While Charlie Hunnam was busy promoting Sons of Anarchy‘s sixth season  in Hollywood over the weekend, his Fifty Shades of Grey costar Dakota Johnson spent Sunday, Sept. 8, bonding with author E.L. James and producer Dana Brunetti in New York City. The novelist shared a picture from their afternoon get-together via her official Twitter account.

"The beautiful, talented, funny as feck, Dakota Johnson," James captioned. "Oh and that bloke @danabrunetti." Johnson, 23, is currently in the Big Apple shooting Cymbeline.

Brunetti previously defended hiring Johnson and Hunnam to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the film adaptation of James' book trilogy. "There is a lot that goes into casting that isn't just looks. Talent, availability, their desire to do it, chemistry with other actor, etc.," he tweeted. "So if your favorite wasn't cast, then it is most likely due to something on that list. Keep that in mind while hating and keep perspective."

Fifty Shades of Grey, which will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, begins production this fall.
