With Fifty Shades Freed set to hit US theaters on February 9, 2018, the stars of the film have been discussing their experiences on set. This included leading lady Dakota Johnson, who sat down with Entertainment Tonight for an exclusive interview.

The actress portrays Anastasia Steele, and in her interview, she gave fans an in-depth look at the role.

In the video below, Dakota opens up about filming the infamously steamy sex scenes across the three films. She also reveals how taxing they were, and how both she and co-star Jamie Dornan prepared for them.

According to the actress, it took some “serious psychological preparation” on her part. “I really had to get ready for it each time and know exactly what we were going to do,” Dakota told ET.

“Over the course of the three films, it never got easier. It wasn’t like, ‘Oh, this old thing,’ you know?”

She also said that while more of her body may have been shown than was the case for Jamie, he was the one “doing all the push-ups” before the scenes. But she also said that working with the actor made things easier.

“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.”
