7 minutes ago Surprisingly enough, even Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey had some trouble shaking it up in the bedroom. The Fifty Shades franchise concluded earlier this year with Fifty Shades Freed, and in retrospect, Dakota Johnson recently admits that it became a bit tiresome filming one sultry scene after the other. In her words: The Fifty Shades franchise may have tackled eroticism such as BDSM, but it was over three installments with often lukewarm storylines to accompany it. Even with an R-rating, the franchise could only go so far and as you can imagine, it got a little ridiculous for its leads Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan after a while. In her interview with The Times, Johnson confessed that it was difficult at times to continue with the franchise much because it "shape-shifted" into something different than she initially thought it would. While the Fifty Shades franchise receives a lot more flack and stigma than most, each installment surpassed $100 million … [Read more...] about Dakota Johnson Says Filming Fifty Shades Sex Scenes Was Tedious

The Coldplay frontman, 41, and the Fifty Shades actress, 28, looked cosy as they watched the performance at TD Garden in Boston on Saturday night. The pair were joined by Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul, 38, and his wife, Lauren Parsekian, 31, for what appeared to be a sweet double date.
