Dakota Johnson Is Seriously Focused on How Ana's Body Looks in 'Fifty Shades Darker'

dakota johnsonWe can all look at Dakota Johnson and feels she is perfect the way she is, but the truth is that we all have our hang-ups. And because her character Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker is naked so much, Dakota got very serious about her workout regimen.


Celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson told ITV that Dakota started her workout plan way before filming on Fifty Shades Darker started. When your backside is going to get a lot of screen time, that is most certainly something that gets done on your list of priorities. Sure there is the editing room where so-called flaws can be fixed, but that's not the way Dakota works. She's dedicated to the role of Ana and she wanted to embody Christian Grey's submissive and love of his life like no one else can.

I suppose that left little time for her love life, which she claims suffers as a result of her being Ana. Maybe it's all the time she spends at the gym or with a personal trainer or doing Pilates or whatever else it is she partakes in to look as incredible as she does, but it's also because some guys think she is just like Ana. They think she wants to be tied up and spanked and so they are supposedly scared to ask her out on a date.

Dakota admitted that sometimes she feels "lonely" but to curb those feelings, she watches movies and reads books and finds a way to "cherish" her "solitude." She's hyper-focused on being Ana right now so that's what's important.

So, in a nutshell, she isn't exactly missing out on a love life because she is playing a woman in love who gets to kiss and roll around naked with Jamie Dornan. Sure, it's not the real thing, but it's sort of close. Then she gets to go home to a quiet house without anyone wanting to watch something else on TV and just relax with her solitude? Sounds heavenly. And, of course, she's working out a whole lot so she gets to exert even more energy that way all while reaping the rewards of her body in incredible shape.

I'd say that's quite fantastic.
