After spending two hours establishing the relationship between Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, Fifty Shades of Grey caught many viewers by surprise with its rather abrupt ending. In the film’s final few scenes, Ana asks Christian to show her just how bad things can get in his playroom. After he obliges her by spanking her six times with a belt, she spends the night in tears, only to wake up and leave Christian. Walking out of his apartment, Ana gets on the elevator, and in a scene that mirrors their first meeting, we watch as the doors close… and then the screen fades to black.
Yes, that’s really the end of the film. And yes, that’s more or less how it happened in the book.
More specifically, in the book, the scene begins when Ana finds Christian playing sad music at the piano, which then leads to the two of them talking about his desire to punish her and his refusal to tell her why he is the way he is. Unable to imagine leaving him behind, Ana asks Christian to show her. In her words: “Punish me. I want to know how bad it can get.” Sound familiar?
From there, the scene plays out just as it does in the movie, minus a few minor details. There’s a belt, he spanks her six times, and it changes everything for her. However, the biggest change is that, in the book, when he visits her later that night, he gets into bed with her and holds her as she admits her love for him. When he tells her that she can’t love him, Ana gets up and leaves right then, refusing to stay the night. As she’s heading to the elevator, she stops Christian from hugging her, telling him “I can’t do this.”
In the film, the word choice is slightly different. This seems like a small detail, but it actually ended up being a point of contention for the film’s creators: When Christian goes to kiss Ana in the film, she yells at him to “stop.” According to The Hollywood Report, this was book author E. L. James’ choice; in Patrick Marber’s script rewrite Anna instead said “red,” otherwise known as her safe word.
But here’s where the movie made a smart choice—by not including what happens after the elevator doors shut. The book’s ending is much more drawn-out— Ana sobs on the car ride home before finally making it to her apartment, then collapses on her bed to sob some more. Basically, fans should be happy for the film’s abrupt ending; it sends the same message in a shorter amount of time.
From a storytelling perspective, though, it certainly seems like a strange choice—the film spends its entire run time building a relationship, only to tear it apart in the final 20 minutes. If the first Fifty Shades ends up being the only book in the trilogy that’s adapted, fans could certainly argue that director Sam Taylor-Johnson and her screenwriters should’ve changed the ending. Considering how unlikely it is that Universal would pass up on the money-making machines that would be Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, it’s understandable that the ending stayed as it was. In fact, it’s probably the bravest thing the film does—if anything, audiences going into Fifty Shades are not expecting things to suddenly fade to black.
But then again, isn’t black technically a shade of grey?
It's almost here.
After months of anticipation, the and millions of randy fans will line up to see if the jaw-dropping sexcapades that made the book an international sensation are just as hot on screen.
Naturally, a major factor in whether or not the film adaptation will work is the chemistry (or lack thereof) between leads Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
Unfortunately, if Johnson and Dornan's press tour is any indication, the relationship between the co-stars is less hot and heavy and more ho-hum.
The earliest indication that Johnson and Dornan are less than BFFs came during a Today Show interview to promote the first Fifty Shades trailer.
The tension between the two was so clear that Natalie Morales asked (jokingly) if they hate each other. She seemed a bit taken aback when Dornan nodded yes, and Johnson simply dodged the question and that's just one of many awkward interviews involving the two people who are supposed to convincingly pretend to be mad with lust for one another.
In fact, sources close to the film say that thus far the Fifty Shades press tour has been an utter disaster.
In addition to the fact that Dornan and Johnson seem unable to hide their contempt for one another, their lack of enthusiasm for the film itself is often obvious when they're describing their steamier onscreen interactions.
Sex scenes are obviously central to the film and both actors seem to be going out of their way to provide spectacularly un-sexy descriptions when asked about their characters' famously kinky coitus.
Johnson has described filming the scenes as a "task," Dornan has said that he found filming to be unpleasant and stated that he would "take a long shower" before returning home to his wife.
So who's up for two co-stars who hate each other and were clearly disgusted by their own love scenes? We think the John Oliver Fifty Shades audition might have actually been sexier than that.
But, on the bright side for us Greyesseds Director Sam Taylor-Johnson just confirmed that both sequels are coming, but if the rumors are true and Dornan and Johnson can´t stand each other I really dont see how that is gonna work out.

Katy Perry´s Super Bowl halftime show may have ended in fireworks, but for her and on-again boyfriend John Mayer?, not so much.
