Warning: This article may contain spoilers for the upcoming sequels to Fifty Shades of Grey.
Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed are well into production, with several scenes wrapped, but that doesn't mean there's nothing to glean from the production sets as far as what stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan have been up to as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. The Fifty Shades stars were spotted filming a new scene portraying the characters engaging in a sexually-charged tryst typical of the affairs seen in Fifty Shades of Grey. However, this time, there's a reason to celebrate with a poolside romp for Dornan and Johnson.
Fifty Shades Darker Brings Dakota Johnson And Jamie Dornan Together For Some Topless Sun WorshipIt's clear by the photos shared through the Daily Mail that both Dakota and Jamie have kept their physiques finely tuned in anticipation of their return to the Fifty Shades franchise. Jamie, of course, was topless, as he filmed a poolside scene for Fifty Shades Darker, and when Dakota Johnson joined him at the pool for a scene shot for the on-screen couple's honeymoon, she also went topless. Dakota might not have bothered removing the lemon yellow top to her bikini, considering how revealing the swimwear was in the first place, but, even so, all eyes were on Ms. Johnson as she played out the scene in only her bikini bottoms.
The scene was filled with both romance and fun. Dornan massaged Dakota's back, stroking her skin in sensual moves, rubbing away the tension and relaxing Dakota just as a real lover might have done. Afterwards, Jamie and Dakota took off for a ride on a jet ski.
While Dakota's outfit was certainly alluring, it was also functional. The bikini, tied around the neck for the top and around the waist for the bottom, will keep tan lines at a minimum for future scenes.
A Meeting Of The Wives: Dakota Johnson And Amelia Warner Do LunchDespite rumors that Amelia Warner has been driven to jealousy by Ms. Johnson's sex scenes with her husband, Jamie Dornan, in the Fifty Shades franchise, Just Jared reports that the two women enjoyed a nice sushi lunch. Not wanting to part from Jamie, Amelia tagged along to France, where the Fifty Shades movies have been filming and even was spotted on the set of Fifty Shades Darker, where she watched that soon-to-be-famous poolside scene.
Jamie and Amelia celebrated their third wedding anniversary this past April, just one month after having welcomed their second child.
Dakota Johnson has been previously linked to Jake Gyllenhaal and Matthew Hitt, but she's been playing it single recently. Ms. Johnson has been spending much of her free time with Fifty Shades Darker co-star Rita Ora, though the nature of their friendship is unknown.
Fifty Shades Darker will see Anastasia Steele (Johnson) and Christian Grey (Dornan) reunited and bonded closer than ever, but no relationship comes free of baggage. In Fifty Shades Darker, Anastasia will find herself questioning her future with Christian as she fends off more and more women from her new husband's past. There was some alluding to this problem in Fifty Shades of Grey, but as the trilogy moves forward, Grey's past becomes an even bigger problem for Dakota Johnson's character.
Fifty Shades Darker boasts an impressive supporting cast with such big names as Kim Basinger, Bella Heathcote, Tyler Hoechlin, Marcia Gay Harden, and Rita Ora, so fans of the E.L. James adaptations can expect an even more compelling story in the two sequels.
Fifty Shades Darker is set to swing into theaters on February 10, 2017. Fifty Shades Freed will premiere on February 9, 2018 in theaters.
