After the disappointment of the first movie still of Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, which was released on Christian Grey’s Birthday in the movie adaptation of E.L. James novel 50 Shades the Irish actor posted a photo on his Instagram that apparently made up to what “Fifty Shades” fan expected which they missed from the first still. In the first movie still posted on the official Facebook Page of “Fifty Shades” Jamie Dornan portraying the Christian Grey, a sexy billionaire was seen in a black leather jacket starring on cam as he sits on the driving seat of his famous black Audi R8 Spyder. But nothing from the image can be noted as to how much of the book will be in movie.
The new still which is supposed to be from movie which Dornan posted on his Instagram account, however, the 32-year-old “Fifty Shades of Grey” actor showed that there is more to the movie than a sexy billionaire sitting behind his wheels. The new picture shared by Dornan on his Instagram with a caption reading “You Like?”, shows the actor standing wearing an unbuttoned grey shirt and a loosened tie holding a glass of alcohol in his left hand staring down in his white diesel boxers at a blindfolded girl supposed to be Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) who is kneeling on the floor. However the photo is not from the upcoming movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” but from previous photo shoot for GQ in 2006. The blindfolded girl in the photo is not our Anastasia Steele but a model Rosie Huntington-Whitley.
Last weekend Rita Ora who plays the character of Mia Grey in the highly anticipated movie “Fifty Shades” posted a fun snap on instagram of hers, Dakota Johnson and of a fashion designer and a daughter of Paul McCartney Stella McCartney with a caption that reads “ Reunited with my ladies @stellamccartney #dakota #arrgghhhhhhhh.
Meanwhile like many actress Lucy Hale also auditioned for “Fifty Shades of Grey.” The “Pretty Little Liars” star may have lost out of Dakota Johnson who will be playing the role of Anastasia Steele in the upcoming movie but she has shared some details about the audition. Lucy Hale says it was awkward. “It actually was just me [in the audition]. It was a two-page monologue of exactly what you would think it would be, “Hale told.”Very uncomfortable, but it was sort of one of those things where you just had to go for it or you’re just gonna look lame — hopefully, I didn’t look lame.”
The movie “Fifty Shades of Grey” which stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson in its lead role, Jamie will play the role of S&M obsessed billionaire Christian Grey and Dakota will play the role of Anastasia Steele a young college graduate. It has been reported the movie will be far more romantic than erotic when it comes to taking E.L. James work on big screen. The much anticipated film will be released on a day before the Valentine’s Day 13 February 2015.
Don Johnson’s daughter Dakota Johnson may be the star of the upcoming movie Fifty Shades of Grey, but that doesn’t mean that he’s a fan of E.L. James kinky romance tale.
In an interview on Friday with The Telegraph’s Seven Magazine , Don Johnson 64 who was promoting his latest project “Cold in July” was once again asked with the questions regarding his daughter’s role in the highly anticipated movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey penned by E.L James which stars Dakota Johnson, 24 as virginal college graduate Anastasia Steele, who falls for a BDSM- Practicing billionaire Christian Grey played by Jamie Dornan, is a big hit among the readers worldwide, Don Johnson doesn’t appear to be among Fifty Shades fan. Don Johnson is famous for his role in the hit series “Miami Vice” said “ I probably will not see it just because it’s not a movie I would see,” He also told the magazine, going on to compare the flick to similar blockbuster adaptations in recent years. “I’ve never seen “The Vampire Diaries,’ I’ve never seen “Twilight.” It’s in a category of films that I just wouldn’t be interested in,” Johnson added.
Don Johnson 64, also told magazine that he had made a pact with his daughter that he would not watch her debut as a lead in a big-budget film. He also said “I don’t know whether it is embarassing or not, this is the family business,” he said in the interview for the newspaper’s Seven magazine. “We portray characters and this is the character that Dakota is portraying.”It’s difficult for people to separate who we are from the characters we portray, but not for me” he added.
Although Dakota is now part of the “family business”, Johnson hasn’t always been so supportive. Appearing on the Graham Norton show on Friday, he said: “I told my children that as long as they were in college I would payroll them.”She told me she wasn’t going to school because she was going to be an actress and I was like, ‘’I’ve never seen you in a show and you’ve never taken a class, so how is that going to work out for you?’”Two months later she is in The Social Network and she got her own TV series. She’s a fine actress and is doing better than me!”
Similar to Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan’s friend also have some strong opinion about his role in 50 Shades of Grey. “A friend of mine said, ‘I heard about Fifty Shades. Congratulations on the role. That’s going to be disgusting. I won’t watch it,” Jamie Dornan told London’s Evening Standard in March.
Before getting cast as Anastasia Steele, Dakota Johnson had a small role in Aaron Sorkin’s 2010 Facebook film, and played the title character in axed American sitcom Ben and Kate , which is her biggest credit yet. In 2013 it was announced she would be playing Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, which will be directed by Sam- Taylor Johnson. The movie will be premiered on Valentine’s Day,2015.
