Dakota Johnson Had to Superglue Her Underwear for Fifty Shades Sex Scenes
Dakota Johnson is at the center of Fifty Shades’ hottest scenes, but the process of making them can get pretty unsexy. Even after three films in the steamy blockbuster series, filming bedroom sequences with her costar Jamie Dornan still gets awkward.
It’s not casual and it’s not fun. It never got easy,” Johnson told It also didn’t help that she had to wear not-so-adhesive modesty undies while filming nude scenes. “I had these sort of strapless thongs that had glue on them,” she added. “It’s not glue, but it’s sticky. They’re, like, basically if it were a nipple pastie, but underwear. But it’s only sticky at the top, it’s not sticky the whole way.”
The solution? Superglue. “It would also come off because the adhesive would wear out, so then they would superglue it to my body so that it wouldn’t fall off,” Johnson explained. “And I would wear two of them.”
Luckily, it didn’t hurt. “It’s not painful, I mean, it’s barely anything,” she continued. “But I guess you have some sense of being covered. It’s f*cking bizarre.”. After picking out a modesty sock for his nude scenes, the actor realized the one he chose had already been worn by someone else.
“I sort of picked one that I liked the look of and the shape of, and I picked it up and then in the seam, it said ‘Inmate #3’. It was like sewn in,” he told Jimmy Kimmel earlier month. “I was like sh*t! This has been used before.”But it looks like the behind-the-scenes awkwardness paid off—Fifty Shades Freed in its opening weekend.
