She played one of the sexiest roles of the year, but it seems Dakota Johnson just can’t catch a break when it comes to dates…

The 25-year-old actress and star of Fifty Shades Of Grey, chatted to Ellen Degeneres about how her role in the film works against her in the dating world.

Although no one in her very famous family – her dad, Don Johnson, and mum Melanie Griffith – saw the film, everyone else has, and she has had a few awkward encounters.

“Well, sometimes, people just say things that are a little bit awkward for me,” the star admitted.

“Like, I was in a cab recently, and the driver was like, ‘My wife and I, we saw your film. We really liked it.’ And he goes, ‘…I thought there could be more sex.'”

@DakotaJohnson is getting ready to shoot more 50 Shades of Grey. I taught her everything she knows.

Dakota told Ellen that she is indeed still single, when Ellen asked: “Are people more attracted to you or do you think people are scared of you?”

“I mean, if those are the two options, I guess they’re scared of me,” Johnson laughs.

“They either love me or they’re running for the hills…Mostly running for the hills.”

And with two more movies in the trilogy to film, we can’t expect for that to change anytime soon…

Filming is expected to start “sometime in the new year” according to Dakota.
