Dakota Johnson: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ is an incredible love story

Dakota-Johnson-02 In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dakota Johnson, who has been cast as Anastasia Steele in the adaptation of E.L. James’ erotic novel, said she couldn’t stop crying when she was told she had the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey.

“When I got the call and they said ‘You got the offer’ and I couldn’t speak,” she recalled.

“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 lying 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.”

“I just really understand it,” she said. “I think it’s an incredible love story and that’s why it’s affected so many people. Erica (EL 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 love makes it perfect. Sometimes you feel a little bit naughty and that’s okay.”

    I like Dakota and will watch a movie with her, though I think the movie will turn into something almost porn. I couldn’t read the books, so I hope I would be bale to watch the movie since it has Dakota in the cast now. I liked he interview. She is so candid and open with her auditory. This is something I truly appreciate about actors and actresses and famous people in general.
