She said: "Nudity is really interesting for an actor. Jamie and I worked so incredibly closely for so long. There were no inhibitions, and it was very honest, very trusting. But I mean, what a gamble! What if he had turned out to be a total d**k?


Since Fifty Shades of Grey debuted in 2015, Dakota has been a style star to watch on the red carpet. But one of the reasons her performance was so attention-grabbing was the lack of clothes she wore during the film.

Johnson graces the cover of the February issue of Vogue, in which talks about her erotic Fifty Shades of Grey sequel. “Nudity is really interesting for an actor,” she says. The actress notes that she and co-star Jamie Dornan “worked so incredibly closely for so long,” adding, “There were no inhibitions, and it was very honest, very trusting.” Johnson continues, “But I mean, what a gamble! What if he had turned out to be a total dick? There’s no makeup. There are no clothes to tell you a bit about the story. There’s no jewelry to give you a clue about social status. So it becomes purely about the performance.”

Johnson appeared nude in multiple scenes in Fifty Shades of Grey and also stripped down in the movie A Bigger Splash. Like its predecessor, Fifty Shades Darker is rated R for strong erotic sexual content and graphic nudity, as well as language. She has two more Fifty Shades films coming up, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed (plus all the attendant nudity that will come along them them), but she’s not sure how long she will continue with nude scenes throughout her career. “Will I stop doing nude scenes when my boobs start sagging? I don’t know,” she says. “Maybe I have more of a European mind-set about these things. I don’t want to see someone wearing a bra and underwear in a sex scene. Let’s be honest about it. People are naked when they f–k.”

When the first installment of 'Fifty Shades' was released, it was met by its fair share of both bad and good reviews but Dakota is "truly proud" of what she and Jamie helped create. She shared: "I’m truly proud of it. It’s a cool story, and I think it’s different, and different is what I’m about." The brunette beauty also poured cold water on the rumours she and Jamie, 34, aren't good friends. She quipped to the February issue of Vogue magazine: "We hate each other and we’re having an affair, so everybody’s right. How about that?"
