Dakota Johnson, who made her name with her breakthrough role in Fifty Shades of Grey series, called it "psychotic" in an interview with Vanity Fair.

Johnson starred opposite Jamie Dornan in Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, and Fifty Shades Freed, but apparently she "signed up to do a very different version of the film" and that the filming process was "psychotic" but that she doesn’t regret it.

The actress talked about the turmoil on set throughout the filming process.

The Fifty Shades star, went on little far that how different her experience of filming the second movie was since James Foley was brought on to direct.

Taylor-Johnson had brought a woman's touch to the director's chair while Johnson said Foley had a "different energy". 

Johnson went on to clear the air saying that she and Jamie Dornan were "treated very well" and the movie was "great for our careers".

As far as the other projects go, Johnson has a lot in the works. The first film she produced, Cha Cha Real Smooth, premiered at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival and then on Apple TV on June 14.

The last upcoming project that Johnson has scheduled for release in 2022 is Persuasion, a Netflix film based on the Jane Austen novel.
