Dakota Johnson Dishes on Those Steamy 'Fifty Shades' Sex Scenes

Splash News

While kissing a handsome actor doesn't sound like hard work, this star is revealing that sometimes it can be more challenging than it might look. Fifty Shades actress Dakota Johnson says her steamy sex scenes with costar Jamie Dornan are uncomfortable -- especially when there's a whole crew watching. 


While it certainly seems like it would fall into the "nice work if you can get it" category for some, anyone who's seen the Fifty Shades Darker trailers knows Ana and Christian get down and dirty, with frequency.

So, we suppose it makes sense that Johnson might be a tad self-conscious -- who wouldn't?

While speaking with Interview magazine, the actress said, "I'm doing one [of the sex scenes] today. It's not ... comfortable. It's pretty tedious."

She added, "We're not having actual sex. But I've been simulating sex for seven hours straight right now, and I'm over it." 

The steamy shower scene alone would be enough to give anyone goose bumps for a variety of reasons.

Johnson isn't the only one who feels a bit awkward. Apparently, Dornan isn't entirely cozy with the concept either -- despite the fact that the two know each other intimately, pun intended. 

During an interview with Time, the Irish actor stated, "Anyone will tell you that sex scenes, regardless of the content of the film, are always a tricky experience and relatively uncomfortable." 

With Fifty Shades Darker set to be released February 10, we're sure we'll be seeing a lot more of this stunning duo. But the pair has agreed that Fifty Shades Freed will be their final chapter.

We suppose there's only so much getting busy in front of the cameras that these two can take. Fans will just have to settle for -- and savor -- these last two installments.
