The Fifty Shades films, while immensely popular, have been criticised from the start, and actress Dakota Johnson has had it.
Speaking to Vogue, 27-year-old Johnson talked about how the nudity seen in the films is something basic for her, and she feels more honest when being naked for a sex scene.
As she told the magazine, she doesn’t ‘want to see someone wearing a bra and underwear in a sex scene. Let’s be honest about it. People are naked when they fuck’, and admitted that maybe she felt like this because she had ‘more of a European mindset’ about sex scenes.
The daughter of Melanie Griffith denied rumours that she and Jamie Dornan hated each other, and said that their sex scenes together were very honest, precisely why she thought nudity was required. To dismiss what the press said, she suggested that she and Dornan ‘hate each other and we’re having an affair, so everybody’s right. How about that?’
She mentioned that getting naked for the scenes with the Northern Irish actor had been particularly easy because they had worked ‘incredibly closely’ for a long time.
Johnson was also thankful that her relationship with Dornan had turned out to work and hadn’t backfired: “There were no inhibitions, and it was very honest, very trusting. But I mean, what a gamble! What if he had turned out to be a total dick?”
Dakota also talked about the end of her relationship with Matthew Hitt, and spoke about all the rumours going around, including that she might be bisexual, to which she joked that, to make things ‘really juicy’, she could reveal that she is ‘taking this time to explore my bisexuality’, or that ‘I have given myself to the Lord following the release of my sexually explicit trifecta of films’.
