Taking a break from the Red Room! Costars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan toned it down at the world premiere of their highly anticipated S&M flick Fifty Shades of Grey. Dressed classically — yet still sexy — in all black, the two actors looked dapper posing together on the red carpet at the 65th Berlinale International Film Festival at Zoo Palast on Wednesday, Feb. 11, in Berlin, Germany.
One day after appearing on the Tonight Show, Johnson, who plays innocent-yet-seduced Anastasia Steele, opted for a long-sleeved black Dior gown and a bold red lip. Melanie Griffith’s daughter, 25, kept her accessories to the minimum and bared only her decolletage. The tame look is a dramatic difference to her dazzling strapless Chanel gown at the Golden Globes last month.
Mr. Grey, er, Dornan, looked handsome in a sleek black suit with a dark navy bow tie and pocket square.
Although the costars had to reshoot scenes because of an apparent lack of chemistry prior to the flick’s release, Dornan gushed about working with Johnson during a recent interview with Vogue.
“Dakota is very funny — and humor on a film set goes a long way,” says Dornan, who gets more than up-close-and-personal with the star in the film. “But she also had the ability to be a very strong dramatic actress. She’d be telling a joke one minute and breaking your heart on-screen the next — so she was perfect.”
