Dakota Johnson Is Single, Dishes New Details on ‘Fifty Shades Darker’

Dakota Johnson is stripping down — again.

Dakota Johnson reveals that playing Anastasia Steele wasn’t exactly great for her love life. 

The 25-year-old made her Ellen debut on Friday (Sept. 18, 2015) to talk about her upcoming film, Black Mass with Johnny Depp, but all Ellen DeGeneres wanted to do was talk about Fifty Shades of Grey.

After confirming that she’s still single (she and her boyfriend Matthew Hitt split back in February, but were spotted together in May), DeGeneres asked, “Are people more attracted to you or do you think people are scared of you?” To which she jokingly replied.

You mean, like when they run away from me? I don’t know…I guess that if those are the two options, I guess they’re scared of me. They either love me or they’re running for the hills.

Later in the show, the actress accepted some Ellen-themed S&M toys, including an “Ellen Blue” flogger and “Ellen Blue” handcuffs, that DeGeneres says she can use in her next two movies. Johnson confirmed that the sequel Fifty Shades Darker will begin filming “sometime next year”.

That means we should expected teasers very soon. Watch Johnson’s awkwardly-charming interview on Ellen above.
