Dakota explained, "I mean, what a gamble!" "It's a cool story, and I think it's different, and different is what I'm about". She talked to writer Rob Haskell about everything from her obsession with mid-century houses to her unusual childhood to, well, yes, what everyone really wants to know about: the sex scenes in the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel. There's no jewellery to give you a clue about social status. She just opened up about it for the February issue of Vogue.

Perhaps Dakota Johnson has her reason for sharing this and it's not to humiliate co-star Jamie Dornan but part of promoting "Fifty Shades Darker".

She has two more Fifty Shades films coming up, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed (plus all the attendant nudity that will come along them them), but she's not sure how long she will continue with nude scenes throughout her career.

"I'm fascinated by young women coming to terms with their sexuality", she said.

Northwestern basketball player Jordan Hankins took own life
Hankins, a 5-foot-8 sophomore guard from Indianapolis, averaged 3.6 points and 11 minutes per game this season for the Wildcats . Northwestern University said it learned Monday of the death of women's basketball sophomore student-athlete Jordan Hankins .

Speaking to Vogue, Dakota sad: "Let's be honest about it. People are naked when they fuck". "So it becomes purely about the performance", she added of the steamy scenes. "Maybe I have more of a European mind-set about these things". As for the Dornan rumors: "We hate each other and we're having an affair, so everybody's right".

Also returning from Fifty Shades of Grey are Academy Award® winner Marcia Gay Harden, Jennifer Ehle, Luke Grimes, Rita Ora, Victor Rasuk, Eloise Mumford and Max Martini, who are joined for the first time by Oscar® winner Kim Basinger, Hugh Dancy, Bella Heathcote and Eric Johnson.

On taking her clothes off on screen: "Will I stop doing nude scenes when my boobs start sagging?" "It can be very attractive and tasteful, and the materials can be luxurious", she tells Vogue.

The Fifty Shades Darker actress says she admires the character's ability to incorporate so many conflicting traits into one personality, which is something Dakota says she tries to do in her personal life. "It's not like being on Hollywood Boulevard and walking by a ball-gag store".
