First promotional photoshoot.
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson get into character as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele for the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.
Inside the mag, the 50 Shades of Grey stars open up about what drew them to the roles, the pressures behind getting the roles right for the fans, and how they feel about baring it all.
Dakota on stripping down: “Obviously, I want to look good naked… I totally understand now why people exercise, because it kind of f—ing feels awesome.”
Jamie on not being worried about the sex scenes: “I’m a fairly worldly guy… I grew up in a very liberal place. I’m not saying we had a playroom, but I’m not shocked by [the sex in the book]. It’s essential to tell the story. I can’t believe films that don’t invoke the sexual side of it. So it works for me.”
The film, which begins production in Vancouver on Dec. 2, was originally set for release next August, but has now been pushed to Valentine’s Day weekend 2015.
This is how I show my love.
I made it in my mind because
I blame it on my A-D-D, baby
“I have fallen for someone who’s so emotionally shut down, I will only get hurt- deep down I know this- someone who by his own admission is completely fucked up.”
- “Why don’t you like to be touched?”
- “Because I’m fifty shades of fucked-up.”
“See how good we are together,” he murmurs. “If you give yourself to me, it will be so much better. Trust me, I can take you places you don’t even know exist.”
“How does he do this to me? He’s just touching a small area of my body and the hormones are flying.”
