Fifty Shades of Grey Starts Filming

Everyone and their mother – perhaps most upsettingly, especially the mothers – has been anticipating the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey. Well, anticipate no longer, for it is at least partially a reality.

Producer Dana Brunetti Tweeted a picture of a film slate from the set Sunday with the caption, "Here we go." Sadly, the slate was notably devoid of leather, lace, or a ball-gag, but did feature the E L James series's tasteful feather motif.

It shouldn't come as news to anyone that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are playing the film's leads, though it may surprise you to learn that Melanie Griffith is "thrilled" about her daughter playing an ingénue being slowly drawn into the world of S&M.

Dakota Johnson was reading at a table in Hollywood this week – but she wasn't doing a table read with rumored new Fifty Shades of Grey costar Jamie Dornan.

Nope, the actress seemed worry-free while reading the menu at Brick + Mortar in Santa Monica, Calif., on Thursday. Johnson, who arrived with a blond gal pal and grabbed a seat on the patio, was dressed down in a striped black-and-white T-shirt, had her hair casually clipped up in a messy bun and "didn't have a stitch of makeup on," according to an onlooker.
