As the world prepares to see a lot of her in Fifty Shades Of Grey, Dakota Johnson reveals how she got into shape
The actress, who plays innocent student Anastasia Steele in the adaptation of E L James‘ saucy novel, admits that she went to extreme lengths to ensure she was buff and fuzz-free for the movie.
‘I was going be naked, so I wanted to look good,’ says Dakota, 25.
‘I did a lot of working out and had more waxing than any woman should have.’
Ouch! It sounds like Dakota‘s co-star Jamie Dornan, who stars as Ana‘s dominant lover Christian Grey, was also committed to looking the part as both stars embarked on fitness regimes.
‘Jamie and I actually shared a trainer,’ reveals Dakota. ‘It was important to me that Ana‘s body look like that of an active college student.’
While Dakota was concerned about her figure and body hair, co-star Jamie had other issues. Just before filming of Fifty Shades Of Grey began, the actor’s wife Amelia Warner was pregnant with their daughter so Jamie was wary about spending too much time away from her to focus on his exercise programme.
‘I had to do a lot of work to get in shape because Christian‘s someone who’s very anal about that,’ Jamie, 32, tells Glamour. ‘But it wasn’t six hours a day.
‘You don’t want to turn to your heavily pregnant wife and say, “I’m going to the gym for six hours. Text me if you go into labour”.’
We don’t think Dakota or Jamie had much to be worried about – they both look pretty hot in the sizzling Fifty Shades trailers we’ve seen so far.
Dakota didn’t stop at stripping off for the movie either. She also recently appeared nearly naked in the video for Canadian singer The Weeknd‘s sexy track Earned It, taken from the Fifty Shades soundtrack.
