Dakota Johnson's 'Fifty Shades Freed' Wardrobe Secret Sounds Painful

Ouch? Fifty Shades Freed star Dakota Johnson wore a sticky strapless thong during sex scenes. The actress’ wardrobe secret comes after her costar Jamie Dornan shared that he wore a “little pouch” during their steamy scenes. 

"It's super not glamorous — it's really unsexy," Dakota told MarieClaire.com. "It's not glue, but it's sticky. They're, like, basically if it were a nipple pastie, but underwear. But it's only sticky at the top, it's not sticky the whole way."

Dakota’s sticky thong though would sometimes fall off, resulting in it having to be superglued 😬

"It would also come off because the adhesive would wear out, so then they would superglue it to my body so that it wouldn't fall off. And I would wear two of them," she added. "It's not painful, I mean, it's barely anything. But I guess you have some sense of being covered. It's f--king bizarre."

To ease the awkwardness, Dakota added that sometimes, yes, alcohol was needed. 


"Most of [our preparation] is just really figuring out exactly how were are going to accomplish the scene beforehand — so that there's not a lot of waiting around while we're both vulnerable," Johnson added to MarieClaire.com. "But, if something is very, very difficult, it's sometimes necessary to have a shot of something strong beforehand."

For the record, she added that filming never got any less awk. 

"No, it's never easy," she concluded. "It's not casual and it's not fun. It never got easy."

Fifty Shades Freed is out in theaters now.
