Dakota Johnson recently revealed the things she used to do before performing sex scenes with Jamie Dornan for the Fifty Shades movie trilogy.
To perform sex scenes for a film when multiple camera points towards an actor can surely be one of the most uncomfortable jobs of the entertainment world. Every actor has their own way of dealing with such kinds of scenes. Dakota — who made a name for herself after accepting the role of Anastasia Steele, recently admitted that she used to gulp down few shots of her favorite whiskey before filming Fifty Shades sex scenes with co-star Jamie Dornan.
While chatting about the Fifty Shades Darker with Entertainment Tonight, the 27-year-old brunette confessed that she and Jamie had their own way of dealing with their emotions before they had to shoot those uncomfortable raunchy scenes.
The Need For Speed film actress told the media outlet that she would take a “shot of whiskey and mints” before the cameras started rolling. The actress also revealed that while she enjoyed her whiskey, her co-star Dornan did push-ups to release all his energy. He is also known to crack jokes on the film sets when the things became too uncomfortable for everyone.
She further told Entertainment Tonight that filming NSFW erotic scenes weren’t easy and comfortable for her in the beginning but eventually, things became more pleasant because she and Jamie “become so close.”
“We’ve got a great sort of love and respect for each other. We’re great friends and I think that makes it easier, you know? So it’s definitely more comfortable.”
Meanwhile, Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson recently talked about the most infamous sex scene from the first movie where Christian repeatedly and aggressively spank Anastasia Steele with a belt buckle.
According to the novel and the subsequent movie, it is the moment when Ana realizes that Christian is not the right partner for her and flees from his apartment to end her BDSM relationship with him for good. However, the couple eventually gets back in the start of the second book and the adapted feature.
During Sam Taylor-Johnson’s most recent interview with The Sunday Times, the lifelong feminist revealed that during that particular scene, her vision was to “hold a mirror to [Christian’s] darkness and come out with the power.”
Featuring Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, Fifty Shades Darker is scheduled to release on February 9, 2018.
