And, from her description, the flick isn’t afraid to go there, much like E.L. James’ bestselling novel. “There were three pages of sides that I was going to audition with,” she told Cosmopolitan. “I read them and then was like, I really can’t do this.”
She then broke down just how graphic the film will get. And it sounds like things will get pretty steamy between Dakota and co-star Charlie Hunnam, who will play Christian Grey. “The scene was, like, the girl telling her friends about some sexcapade she had,” she said. “But it goes into extreme detail and uses the word ’sperm’ a couple times. I was like, I don’t know guys, I have to go home to my grandparents’ house in a few months at Christmas, I don’t know if I can do this.”
She added, “It was intense. So mad props to the people who are going to do it. You had to be able to take it seriously and not laugh or turn bright red.”
Well, fans will have to wait until the film’s release next summer to see just how “intense” things will get with Sam Taylor-Johnson in the director’s chair.
