First Pic of Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele Is Disappointing at Best (PHOTO)

Dakota JohnsonNow that filming for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie is officially underway, we're finally getting a look at Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele. Photos of the actress were snapped in between takes in Vancouver.

And while she really does fit the physical description of Ana perfectly, something about the transformation just seems a bit ... well ... BLAH to me.

Sure, the dark hair and bangs put Dakota right into character. But doesn't her overall look seem a bit disappointing?


I know Ana is supposed to be kind of a plain Jane and all -- but Dakota just looks so frumpy in this shot. Granted, she's dressed for Seattle weather with the jacket and scarf -- but doesn't she give off way less of a wow factor than you'd expect? (Or maybe that's the point ...)

She just looks kind of worn out or something. And I guess that would make sense if this particular scene is supposed to be after one of her steamy all-nighters with Christian. But given that this pic was taken on day one of filming -- it's probably safe to assume she hasn't met him quite yet, right? (Unless they're filming out of order, of course.)

Since this is only our first glimpse of Ana, I guess we shouldn't use this pic to judge whether or not she'll be a hot ticket in the film. But hopefully for some of the more (ahem) animated scenes -- the stylists will up her sexy factor just a little bit for the sake of the flick.

Is this how you pictured Anastasia Steele?
