Dakota Johnson made it clear that pretending to have sex with Jamie Dornan in front of multiple cameras when there are so many people watching is the most awkward part when it comes to portraying Anastasia Steele for the Fifty Shades movie trilogy.
Fifty Shades Freed is scheduled to release on February 9, 2018, and the fans are eagerly waiting to see Dakota and Jamie reprising their respective roles for one last time. Over the years, many have commented on the Fifty Shades sex scenes. Some of the critics heavily criticized Dakota’s performance as Anastasia, but the fans have also admired her courage to shed clothes in front of the rolling cameras.
During her earlier interview with Vogue Magazine, Dakota said that her sex scenes with Jamie were “interesting.” For Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, both the actors had to shoot plenty of erotic nude scenes. The actress did say that both she and Jamie are very honest with each other whenever they have to shoot a sex scene for the film.
Even though both Dakota and Jamie works as professionals, Dakota had her doubts before shooting because of the intensity of the written sex scenes.
“Nudity is really interesting for an actor. Jamie and I worked so incredibly closely for so long. There were no inhibitions, and it was very honest, very trusting,” Dakota explained. “But I mean, what a gamble! What if he had turned out to be a total d**k? There’s no makeup. There are no clothes to tell you a bit about the story. There’s no jewelry to give you a clue about social status. So it becomes purely about the performance.”
This isn’t the first time Dakota complained about filming sex scenes for the Fifty Shades movie trilogy. In her earlier interview with Chrissie Hynde, Dakota went on to say that shooting a sex scene for seven straight hours is pretty tedious. Not only this, she told Times that shooting sex scenes with Jamie when they had to use different kinds of BDSM tools was extremely uncomfortable. The Need for Speed movie actress went on to suggest that filming sex scenes with Jamie served no pleasure as they were working strictly from a business point of view.
“Filming a sex scene is not a sensual or pleasurable environment. It’s really hot — not in a steamy, sexual way. It’s just sweaty and it’s not very comfortable. And on top of that, my hands and legs were tied, and I was blindfolded, and I was being hit with this bizarre tool.”
Just like Dakota, even Jamie shared that playing a billionaire who enjoys BDSM is one of the toughest things he ever had to do as an actor. During one of his earlier interview, he recalled one such moment between Grey and Steele that made him very uncomfortable.
“It’s the first time that we see Christian, and we see him in his highly impressive office, very much in charge and in a position of power,” added Dornan. “And all of that has to come across, but we also have to quickly feel the connection between the two right away.”
Meanwhile, due to the extensive hours of stimulating sex scenes, chances of Dakota and Jamie reprising their roles in the upcoming Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey as Told by Christian are pretty slim. Given the box-office performance of the two released films and the onscreen chemistry between these two, there is a chance that if/when Universal Studios does decide to green light the project, both Dakota and Jamie will be considered to reprise their respective roles.
