Dakota Johnson is filming 50 Shades of Grey, and the new issue of Elle magazine has the first shocking photos of the young actress posing in her role as aspiring sexual submissive Anastasia Steel. Yeah. Here’s the thing: Dakota Johnson is sexy, and the pics are sexy, and we really appreciate Elle taking the time to provide a really interesting interview with the young gal (who, let’s not forget, is the offspring of Melanie Griffin and Don Johnson)–but we were kind of hoping for something a little kinkier.
Well, some of the COED staffers were. Let’s not start naming names here. We know some guys might not be interested in the kinky details behind the unexpected success of the 50 Shades of Grey book series. That’s why we published a quick guide to the first book. The important thing here is that we’re getting some hot pics of Dakota Johnson. Especially if you’re a leg man, and don’t need to see Dakota in rubber stockings or something like that..
Dakota sure knows how to pitch a movie, though. She assures us (or the Elle interviewer), “I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame.” That’s encouraging. We’re reminded that her mother (Melanie Griffith, remember?) got her first big break playing a porn star in the Brian De Palma movie Body Double. That was back in 1984–although Melanie wasn’t too daring. She played the only female porn star in the history of the industry who wouldn’t do lesbian scenes.
Dakota sounds like she wants to get daring, even though she spares Elle any details about what turned her on about 50 Shades. “I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes,” Dakota explains. “I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
Which is kind of sexy, right? Unless she means breaking down our credit rating. We’ve met gals like that. Anyway, it’s nice to get a glimpse of the future–and, just to make sure you’re happy, check out these other pics of Dakota below, when she was just being sexy without duct tape being part of the conversation…
