Dakota Johnson reveals she was very sure and adamant about acting in Fifty Shades of Grey. The actress of the 'Fifty Shades' trilogy has opened up how sceptical her parents were when she initially took over the leading role in the movie. However, she didn't gave them a chance to stop her and jumped up at the golden opportunity.

As reported by MSN entertainment, Dakota Johnson revealed how her role in the trilogy has changed her basic beliefs about women. She said: "When I was growing up I was taught that women are beautiful. We should be comfortable with our body and there's nothing wrong with it. That came from my mother but I think I am equally as sensitive as I am tough. I just feel things more than the average human maybe. And when it comes to taking on this role, they didn't have a choice".

"I think they would like to be able to see the movies that have put me in this place in my life, but because it's pretty inappropriate, they haven't seen them ... They don't judge me on what projects I decide to do. They judge me on what kind of human I am to other humans," she added.

Talking about her role and the recent plots that has been changing her movie character, the actress said that Anastasia is realising her "arc as a woman and also her sexual journey". Quite unexpectedly, Dakota also talked about her relationship with Jamie Dornan saying: "We spent six months shooting the two movies and we became so close. I think that is quite a lucky thing to have happen, especially in this situation because we are so intimate. Even the scenes that are not sexually explicit, they are emotionally intimate so the fact that we get along and can hang out outside of work and do stuff on the weekends, it's a lot nicer than it could have been."
