Dakota Johnson has told Glamour that it was stressful to film the sex scenes in Fifty Shades of Grey.

The actress and her co-star Jamie Dornan appear on all 12 global covers of the magazine as well as Vanity Fair Italy, and gave a joint interview about the project.

"There were times when Dakota was not wearing much, and I had to do stuff to her that I'd never choose to do to a woman," Dornan said of shooting the scenes.

Johnson said: "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."

Dornan said: "I felt very protective and aware that it probably wasn't easy for her to be put in those situations."
