Dakota Johnson & Jamie Dornan film more ’50 Shades’ exteriors: sexy or budget?


I kind of love that the paparazzi has infested the Vancouver set of Fifty Shades of Grey. This whole thing is so budget, and it’s not like we’re really going to be “surprised” by the story or what happens to these characters. The only real surprises will be how hardcore the sex scenes are and how the characters are styled. That’s it. And since Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson aren’t performing sex acts on each other in public (yet!), we’re getting a better look at the clothes and the styling as the weeks go on.

These are more exterior-filming photos from yesterday – from what I gather, Anastasia and Christian ran into each other and they do a few dance steps (?) and he spends a lot of time looking at her longingly as she bites her lip and tries not to cry out of… frustration and stupidity, perhaps. Again, I have to say… Jamie is hot. If I was an overgrown Twihard who loved the book, I think I would be happy with everything having to do with Jamie’s Christian.

As for Dakota’s Anastasia… I really do feel sorry for Dakota (even though she’s absolutely perfect for this character). I remember how pretty Dakota looked before these Fifty Shades stylists got ahold of her. Pre-bangs, when she was on the red carpet months ago, she was very attractive. I feel like the stylists (especially the hair department) are actively trying to make her look “average”. And I just can’t with her awful hair. I’ll say one nice thing though: Dakota has a great figure for jeans. Her butt looks so cute.

    I like the bangs and that’s all I can say.

    • Charlie says:

      I see nothing wrong with her hair & I like the bangs. The bangs give that youthful, innocent touch that is needed to pull off her character.

    • Anne says:

      I read the books and these two do absolutely nothing to make me want to see a movie of them.

  2. QQ says:

    Exteriors Aka one of the many poorly written Public stalking incidents in the “book”

  3. FingerBinger says:

    The movie looks like it’s going to be terrible. I like her scarf though.

  4. Stef Leppard says:

    Her hair = awful.
    Jamie = so broody hot!

    • Lee says:


      I mean why is her hair color like 4 different shades and so patchy?

      But yes, Jamie looks good.

    • littlestar says:

      Ya! I’m surprised at how hot he is! Very much how I pictured Christian to look. She actually looks like how I pictured Anastasia too – frumpy and boring :D .

  5. Elisabeth says:

    No one is going to see this movie for the ‘exteriors’

  6. NorthernGirl_20 says:

    Read the books, hated them.. movie is going to be terrible. This is not at all how I pictured Christian however.. I pictured him more handsome and bigger.

  7. Coco says:

    I’m surprised to say this but… I like him, A LOT!

  8. V4Real says:

    Yeh! I can’t wait to not see this movie.

  9. Dani says:

    I actually think she’s starting to look better. Her legs/butt look insane in those jeans. Jamie is realllly hot.

  10. T.C. says:

    She has bags and lines under her eyes. Unless she lied about her age she’s too young to look that haggard.

    • We Miss You Enclave_24 says:

      Yep, she looks bad. Maybe she stays awake at night regretting her decision to be in this obviously low-budget tacky movie. Kristen Stewart 2.0

  11. LOL says:


  12. Ama says:

    He looks hot but too young…

  13. umyeah says:

    Jamie really has that intense, brooding, bordering on menacing look down pat. The years of modeling have helped him master it. I still think she looks too old for the part, but she might be able to pull it off with her acting.

  14. Buckwild says:

    I’m also wondering if she isn’t supposed to be skinnier? not saying Dakota is not slim in any way, just because in the book they talk about how Anna needs to eat because she’s sooooo skinny over and over again

    • don't kill me i'm french says:

      yes,where are the anorexic actresses when we need them?

    • Florc says:

      Dakota has a healthy figure. Fit and actively eating. Anastasia is figity and very thin. Not to mention she looks way too old for how the book painted anastasia. Sure bangs make most ladies look younger, but you can’t rely on it.

      This movie might break even. The critics will rain hate on it. The public will bicker about accuracy. The end result will be people going to see it mostly out of curiousity. If it makes a slight profit they’ll start production on the 2nd book.
      I’ll likely see if when a friend rents it at red box. DVD. Not wasting Bluray on this.

  15. umyeah says:

    He really does exude sex. Yum.

