Ever since the first Fifty Shades of Grey footage aired for a lucky few at Las Vegas CinemaCon last month there’s been worries the movie won’t live up to the steamy nature of EL James’ book. The film’s star Dakota Johnson insists fans don’t need to worry though.
The first teaser footage left those in the know a little disappointed with viewers pointing out the first scenes at least focus more on Christian and Ana’s love story than their bedroom antics. Of course we’ve yet to see any form of trailer so it’s hard to tell just how director Sam Taylor Johnson will be bringing the book to the big screen.
Rumours though have also been flying that the movie won’t contain all of the most memorable scenes from the book as producers are keen to avoid America’s highest cinema age rating which bans under-18s.
So what does Dakota have to say? The actress, who stars opposite Jamie Dornan in the film, stopped by Singapore’s Calvin Klein event this week where she was of course asked about Fifty Shades fever.
While the shy actress did her best not to reveal too much about the super secretive project, she did tell press on the red carpet: “Everything is a little bit secret but I can tell you that I think people will be pleased with the movie, hopefully!”
“I’m doing this movie because I love it and I believe in the story and I believe in the books and I hope that I will do them justice“, she adds.
And it sounds like whatever rating the movie gets, it will be too much for Dakota’s famous parents, Hollywood stars Don Johnson and Melanir Griffith. The actress inists that “no, they won’t be watching the movie – not with my permission.
“Anyway, I don’t think the movie is something that my parents would want to see!”
