'Fifty Shades' Director Wanted a 'Natural' Look For Anastasia's Sex Scenes - and Got It!
By Zach Seemayer
Fifty Shades of Grey is heavy on the sex and seduction, and we know that there's at least one aspect of the film that has its own story arc: Anastasia Steel's pubic hair.
According to Fifty Shades director Sam Taylor Johnson, who went on HuffPost Live to talk about her sophomore directorial effort, she wanted to make sure Anastasia’s naked form resembled a real person's body, instead of the hairless god-like figures in most erotic film fare.
"It was a conscious choice. [Dakota Johnson] and I had a very funny discussion about the arc and journey of her pubic hair," Taylor-Johnson said. "She should start one way, and she goes on this journey with it, and in line with how it’s written in the book, is the journey of that."
