Most people would avoid the word “boring” when describing anything having to do with Fifty Shades of Grey.
But Dakota Johnson isn’t one of those people.
Along with filming the highly-anticipated flick, the busy brunette is also making her rounds in a bunch of magazines.
After seductively posing on the cover of Elle, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson’s daughter posed for the Vanities opener in Vanity Fair – and admitted something pretty shocking about her character.
“[Anastasia Steele] is kinda boring,” says Dakota, who rocks an adorable gray (one shade only!) strapless dress in the feature.

To be fair, this is before the innocent college student is introduced to S&M by the dreamy and tortured 27-year-old-billionaire, Christian Grey.
“A lot of getting into the character’s head, in Ana’s headspace before she meets Christian, so it’s a lot of reading, which I love,” she continues.
“She’s an English major, so that’s kinda boring.”
To any English majors reading this right now: breathe.
She also revealed filming with Jamie Dornan (Christian) and the rest of the cast and crew has been very positive.
“It’s been a very smooth and fun and creative experience,” the 24-year-old shares. “I think going into something like this, you kind of have fears of what it could be like and none of those fears are happening.
“We all get along really well and the crew’s amazing. We’re just all trying to make this project the best it can be.”

Saturday will mark one year until the flick hits theaters – and fans are eagerly counting down the days.
“I wonder if it will be, like, 40-year-old moms, which I am cool with,” she joked about the fan base.
“I love moms.”
Can’t say we disagree with you there, Dakota!