  16. Amy Tennant says:

    Am I going to have to read this thing? I don’t have a lot of patience for fanfic in general, and I threw the real “Twilight” across the room after about 30 pages. I’m just starting to get curious about what it’s really about. I’d check it out from the library if I weren’t afraid of getting book herpes.

    • blue marie says:

      ha, you’ll get book herpes for just thinking of checking it out..

    • muffintop says:

      LOL, don’t grab it from the library, there’s a lot of shade and/or side-eye when you’re seen holding the book. I was able to check out the Kindle book through my library and onto my iPad. Only then, did I have total discretion to read this pile of crap.


    • Emily C. says:

      Don’t read it. Reading it will kill brain cells.

    • Lux says:

      Don’t do it! (At least wait until someone invents brain bleach).

    • Kate says:

      Amy, don’t waste your time reading the book. That’ll be hours of your life that you’ll never get back. Read the reviews on Amazon! Reading the terrible reviews is much more entertaining than reading the book.

      I read a first-chapter sample for free on my kindle and I cannot believe how bad the writing is. I wouldn’t contribute a DIME for any of this drivel. There are plenty of aspiring writers out there who CAN write, and it’s just wrong that this travesty was actually published. Just my two cents….

  17. marina says:

    Sorry but that dude does not come close to someone who is supposed to run a billion dollar industry. She’s fine. Not that it matters because the book was so awful I won’t see the movie. Just sayin’

  18. lady mary. says:

    well i like Jamie ,lets hope for his sake the movie does an alright buisness.

  19. eliza says:

    This entire film is budget, just like the budget books.

  20. Ajla R says:

    Tragic.. In what universe is she an Ana Steele??
    Jamie, on the other hand, is sexy as hell.

  21. An says:

    God, he looks good. She looks way too old for a 23 year old though.

  22. Sophie says:

    Dude is crazy hot. Perfect Christian.

    She is too old and too tall (at least in relation to Jamie).

  23. Emily C. says:

    Dornan’s face looks squashed, and his head is both small and almost perfectly cube-shaped. I thought the same thing about Tom Cruise back in the day. He’s about that hot.

    Also, the shots themselves wouldn’t be hot even with the sexiest actors in the world. There is no smiling. Looking super sad and ZOMG INTENSE is not hot. It’s uncomfortable-making.

  24. BluRnnr says:

    Blech… a waste of good digital space……

  25. jellyfish says:

    I truly did not think this movie could get any worse, but those bangs have made it 10x more terrible than it already was.

  26. femputer says:

    i’ll be honest, i think dakota looking so frumpy is on purpose and based on the book. after she meets mr. grey and gets her kink on, she’ll be transformed, maybe slowly, maybe all at once, but a transformation will occur. i bet her styling will become much more appealing as we see more shots from filming.

    also, i’m surprised at how much i like these images. he looks great and i think the two of them have chemistry that’s tangible even from the photo. that look he’s giving her as she walks away? HAWT.

  27. Tails says:

    All I have to say is at least her outfit has improved from the others we’ve seen. And she looks less haggard here.

  28. Applapoom says:

    They could at least have invested in a sharp suit and amazing shoes for him. Does not look at all like a mysterious billionaire.

    • moon says:

      Right! His suit looks incredibly men’s warehouse budget…And that’s Jamie Dornan, it must take a lot to make him look so frumpy.

  29. Aud says:

    As much as I hate her whole look, they’re kinda hitting in dead on with how she seems at the beginning of the books. She’s supposed to be young, innocent, naive, clueless, awkward and mousy.

    He’s growing on me as Christian, she’s really not. That said, I really don’t have high hopes for this movie. And if they kept it even remotely close to the books, it would be banned in the US lol.

  30. Rae says:

    I am going to watch it, not going to lie.

    Dakota is slowly growing on me and I actually think she looks a lot better as a brunette rather than a blond.

    Jamie is hot. The main reason I am going…My thirst is showing!!

  31. Seapharris7 says:

    If you’re like me & refuse to read the books, but are still curious:


    This is a hilarious blog recap. It has all three books & truly shows how ridiculous these books are & how they’re a blantant plagiarism from Twilight.

  32. Tig says:

    Jamie has the look down- he was a great choice for CG. I am plus/minus on Dakota’s casting as Anna.

  33. weeeee says:

    wow who picked these two

  34. ladybug says:

    It’s funny how much Dakota looks like her grandmother Tippi Hedren, especially the nose.
