During the chat, he talked about attempting to make small talk at industry parties with strangers.

He also opened up about his Fifty Shades experience, and negative reviews compared to massive commercial success.

“I want to try to do as much great work as I can, diverse and interesting work. The thing that I’m probably most famous for is a monsterly successful franchise that was not critically loved. It’s a strange thing going into those films knowing that you’re going to be in a franchise that will probably make so much money and get negatively reviewed, because those books made so much money and were really negatively reviewed,” he said.
