Fifty Shades of Grey Director Had on Set Fights With Author Over Kinky Scenes

Fifty Shades of Grey is a massively sucessful book, so naturally the author EL James would want to be heavily involved in the movie adaptation. And she was.

The 51 year old author (who started writing fan fiction online in 2009) was regularly on set during the shoot and had plenty of input into how the sex scenes in particular were recreated for the film. And this didn't always sit well with the director Sam Taylor-Johnson.

The 47 year old director has admitted there were many creative clashes between her and the writer, especially when it came to elements of the bondage scenes which were being shot. Despite the help of on set dominatrices to give details to stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson, there was still plenty of tensionn on set.

But Taylor-Johnson insists it was all part of the creative forces working to make the film better, and that no one held a grudge: "“We definitely fought, but they were creative fights, and we would resolve them. We would have proper on-set ‘barneys,’ and I’m not confrontational, but it was about finding a way between the two of us, satisfying her vision of what she’d written as well as my need to visualise this person on-screen, but, you know, we got there.”

Fifty Shades of Grey is in cinemas from the 13th of February 2015.
