    The star opened up about her shooting experience of ‘Fifty Shades‘ and called it “psychotic.” She played protagonist Anastasia Steele in the franchise’s three films. They were adapted from EL James’ novels of the same titles.

    Jamie Dornan played the lead role alongside her as Christian Grey, after Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the first film due to scheduling conflicts. According to Johnson, Hunnam’s departure from the franchise was an early turning point that changed the way the films came to life.

    In a new interview with Vanity Fair, the ‘Persuasion‘ star said that author and screenwriter James was “so enraged” by Hunnam leaving that she scrapped the original script. “It just became something crazy. There were a lot of different disagreements,” Johnson explained.

    She continued, “I haven’t been able to talk about this truthfully ever, because you want to promote a movie the right way, and I’m proud of what we made ultimately and everything turns out the way it’s supposed to, but it was tricky.”

    The new Madame Web also gave examples of “battles” that occurred with James, including the inclusion of “incredibly cheesy” lines that Johnson felt wouldn’t work for the film. “She had a lot of creative control, all day, every day, and she just demanded that certain things happen,” the actress said about working with the author on the script.

    Later, when asked if she regretted her involvement with the film, Johnson denied the suggestion, but shared that she wouldn’t have agreed to be in the film if she’d known of the drama to come. “No. I don’t think it’s a matter of regret,” she clarified, before adding, “If I had known at the time that’s what it was going to be like, I don’t think anyone would’ve done it. It would’ve been like, ‘Oh, this is psychotic.’ But no, I don’t regret it.”
