She may be getting black and blue for her Fifty Shades of Grey role but Dakota Johnson was just spotted chatting with her redheaded Twilight pal Kristen Stewart. The two actresses, who are connected through their movies’ plots, crossed paths at Chanel’s Haute Couture show in Paris on June 8.
Dakota Johnson, who is set to star as Anastasia Steele in the film version of Fifty Shades of Grey – originally penned by E.L. James as a piece of Twilight fan fiction – bumped into Kristen Stewart at the Chanel’s shindig at Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, June 8. We wonder what they two women dished about, don’t you?
Kristen Stewart Hangs Out With Dakota Johnson
It’s certainly not the first time the Fifty Shades star has crossed paths with Kristen, they were also both at the MET Gala in New York City in May this year. Of course, as the daughter of actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, Dakota is no stranger to celebrity run-ins. The usually recalcitrant Kristen, who is the face of Karl Lagerfeld’s recent collection, beamed from behind her newly cropped hair next to her pal.
Is it possible that the two talked about Dakota’s risqué role? “I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame.” Dakota told Elle of not being embarrassed by the sexual scenes with Christian Grey (played by Jamie Dornan). “I think women should pursue whatever kind of relationship they want and makes them happy, and if that’s S&M, that’s great.”
Kristen Stewart’s 50 Shades Connection
So is K-Stew a fan of the kinky tome? “I’ve skimmed parts of it. When I read the first few pages describing her messy hair, I was like, ‘This is so strange,’” Kristen has said of the novel. “But it’s just so raunchy! I mean, obviously, everyone knows that. But when I see people reading it on planes and stuff, I’m genuinely creeped out. Like, you’re basically just reading porn right now! Get that blanket off your lap!”
So HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Dakota and Kristen should become BFFs? Let us know!
