It takes a confident woman to take on the role of Anastasia Steele — which means Dakota Johnson is perfect! Landing the cover of ‘Elle,’ she looked sexier than ever and admitted what drew her to the book and made her decide to take on the movie role of a lifetime (and no, it wasn’t Mr. Grey).
Dakota Johnson, 24, isn’t embarrassed to embrace her sexuality — and she shouldn’t be! The Fifty Shades of Grey leading lady flaunts what she’s got on the March issue of Elle, and reveals that there’s nothing she won’t do when it comes to those racy sexy scenes.
Dakota Johnson’s ‘Elle’ Cover — Stunning & Sexy
“I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame,” she said in the magazine about the steamy sex scenes between Anastasia and Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).
On the cover of Elle, the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson looked absolutely stunning in a bonded John Galliano dress with thigh-highs by Donna Karan, and red suede Manolo Blahnik sandals.
Currently filming the first film, she of course read the book and was drawn to it — but not because of the reasons that most are.
“I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes,” she revealed. “I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
Dakota On Growing Up With Famous Parents: Sometimes, ‘It’s F–king Awful’
Dakota has grown up in the spotlight — so it’s no surprise that she’s adapted to the A-list fame so well. However, it wasn’t always easy being the daughter of two huge celebs.
“I think people, especially the press, like to pick on children of famous people and I think that’s f–king awful,” she revealed to the mag. “Things get made up. It’s so, so sad. And there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it as a 16-year-old. You’re like, ‘Why? What did I do?'”
So, what do you think of Dakota on Elle? Do you think she fits as Ana? Let us know!
