Dakota Johnson has described Fifty Shades as an 'incredible love story'
Dakota Johnson has described the bestselling erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey as an 'incredible love story.'
While E.L. James' book was dubbed by many as 'mummy porn', Dakota - who has been cast as the lead Anastasia Steele opposite Jamie Dornan's Christian Grey - thinks it is the love story and 'chemical pull' between the main characters that is the reason it 'affected so many people'.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the 24-year old said she thought 'adding in the sex makes it perfect. Sometimes you feel a bit naughty and that's okay.'
Meanwhile, the film's producer Dana Brunetti has revealed that he would like two versions of the film to be released, to satisfy all the fans of the book. The main version is currently set to be aimed at a R-rated audience in the US (which is the equivalent of a UK 15), but he would also like to see a 'grittier' and more explicit NC-17 (UK 18) rated cut.
Speaking to Collider, Brunetti said: 'This is just my opinion and this doesn't mean this is going to happen, but I always thought it would be really cool if we released the R version and then we had an NC-17 version that we released a few weeks later. So everybody could go and enjoy the R version, and then if they really wanted to see it again and get a little bit more gritty with it, then have that NC-17 version out there as well.'
So, could it be a Fifty Shades double whammy in 2015? At least that would make up for the release date being pushed back six months...
