Personal Quote:

[on filming BDSM sex scenes] It's stressful enough to be tied to a bed naked in a scene. But then they call 'cut' and you're still tied to the bed, naked. See more »

Trivia:

Prior to landing the role of Anastasia Steele, Johnson's most recognized roles included being Sean Parker's one night stand in The Social Network (2010), a high school student in 21 Jump Street (2012), and a neurotic ex-girlfriend in The Five-Year Engagement (2012). All three roles are considered by many to be scene stealing, but they totaled less screen time than the average music video. See more »
