Dakota Johnson Discusses the "Psychotic" Experience She Had Filming "Fifty Shades" by Saying, "I Signed Up For a Very Different Movie." -

Making the bodice-ripping trilogy was “mayhem all the time,” according to Johnson, who described rewrites and conflicts over creative control.

Johnson said she “signed up to do a completely different version of the picture we ended up shooting” before becoming famous for her work with Jamie Dornan in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” which debuted in 2015, and its two sequels.

Johnson admitted to Vanity Fair that she is a sexual person who craves information when she is interested in anything. “I made those large naked movies because of that.”

Johnson admitted that “[E.L. James, who goes by Erika] had a lot of creative power, all day, every day, and she basically insisted that certain things happen.”

The inner monologue, which at times was exceedingly cheesy, was one of the sections of the books that simply wouldn’t work in a movie. Speaking it out wouldn’t be effective. There was constant conflict. Always.”
