Fifty Shades Darker debuts in theaters on February 10 and, in order to create a bit of extra buzz, Dakota Johnson opened up about the sex scenes in which she was involved and why it wasn’t as difficult as she initially thought it would be.
Jamie Dornan was Dakota’s partner on set and that’s what apparently saved her from many embarrassing moments. In an interview for the February edition of Vogue, the 27-year-old actress said that Jamie knew how to build trust and that she felt very comfortable in a very daring and uninhibited situations.
The actress revealed that nudity was a challenge for her but both worked together to overcome it. Obviously, it would have been very easy for him to cross the line, but the 34-year-old actor knew how to treat a lady. Dakota was therefore capable to concentrate on her performance, putting aside any pudency.
In an interview with Good Morning America in August, Dornan spoke highly about Dakota, saying that she is fun, easy to work with and helped him manage a tough experience.
Fifty Shades Darker, the story of Anastasia Steele (Johnson), an inexperienced college student, and Christian Grey (Dornan), a BDSM-loving businessman, will be rated R because it contains strong sexual content, some graphic nudity and language. During the interview, Dakota also expressed her opinion about a very controversial subject – BDSM. The Texas-born actress said that it can be a beautiful expirience when practiced by loving partners. Dakota also claimed that she admires those who admit their sexual preferences in their relationship.
Fifty Shades Darker is the second movie of the sensual provoking trilogy, preceded by Fifty Shades of Grey, which opened in 2015, and will be followed by Fifty Shades Freed, which will open in 2018.
