I can’t lie — when Jamie and Dakota were confirmed to play Christian and Anastasia, I was hesitant. However, all that’s changed after seeing their first super sexy shoot together.
‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’ Casting Is Perfect
Entertainment Weekly‘s new cover has won me over. I had my doubts about Jamie and Dakota — they’re both gorgeous but would they have that awkward-but-sexual chemistry that Christian and Ana have in the epic series?
Now I know — the answer is yes, yes, yes. It takes a lot to pull off that awkward look Ana has, yet still be sexy and sensual. Kristen Stewart did it in Twilight, but it definitely isn’t something all actresses can pull off.
In the new photos from the mag, out Nov. 15, we see that Dakota did just that.
At 24, the actress admitted that she’s insecure about her figure — especially now that it’s going to be seen in all its glory on the big screen. I think that this uncomfortable vibe comes out in the photo shoot, as it should!
She isn’t supposed to be confident or secure, but a little uneasy.
Jamie Dornan: A Strong, Sexy Dominant
As for Jamie, he’s more comfortable showing his body — which he should be, as a former Calvin Klein model!
In the photo shoot, we see them in a sweet embrace; her eyes are closed as he keeps serious eye contact with the camera — such a Christian Grey thing to do. The best part about the photo is that she has her hand placed adorning on her chest, while he has a super strong grip around her wrist — it’s literally the perfect portrayal of their characters.
Sure, I was on board with Charlie Hunnam — who doesn’t love Jax, right? — but he’s confident, well known, and has a dirty-sexy look. Jamie is clean cut and crisp, the perfect look for Christian.
HollywoodLifers, do you agree? Do you think that Jamie and Dakota have good chemistry? Let me know! Laters, baby.
