First, it was Jamie Dornan; now it seems like "fifty shades" leading actress, Dakota Johnson, is also considering dropping out from the project. According to reports, the 27-year old actress is contemplating on vacating the role of Anastasia Steele for another actress because of the heavy sex scenes in the upcoming movie installment.

This is not the first time that speculations about actor replacements have been linked to the movie adaptation of E.L. James' book series. The possible reshuffling of actors has posed quite a concern for diehard fans of the movie franchise, specifically because it would be quite a bit awkward to see a different actor or actress portray the role of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele respectively.

However, it has been clarified that Dakota Johnson is talking about the possible fourth movie installment fresh from E.L. James' newest novel, "Grey: Fifty Shades Of Grey As Told By Christian." This is said to be written from the male protagonist's point of view and is expected to be filled once more with intense and steamy love scenes. That said, fans of the movie franchise can have a peace of mind that the "How To Be Single" actress will still be reprising her role as Anastasia Steele in "Fifty Shades Of Freed."

Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson's relationship

Being an actor or actress may seem to be all glitz and glamor, but when sensitive scenes require intimate physical contact with a stranger or a colleague, the awkwardness is expected to seep into the scene.

Take for example the case of Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson. They are required to play the role of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele and act out those steamy scenes from the "Fifty Shades" novel.

The fact that Jamie Dornan is a married man only makes things between him and the "Black Mass" actress more awkward. However, they have been working professionally with each other since day one, and their chemistry on-screen is off the charts.

This has led to a lot of speculations and rumors that they are having an affair with the 35-year old actor's wife reportedly requesting him to drop the role.

According to sources close to the on-screen couple, their relationship is purely professional, and Dakota Johnson gives "The Fall" actor a lot of space at times when they are not filming on set. Further, the "Anthropoid" actor is reportedly far from the "A Bigger Splash" actress' ideal man in real life, so Amelia Warner has nothing to worry about.
