Dakota Johnson played one of the sexiest roles of the year as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, and while we may think that would assist her in landing some seriously hot dates, it actually works against her.

The 25-year-old actress sat down with Ellen DeGeneres and chatted about how the film has changed the way people treat her.

Though Johnson—daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith—is pleased to admit "nobody in my family" saw the racy film, she has had some uncomfortable encounters with those who have…for example, with her cab drivers.

"Well, sometimes, people just say things that are a little bit awkward for me," the star admitted. "Like, I was in a cab recently, and the driver was like, 'My wife and I, we saw your film. We really liked it.' And he goes, '...I thought there could be more sex.'"

LOL! But strangers aside, Johnson says she even struggles with potential love interests.

After revealing that she's still single, DeGeneres asked, "Are people more attracted to you or do you think people are scared of you?"

"I mean, if those are the two options, I guess they're scared of me," Johnson laughs. "They either love me or they're running for the hills…Mostly running for the hills."

Unfortunately, she can't expect that to change anytime soon either, considering she still has two more films to get through the trilogy.

In fact, Johnson told DeGeneres they will start filming Fifty Shades Darker "sometime in the new year." Thus, in true Ellen style, she made sure the brunette actress will be totally prepared to start back up again, gifting her with an Ellen-blue flogger, a pair of Ellen-blue handcuffs, a whip and even a blanket emblazoned with "Ellen's got you covered"—you know, for the time she's naked on set and needs to cover up.
