“It’s really unsexy.”
Dakota Johnson went the 'extra' mile for her love scenes in latest film, 50 Shades Freed.
The 28-year-old actress spilled some behind-the-scenes secrets of making the third and final installment of the film franchise in an interview with Marie Claire.
According to Johnson, her and co-star Jamie Dornan's sex scenes were always difficult. “It’s never easy,” she said. “It’s not casual and it’s not fun.”
Part of that challenge might have to do with the fact that she had to wear strapless thongs that covered her unmentionables — undergarments that needed to be superglued to her body.
“I had these sort of strapless thongs that had glue on them. It’s not glue, but it’s sticky. They’re, like, basically if it were a nipple pastie, but underwear. But it’s only sticky at the top, it’s not sticky the whole way,” she said. “It would also come off because the adhesive would wear out, so then they would superglue it to my body so that it wouldn’t fall off. And I would wear two of them.”
“It’s not painful, I mean, it’s barely anything. But I guess you have some sense of being covered,” she added. “It’s f—— bizarre.”
Dornan didn’t have it much easier, according to Marie Claire. The 35-year-old actor had to wear a “little pouch” to cover his genitals. “It’s super not glamorous,” Johnson joked. “It’s really unsexy.”
