Still blushing from watching the Fifty Shades of Grey movie trailer? Just imagine what filming that was like for Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson—oh my!
In a Today interview that aired Friday, the co-stars giggled about the "sexual acrobatics" required to get those steamy love scenes just right!
"The reality of it," said 32-year-old Dornan, "is that there's a burly man you don't know very well three feet from your face...which isn't how you usually have sex—[not] me, anyway."
Johnson, 24, deadpanned, "I do, a lot."
Of course, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson's daughter is kidding! "It's more about visually what our bodies look like and what we're doing," she clarified, "so it's more of like a dance. It's like acrobatics."
"Sexual acrobatics," offered her steely-eyed co-star, eliciting a few more giggles.
And those sex scenes won't disappoint—at least not according to author E.L. James, who was extremely involved in the film adaptation of her best-selling book. "What I've seen hasn't been particularly watered down, so, um, yeah," she told Today teasingly. "I thought it was interesting!"
Interesting, huh? Inner goddesses everywhere are already trembling in delight! The wait, though, will seem torturously long: Fifty Shades of Grey, the movie, doesn't hit theaters until Feb. 13, 2015.
