No doubt Dakota Johnson has a lot of fans, but her biggest one might be one of her costars. Fifty Shades of Grey newcomer Brant Daugherty recently did an interview with ET Live Studio, and couldn't strop gushing about working with her.

  • Daugherty is joining the cast of "Fifty Shades Freed" as Ana's personal bodyguard, Luke Sawyer.

    Of being on the set, he said, "It is really mind-blowing to me all of the time. It's just the craziest thing. You're so aware of what it is, and then to come in at the tail end of the third movie and just kind of enter into this world –- I remember walking around Christian's apartment on set and I was just like, 'This set costs more than my house! This is amazing!'"

  • But he really couldn't stop talking about working with Dakota. He's a major fanboy, apparently.

    "She's the best to work with. She's immensely talented and it's always interesting to watch somebody give an amazing performance when you're standing this far in front of them," he said. "There's, like, 5 percent of your brain where you're just like, 'Oh my god, she's just crushing this right now!' And the rest of the 96 percent of you is in character."

    We're not sure about the math on that, but it's clear that he's in awe of the actress playing Ana.

  • Meanwhile, he's nervous about his mom watching "Fifty Shades."

    "I've seen some of the scenes and it looks so good. I'm so excited. I'm a little interested to see how my mom is going to react to it," he dished. "I think my mom would probably say, 'Brant! I told you, when you moved to Hollywood, don't take your clothes off.'"

    Since he's not the one stripping for the camera, we're thinking his mom is going to be OK. But with a bod like that, we wouldn't mind if he showed a little skin. Just saying.
