Dakota Johnson on "Fifty Shades of Grey": "The secret is I have no shame"


Elle magazine

Dakota Johnson, who plays Anastasia Steele in the upcoming film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey," will be heating up the big screen alongside Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey when the film comes out next year.

Now, the 24-year-old daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson has posed for a sultry shoot for the March issue of Elle magazine, and is opening up about taking on the role.

"Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there's a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down," she told the magazine of reading "Fifty Shades."

And she doesn't plan on holding back when it comes to playing Ana.

"I don't have any problem doing anything," she said. "The secret is I have no shame."

The March issue of Elle, with Johnson's full interview and fashion shoot, hits newsstands Feb. 18. Check out an additional photo below:
