Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan have been working on Fifty Shades Darker for about two months now, and they are closer than ever! To celebrate the actor’s 34th birthday, the actress gave him a sweet little surprise on set.
Let’s hope that his wife, Amelia Warner, is not mad about the closeness between her husband and Dakota Johnson.
Check out the actress’ surprise for Jamie Dornan on his birthday.
The fact that Jamie and Dakota have been working hard on the film means that they get to take a load off their shoulders once in awhile. Most recently, the star were caught enjoying themselves on a yacht, one of the locations where Fifty Shades Darker is set.
“Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan were enjoying the perks of the job on Thursday while filming Fifty Shades Darker,” reports Daily Mail. “The actors were spotted on a luxury yacht in Vancouver, Canada while taking part in a nighttime shoot. Dakota, 26, and Jamie, 33, made a stunning pair in black-tie formal wear.”
They were caught on camera laughing and having a good time as they continue to shoot scenes for the Fifty Shades franchise.
Just because he is spending inordinate amount of time with his co-star does not mean that he is neglecting his duties as a husband and a father. His wife, Amelia Warner, gave birth to his second baby right before he left to shoot the film and since then, he has been doing his best to make time for her.
Amelia Warner and her husband were caught enjoying Rihanna’s Vancouver concert recently, showing that they still make time for date night despite their newborn.
“Crammed into the Rogers Arena with his wife Amelia Warner on Saturday, the 33-year-old actor seemed more concerned with the back of the concert hall than the antics on stage as they listened to the music,” reports Daily Mail.
Looks like the couple was far busier catching up on each other’s lives instead of enjoying Rihanna’s performance on stage. She must have missed him a lot as he has been absent shooting the movie.
But his absence is not a tell-tale sign of him skirting his duties. He has said in countless situations that he loves being a dad and that having a child (or two!) is the best experience he has had in his life.
“It’s amazing. I love fatherhood,” he said according to British Vogue. “These last couple of years have been quite something. But we’re enjoying it.”
Jamie Dornan got a different kind of surprise this week when his Fifty Shades co-star claimed that she is bored by the sex scenes that she has to shoot with him.
“I’m filming the next two instalments of the Fifty Shades movies back-to-back. I’m doing one [of the sex scenes] today. It’s not… comfortable. It’s pretty tedious,” Dakota said according to Mirror UK. “We’re not having actual sex. But I’ve been simulating sex for seven hours straight right now, and I’m over it.”
Maybe the birthday surprise that she gave him also served as an apology for bad mouthing about her set experience with him.
While these hot and steamy scenes will have to be cut and edited before they can tell the story of the novels, there is some hope that the onscreen chemistry between Dakota and Jamie is better in this sequel.
“While speculation has continued to circulate regarding the lackluster chemistry between Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) and Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) in Fifty Shades Darker, a new report suggests that the actors are now sizzling on set,” reports Heavy.
They were slammed for their terrible performance in Fifty Shades of Grey, which earned them a Razzie Award, as well.
Happy 34th birthday to Jamie Dornan!
