Whether or not you are a fan of the steamy blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey, it officially allowed Dakota Johnson to step out of her famous family's legacy and made her a household name or, as some might suggest, a Red Room of Pain name, all on her own.
Recently the star of the franchise made her Ellen Degeneres Show debut to discuss her newest movie, Black Mass, and the upcoming Fifty Shades sequel Fifty Shades Darker and some of the awkward encounters she's faced since becoming so widely recognized as Anastasia Steele.
Check out her interview with Ellen to hear more about what it feels like when practically the whole world (family excluded) has seen your sexy scenes:
When Ellen asked if people are now weird around her since taking on the salacious role, she responds awkwardly saying:
Sometimes...Sometimes people just say things that are a little bit awkward for me.
Johnson talks about one incident in particular:
I was in a cab recently, and the driver was like, ‘You know, my wife and I, we saw your film. We really liked it.’ And [then] he goes, ‘…I thought there could be more sex.' And I was about to roll out of the car when it was driving.
There's no denying that being in a car with a stranger and told you should have had more sex scenes in a sex-filled movie is definitely a bit out of the ordinary, probably even for someone famous.
With seven scenes of the film dedicated to sex and foreplay, clocking in at about 14 minutes and 17 seconds out of the 125-minute long movie, there's certainly no shortage of sex!
Ellen, then being the gracious soul that she is, offered Dakota Johnson some Ellen-themed sex toys and a blanket on the off chance the Ellen blue better suits her mood than Christian Grey's preferred shade of red.
According to Johnson, filming for the highly-anticipated movie Fifty Shades Darker will start in the new year and will be released on February 10, 2017.
