“I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame… Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
Dakota Johnson (or shall we say, Anastasia Steele) opened up to Elle magazine about filming those intense sex scenes for the upcoming “Fifty Shades Of Grey” movie. Apparently, it wasn’t too nerve-wracking for her to let it all go for the camera. It sounds like Johnson dug into the deeper aspects of her character’s romps with Christian Grey, which I hope means we can expect a movie that’s as complex and explorational as it is sexy. A girl can wish! PopSugar
“You’re a virgin?” he breathes. I nod, flushing again. He closes his eyes and looks to be counting to ten. When he opens them again, he’s angry, glaring at me. “Why the fuck didn’t you tell me?”
I don’t know if that’s the scene “Fifty Shades Of Grey” stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are filming, but it is so much more fun to look at photos of them onset and imagine the shitty bits of dialogue coming out of their mouths. Can’t wait for all 90+ minutes to hit theaters! See a few more pics after the jump… [Photos: Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
Everyone makes fun of me at the office for being a germophobe. But read this story and tell me I’m wrong: professors in Belgium ran toxicology and bacteriology tests on library books and found that Fifty Shades Of Grey had the herpes virus. Oh, yes. The two profs checked out the 10 most borrowed books in the Antwerp library to test them for germs and drugs. Not only did the E..L. James BDSM erotica have traces of herpes, but they also found traces of cocaine on every single other book. Relax, though: you won’t get a contact high or a persistent vaginal itch from any of these books because the concentrations of both were so minimal. (Just to be safe, Belgians, you could always wear condoms on your hands while reading!) Let’s talk about the appropriate way to use library books, people. Tip #1: DON’T GIVE YOUR LIBRARY BOOKS STDS. [TIME]
Jamie Dornan made waves and headlines when he accepted the role of Christian Grey in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie—you know, the one that was infamously ditched by Charlie Hunnam! Once we stopped gazing at photos of Dornan in his undies from his modeling days, we got curious: What’s his wife like?
Here’s the lowdown on Mrs. Jamie Dornan, Amelia Warner … and why she won’t have to worry too much about his on-screen affair with Dakota Johnson’s Anastasia Steele! Read more at Your Tango…
Wondering which wine pairs well with your favorite S&M love story? Look no further than Fifty Shades of Grey wine, presented by none other than author/oenophile E.L. James herself. The wine comes in two vague-but-sexy-sounding varieties: “red satin” and “white silk.” Here’s what E.L. James has to say on the official Fifty Shades Wine website:
“Wine plays an important role in Fifty Shades of Grey, reflecting the sensuality that pervades every encounter between Anastasia and Christian. I’ve always had a penchant for good wine, so helping to create the blends Red Satin and White Silk felt like a natural extension of the Fifty Shades Trilogy. I hope all of you curl up with a glass to savor the romance and the passion.”
A bottle of official Fifty Shades wine will set you back $18, but if you already blew your Christian Grey-inspired merchandise budget on a pair of rhinestone handcuffs, don’t worry, you can always print out a picture of the book cover and tape it to a bottle of Trader Joe’s Two Buck Chuck. I guarantee it will produce the same effect. [ShortList]
“There were three pages of sides that I was going to audition with. I read them and then was like, I really can’t do this. … The scene was, like, the girl telling her friends about some sexcapade she had. But it goes into extreme detail and uses the word ‘sperm’ a couple times. I was like, I don’t know guys, I have to go home to my grandparent’s house in a few months at Christmas, I don’t know if I can do this. … It was intense. So mad props to the people who are going to do it. You had to be able to take it seriously and not laugh or turn bright red.”
– “The Carrie Diaries” actress Chloe Bridges revealed to Cosmopolitan that she was asked to audition for the role of Anastasia Grey in the 50 Shades Of Grey movie, but there was more sperm talk than she could handle. I totally respect that. Methinks, though, Bridges will probably get spanked for talking publicly about the auditions. And it won’t be by Christian Grey in the Red Room of Pain.

When Jessica heard that British hottie Charlie Hunnam had been cast as Christian Grey in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, she told me she was unenthused, mostly because she wasn’t sure the admittedly sexy “Sons of Anarchy” actor could successfully play a sexual dominant. So I dug up this clip of Hunnam on the UK version of “Queer As Folk,” giving that guy who played Tommy Carcetti on “The Wire” and Littlefinger on “Game of Thrones” a handjob in a bathroom (NSFW, obvs). He’s not paddling anyone’s ass, but I think Jess might be willing to give Charlie a shot now.
After seriously months and months of speculation, Fifty Shades of Grey fans finally have their Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. As we reported yesterday, they’ll be played by Dakota Johnson, daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, and star of the short-lived FX sitcom “Ben & Kate,” and Charlie Hunnam, the hot dude who played Jackson ‘Jax’ Teller on “Sons of Anarchy” and Raleigh Becket in the recent robots vs. monsters movie “Pacific Rim.” The British actor, 33, is poised to (maybe) become the next Brad Pitt.
But who is Charlie Hunnam, anyway? Considering we’re about to spend a whole lot of time watching him whip Anastasia Steele into submission, we should know these things, right?
