From the moment she signed onto Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota Johnson presumably knew she was opening herself up to judgement. After all, we still have a long way to go in terms of sex positivity in this country, and the movie deals with some taboo subjects in a very explicit way.
More the the point, the films have thrust Johnson into the spotlight, a place that people seem fond of judging. And she isn’t into it.
“It’s like an incessant mosquito noise,” she said during a recent interview. “Very weird. People feeling the need not only to judge everyone all the time but also to pronounce themselves on it, it’s extremely boring. A waste of energy and time.”
Johnson is set to star in the franchise’s next installment Fifty Shades Freed in this February. Watch the trailer below.
