“They struggle to name anything they have in common with their characters. They struggle more to come up with three positive words to describe one another, and they are visibly upset with each other’s choices.”
All quotes taken from this Gawker.com article.
Jamie Dornan, Glamour, January 30, 2015:
“Some of the Red Room stuff was uncomfortable. There were times when Dakota was not wearing much, and I had to do stuff to her that I’d never choose to do to a woman.”
Jamie Dornan, Elle UK, January 2, 2015, on visiting a sex dungeon:
“It was an interesting evening. Then go back to my wife and newborn baby afterwards … I had a long shower before touching either of them.”
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, Today, July 25, 2014:
Natalie Morales: What is it like shooting together. I mean, is there that instant chemistry?
Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson: [Shake heads no.]
Natalie Morales: No. You hate each other.
Jamie Dornan [Nods head yes.]
Dakota Johnson: [Studies ceiling.]
Natalie Morales: He’s hard to work with?
Dakota Johnson: [Loud exhale.]
Jamie Dornan, Elle, January 12, 2015:
“Mass appreciation doesn’t always equate to something good. Think of Hitler! But I think, in this case, it must. It simply must.”
Dakota Johnson, Glamour, January 30:
“But I don’t want my family to see [the movie], because it’s inappropriate. Or my brothers’ friends, who I grew up with. I think they’d be like, ‘Blegh.’ Also there’s part of me that’s like, I don’t want anyone to see this movie.”
When they got the call telling them they got the part, Jamie:
Went to sleep.
Didn’t call anyone.
That’s enthusiasm for you.
