Just like her onscreen alter-ego, Dakota Johnson admits that her time as Anastasia Steele in the erotic “Fifty Shades” franchise has opened her up to see the beautiful side of BDSM.
Jamie Dornan has made it clear that he isn’t too fond of the the S&M lifestyle. Johnson, however, seems more intrigued by it. In British Glamour’s March 2017 issue, the 27-year-old starlet dished on her new outlook on sex toys after filming numerous racy scenes for the movies.
“Oh some of that stuff is just so beautiful! When we first started on ‘Fifty Shades’, that wasn’t a world I was privy to at all, and I soon found out there are all these different tiers. There are some things out there that are really grimy and nasty, and then there are really beautiful, intricate and chic toys. Actually, whole aspects of the BDSM world are truly beautiful,” she said.
While she sees the beauty, Johnson still intends to keep that part of her world from her famous parents, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith – who have no intention on watching any of “Fifty Shades” films.
“It’s too uncomfortable for them. It’s one thing if a film has 1 sex scene in it, but with this, a large part of the premise is the arc of their sexual relationship, and I think that’s a little inappropriate for my family to watch,” she told the publication. We see her point.
Since starring in “Fifty Shades of Grey”, Johnson’s fame has skyrocketed. But that doesn’t mean she’s eager to sign onto future movies that feature a lot of sex scenes. “It’s not that it has put me off entirely, but I’m ready to do other stuff. And maybe they will be sexy (projects), or maybe they will be the complete opposite. But I do know that I’m ready to move on,” the star explained.
In anticipation for the sequel, we are also pretty stoked about the movie soundtrack which will feature some of our favourite pop music heavyweights.
