With the Fifty Shades of Grey movie coming out in about a week (here in New Zealand anyway) there's a lot of buzz about the franchise on social media. Recently, an article about the disastrous press tour turned up on my Facebook feed.
Did you know that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson hate each other? And did you know that they both hated doing Fifty Shades of Grey? As research for his role, Jamie went to a sex dungeon. He was quoted saying that afterwards, when he got home, he had a looooooong shower before touching his wife and son. Also, he abhorred doing risqué sexual acts on a blindfolded woman. Dakota hated being blindfolded while he did them to her. So seeing as how the actors hated doing the movie, I don't think it will be a very good movie.
But anyway, this is a literature website, so today I want to talk about the books.
I kid you not, that is an actual line from the book. There are so many bad ones in the book, it's a wonder it got published. I'm starting to think that the person who chose to publish it doesn't know what good writing is.
