Dakota Johnson is more than comfortable with her sexuality. After all, the actress is accustomed to acting out numerous sex scenes in her role as Fifty Shades Darker’s Anastasia Steele.
However, just how much has Johnson’s role in the erotic drama affected her life outside of acting?
According to the Morning Ledger, Johnson recently shared a sensual photo on Instagram that had fans asking all kinds of questions. Johnson is wearing a skirt in the pic and her left hand is slightly parting her legs.
“I’ll have an order of Identity Crisis with a side of What’s My Hand Doing, #please,” she wrote alongside the image.
Although fans poked fun at the photo, questions remained about whether or not the image had something to do with Johnson’s co-star, Jamie Dornan.
Johnson and Dornan have faced a lot of rumors since working together on the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise. From the possibility of a romance outside of work to a lack of chemistry in front of the camera, the on-screen couple has heard it all.
Now that filming for Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed is all but wrapped up, Johnson revealed that her sex scenes with Dornan were strictly business and bordered on tedious.
“We’re not having actual sex. But I’ve been simulating sex for seven hours straight now, and I’m over it,” Johnson shared.
According to Express, the actress later revealed that performing sex scenes with Dornan is “not comfortable” and that she is over “getting steamy with her co-star.”
It should be noted that Johnson and Dornan filmed Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed back to back and likely had enough sex scenes to fill a lifetime.
“I’m doing one [one of the sex scenes] today,” Johnson added. “It’s not… comfortable. It’s pretty tedious.”
Sadly, Johnson also revealed that being part of the BDSM franchise hasn’t helped her romantic life. Instead, potential suitors think Johnson is into all of the things she acts out in the film.
“Some people think this is something I’m interested in, in my private life, which is not the case. I’m an actor, I pretend,” she stated.
Apparently, they also felt as though Johnson didn’t look sexy in some scenes, though these reports have yet to be officially confirmed.
Of course, re-shooting scenes is a normal part of filmmaking, and with a movie like Fifty Shades Darker, it is only natural that some scenes needed to be redone.
At the same time, reports indicate that author E.L. James, who is serving as a producer, was also very active in the project. Unfortunately, it sounds as though James was a little too controlling, which probably only made things worse for Dornan and Johnson.
At this point, it’s too early to tell if Johnson and Dornan will satisfy fans will their portrayals of Ana and Christian Grey in the coming movies. In the meantime, production for the sequels has officially wrapped in Paris, France. In fact, fans spotted Johnson making her way through the city wearing a blue crop top with matching pants.
In addition to showing off her toned figure, Johnson completed her casual look with black sunglasses and a black handbag. Unfortunately, Dornan was nowhere in sight when Johnson strolled through the city.
Fifty Shades Darker is set to open in theaters everywhere on February 10, 2017. The final movie in the trilogy, Fifty Shades Freed, will hit theaters a year later.
