Dakota Johnson may be the next big thing with her role as Anastasia Steele in February's erotic film, "50 Shades of Grey." However, she feels that she has to brace herself for the fame that could come hand in hand with her role.

In an interview with Vogue, the actress spoke about relishing being unidentified in London, and is starting to see her "dwindling anonymity."

She said, "That's really scary because a very large part of me would be perfectly happy living on a ranch in Colorado and having babies and chickens and horses -- which I will do anyway."

Career-wise, however, it wouldn't have made sense for her to skip on the role, considering that E.L. James's trilogy on bondage and domination has been wildly successful. She also didn't regret taking on the role, telling the magazine, "I wanted to be involved because it's so different, and it's an intense love story."

She also hasn't seen the full movie yet, but with the release of the trailer, she caught a glimpse on how big the film actually is. She said, "It's just the most insane thing to be a part of. I've never experienced anything like this; I don't think anyone has. It's terrifying-and it's exciting."

Her co-star, Jamie Dornan, and her director, Sam Taylor-Johnson were also very taken with her as they showered her with praise. Jamie also had a sit-down with Vogue, and speaking about his on-screen love, he stated, "Dakota is very funny-and humor on a film set goes a long way. But she also had the ability to be a very strong dramatic actress. She'd be telling a joke one minute and breaking your heart on-screen the next.'

Taylor-Johnson shared the same sentiments, saying, "There are tough scenes in this movie, scenes where she had to be naked - and not just in the flesh. But she was utterly fearless and brave."

In a report from Time, Johnson is said to be always on the go for red carpet events until the film hits theaters on Valentine's, but she plans on laying low afterwards. She said, "I do a bit of press for Fifty, and then I'm just going to take the rest of the year off. I want to hang out with my friends. I want to hang out with my family - well, I sometimes want to hang out with my family!"

Not that being Anastasia Steele is without its perks. In the fashion world, doing as many red carpet events as she is doing now means that she can spend more time with her friend, stylist Kate Young, and fashion designer Stella McCartney, who Johnson said is "very special" to her.

Are you ready to watch "50 Shades of Grey" next month?
