The Key to Filming '50 Shades of Grey,' Says Dakota Johnson, Is to 'Have No Shame'

… and that’s probably why Ms. Johnson — who I adored in Ben & Kate — took the role. In an interview with Elle Magazine, Dakota Johnson — who is the female lead in 50 Shades of Grey — argues that the more interesting parts of the book — and the movie that’s adapting it — are in the ways they Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey “were breaking each other down emotionally,” and not the actual sex scenes.

More interesting? Maybe. The reason why anyone cares about 50 Shades of Grey? Nope. Which is why she’s posing like this on the cover of Elle:


“I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down,” Johnson said, adding that she has no problem doing anything in the movie. Why? “The secret is I have no shame.”

Join the club, Dakota (see, e.g., this post).
