AceShowbiz - Dakota Johnson got candid about her experience filming "The Lost Daughter". In a new interview, the actress found it "difficult" to film almost-nude scenes for the psychological drama film written and directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal.
In an interview for W Magazine's 2022 Best Performances Portfolio, the actress portraying Nina in "The Lost Daughter" said, "It is difficult. Some days, I don't want to take off my clothes on set." She further told the publication, "Just because I look a certain way doesn't mean I don't have feelings."
"And my character, Nina, is almost bored by her appearance," Dakota explained. The "Fifty Shades of Grey" star continued, "She has reached a point in her life where her hotness doesn't match who she is anymore."
Elsewhere during the conversation, Dakota discussed filming "The Lost Daughter" in Greece amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. "We did hard-core quarantine," she shared. "But we were in Greece, which was not hard-core at all."
"Everyone in the film was in a bubble, on an island, and luckily, we all loved each other," Dakota recalled. The "21 Jump Street" actress added, "We had all sorts of parties. Dance parties, hide-and-go-seek parties, lots of games."
Dakota appeared naked in many of the "Fifty Shades of Grey" trilogy's racy sex scenes with Jamie Dornan. In 2017, she said that she refused to use a body double for her nude scenes. "No, because it would have felt like a cop-out if I did," she reasoned.
"If I was going to do this job, I was going to do it 100 percent and give it everything. I wanted to be true and honest to the role, and the character," Dakota continued explaining. She went on to point out that she doesn't "have a problem with nudity," adding that she thinks "it is beautiful and so [she] was OK with that."
At the time, Dakota also added that her parents initially "discouraged" her from pursuing acting when she was younger. "See how well that turned out?" she quipped. She then said, "But I understood. They wanted me to have as much of a childhood as I could."
