It could be quite the career-making role, and Dakota Johnson cant wait for everyone to see her as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey.
In her interview with Entertainment Weekly, the 21 Jump Street starlet explained, “I just really understand it. I think it”s an incredible love story and that”s why it”s affected so many people.
[Author E.L. James] did a really good job of explaining how that just can happen sometimes and you have this chemical pull to someone. Adding in the sex makes it perfect. Sometimes you feel a little bit naughty and that”s okay.”
As for her audition, Dakota chose a sexually-explicit monologue to show the producers she meant business. “They weren”tand I can”t think of a better word right nowpussy footing around the subject.”
Back in August, Johnson was elated to hear she was cast in the female lead- “They said, “You got the offer!” and I couldn”t speak. I was just so relieved. I was crying and crying. Water was literally squirting out of my eyes because I had been so stressed out. And there”s this giant Doberman Pincher laying on the bed next to me. And he just slowly fell asleep. It was so special and [this dog] didn”t give a f–k about me and what I was going through.”
