Dakota Johnson is opening up about preparing for her intimate scenes with co-star Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades Freed.

“[I did] serious psychological preparation,” Dakota told ET. “I mean, there is a lot more of my body that’s shown than Jamie‘s actually…[but] weirdly he’s the one doing all the push-ups.”

Dakota added that the sex scenes are “not something that’s easy to do.”

“I really had to get ready for it each time and know exactly what we were going to do and how we were going to accomplish shooting the scenes, the more intimate ones. Over the course of the three films, it never got easier. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, this old thing,’ you know?” Dakota continued.

Dakota and Jamie luckily have a great relationship. “Luckily, Jamie and I were so comfortable with each other and it felt safe and protected, but it’s still an environment that’s scary,” Dakota added.

She also added, “I know what I signed up for. It’s not like they are forcing me to take off my clothes. I choose to do these jobs.”
