Dakota Johnson almost doesn’t look like herself on the February issue of Vogue magazine with her blunt hair and side-swept bangs. But she does look gorgeous!
The 50 Shades Darker actress may not be quite her usual spread in the editorial either, but her personality and charm shine through beautifully in an accompanying video where she goofs around and does a pretty decent impression of Miranda Kerr, of all people.
Dakota also addresses two persistent rumors — 1) that she hates 50 Shades Of Grey, and 2) that she and Jamie Dornan hate each other or are having an affair.
However, according to the 27-year-old, she’s very proud of having done the BDSM flick. She said:
“I’m truly proud of it. It’s a cool story, and I think it’s different, and different is what I’m about.”
As for those Dornan rumors, she cheekily suggested:
“We hate each other and we’re having an affair, so everybody’s right. How about that?”
And make sure to read on for some HIGHlights from her interview:
On fame: “No one wants to say that they want to be famous, nobody wants to sound like they like being famous, nobody wants to sound ungrateful, nobody wants to sound like they’re in denial,” she says. “It’s a scary word. What is the literal definition anyway? ‘Fame. From the Latin for rumor. The condition of being recognized.’ The condition! But then I’m like, am I even a famous person? Because I imagine that those are people who other people are constantly staring at, which isn’t me. Who gets photographed every day? Brad and Angelina? But they don’t, because I’m fairly certain that they’ve built underground tunnels everywhere, and that’s how they get around.”
On her childhood: “I was so consistently unmoored and discombobulated. I didn’t have an anchor anywhere. I never learned how to learn the way you’re supposed to as a kid. I thought, Why do I have to go to school on time? What’s the point when you’re living in Budapest for six months while your stepdad films Evita and you go to school in your hotel room? I was a disaster, and I thought for so long that there was something wrong with my brain. Now I realize that it just works in a different way.”
On her sexuality: “I’ve been in a phase of my life where I’m fascinated by young women coming to terms with their sexuality. I guess, by proxy, I have been experiencing that in my own life, and it’s very interesting to me.”
