Actress Dakota Johnson will be portraying the famous Anastasia Steele from E L James’ erotica Fifty Shades of Grey on the big screen come Feb. 13, 2015, but the star has no problem turning her sexy on.
Such is the case when it came to her cover shoot and spread in Elle magazine’s March issue. Dakota put on her seduction hat by smizing at the camera while strutting thigh-highs and flashing her bra for the photo shoot.
But more than just looking the part, the 24-year-old told the mag, “I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame.”
When asked what intrigued her about the fanfiction trilogy, Johnson said, “Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
“At Elle, we love to feature women who are taking risks and putting themselves out there,” said Robbie Myers, the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief. “Dakota was really open and candid in her interview and has a great mix of confidence, humility and humor.”
The highly anticipated film’s producer, Michael De Luca, spoke with E! News about how filming is going at the Producers Guild Awards in Los Angeles.
“It’s hot,” he said of Johnson and Jamie Dornan’s chemistry throughout shooting. “I think we are a little more than halfway through but it’s going really good. I’m excited!”
“The chemistry is there, they genuinely like each other,” De Luca revealed to us. “They’re enjoying the story, the story is so powerful.”
