the line “I don’t remember reading about nipple clamps in the Bible” sexy.
