Fifty Shades of Grey


FIRST LOOK: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ stars, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, cover Entertainment Weekly

“There was a slight fear,” Dornan says now, his wiry frame huddled on a couch in a Los Angeles photo studio. “But beyond anything else, I was really f—ing excited.” -Jamie Dornan

Whoa! Take a look at the very covered up, yet sensual duo starring in the upcoming adaptation of the very controversial novel known as Fifty Shades of Grey. This is our FIRST LOOK at what the two main characters, Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), will potentially look like in the film. EW was on the scene with the first inside interview of the two leads.

If you have been following the news about the adaptation, then you know the drama that ensued while casting went on. Looks to me this production is well on it’s way, releasing on Valentine’s Day 2015! More info on the push:

The news, reported exclusively in this week’s EW cover story, comes on the heels of the studio’s announcement that it has pushed the start of production in Vancouver back a month to allow for the production to prep with its new leading man, Northern Irish actor Jamie Dornan, who plays kinky billionaire Christian Grey. But, Universal says, the casting change is not the primary reason for the new release date.

More pressing is the crowded summer schedule Fifty Shades was originally competing in. Originally set to hit screens August 1, 2014, the film, based on the sexy best-seller by E L James, was set to go up opposite Marvel’s potential new franchise Guardians of the Galaxy starring Chris Pratt and Benicio del Toro. Internationally things are even busier, with many studios pushing their big tentpoles out of next June and July — to avoid competition from the World Cup in Brazil — and into August.


The stars open up about what drew them to the roles, the pressures behind getting the roles right for the fans, and how they feel about baring it all. For Johnson, 24, the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, it meant seriously working out for the first time in her life. “Obviously, I want to look good naked,” the newly brunette actress tells EW. “I totally understand now why people exercise, because it kind of f—ing feels awesome.”

    “…it meant seriously working out for the first time in her life. “Obviously, I want to look good naked,” ” good to know that you have to work out to look good naked….

  • Melissa Flim

    For most people it takes effort to look good, especially naked. It’s great for you that you can be lazy and look good but the majority of the people in the world aren’t that lucky.

    I think you missed the point entirely of what I meant. You don’t need to hit the gym and lose weight to look good naked! I am overweight, not to the point of being very unhealthy but I’m certainly not celebrity slim, and I lead an active lifestyle.. I’m not a gym buff at all but I’m not sedentary. I think I look good naked.. whether people agree or not is irrelevant as we all have our own personal taste. As I work within health care too I am obviously advocate the benefits of physical activity.
    I just think she’s insinuating a rather negative message as it suggests that the only way to look good naked is to shed the pounds.

  • Natalia Belikov

    I think you miss the point too. Going to gym is not just to lose weight, but to get FIT. Going to gym and working out isn`t just good for the looks, but it`s also good to stay FIT and HEALTHY. So if the girl want to workout in order to get hard abs, tight butt and boobs and fit legs and arms, I totally support her. Actually, more people should consider going to the gym, not just to look good, but to stay fit, which means staying healthy.

  • connie

    Like I said, I work in health care and I support a healthy active lifestyle; I completely agree that one one of the ways for that is to go to the gym or partake in group sports etc if someone cannot afford gym membership. However, it’s not the ONLY way to look good naked and what she said just gives out the wrong message about that.. instead it’s about body confidence. Plus ‘healthy’ is not just about physical health – someone might go to the gym regularly, and have as you say tight butt and fit legs etc but if they’re looking in the mirror and having serious body dysmorphic thoughts that impact upon their happiness and mental health then that’s not healthy. So other things like confidence need to be promoted AS WELL as advocating physical fitness etc… THAT’S the point I was trying to make.
