Now, Dakota Johnson has spoken more about the problems she faced while filming Fifty Shades of Grey to Vanity Fair. The actress 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.'” she added. But she had no regrets about doing it. “No. I don’t think it’s a matter of regret. But no, I don’t regret it.”
“I’m a s*xual person, and when I’m interested in something, I want to know so much about it. That’s why I did those big n*ked movies,” Dakota Johnson added. The Lost Daughter actress also spoke about the disparity with author E. L. James. “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 added.
