May as well! Dakota Johnson admitted during a Twitter Q&A with Glamour UK that she stole two particular items from the Fifty Shades of Grey set — underwear and a flogger.

“I stole lots of the underwear,” Johnson, who plays submissive Anastasia Steele in the S&M flick and donned HANRO panties, admitted. “They were comfortable.”

Another item she lifted from the film’s raunchy set? “I do have a flogger in my house,” she added. “It's in the garage with dust.”

Johnson, 25, who covers the magazine’s March 2015 issue with her costar Jamie Dornan and admitted she still doesn’t want her family — including her famous parents Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson — to see the film, which debuted at the box office over Valentine’s Day weekend with a grand global total of $248.7 million.

"I don't want my family to see it, because it's inappropriate,” she said, understandably. “Or my brother's friends that I grew up with. Also there's part of me that's like, I don't want anyone to see this movie — just kidding."

And while Dornan visited a sex dungeon to prepare for his role of Christian Grey, Johnson revealed she didn’t do much research. “I didn't get to go to the sex dungeon,” she told the mag. "I wanted to keep myself a little bit distanced from it at first because I wanted Ana's reaction to certain things to be honest and real."

During those not-so-comfortable scenes, Johnson was also thankful for her costar, who she says was super protective.

"Jamie would be the first one to throw a blanket over me,” she said of when she’d be tied to a bed, naked after they’d yell cut. “And he did a lot of studying, just to make sure that I was as safe as possible. But there were some painful moments,” she added.
