Dakota Johnson & E.L. James: 'Fifty Shades' of Fun in NYC!

Dakota Johnson meets up with “Fifty Shades of Grey” author E.L. James on Sunday afternoon (September 8) in New York City.

The 23-year-old actress, who will be playing the role of Anastasia Steele in the film adaptation of the hit book, also met up with the movie’s producer Dana Brunetti.

“The beautiful, talented, funny as feck, Dakota Johnson. Oh and that bloke @danabrunetti,” E.L. wrote on her Twitter account.

Dakota‘s upcoming co-star Charlie Hunnam spoke out last night about starring with her in the movie, saying that when he got into the room with her, he knew he “definitely wanted to do it, because there was a tangible chemistry between us. It felt kind of exciting and fun and weird and compelling, and so that was it.”

E.L. and Dana flew to New York yesterday. Check out some of their other pictures from their trip below!

    LOL Dana Brunetti and E.L. James are desperate now flying all the way to NYC to get a photo op with their disaster cast of Anastasia. Damage control much? this is the worst cast in the history of casting. Dakota cannot act. If anyone saw Social Network, she played the girl who slept with Timberlake and Ben and Kate the girl has horrible timing. She needs to study acting some more. This movie is a disaster. Stick with the books folks because that’s the only thing worth your time.

    This movie will bomb. The book is nothing to write home about and then trying to create a decent script out of that mess will be difficult to say the least. Probably will be extremely low budget hence the casting choices.

    Sorry but the book was really boring, only read about 4-5 pages of it and then took it to the book exchange (on vacation at the time).

    Well, most of the better actresses won’t touch the material so Dakota is in. She is a capable enough talent and the role isn’t exactly Oscar bait.

    Why are all the writers of this genre middle aged ugly fat women?

    BEMUSED Says:

    the bitterness seems to have gone from the comments, resigned disappointment and humour seem to abound. I found the ones I read amusing. Can’t comment on accuracy, haven’t read the book, don’t intend to. Seems it’s designed for late middle age women with either no partner or a loveless marriage. Anyone else need not apply.

    I get the impression that E.L. James mistakenly thinks she’s the new Shakespeare.

    The guy in the picture with her and E.L. s a hottie.

    @55vineyard: You got to read all of them to get the concept of the story not just 4 to 5 pages. Book three fills in the blanks. Before you comment read all of them

    Also the movie will bomb. I haven’t read the script but neither persons would be the best characters to play Grey and Steele, but as I said before, it is EL James books and she picks who she think will be the best actor/actress, it is her fantasy not anyone else.Our picks does not count.
    I probably won’t see the movie because I cannot afford the tickets.

    Lady, wo hast Du gelebt die letzten Monaten??? Auf dem Mond?? Wenn Du mal in der Zeit einen Buchladen von innen gesehen hast, dann stehen die drei Bänder noch immer bei den Bestseller!!! Shades of Grey (eine Trilogy, hast Du sicher auch nicht mit bekommen…) waren und sind die Bücher die in aller Munde waren und sind! Mehr als 70 Millionen mal verkauft!! Das erste Buch ist das jemals schnellste verkaufte Taschenbuch. Noch bevor Harry Potter Taschenbücher!!! Also das ist alles andere als Billig! Mit dieser Rolle als Ana wird diese Schauspielerin, von 0 auf 100 bekannt und sofort wird sie zu den begehrtesten Schauspielern der Hollywood Elite gehören! BILLIG ist anders! Wir leben im 2013, da spricht man offen über die Sexualität und die verschiedenen Vorlieben! Das Problem bist Du, verklemmt und Prüde wie im 18. Jahrhundert! … Heute dürfen wir Frauen, auch über unsere Sexualität reden und Sie ausleben! Zum Glück!!!

    Nothing remotely hot about the producer guy. He is so rude and arrogant, completely unprofessional. Too bad E L James seems to have crawled up his butt and taken on his attitude.