When you are Christian Grey’s person of interest, it shows. And that is what happened in a scene that the cast and crew of Fifty Shades movie adaptation filmed in Vancouver recently. In the scene that they shot, Christian Grey, the rich entrepreneur turned Ana’s masochistic partner, gifted a red Audi A3 to her. The scene can be interpreted as a romantic one considering the way Grey surprises her by placing his hands on her eyes and slowly revealing the red AudiA3 to her. It is not that Ana does not own a car, but the one she has is a blue VW Beetle which she endearingly calls Wanda. Despite that Grey still presents a Red Audi A3 to her because it is safer than ‘Wanda’.
Ana is quick to name the Red Audi A3 ‘The Submissive Special’, because now that she is in a BDSM inspired relationship with the self made billionaire, she knows that this is the same gift that the suave entrepreneur gifts all his submissive partners. In the scene, the 31 year old actor is looking dapper in a customised suit paired with a crisp white shirt and a tie, while the 24 year old actress looked sensual in a gray dress. This is not the first scene where we see the crackling chemistry between Jamie and Dakota. They have been filmed shooting the ‘contract scene’, the ‘cafe scene’, the ‘hardware store scene’ and now with the ‘car scene’ it is becoming even more obvious that the two get along like a house on fire.
In fact, even when they are not shooting crucial scenes together, they can be spotted enjoying and sometimes dancing on the set too. Some insiders feel that Jamie is ‘overprotective’ of Ana and that comes across whenever Ana is on the set, but gets distracted when someone comes over to talk to her, and the poor soul cannot say no. It is then that Jamie has to step in and break the conversation, but politely. Ana on the other hand is known to be the friendlier one, not that Jamie is rude or such, but he is just a little more reserved. Having said that, it is also known that Jamie is a thorough gentleman and this was evident when he was shooting for the jogging scenes in the rain.
In between he had to oblige his fans by stopping for autographs. The closeness between Jamie and Dakota has not gone down well with Dakota’s real life boyfriend, Jordan Masterson, who has become super possessive of the actress, especially after it was revealed that the racy scenes in the movie will be explicitly shot, along with rumours that Dornan might also pose full frontal. No matter what the excuse or the scene is, watching Dakota as Ana and Jamie as Christian Grey is always a pleasure and if that includes a racy scene or two, we don’t mind.
When you have an erotic novel and a film is based on that, what can you expect bit racy scenes. But the situation with the Fifty Shades movie adaptation is a little different as the producers have already said that the film version of the novel will be toned down quite a bit, in other words the film will be ‘less racy’ than the book. Though the producers have already said that the film would have two versions, one an NC-17 rated version and the other one will be a more toned down version for the less mature audience.
The producer of the fifty shades of grey movie, Michael De Luca has also said that the lead pair of Dakota and Jamie are ‘hot’ and we agree too, that their great chemistry has been palpable in most of the scenes that they have shot together. The news is that the two are good friends off screen too, and recently it was also noted that Jamie Dornan is also taking his onscreen persona a little too seriously off the screen too. It is being said that the 31 year old Irish hunk and father of one, is ‘overprotective’ of the 24 year old Dakota Johnson.
It was evident to an unnamed source on the set that the actor, who keeps to himself on the set, thinks that the actress gets ‘distracted’ easily, because there are times when she would speak to people, the cast and the crew members, and Jamie would have to chip in and excuse her or ask them to end the conversation, politely of course. He is almost being the dominant partner that he is onscreen, off the screen too. On the other hand, Dakota is being led by him, just like the submissive partner that she plays to him, in the movie adaptation.
In some other scenes too their chemistry has been seen and felt by the audience and the onlookers. The scene that immediately springs to one’s mind is the ‘contract scene’ where the pair meets up and he gives her a brown envelope which contains her copy of the contract that lays down the rules.The scene shows the ample chemistry between the two, because it is the first scene where they almost kiss. Instead of kissing her dominant partner on the lips, Ana opts to kiss Grey on his chiselled cheeks and the camera captures the look of surprise on Grey’s face.
Another scene worth mentioning in this context is the bike scene where Grey rescues Ana from a speeding bike and while he is inquiring to find out if she is doing alright or not, he gently pushes a strand of hair behind her ears. Sam Taylor-Johnson has been adept at capturing the right expressions this time too. And while we are going gaga over the chemistry they have in the exterior scenes shot, what about those racy scenes that all fans and followers are waiting desperately for?
The news is that though the scenes have been toned down considerably, the producers have made sure that to give Dakota and Jamie the required privacy only 12 people would frequent the room as opposed to the 60 people who are generally there on set, while shooting an interior scene.
