Fifty Shades Freed has hit theaters, and its stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are making the rounds on the talk show circuit and spilling some behind the scenes secrets about the steamy sequel.
In an appearance on a recent episode of Conan, Dornan revealed that even though he played a billionaire with a love for BDSM, he still had a thing or two to learn about bedroom etiquette, and Johnson was the one to give him the sexy notes.
“That’s a tricky conversation,” said the Northern Irish actor. “I feel like there’s times where maybe Dakota would be quicker to give me a note than a director… In the first movie, I guess there’s a sexy way to take off a girl’s underwear.”
Dornan then went on to demonstrate a very unsexy way to remove a girl’s panties that looked like a pants-ing prank. He then showed the audience the right way, while explaining that the more delicate and sensual method is to use your thumbs on the side and shimmy the underwear down.
The 35-year-old did set some boundaries when he filmed the trilogy. He never did go fully nude in any of the films, but instead, he says the audience got to see his a** a lot, and that doesn’t bother him. He added that Johnson shows her breasts quite often, and if he had them he would have done the same thing.
But, when it came to his most private area, he opted for a modesty pouch. Dornan also says that the story about him turning down $1 million to go full frontal wasn’t true.
Dornan also revealed that he is nothing like Christian Grey, the character he plays in the films. He says that S&M doesn’t “float his boat,” but he is open-minded about sexuality and sexual preference, and people should do whatever gets them off and pleases them sexually.
The actor says that he doesn’t think he would get along with Christian, either. He explained that he and his friends are easy going and like to laugh, and he couldn’t imagine himself in a pub with the billionaire BDSM aficionado.
Fifty Shades Freed is expected to dominate the box office in its opening weekend, just like the two previous films. Fifty Shades of Grey and Fifty Shades Darker grossed a combined $950 million worldwide, leaving fans craving for the third story that tells them how it all ends.
If the trailers and promotional photos are any indication, this steamy thriller won’t disappoint.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are back in Fifty Shades Freed, the final film of the trilogy is in movie theaters now.
