Personal Quote:

[on why she chose to be an actress] I felt so much when I was fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, I felt everything. I didn't understand [myself], I was so happy yet so angry and sad. That was the point when I realized that I needed to tell stories and make characters come alive and I needed to make people cry, and make people angry, and make people happy, and make them laugh.

Trivia:

She did not use a body double for any scenes in Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) except for one BDSM scene. A double was used for a scene involving her character Anastasia being whipped with a belt. Johnson did not want to participate in the scene to avoid personal injury and to avoid her body being marked in any way. See more »
