Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson lacks ‘passion’

Fifty-Shades-of-Grey-creditThe sinful cinematic adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey is having some serious problems with its star. Sources from the set recently told Us Weekly that producers demanded reshoots after finding the film’s stars, Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan didn’t have enough onscreen chemistry. Sources say the footage didn’t feel passionate enough and the film’s lead actress in particular was pointed out as a problem. “Dakota isn’t coming off sexy enough,” the source told Us Weekly. “[Anastasia Steele] needs to be naive, not a dishrag.”

A representative from Universal Studios, which is reportedly hoping to make the film into a trilogy, denied the rumor, saying that there is no chemistry problem between the two actors. “No one should question the heat or intensity of our actors.”

    Fifty Shades of Gray the movie with these to unknown actors will be an EPIC FAILURE on its opening weekend due to several reasons.
    1. Super High Expectations, 2. This Dakota isn’t going to work as the lead just wait and see 3. Christian Gray my what a faceless man and this one that they have chosen is just not what is expected. EPIC FAILURE on the horizon, there will be no profit here just wait and see. If it is a mega hit I for one will be shocked.

    This movie could have been a megahit; millions of women are waiting for it. Thus, the film makers could have afforded expensive, seasoned talent in these roles and gotten fantastic performances. Instead they hired unproven people like Dakota and they’re getting what they’re getting. How disappointing!!

    I loved this movie- seen it last night, never read the books, and was in awe over it, the chemistry was surreal and HOT, and with using actors that are not in ALL the movies makes it way more believable and intense!!
