There was plenty of nudity in Fifty Shades of Grey. But most of it came from female star Dakota Johnson, while Jamie Dornan never had to fully show it all. That might change with the upcoming sequel Fifty Shades Darker. At least, if Dakota Johnson has any say in the matter.
Dakota Johnson is currently promoting her Valentine's Day weekend comedy How to Be Single. And if you've been paying attention, she's had quite a wild junket ride. Things wrapped up with the actress being asked about co-star Jamie Dornan's private parts, and whether or not the man should go full frontal in the 2017 sequel. Speaking with WatchWhatHappensLive, she declared that she definitely wants to see J.D.'s big P. Here's what she had to say to host Andy Cohen when asked whether or not she thought Dornan needs to finally bare it all.
"That's an interesting question, I'll probably get in trouble for this answer... yeah. Yeah. I'm gonna make him get fully naked in the next one. Everybody wants to see the D, the Dornan D. We should start a movement, a campaign."
In Fifty Shades of Grey, we get to see Dakota Johnson go full frontal, so it only seems fair. In the movie, she shows off her breasts a number of times, and we get to see her backside all throughout the movie. And there is a lot of pubic hair on display. Basically, the female star of the movie was asked to let it all hang out, while the male star got off a little easier. Jamie Dornan does go topless, and he does put his butt on display. He teases his pubic hair. And yes, we do get to see the top of his penis. But just the very tip. There is no full frontal male nudity on display in the first chapter of this erotic saga. And a lot of fans believe it isn't fair.
Fifty Shades of Grey was a blockbuster hit, opening on Valentine's Day Weekend last year to the tune of $570 million worldwide. Though, the movie wasn't without its behind-the-scene problems. Author of the book upon which the movie is based, E.L. James clashed heavily with the movie's director Sam Taylor-Johnson, which led to the filmmaker bailing on the sequel Fifty Shades Darker. And she took screenwriter Kelly Marcel with her. James Foley is now directing the much-anticipated sequel, from a screenplay by E.L. James's husband Niall Leonard.
Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan had their own notorious spats on set, and are said to have not gotten along at all. But they will return to reprise their roles as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele after getting a huge pay bump. Rita Ora, Kim Basinger, Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford and Max Martini are all participating the sequel. And Eric Johnson has recently been cast as Christian Grey's rival Jack Hyde.
Fifty Shades Darker and the trilogy ending Fifty Shades Freed will reportedly shoot back-to-back, with the first sequel in theaters for Valentine's Day 2017, and the climax debuting Valentine's Day weekend 2018. Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, alongside E L James, the creator of the series, will produce both movies. So, what do you think? Should Jamie Dornan man up and go full frontal in Fifty Shades Darker? Or do they need to save that big reveal for Fifty Shades Freed?
