“Fifty Shades Darker” Cast Interviews – Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Rita Ora, Marcia Gay Harden

Fifty Shades Darker finally shows a little more chemistry between Dakota and Jamie! Jamie seems as if he let loose and doesn’t seem so robotic throughout the film (he also worked out a little more, so that was an added bonus!) I also loved how to the actors would laugh and giggle in some of the more raunchy scenes because it makes it more “real” and relatable. Are there a few scenes that are still a tad awkward? Sure! BUT! How many of us are really breaking out the floggers, handcuffs, and playing the roles of dominants and submissive? Uhhhh not that many! (If so more power to ya!) So it’s only natural for some of these scenes that seemed so touching or tantalizingly sexy while we sat behind our novels reading at all hours of the night, to play out a little awkwardly or make us a tad uncomfortable when they are happening right in front of our faces in a crowd full of people. For me, the most awkward scene wasn’t even a sex scene! It was when Christian attempted to play the submissive….but once again it’s one of those moments where if you’re not into that stuff and you’ve never experienced it first hand, it throws you off a little bit.
