It wasn’t all excitement for Dakota Johnson as she set off to play Anastasia Steele in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey.


Asked by Vanity Fair to comment on her preparation, the actress said it was “a lot of getting into the character’s head — Ana’s headspace — kind of before she meets Christian [Grey].”

“So it’s a lot of reading, which I love. But she’s an English major, so that’s kind of boring,” explains Johnson.

She had plenty more to say about the role and her experience with filming so far.