" Katy thinks that he is jealous of her career sucess and says its affecting their relationship" a source close to the couple reveals. " John was there with her during the Super Bowl and has been incredibly supportive", the insider says.
But apparently it´s her ego that has gotten out of hand and she claims that he cannot admit he is jealous and that is the main problem right now.
"John does not have a lot going on right now with his career and she thinks that he is taking out on her because everything is going so amazing for her right now" the source also adds.
It´s is safe to say that he tables have turned as far as who is more succesfull in the relationship.
MAyer, 37, and Perry, 30, started dating in August 2012, but broke up a year later in March, 2013. However, just a few months later the on-again-off-again couple got back together just a few months later, but they broke up again over Mayer´s alleged infidelities, oh my what a couple!.
As many sources report this is not the first time that this couple has dealt with rumored jealousy issues. "John pursued Katy relenteless because it drove him crazy to see her with DJ Diplo" another source previously revealed, referring to her brief relationship with the DJ, wich ended when the DJ announced that his ex-gilfriend was pregnant with his child.
John is a musical legend of his time and Katy used to look to him for advice, but now that the tables have apparently turned, do you think Katy and John should stay together or break up once again, even if they did broke up again this couple doesn´t seem to stay again for long, so who knows.
And yet, that is exactly what happened when Jamie Dornan took to twitter in an impromptu Q&A to answer the fans about the upcoming- released on Valentine´s Day - very much expected film Fifty Shades of Grey.
The star took a break from press interviews to speak directly to the fans of the upcoming movie online. As one can expect some of the questions weren´t exactly family friendly.
One follower couldn't help but go there and ask about those steamy sex scenes we've heard so much about, you have to very bold to ask something like this, but hey, I´ll take it, this is what they asked:
"Now will '50 Shades' give me a big ‘ol boner the same way ‘The Fall' did?" user Jenny Johnson asked . What do you know? Mr. Dornan had quite the answer.
"@JennyJohnsonHi5 Bigger than you know how to handle #AskJamieDornan," he replied. Hey-Oh!
Just last week, the Brit star spilled secrets about what fans can expect between his character Christian Grey and his love interest Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson).
"I think it's sexy. I think it's erotic, but we stayed true to the love story above all, which is so important," Dornan told E! News "Of course it's erotic, but you don't get a series of three books like that—a story that's spanned over three books—purely out of erotica."
And for the record, his Twitter Q&A wasn't 100 percent raunchy by any means. The 32-year-old gushed about his wife and admitted "tequila and my family" make him the happiest.
And out of all those NSFW moments captured for the cameras, Dornan admitted it was actually the negotiation scene that was his favorite to film.
Thank God Valentine´s Day is almost here. XOXO
Even though I´m only 18, Saved By the Bell was a huge part of my childhood and I was extremely happy (as I´m sure were other million of people) when Jimmy Fallon hosted an impromptu, yet, amazing Saved by the Bell reunion, I mean who didn´t miss Zack, Kelly, Jessie, Slater, Screech and Lisa and last but not least The Max and Bayside High, however many fans were throughly surprised when neither Screech nor Lisa were part of said reunion, even though his manager said Dustin Diamond "wasn´t available due to previous commitments" we all know the real reason why he wasn´t invited (do we really need to revisit the whole "He stabbed a guy in some random fight", I don´t think so) but where was Lisa Turtle and why didn´t Lark Voorhies helped her former costars give major flashback feelings, we get the same answer, according to her publicist Lark wasn´t available due to, and I quote again, " previous commitments" . Lark was spotted making a rare public appearence on September, 2014, the day after The Unathorized Saved by the Bell Story was aired on Lifetime, and in regards to Diamond, I don´t believe that any of the former cast members are willingly wanting to work with him again, due to the fact of his scandalous tell all story which was the prime material for Lifetime´s higly critized movie.
However Mark-Paul Gosselaar took to twitter to express his thanks in regards of the reunion, saying and I quote " Thank you for all the love and support. I´m so happy you enjoyed tonight. Let´s do it again sometime. Good night"
So who knows, maybe in the future there is hope for another Saved by the Bell reunion, this time with the whole cast, because even though Zack was the main character we can´t help but miss Screech´s crazy anthics and Lisa´s amazing fashion sense.
This has been everything for today, but stay tuned and I will be back with more gossip. XOXO.
