Wondering what Jamie and Dakota will look like as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele? Put your mind to rest — the first photo shoot of the couple in their risqué roles is out, and they look hotter than ever!
The hottest control freak and most gorgeous submissive ever have landed their first cover. Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are getting into character as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele on Entertainment Weekly — and revealing why the S&M roles work for them.
‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ — First Cover Revealed
Please allow yourself to take a few minutes to soak in the glorious cover photo of Jamie, 31, and Dakota, 24, hugging in their first-ever pic together. In true Anastasia Steele style, Dakota looks like an average, yet stunning brunette, who feels uneasy in her gorgeous skin. Jamie portrays Christian is crisp suit jacket over his white shirt (with the first button undone, of course). His arm is wrapped around Dakota, and in his hand is that grey tie. Swoon.
The look on Jamie’s face is perfectly Christian Grey — dominating, serious, yet completely sensual. His eyes are the perfect blue-grey color that E.L. James described in her book.
Jamie Dornan: Graphic Sex ‘Works For Me’
So, how exactly do Jamie and Dakota feel about taking on one of the most risky and anticipated roles of the year?
“I was really f–king excited,” Jamie told the mag, when he found out that he landed the role after Charlie Hunnam dropped out. As for the sex scenes (which take up 90 percent of the books), Jamie admitted that they actually “work” for him!
“I’m a fairly worldly guy,” Jamie said. “I grew up in a very liberal place. I’m not saying we had a playroom, but I’m not shocked by [the sex in the book]. It’s essential to tell the story. I can’t believe films that don’t invoke the sexual side of it. So it works for me.”
As for Dakota, it’s a little bit more of a challenge — because she actually feels self-conscious of her gorgeous body!
“Obviously, I want to look good naked,” Dakota, who also died her hair brown recently for the role, told the mag. “I totally understand now why people exercise, because it kind of f–king feels awesome.”
Ok, it can’t just be me that’s completely swooning for these two. The movie begins filming on Dec. 2 in Vancouver, B.C. and will be released just in times for Valentine’s Day in 2015. Are you excited?
