Get ready to see more of Dakota Johnson in the coming year. A lot more! The actress, 24, is going to be playing the lead role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Of Grey (released February 2015).
Dakota is more interested in the emotions behind the story than the sex, though: "Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there's a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down."
Ms. Johnson, however, says she will not shy away from the notorious bondage and sex scenes which made the novel famous: "I don't have any problem doing anything," Johnson told Elle Magazine. "The secret is I have no shame."
Fifty Shades Of Grey is notorious for its 'bland bondage' and has earned the moniker 'mummy porn' for its watered-down depiction of bondage and sexual content.
Dakota Johnson was determined to bag the role of Anastasia Steele, before she had even read Fifty Shades Of Grey. She excitedly asked managers and agents about the role on a daily basis. Dakota won the part over speculation that it would be given to an actress such as Emma Watson or Kristen Stewart.
Dakota Johnson is the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffiths. Fifty Shades Of Gray will mark her first leading Hollywood role.
