As Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, they bring the erotica of the novel to the big screen.
Let’s learn more about the couple who were bonded during the making of the film, literally and figuratively.
1. They’re Both Taken
Dornan has a wife, singer-songwriter and actress Amelia Warner. They married in April of 2013 and welcomed their first child in December of that same year. In the past, Dornan was linked to Keira Knightley, who he dated for
Johnson dates Jordan Masterson, known for his role in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. He is the younger half-brother of actors Danny and Christopher Masterson.
Perez Hilton revealed that a source said that Masterson did not like the fact that his girlfriend was getting sexual attention.

Since their bodies are exposed for a lot of the sex scenes, the pair made sure to get into peak physical condition.
I combat the winter blow-out by skiing as often as possible. I work really hard at it – the beauty of it is that you feel like you’ve earned your pint at the end of the day! Like rugby, too, I feel I deserve to reward my exertions.
Johnson enjoyed her workouts, and was even photographed leaving the gym with Masterson.
Obviously, I want to look good naked. I totally understand now why people exercise, because it kind of f—ing feels awesome.
3. They’re Models

Dornan is a former underwear model, a distinction that follows him everywhere.
In an interview with the Guardian, he said:
I think I’ve done two shoots in my underwear ever. They both happened to be for Calvin Klein. But that tag – underwear model – I just can’t get rid of it. And it’s such a bizarre, specific thing – underwear. It’s like I never modeled clothes.

Johnson is the daughter of Melanie and Don Johnson.
When her famous dad was interviewed about his daughter taking on such a role, Don told the Huffington Post:
I can tell you this: Dakota is a gifted, gifted actress. And this will be a blip in a long line of parts where she kills it. She is the authentic article and I am exceedingly proud of her.

It’s hot. I think we are a little more than halfway through but it’s going really good. I’m excited! The chemistry is there, they genuinely like each other. They’re enjoying the story, the story is so powerful.
