Ahead, find everything we know so far about Madame Web.

Seven years after the first Fifty Shades of Grey movie came out, Dakota Johnson is speaking out about what her experience filming the franchise was really like in the latest issue of Vanity Fair. But first, it’s worth noting that Dakota refers to Fifty Shades as “those big naked movies.” And to that I say, don’t we all?

In the cover story, Dakota says the main reason she took the role of Anastasia Steele is because she is “a sexual person” and wanted to explore the themes that author E. L. James masterfully crafted in the original book series. But none of that really got to happen….

Here are 16 similar dark fantasy shows that we know you'll love.While waiting for the upcoming third season fans of the series have been enjoying the animated origin story, The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf, which focuses on Geralt’s mentor Vesemir and his discovery of where the monsters the Witchers battle come from. The spin-off received praise for its animation, which was executed by Studio Mir, known for The Legend of Korra and The Boondocks series.

“I signed up to do a very different version of the film we ended up making,” Dakota told the magazine. She named the studio, director, and E. L. James (whose real name is Erika) as the reason.

“[Erika] had a lot of creative control, all day, every day, and she just demanded that certain things happen,” explained Dakota. “There were parts of the books that just wouldn’t work in a movie, like the inner monologue, which was at times incredibly cheesy. It wouldn’t work to say out loud. It was always a battle. Always.”

She later continued: “We’d do the takes of the movie that Erika wanted to make, and then we would do the takes of the movie that we wanted to make.”

But even with the challenges, Dakota said she knew from the audition that the movies were going to be significant. “When I auditioned for that movie, I read a monologue from Persona and I was like, ‘Oh, this is going to be really special.’”

Dakota also mentioned that “there were a lot of different disagreements” and the filming process “became something crazy” and “was tricky,” especially after her original costar Charlie Hunnam dropped out due to a scheduling conflict. (He was replaced by Jamie Dornan.) But ultimately, Dakota is “proud of what we made” and has no regrets—for the most part. “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,” she said. “It would’ve been like, ‘Oh, this is psychotic.’ But no, I don’t regret it.”

Overall, though, Dakota says the experience was pretty good, but still…interesting. “Jamie and I were treated really well,” she said. “Erika is a very nice woman, and she was always kind to me and I am grateful she wanted me to be in those movies.…It was great for our careers. So amazing. So lucky. But it was weird. So, so weird.”
