Dakota Johnson says the rough sex scenes in "Fifty Shades Freed” were researched to “honor the BDSM community.”
The actress said one of the most difficult "Freed" scenes to shoot was when her character's legs and arms were handcuffed to a gate while blindfolded.
Johnson said, “I didn't realize that no matter how prepared or rehearsed I was, when your senses are taken away like that, you can't control the way your nervous system will react. So it was really tricky to navigate that scene. It was kind of difficult."
She added, “But, if something is very, very difficult, it's sometimes necessary to have a shot of something strong beforehand.”
