Seven years after the release of the first fifty gray faces MovieAnd the Dakota Johnson is ready to be honest about how hard it is to make movies behind the scenes. Johnson spoke frankly to Vanity Fair About the creative clashes on set, saying that while she doesn’t regret the film industry, if she had known how “psychotic” the process was, “I don’t think anyone would have done it.” She also shut down media rumors that she and co-star Jamie Dornan had any bad blood or secret feud.
“There was never a time we didn’t get along,” she said of Dornan. “I know it’s weird, but he’s like a brother to me. I love him so much. And we were really there for each other. We had to trust each other and protect each other.”
as far as fifty shades herself, Johnson said she signed on for what was supposed to be a completely different movie. “I’m a sexual person,” she began, “and when I’m interested in something, I want to know a lot about it.” “That’s why I made those big nude movies. I scored to do a very different version of the movie we finished making.” Johnson emphasized that the studio, directors and book author E.L. James, who goes by Erica’s side, all created problems.
“she [James] “She had a great deal of creative control, all day, every day, and she just demanded that certain things happen,” Johnson said. “There were parts of the books that didn’t work in a movie, like the inner monologue, which was sometimes incredibly cheesy. It wouldn’t work saying it out loud. It was always a fight. Always. When I auditioned for that movie, I read a monologue from Character [the Ingmar Bergman classic from 1966] And I was like, “Oh, this is going to be really special.”
But when Charlie Hunnam, initially cast as Christian Gray, pulled out of the film, James was very angry, Johnson said. Vanity Fairthey canceled the text.
“I was young. I was 23. So it was scary,” she said of her three-movie contract. “It just got crazy.” There were a lot of different controversies. I couldn’t really talk about it at all, because you want to promote a movie the right way, and I’m proud of what we made in the end and everything turns out the way it’s supposed to, but it was hard.” Indeed, Johnson, along with first film director Sam Taylor, tried Johnson and Dornan, salvaging some of the original text.
“We were doing excerpts from the movie that Erica wanted to make, and then we were going to take excerpts from the movie we wanted to make,” Johnson said. “The night before, I was rewriting scenes with old dialogue so I could add a line here and there. It was like a mess the whole time.” Johnson said that the only original scene that appeared in the movie was when Anastasia and Christian determined their sexual contract. “It’s the best scene in the entire movie.”
Johnson said Vanity Fair They do not regret making the movie. “I don’t think it is a matter of remorse. If I had known…,” she began, then. “If I had known at the time that this was what it would have been, I don’t think anyone would have done it. It would be like, ‘Oh, that’s psychotic.’ But no, I don’t regret it.”
