Fifty Shades Of Grey star Dakota Johnson opens up about filming the hottest sex scenes ever!

He might play domineering S&M fan Christian Grey on screen but it sounds like Fifty Shades of Grey star Jamie Dornan is much gentler in real life.

Dakota Johnson, who plays Christian‘s innocent lover Anastasia Steele in the adaptation of E L James‘ racy novel, admits that Jamie was really good at making her feel less vulnerable after filming explicit sex scenes together.

‘It’s stressful enough to be tied to a bed, naked, in a scene,’ says Dakota, 25. ‘But then they call “Cut” and you’re still tied to the bed, naked.

‘Jamie would be the first one to throw a blanket over me.’

Aw! Jamie, 32, also tried to be aware of the risks to ensure Dakota didn’t get hurt, though there was the odd bit of pain involved.

‘He did a lot of studying, just to make sure that I was as safe as possible,’ explains Dakota. ‘But there were some painful moments.’

In the trailers we’ve seen so far of Fifty Shades Of Grey – which will be released on 13 February – we’ve seen steamy clips of Christian and Ana in the Red Room, a decadent boudoir in Christian‘s apartment which is used as a playroom for his saucy antics.

With bondage gear including whips, eye masks and chains in the footage, we can see why Jamie felt nervous about what he was doing to Dakota.

‘There were times when Dakota was not wearing much, and I had to do stuff to her that I’d never choose to do to a woman,’ the actor admits.

‘I felt very protective and aware that it probably wasn’t easy for her to be put in those situations.’

To prepare for the role Jamie visited a real-life dominant and submissive but Dakota chose not to go in order to reflect Ana‘s apprehension.

‘I didn’t get to go to the sex dungeon,’ she tells Glamour.

‘I wanted to keep myself a little bit distanced from it at first because I wanted Ana‘s reaction to certain things to be honest and real.’
