Dakota and author E.L. James got together to talk bondage in the Big Apple. Sounds like ‘Fifty Shades’ of fun!
Fifty Shades of Grey novelist E.L. James tweeted a picture of newly announced star Dakota Johnson on Sept. 8 in New York City — and it looks like she’s definitely happy she snagged Dakota as her big-screen Anastasia Steele!
E.J. James & Dakota Johnson
The 23-year-old actress, recently confirmed to be playing the coveted role of Anastasia Steele in the immensely anticipated film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, spent her Sunday afternoon in the Big Apple, bonding with E.L. and producer Dana Brunetti.
We wonder what they were talking about! The three of them looked pretty chummy, as E.L. captioned the photo, “The beautiful, talented, funny as feck, Dakota Johnson.”
Dakota looked New York City chic dressed in all black, as she currently is spending some time there shooting Cymbeline, which is set to be released in theaters in 2014.
Dana Brunetti Speaks His Mind
Despite the backlash Dakota received, she couldn’t be more thrilled with her role of submissive Anastasia Steele with co-star, Charlie Hunnam.
Dana tweeted his thoughts in defense of his decision upon choosing Dakota and Charlie to star as Anastasia and Christian Grey:
There is a lot that goes into casting that isn’t just looks. Talent, availability, their desire to do it, chemistry with other actor, etc. So, if your favorite wasn’t cast, then it is most likely due to something on that list. keep that in mind while hating and keep perspective.
He definitely has faith in his actors! We can’t wait to see them as Christian and Anastasia.
