In the build up to the highly anticipated film adaptation of "Fifty Shades of Grey," actress Dakota Johnson revealed her "secret" behind acting in the steamy sex scenes.

Johnson opened up to Elle magazine in a recent interview about her character Anastasia Steele, who falls for Christian Grey, a kinky billionaire played by Jamie Dornan.

"I don't have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame," the 24-year-old star told Elle.

She went on to share her thoughts about the erotic best-selling novel written E.L. James.

"Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes. I think there's a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down," she said.

Johnson, who happens to be the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, also posed for a sultry cover shoot for the March issue of Elle magazine, wearing a playful spring dress, thigh-highs and red pumps.

"At Elle, we love to feature women who are taking risks and putting themselves out there," said Robbie Myers, the magazine's Editor-in-Chief, according to E! News. "Dakota was really open and candid in her interview and has a great mix of confidence, humility and humor."

The issue hits national newsstands on Feb.18.

According to Michael De Luca, the film's producer, the movie will capture the "intense and erotic love story" between the couple.

"We're going to give them what they expect, which is an intense and erotic love story," said De Luca last week at the PGA Producers' Breakfast in Park City, Utah, according to Deadline.

However, De Luca did note that there will be some restrictions in the film. "Obviously the film can't be as explicit as the book. A picture is worth a 1000 words. So to be erotic onscreen means I think an image is going to have way more power than reading the words on a page," he said.

"We're very conscious of not making anything gratuitous or exploitive while being faithful to the stories of the book and to the fans of the book," said the producer at the Sundance Film Festival.
