Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson sat down with Today's Natalie Morales to talk more about shooting Fifty Shades of Grey.
"I can see myself in her. I can see a lot of her in me," said Johnson of her Anatasia Steele character. She went on to reveal that Dornan's nickname is "Golden Torso," from his underwear modeling days. More on that here.
E.L. James, author of the books, noted that "from the very get go, I've said it'd be great to discover two unknowns." She has been on the set watching every scene. And she says the sex is definitely "happening."
When asked about filming those scenes, Johnson said, "It's more of like a dance. Acrobatics."
Added Dornan: "Sexual acrobatics."
"I think people are going to be really, really pleasantly surprised," said James.
And while on set, Morales learned a new word — one the Today show couldn't air on morning television. You can see that here.
And just in case you missed it…
"Fifty Shades of Grey" is based on the romantic novel written by E.L. James in which a student, Anastasia Steele's (Dakota Johnson) life changes when she meets billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). VPC
