Dakota Johnson, who will be playing Anastasia Steele from the book series Fifty Shades of Grey, shows off her style of seduction in March’s issue of Elle Magazine.
According to Elle Magazine, the 24-year-old actress had no problem discussing her comfort level with what is expected from the role or what it is like being E. L. James’ Anastasia Steele.
“I don’t have any problem doing anything,” Johnson said. “The secret is I have no shame.”
Although there was an undeniable hype following the book series, that all began as a fan fiction trilogy, Johnson told Elle what intrigued her personally about the book and role.
“Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes,” she explained. “I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.”
Despite the movie not hitting theaters until next year, Johnson seems to be making fans already. Robbie Myers, Elle’s Editor-in-Chief, complimented Johnson, saying, “Dakota was really open and candid in her interview and has a great mix of confidence, humility and humor.”
“The chemistry is there, they genuinely like each other,” he said.
The March issue of Elle Magazine hits stores Feb. 18.
