Someone was bound to get hurt during the filming of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” right? Well, no surprise, it was Dakota Johnson, who portrays human sex toy Anastasia Steele.
“There were some painful moments. I got whiplash once from him throwing me on the bed; so (freaking) painful,” Johnson reveals in a new joint interview with co-star Jamie Dornan in Glamour magazine.
For Dornan’s part, being Christian Grey on film – the movie comes out on Feb. 13 – “was a massive challenge,” he says.
“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.

“I’ve always had a deep respect for women. I have two sisters. My father spent his career as an obstetrician-gynecologist caring for women… But you have to find something likable in every character you play. I like how driven Christian is. (Still), I don’t think I would like him if he was a real dude and we met.”
Johnson reveals that her co-star, who is married to British actress/singer Amelia Warner, was a true gentleman on set.
“It’s stressful enough to be tied to a bed naked in a scene,” she tells Glamour. “But then they call cut, and you’re still tied to the bed, naked. Jamie would be the first one to throw a blanket over me.”
