It's lead actress - who will play Anastasia Steele opposite (aka Christian Grey)- recently spoke out about the famously explicit sex scenes to Entertainment Wise:
[EL James] did a really good job of explaining how that just can happen sometimes and you have this chemical pull to someone.
Adding in the sex makes it perfect. Sometimes you feel a little bit naughty and that's okay.
I just really understand it. I think it's an incredible love story and that's why it's affected so many people.
Wow, it's a pretty bold claim considering this statement aligns the erotic novel with classic love stories such as Wuthering Heights and other comparable classics.
Perhaps Johnson is right? Maybe Fifty Shades of Grey is going to be the 21st century defining love story? What do you think?
