Johnson and Dornan appear on the cover of Glamour. Johnson discusses how she prepared for her role as Ana in Fifty Shades of Grey.

Jamie and I actually shared a trainer. It was important to me that Ana’s body look like that of an active college student. And I was going be naked, so I wanted to look good. I did a lot of working out and had more waxing than any woman should have!

Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.

Dakota Johnson interview

Seacrest interviews Johnson during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her role in the TV show Ben & Kate. 

She’s not very good at being flirty. She’s not very smooth at all. I think she’s just trying to keep it together, and raise her daughter in the best way possible. Her brother, played by Nat Faxon, comes into town and moves back in with me, and he’s all over the place. He wreaks havoc on my life in the best way possible. We get into some pretty bizarre situations together.
