The Fifty Shades of grey movies revolved around a college graduate and her erotic sexual adventures with a young billionaire. While Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan played the roles of the two lead actors, it was rumored that the romantic chemistry presented on-screen was the opposite of how things really were between them off-screen. However, Johnson has now provided some insight into the true nature of her behind-the-scenes relationship with Dornan.
It’s easy to imagine that portraying sexual chemistry with an actor can be challenging when the feelings aren’t there in real life. You’d think something like that would be even harder if the two artists didn’t really get along. However, Dakota Johnson revealed during her interview with Vanity Fairthat she and Jamie Dornan were very cool while making the Fifty Shades of grey movies:
This is certainly good to hear, as there have certainly been instances where protagonists in romantic films have not gotten along. For example, Ryan Gosling and his co-star Rachel McAdams weren’t Noah and Allie filming off-camera the notebookwhile Gosling even tried whither he Gosling tried to get McAdams fired on a certain moment. (Surprisingly, the two ended up dating in real life not long after that.)

The Belfast actor also has said nice things about Johnson, noting that her humorous personality would be great if the two ever hosted an erotic book club together. I’m sure they would have no problem finding members to join.
