Sam Taylor-Johnson Talks 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Sex Scenes

Sam Taylor-Johnson is soakin’ wet in a pool for a feature in the latest issue of Porter, which features Natalia Vodianova on the cover!

Here’s what the 47-year-old Fifty Shades of Grey director had to share:

On beating Angelina Jolie to direct Fifty Shades of Grey and their friendship: “I got an email out of the blue from her saying good luck on your journey. I thought that was incredibly sweet of her.”

On managing the sex scenes in the film: “Jamie [Dornan] had an on-set dominant to show him how it all worked and I had a female dominatrix who helped enhance my understanding.’

On being married to Aaron Taylor-Johnson and what he’s like as a father: “He’s a backyard dad. That’s someone who wants to play with the kids in the backyard, cook dinner. He didn’t want us to have a nanny. He’s the sort of person who puts family above everything. I’m very blessed with the perfect husband. I can’t drag him to a party. The worst thing I can say to him, ‘We’re going to a party tonight.’ He’s more grown-up that I am.”

    Just a question for JJ editor’s and writers. Why is it necessary to always include the age of these people? What does it profit the story? What’s the purpose? It’s always the women btw and just every once in a blue moon a dude. What’s up with that?

    I’m sorry, am I reading this correctly ??? Angelina Jolie was in the running to direct 50 Shades of Grey. WTF?? I find that so incredibly odd on, well, 50 levels.

  • Penny Dreadful

    I find it really, really hard to believe AJ was in the running to direct this garbage. I don’t believe it, but it certainly seems like a very bold lie if it isn’t true.

    Angelina Jolie Will Not Direct ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’
    Universal Pictures president Adam Fogelman says there is no merit to the rumor, but he hopes the film is ready for next summer.

    “There were rumors circulating that Angelina Jolie, director of the acclaimed drama In the Land of Blood and Honey, was being considered to direct, which was shut down by the Universal executive.

    “No. We’re involved in a different project [the World War II drama Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption] with her. But we have had really, really interesting, great conversations with talented, serious filmmakers.”

    “I wonder why Sam Taylor Johnson said that??? Is it for publicity?”

  • Violet

    Not sure about the pose

  • Violet

    Nope, Angelina confirmed as much in an interview last year. They are pulling out all the desperate stops to push this movie.
