Marcia Gay Harden Spills Details on Heated Scene in 'Fifty Shades Darker'

marcia gay hardenWe love the fact that the woman who plays the mother of Christian Grey called Fifty Shades Darker a love story with toys (OK, she's not his actual mother). But even more exciting is the fact that Marcia Gay Harden is sharing details about her fight scene with Kim Basinger, the older woman who introduces her movie son to the world of BDSM.


The scene in question is when Mrs. Grey (Harden) is at a party with Elena Lincoln (Basinger). The women have been friends for years -- it's how Christian first meets Elena. Disturbingly, Elena ends up being his Mrs. Robinson and seduces him when he is 15. The abuse continued as she was his domme, making him her submissive.

Awful. This is why Christian is so messed up. Well, one of the reasons.

It's all quite twisted. Darker is most definitely darker. Harden shares some tidbits about the scene where she confronts Elena after finding out about a few of the awful details. Harden tells Access Hollywood, "[I]t's a party ... and she comes in and they're having some argument and my character understands what happened with them -- not all the details, but she understands that she abused him and I slap her."

Harden and Basinger in a slap scene?! We're excited for that one. 

Harden goes on to say how the scene had to go through many takes, but the slap was "fake." Movie magic, of course. Still, we can just imagine how incredible this scene is going to be. There is a lot of emotion happening, and as Harden shared, she's mama bear. 

See? It's not just the sex scenes we're excited about.
