Dakota Johnson says that there’s so much sex in the Fifty Shades movies that it would have been impossible to film all the scenes in one day.
The 28-year-old actress is back in the role of Anastasia Steele for the third movie Fifty Shades Freed which releases at local cinemas on Wednesday.
Asked about the filming schedule for the love scenes with co-star Jamie Dornan - who plays Christian Grey - the brunette beauty explained: “If we could do all of the sex scenes in a day or so, that would truly be in the Guinness Book of World Records.
“A lot of it was dependent on the locations, and because we shot the second and third film back to back, the sex scenes were kind of grouped in all together for the most part. And some were not in those two weeks.”
Dakota reveals that her most challenging sex scene appears in the new episode, when she’s handcuffed and blindfolded in the infamous Red Room.
She told Marie Claire magazine: “The most difficult one by far - I think in all three movies - was a sex scene in the third film where I was handcuffed with my arms and legs to the gate.
“It’s like a fence thing that comes down. And I was blindfolded. And it was kind of shocking, because I didn’t realise that no matter how prepared or rehearsed I was, when your senses are taken away like that, you can’t control the way your nervous system will react.
“So it was really tricky to navigate that scene. It was kind of difficult.”
Dakota also said that even though she’s now a veteran of the films, she still finds the sex scenes with Jamie to be awkward.
She confessed: “It’s never easy. It’s not casual and it’s not fun. It never got easy.”
