Dakota Johnson is now trying to promote "Black Mass" with Johnny Depp, but while on the media circuit, she's fielding questions about the "Fifty Shades of Grey" series. The second movie, "Fifty Shades Darker" -- with a script by author E.L. James's husband Niall Leonard -- is scheduled for release February 10, 2017. The third movie, "Fifty Shades Freed," is scheduled for February 9, 2018.

Dakota was just on "Ellen," and it was clear Ellen DeGeneres really just wanted to focus the conversation on "Fifty Shades." She asked if Dakota was in a relationship (she's not, she's single) and Dakota said guys might be "scared" of her after playing Anastasia Steele. But some guys are so not scared that share a little TMI. As Dakota told Ellen:

Well, sometimes, people just say things that are a little bit awkward for me. Like, I was in a cab recently, and the driver was like, 'You know, my wife and I, we saw your film.... We really liked it.' I was like 'Thank you very much.' He was like, 'I thought there could be more sex.'"

She said she wanted to roll out of the car while it was driving.

In terms of the second movie, Dakota said they haven't even started filming it yet. "We start sometime in the new year." To get her prepared, Ellen gave her a few gifts: a blue flogger, a pair of blue handcuffs, a blue whip, and even a blue blanket with "Ellen's got me covered" written on it, for when she's naked on set.
Classic! Dakota thanked her for the "beautiful" gifts. They are pretty sparkly. Jamie Dornan's Christian Grey may appreciate them in the next movies (that cab driver may like them too).

Here's part of Dakota's talk with Ellen:
