‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’s Dakota Johnson On Being Naked & Tied Up
Fans of E.L. James’ sexy novel series have been jumping at the bit to see and learn any and all things about the upcoming film, and now they are closer than ever.
In an interview with Glamour magazine for their March 2015 issue, Dakota is brutally honest about filming some of the more intimate scenes with Jamie.
“It’s stressful enough to be tied to a bed naked in a scene. But then they call cut, and you’re still tied to the bed, naked,” Dakota explained, describing what their life was like while shooting.
Thankfully, it wasn’t all bad for Dakota. Not only does she reveal that her mom, actress Melanie Griffith, explained to her that she has the right to request a closed set, which she did, but she had Jamie on her side.
“Jamie would be the first one to throw a blanket over me,” Dakota shared.
Aw. It’s sweet to know that Jamie and Dakota had chemistry that allowed them to bond and be protective of one each other, isn’t it?
Dakota & Jamie Had Their Director On Their Side
Not only did Dakota and Jamie have each other to rely on, but their director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, was also playing for their team.
“We left anything that was emotionally difficult or of a sexual nature until the last few weeks of filming,” Sam explains in the interview.
“By that point we had time to get to know each other, to build that trust, which was important to be able to go into the next realm.”
Jamie also chimed in that, “Sam, as a director, has an amazing quality of making everyone feel relaxed.”
