Blindfolds, bondage and super steamy love scenes? Just a casual day at the office for “Fifty Shades of Grey” stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan!
Based on part one of a racy novel trilogy by E L James, “Fifty Shades of Grey” tells the story of a naive college graduate, Anastasia Steele, who falls for the handsome, kinky billionaire Christian Grey. After gaining a fan base of over 90 million readers, making a movie adaptation became a no brainer.
The highly anticipated “Fifty Shades of Grey” trailer was released on Thursday and the steamy chemistry betweenJohnson and Dornan left the internet all hot and bothered. However, for the stars of the film, translating that raciness on-screen was all work and no play.
“It’s not like a romantic situation, it’s more technical and choreographed,” explained Johnson, who plays the inexperienced Anastasia Steele. “It’s like more of a task.”
While the passion on-screen may seem natural, Dornan confessed that translating the scandalous scenes in front of the camera was far from effortless.
“That’s a big part of it…having trust, because we got ourselves into situations that don’t feel that natural and they’re not that easy and you need to have the trust there,” Dornan revealed on “TODAY.”
Before the whole “Fifty Shades” frenzy, ITM caught up with a younger Dakota Johnson at Sundance 2012 who admitted she was ready to embrace the film industry.
“I think right now I’m focusing on film,” the actress revealed. “For now, I want to delve into projects and then move to another one.”
And delve into a project, she did!
“Fifty Shades of Grey” is set for a Valentines Day release on February 14, 2015.
