Dakota Johnson sounds like she is sick of filming the Fifty Shades sex scenes.
Fifty Shades Darker is shaping up to be the least “sexy” movie to ever hit theaters. While it’s tough to be an actress in Hollywood, it may be even harder for an actress to film sex scenes over and over again. As Hollywood actors have pointed out in the past, it’s not easy replicating intimate scenes in front of the camera for hours on end. It gets’ hot, sweaty, and sometimes just plain old nasty.
That’s why Dakota Johnson’s recent comments about the new Fifty Shades Darker movie is not that surprising. Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades movies, has announced that she is “over” the Red Room where she is billionaire Christian Grey’s (Jamie Dornan) BDSM partner.
“We’re not having actual sex,” the 26-year-old told Chrissie Hynde for Interview magazine. “But I’ve been simulating sex for seven hours straight right now and I’m over it. It’s not…comfortable. It’s pretty tedious.”
Johnson and Dornan are filming sequels for Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, based on EL James best-selling erotic novels.
It’s important to point out that this is just the latest incident of Fifty Shades drama. James Foley became the new director after Sam Taylor-Johnson quit following arguments with James while filming Fifty Shades of Grey.
Meanwhile, Jamie Dornan reportedly spent time visiting a real-life sex dungeon to research the movie role. “It was a very strange way to spend a Tuesday evening and I probably won’t have many like it,” he said. “I was sober but they did give me a room temperature beer which I nursed through the experience. It was…an eye-opener.”
Fifty Shades Darker hits theaters February 2017.
