Dakota Johnson, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson's daughter, is hardly one for public appearances, but when she does, she is honest, sincere and quite frankly, unapologetically outspoken. Perhaps these are some of the most alluring aspects of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" actress. Dakota, who recently graced the cover of Vogue UK gave an impassioned interview about the film industry, her movies and in particular, "Fifty Shades of Grey."
The cinematic adaptation of E.L. James' trilogy has been criticised for its lack of passion and erotica on screen, but Dakota concurred with the director's vision and said in the interview that she is really proud of "Fifty Shades of Grey."
"I don't need to distance myself from that. The more work I do, the more the general public sees the different things I can do. Do I think it opened doors? Yeah. More people know my name," reported Daily Mail (via Vogue UK) quoted her as saying.
The actress, who played the role of Anastasia Steele will appear alongside Jamie Dornan in the sequel titled "Fifty Shades Darker." According to the latest update from the sets, "Fifty Shades Darker" will be shot alongside another sequel, "Fifty Shades Freed." The filming will begin early 2016. The films, directed by James Foley is expected to be louder and will include more erotic scenes between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, reported Movies News Guide.
Recently, the "Black Mass" actress said that she experienced an emotional void after "Fifty Shades of Grey" was released. "What did I do afterwards? I was working - I kept going. The night I hosted 'Saturday Night Live' was the end of promoting the movie and then...I think I blacked it out. I went into an emotional void," the 26 year old actress said.
Dakota Johnson's next film in the E.L. James trilogy, "Fifty Shades Darker" is expected to release on 10 February 2017 while "Fifty Shades Freed" will release on 9 February 2018, according to Variety.
