Here's your first look at Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele for the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Entertainment Weekly has released the first shots of the two actors in character on the cover, showing Jamie with that copper hair, holding a gray tie, and looking every inch the smoldering Mr. Grey. Dakota looks perfectly in character as well, with short brown hair, blunt bangs, and an innocent look. There are a couple of other provocative shots of the actors from the shoot as well.
In an accompanying interview with the magazine, Jamie opens up about the first time that he learned that he would replace Charlie Hunnam as Christian in the film: "I was sort of pretending I wasn't waiting, but the phone was in my hand halfway to my ear," the actor said, saying he got the call at 1:30 a.m. while he was watching reruns of Storage Wars on TV. Jamie also went on to say that he is "a fairly liberal guy" so he wasn't shocked by the sex scenes in the erotic novel. Meanwhile, Dakota reveals that she "wants to look good naked" and has been working out in anticipation of her upcoming nude scenes.
It's already an emotional roller coaster of a day for Fifty Shades of Grey fans, as we also found out the film's release date has been pushed back to Feb. 13, 2015. To ease the pain, check out a couple more pictures of Jamie and Dakota in character after the jump.
