As I used to be studying excerpts from this Glamour UK interview with Dakota Johnson, it occurred to me that the quotes may truly be attractive… if solely they had been being mentioned by another person fully. Like, if this was Michael Fassbender or (God assist me) Benedict Cumberbatch speaking about the fantastic thing about intercourse toys, I’d be so into this interview. As it’s, I’m simply studying these quotes in Dakota’s voice in my head and all the things is simply so vanilla and unsexy. Dakota covers Glamour UK as a result of she’s selling Fifty Shades Darker, and she or he largely sounds over the entire thing.
She’s able to put FSOG within the rearview: “It’s not that it has put me off fully, however I’m able to do different stuff. And possibly they are going to be attractive [projects], or possibly they would be the exact opposite. However I do know that I’m prepared to maneuver on.”
Whether or not she has regrets about signing on to those movies: “It is available in waves. However this mission isn’t going to be my swan tune. It has put my life on a path that I didn’t plan to go down, however I do really feel happy with it. And the movies have allowed me to take action many alternative initiatives and journey a lot. In the long run, Fifty Shades has plopped me in a world that I actually wished to be in.”
Whether or not her mother and father have seen the movies: “They haven’t as a result of it’s such a difficult factor. It’s too uncomfortable for them. It’s one factor if a movie has one intercourse scene in it, however with this, a big a part of the premise is the arc of their sexual relationship, and I believe that’s slightly inappropriate for my household to observe.”
She appreciates the world of intercourse toys now: “Oh a few of that stuff is simply so lovely! After we first began on Fifty Shades, that wasn’t a world I used to be aware about in any respect, and I quickly came upon there are all these completely different tiers. There are some issues on the market which can be actually dirty and nasty, after which there are actually lovely, intricate and stylish toys. Really, entire features of the BDSM world are actually lovely.”
I just like the stability that she finds when describing a franchise that made her an enormous star and but the franchise isn’t actually one thing to be happy with. She’s pleased that FSOG “plopped” her right into a world the place she’s getting higher scripts. However she’s not pleased about the truth that she’s just about at all times going to be recognized with this horrible character. As for the remainder of it… I like that Dakota strives to be sex-positive. She isn’t out right here, judging the BDSM group for his or her kinks.
