‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ Characters Cover Entertainment Weekly
Filming doesn’t start until next month, but the world is getting its first peek at the much-anticipated ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ movie!
The upcoming cover of Entertainment Weekly features the film’s newly announced stars, Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, in character for the first time. And we even get a good look at the tie made famous on the cover of E.L. James’ best-selling erotic novel!
Dornan, who last month replaced ‘Sons of Anarchy’ star Charlie Hunnam in the iconic role of bad-boy billionaire Christian Grey, tells the magazine about the late-night phone call that gave him the part — and changed his life. “I was sort of pretending I wasn’t waiting, but the phone was in my hand, halfway to my ear,” the Northern Irish actor says. “There was a slight fear. But beyond anything else, I was really f–king excited.”
His Anastasia Steele understandably had concerns of the fitness kind. “Obviously, I want to look good naked,” Texas native Johnson reveals to EW. “I totally understand now why people exercise, because it kind of f–king feels awesome.”

Filming starts Dec. 2 in Vancouver, with opening day set for — wait for it — Valentine’s Day 2015.
