Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan are busy promoting their upcoming movie "Fifty Shades Darker" in time for Valentine's Day weekend. However, rumours have been rife that Anastasia Steele actress was not impressed with Christian Grey actor's performance.
"Fifty Shades Darker" trailers showed some steamy scenes, but the movie is more of a thriller than the original "Fifty Shades of Grey." In the latest movie, Anastasia has welcomed back Christian in her life but according to her own terms.
In an interview with Vogue, Dakota Johnson revealed that Anastasia is a badass woman who is hyperintelligent, hypersexual, very tough but very loving. Her character has so many different aspects that it does not make sense in one person. But she thinks the story is cool and different.
Dakota Johnson admitted that she has read about the rumours that she is having an affair with Jamie Dornan, and even stories that they cannot stand each other. Both are conflicting stories to which the actress did not elaborate further.
In doing their intimate scenes in "Fifty Shades Darker," the actress said that she and Jamie have worked together for so long that there were no longer inhibitions. It was "very honest" and "very trusting."
Trusting Jamie Dornan was a gamble, Dakota Johnson revealed when she spoke about nudity in "Fifty Shades Darker." Good thing he did not turn out to be a total dick as there were no makeups, no clothes to tell about the story, no jewellery. Everything was purely based on performance.
"Fifty Shades Darker" will have preview starting on Feb 9 in select theatres according to USA Today. Aside from Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, characters from the original movie are back like Marcia Gay Harden and Victor Rasuk. New characters include Kim Basinger as Christian's former lover, Bella Heathcote, Eric Johnson and Jack Hyde.
