Fifty Shades Darker is shaping up to be the least sexy “sexy” movie ever.
The sexy: Hannibal‘s Hugh Dancy and Batman‘s Kim Basinger (she’ll always be Batman‘s Kim Basinger to me) have joined the cast as a psychiatrist and one-time dominatrix, respectively. The not-so-sexy: It’s a sequel to a movie that caused a “drunk” woman to “[vomit] copiously” during a screening. The somewhere in-between: Dakota Johnson telling Chrissie Hynde, as in the Pretenders’ cooler-person-than-you Chrissie Hynde, that she’s having so much on-screen, simulated sex that she, like Rivers Cuomo, is tired of it.
Johnson told Hynde that filming Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed back-to-back is “not comfortable” and “pretty tedious.” The “Back on the Chain Gang” singer responded, “I had to kiss someone for a video once, and I was totally freaked for days, weeks — it was like getting a shot. He was a good-looking guy, too. Gary Stretch, the prize fighter. He’s an actor in Hollywood now, but it didn’t matter, you know? It was excruciating.” Johnson agreed.
Well, we’re not having actual sex. But I’ve been simulating sex for seven hours straight right now, and I’m over it. (Via)
