You might want to sit down (and handcuff yourself to the chair) for this one, fans! Fifty Shades of Grey star, Dakota Johnson, recently opened up about her decision to star in the movie adaptation of one of the most popular erotic fiction novels ever...and it's filthy!
The 24-year-old actress is to portray protagonist Anasasia Steele opposite Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey in the big-screen version of E. L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and she says she has no problems about shooting any of the smutty sex scenes.
Although she's set to appear in plenty of blush-inducing scenes with Jamie Dornan (the kind that would make you feel weird watching if your 'rents were in the room), the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson isn't the slightest bit bothered! Talking to Elle magazine after a sextastic photoshoot, showing off the kind of seduction skills that would certainly make troubled billionaire Christian Grey take notice, the star revealed that:
I don't have any problem doing anything... The secret is I have no shame.
But it wasn't the erotic bondage play in the book that interested in her most. The actress continued:
Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes... I think there's a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.
What do you guys think? Is Dakota Johnson absolutely right for the role of Anastasia Steele? Does she capture Ana's "inner goddess"? Are you a true believer now? Sound off in the comment section below!
Fifty Shades of Grey will change Valentine's Day forever when it hits theaters on Feb. 13, 2015.
