'Fifty Shades of Grey' Director Sam Taylor-Johnson Will Not Watch the Sequels

It’s no secret that Sam Taylor-Johnson did not get along with author/producer E.L. James on the set of the movie Fifty Shades of Grey.

Sam, who became the female director with the biggest opening weekend at the time when the movie was released, clashed with Erika about their visions for the film and the director did not return for the sequels.

Now, Sam says she has “no interest” in watching the sequels, starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.

“I have literally zero interest,” she told Sunday Times Magazine in a new interview. “I can never say I regret it because that would just finish me off – would I go through it again? I’d be mad.”

“I like everyone and I get really confused when they don’t like me – I don’t understand when I can’t navigate a person… when there’s no synergy,” she added about her on-set relationship with James.

James Foley took the helm of Fifty Shades of Darker and the franchise’s third film, Fifty Shades Freed.

Jamie Dornan Explains Why He Put on Muscle for 'Darker'

Jamie Dornan‘s body looks absolutely ripped for his role as Christian Grey in the movie Fifty Shades Darker and he’s opening up about why he packed on more muscle than he did for the first film.

“[Director James Foley] talked to me a lot about making him more of physical threat and toughening him up a bit and he had me going to the gym a lot more than the first one,” the 35-year-old actor said in a clip released by TooFab.

“I’m substantially heavier than I was in the first one,” Jamie added. “But it made sense to me that this was someone who got in a lot of fights as a kid, went through awful stuff when he was a child and I think he wanted that to come across on screen more than it would have in the first one.”

You can see Jamie stripping down in the film, which is currently available on Digital HD and will be on Blu-ray and DVD on May 9.
