‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ star Dakota Johnson says she has ‘no shame’
‘I have no shame,’ Dakota Johnson said on the reasons why she can take on the steamy role.
She’s daringly going where many actresses don’t have the guts to go, but “Fifty Shades of Grey” star Dakota Johnson isn’t worried to take on the sexy role as Anastasia Steele.
“I don’t have any problem doing anything,” Johnson, 24, tells Elle magazine in a photo shoot for its March issue.
Dakota Johnson channels her ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ character for the March 2014 issue of Elle magazine.
“The bolt from the blue is I have no shame.”
The daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, she graces the magazine’s latest cover channeling her “Fifty Shades” character in an assuming position — posing innocently next to a bed in a dress, sexy tights and heels.
Johnson, 24, said she was more interested in the characters’ emotions when reading the book, rather than the characters’ (many) sex scenes.
Inside the magazine the actress pairs undergarments with coats, stockings, heels and a come-hither stare. Johnson, naturally a blond, also shows off her newly brunette hair for the film adaptation of E.L. James’ steamy adult trilogy.
“Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes,” Johnson said.
Dakota Johnson stars opposite Jamie Dornan in the film, which is slated for a February 2015 release.
“I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
She will star in the film opposite Irish hunk Jamie Dornan, the “Once Upon A Time” actor chosen for Christian Grey.
Filming started in Vancouver late last year and already producer Michael De Luca gushed to E! News about the on-screen chemistry to expect from the couple.
“It’s hot,” he said.
“The chemistry is there, they genuinely like each other … They’re enjoying the report, the report is so powerful.”
