Someone with no knowledge of actual S&M relationships who writes slash fiction from bad Mormon teen fantasy is a hack? No!

When I auditioned for that movie, I read a monologue from 'Persona' and I was like, 'Oh, this is going to be really special.'"

*cough* Bullshiat *cough*

Everybody knew this was a trashy novel being made into a quick cash grab movie.  There was literally no one connected to this movie who thought they were making high art.

"If I had known at the time that's what it was going to be like, I don't think anyone would've done it," Johnson said. "It would've been like, 'Oh, this is psychotic.' But no, I don't regret it...There are things that I still cannot say because I don't want to hurt anyone's career and I don't want to damage anybody's reputation, but both Jamie [Dornan] and I were treated really well. [James] is a very nice woman, and she was always kind to me and I am grateful she wanted me to be in those movies."

What verbal gymnastics: "If I knew how bad it was going to be I would have never done it, and I'm not even telling you the worst of it because it's so bad it will damage reputations. But I have no regrets!"

Uh huh.

Sorry, Dakota, but if you're so bitter about the movie that you decide to do a tell-all interview, you cannot have it both ways.

'"Christian Grey put his thumb in my mouth. And then the other one. And then two more. "Wider," he said as he put in one more. "I bet you've never had this many thumbs in your mouth." I hadn't.'

You're telling me this lady is a hack?  You just lost all credibility there, Dakota.

Let's not forget 50 shades was originally Twilight fanfic.  I think we all knew then the author was a no-talent ass-clown

In other news, Mormon
Moms are really repressed and really horny.

For, you guessed it, Frank Stallone and a ball gag.

If anyone would like to see a thorough autopsy of 50 Shades and Erica Mitchell's many failings, Dan Olson has you covered.  The "lukewarm defense" is in regards to the director and writer of the first movie, he respects how they somehow managed to turn the horrifically atrocious source material into a movie that was merely bad.
