Stars Loosen Up As Fifty Shades Of Grey Hits London
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan caught larking about on red carpet...
There's been talk of a "frosty" relationship between Fifty Shades of Grey stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, but if so things certainly seemed to have thawed by the time the movie's London premiere hit Leicester Square last night.
The pair were captured laughing and joking together as they posed for photographers, with Johnson attempting to show even more cleavage that she did the night before in Berlin and Dornan sticking to a sober dark suit.
Dornan also posed with wife Amelia Warner and both the leads lined-up with director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author EL James.
And director STJ's newest interview was almost as revealing as her leading lady's dress - as she explained that both the leads had strict nudity clauses in their contracts.
"They both had contracts about what could and couldn't be shown," she told Stylist.
"There was never going to be explicit sex. Jamie's married, Dakota's in a relationship and we wanted an R rating."
She also elaborated further on her beef with the author during filming, indicating that things had been even more fraught that we'd imagined.
"It's pretty much the most challenging thing I've done so far," she added. "The stress has been off the f**king Richter scale.
"One of the more difficult aspects of it was working with the book's author EL James, who was also a producer.
"She was on set most of the time reminding me what a huge production this is, thanks to the book's 100 million fans. I had to honour the book, and she was there to make sure I did."
Johnson conceded that she hadn't always got her way - but remained reflective about it.
"Not to say we didn’t fight – we did. I'm not a fighter, but she seems quite good at it. Some battles she's going to be upset about - some I'm going to be upset about.
"But if it wasn't her, it might've been a diva actress. If it wasn't a diva actress, it might've been a studio. There's always friction when you're making something like this."
On dealing with the stress, she added: "I'm not very good at it. I do transcendental meditation, so that helps. I'm not good at confrontation – in that situation I'm going to lose, most likely.
"I'm not a shouter, and I'm not a bully."
Is she inferring that somebody else IS a shouter and a bully then?
