Fifty Shades of Grey hasn't even wrapped filming yet and already its star, Dakota Johnson, is landing on the cover of magazines. The actress opened up about the film and her personal life in the March issue of Elle magazine, which hits newsstands on Feb. 18. When asked about the graphic sex scenes she would have to do with her costar, Jamie Dornan, Dakota said, "I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame." She added: "Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down."

Dakota also opened up about her life growing up in the spotlight as the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. She said: "I think people, especially the press, like to pick on children of famous people, and I think that's f*cking awful. Things get made up. It's so, so sad. And there's absolutely nothing you can do about it as a 16-year-old. You're like . . . why? What did I do?"
