Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are having plenty of fun filming Fifty Shades Darker.
This past week, the co-stars were spotted filming an ocean scene for the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel.
According to People, the pair made quite the splash riding jet skis in southern France.
Dornan wore a pair of blue swim trunks and lifejacket for the scene, while Johnson sported a white swimsuit. Dornan later walked the beach shirtless.
Fifty Shades Darker is the second film in the hit adaptation of E.L. James’ novels.
Dornan plays the part of Christian Grey in the film. Johnson plays his romantic interest, Anastasia Steele.
Fifty Shades Darker is an erotic drama and is expected to feature more sex scenes than the first film.
Despite the heavily erotic content, Reality TV World is reporting that Johnson revealed that the sex scenes have gotten dull.
“It’s pretty tedious,” she shared. “We’re not having actual sex. But I’ve been simulating sex for seven hours straight now, and I’m over it.”
While Johnson may be getting tired of the sex, Daily Mail has released more racy photos from the south of France.
This time, Johnson was spotted going topless for the cameras while Dornan looked more than comfortable at her side.
The actress was seen wearing a small yellow bikini for the scene that left little to the imagination.
At one point, a topless Johnson relaxed on a recliner while Jamie Dornan provided her a towel to cover up.
Another scene featured Dornan carefully untying his co-star’s bikini top.
When they weren’t lounging together topless, Dornan and Johnson went for a relaxing swim in the sea with his wife, Amelia Warner.
The trio was spotted hanging out in the water together and appeared to get along just fine.
Dornan and his wife have been married for three years now and recently welcomed their second child to the world.
For her part, Warner wore a simple two-piece swimsuit for the outing and looked more than happy in Johnson’s company.
Warner’s appearance during the romantic scene follows multiple rumors of her dislike with the movies. Considering all the sex scenes between Dornan and Johnson, Warner was reportedly unhappy with her husband’s involvement in the series.
Not to mention her discomfort with watching her husband with another woman.
However, considering the recent photos, it seems as though Warner and Johnson have become friendly toward each other, at least for now.
Meanwhile, the on-screen coulee looked at ease during the sensual scenes. In fact, not only did they get close and comfy while taking in the sun, but they didn’t appear bothered at all by the presence of the cameras and crew.
Other cast members were also spotted on the beach taking in as much of France’s southern sun as possible.
Apart from Dornan and Johnson, Fifty Shades Darker stars Bella Heathcote, Kim Basinger, Marcia Gay Harden, Rita Ora, and Tyler Hoechlin.
The movie also has a new director in James Foley, who has agreed to helm the final two movies in the hit franchise.
Fifty Shades of Grey grossed over $500 million worldwide upon its release. With that in mind, a lot is riding on the next two films, which should gross just as much if not more than the first one.
It isn’t known when Fifty Shades Darker will wrap up production, though filming for Fifty Shades Freed is expected to start as soon as it’s done.
Fifty Shades Darker will open in theaters everywhere on February 10, 2017. The third film in the franchise, Fifty Shades Freed, will premiere the following year.
