Fifty Shades Freed movie actress Dakota Johnson revealed her true feelings for her co-star, Jamie Dornan.
Both Dakota and Jamie have been under media speculation ever since they first starred in the 2015 release Fifty Shades of Grey. Their portrayal of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey left many to wonder about their intense chemistry. Many fans and online media publications suggested that Johnson and Dornan were having a secret affair on the set of Fifty Shades of Grey.
On multiple occasions, both the stars have shut down such rumors and set all the records straight. The Irish actor, who is happily married to Amelia Warner, said during many interviews that he shares a deep friendship with the actress. Even the 21 Jump Street star revealed she trusts her co-star a lot and that the sex scenes in the film were nothing but a part of the script.
However, their respective statements made news in all the wrong ways. Fans started to wonder about their secret affair behind the scenes.
When Dakota read about such rumors, she shut them down with just one statement.
“We hate each other and we’re having an affair, so everybody’s right. How about that?”
This isn’t the first time that the Need For Speed actress has discussed her true feelings about Jamie. During her recent interview, she opened up about her closeness with her co-star and how the media perceives it in the wrong way.
According to her, the friendship with Jamie is based on immense trust, and during the filming of the erotic drama series, the actor protected her whenever she needed him.
“I love Jamie, I trust him and I really couldn’t tell you if I could have done this without him.”
If this was not the case, then many people critiqued Dakota and Jamie during the promotional events of the first part in the erotic series. There were even rumors that they both hate each other and were very happy they will not have to work together in the future. However, Sam Taylor-Johnson, who directed Fifty Shades of Grey, shut down all such rumors during her interview with USA Today in 2015.
She said, “Everyone likes to gossip. And so many stories are utterly untrue. They’re funny and sweet together. I don’t know if everyone expected them to have a Kristen Stewart/Robert Pattinson thing. Jamie is married with a small baby. Dakota is in a relationship… It’s a movie. It was work. They get along fine.”
During the same interview, Jamie talked about his relationship and feelings towards his co-star. According to him, the reason why he was cast to play Christian was because of his onscreen chemistry with Dakota. After working on such an intense film, they finally became friends.
Fans will get to see Dakota Johnson portray Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan reprise his role as Christian Grey for the last time in the upcoming Fifty Shades Freed. The last part in the erotic drama series is scheduled to release on February 9, 2018. Are you excited to watch the film? Sound off in the comments below.
