Dakota Johnson Chops Her Hair, Debuts Lob!

16 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Wonder what Christian Grey thinks of this look?  Dakota Johnson stepped out on Wednesday and something was very different about the star -- her hair! The 25-year-old was spotted leaving an NYC salon with a noticeably shorter new do'.   The "Fifty Shades of Grey" star sported a choppy lob that just barely grazed her shoulders. The cropped hairstyle still featured her Anastasia Steele bangs and even a hint of texture.   Inspired by the chic new hairstyle, Dakota kept the rest of her look equally as cool with a pair of Sunday Somewhere's Ned sunglasses and a crisp grey houndstooth coat.   Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson's daughter just recently debuted a hair change last month when she attended the Chanel Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art Collection. The naturally blonde star darkened up her locks to a rich chocolate hue.  The actress isn't the first Hollywood starlet to take the trendy lob hairstyle for a test drive. »

Dakota Johnson Cut Her Hair Into a Lob, Somewhere Christian Grey Weeps: See Her New Style!

16 April 2015 3:04 AM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

Christian Grey's about to change his preference to short-haired brunettes! Dakota Johnson had one very important mission on Wednesday, April 15: to get her long brunette tresses cut into a short lob hairstyle. Snapped leaving an NYC salon, the Fifty Shades of Grey actress, 25, unveiled the new 'do, which just brushes her shoulders. Johnson did, however, hold onto her Anastasia Steele-brunette hue (she's a natural blonde) and her fringed bangs. Working the streets like a true New Yorker, Johnson, whose parents are Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, modeled [...] »

Goodbye Red Room Braid! Dakota Johnson Chops Her Locks Into a Bob—See the Pic!

15 April 2015 2:22 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

But what would Christian Grey say?! Dakota Johnson stepped out in New York City on April 15 with a chic, newly lobbed 'do and, we have to say, the bob length cut definitely fits the 50 Shades of Grey star. We're sure she'll grow out her 'do in time for filming the second installation of the steamy series, should she and Jamie Dornan return to the franchise (really, we can't imagine otherwise). Dakota wowed us during awards season with her sleek premiere picks and red carpet gowns, and her street style is growing us too: The actress debuted her chop while wearing another one of her minimalist-cool looks (this time a structured gray coat, black skinnies and burgundy brogues with a pair of round »

14 April 2015 2:08 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

To go bare leg or slap on a pair of tights — that is the question!   While there is no flat-out cutoff point on when to put away the hosiery after the arrival of spring, this week, celebs including Scarlett Johansson, Dakota Johnson, and Pippa Middleton made a strong case for keeping nylons in rotation just a little while longer. On Monday, April 13, in L.A., Avengers: Age of Ultron actress and new mom Johansson, 30, looked sophisticated in her sheer tights, paired with a black and [...] »

Scott Eastwood explains why he passed on Fifty Shades of Grey

11 April 2015 7:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Scott Eastwood has revealed why he passed on the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey.

Eastwood was reportedly considered for the role of Christian Grey after Charlie Hunnam exited the project, but he didn't audition because Universal Pictures wouldn't let him see the script first, reports Variety.

"They wanted me to sign a deal before I went in and even tested for it, which to me is backwards," Eastwood explained.

"I thought it could make a good movie. The problem is, if you don't have a script, you don't know what movie they are going to make."

The Christian Grey role eventually went to Jamie Dornan, who acted opposite Dakota Johnson in the recently released movie.

Fifty Shades of Grey went on to debut in the number one spot at the Us box office back in February, but Will Smith's heist film Focus ended the movie's two-week run at the top. »

This Is How Dakota Johnson Runs Errands, and We're Impressed

10 April 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Dakota Johnson stepped out into the streets of NYC on Thursday, but she may as well have been on a runway. The Fifty Shades of Grey actress, who has stunned us on the red carpet plenty of times before, looked positively glamorous on two separate run-of-the-mill outings. When she walked her dog, she wore an expertly tucked sweater and a leopard coat, and she changed into a fur-lined black leather jacket and leather shoes for a coffee run. All we're saying is, we want to know how she stays so flawless. Keep reading to see more pictures of her effortless fierceness. »

'Need for Speed 2' Moves Forward as Chinese Co-Production

8 April 2015 10:52 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Need for Speed didn't exactly set the box office on fire last year, taking in just $43.5 million domestically. But if three Chinese studios have their way, they will start production on a sequel later this year. Video game publisher Electronic Arts is teaming with Chinese companies China Movie Channel Program Center, Jiaflix Enterprises and 1905 Pictures, the same three companies that co-produced Transformers: Age of Extinction with Paramount, to make Need for Speed 2. The follow-up will be shot in China and feature the nation's actors taking on "significant roles," according to Variety, although the sequel doesn't have a writer or director locked in yet.

While Need for Speed underperformed domestically, it still pulled in $159.7 internationally, $65 million of which came from China alone. Overall, Need for Speed took in $203.7 million worldwide from a $66 million production budget. Here's what China Movie Channel Chairman Yin Cao had to say about the sequel in a statement. »

The Half-Naked Model in the Fur Coat on Mad Men's Season Premiere Was Andie MacDowell's Daughter Rainey Qualley

7 April 2015 6:44 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Dakota Johnson does not have the hot Hollywood daughter department all to herself. It turns out that the nubile ingenue whom Jon Hamm's Don Draper was undressing with his eyes on the season premiere of Mad Men Sunday was none other than Andie MacDowell's eldest daughter, Rainey Qualley. Not that there was a big secret surrounding her casting, but this is easily the model, actress and aspiring country singer's most high-profile role to date! In the intentionally misleading opening sequence, Draper is giving Qualley's character, Cindy, quite the lascivious look. "I've never worn mink before," she says, the first words of the second half of Mad Men's »

Jamie Dornan Soaks Up His Downtime With His Wife

1 April 2015 10:53 AM, PDT | | See recent Popsugar news »

Jamie Dornan and Amelia Warner stepped out on the streets of London on Wednesday, and all we could focus on was how glorious Jamie's scruff looked. Somehow, he was hotter than when we saw him getting ready to play golf a few weeks ago. It's nice to see Jamie squeezing in a little relaxation between Fifty Shades of Grey films, especially since the franchise has faced quite a bit of drama in recent weeks. In addition to the fact that Sam Taylor-Johnson announced her departure from the films, Jamie has had to field rumors about his own departure, his chemistry with costar Dakota Johnson, and his wife's discomfort with his participation in the films.
