Dakota Johnson recently revealed how it was when ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ was being made. She called the making of the movie, ‘psychotic’.
For the unversed, ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ chronicles a different kind of relationship between a journalist, Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) and a young businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). Grey introduces Steele to a world of BDSM and the movie explores their kinky yet emotional relationship.
The movie naturally became controversial due to the portrayal of so much skin and the eroticism of the subject.
However, many may not know the issues that happened internally between the cast and crew members of the movie. Dakota Johnson has been vocal about the issues she had while filming this movie, especially the issues she had with the author E.L. James, whose books were adapted into the movie.
Now, Dakota Johnson has opened up further about the problems she had during the making of the ‘Fifty Shades’ movies in an interview to Vanity Fair.
She said, “If I had known at the time that’s what it was going to be like, I don’t think anyone would’ve done it. It would’ve been like, ‘Oh, this is psychotic.’”
Dakota was then asked if she regretted making those movies to which the actress said, “No. I don’t think it’s a matter of regret. But no, I don’t regret it.”
Dakota added, “I’m a sexual person, and when I’m interested in something, I want to know so much about it. That’s why I did those big naked movies.”
Dakota also addressed her issues with author E.L. James and said, “I signed up to do a very different version of the film we ended up making. She (James) had a lot of creative control, all day, every day, and she just demanded that certain things happen.”
Dakota’s next project is ‘Madame Web’ where she plays the lead and this will be Dakota’s first time playing an adapted version of a comic book role.
