Dakota Johnson lunches with an A-list hunk, Rita Ora and Victor Rasuk dish on the flick and more!
Johnson, who stars as Ana Steele in the steamy series, has long been dating boyfriend Jordan Masterson, but she was spotted this week on what looked an awful lot like a lunch date with Star Trek and Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch!
The duo reportedly first met at the 2014 Met Gala on Monday (May 3), then were spotted out for lunch in New York City the very next day (Tuesday, May 4) with another lady in tow.
It's unclear whether or not the outing was a romantic one, but Cumberbatch is said to be single after splitting with his girlfriend of 12 years, Olivia Poulet, and he had no problem smiling up a storm with Johnson and their pal. He also simultaneously tried throwing off paps and making the gals laugh by obscuring his face with a napkin. We're keeping an eye on this potential pairing! You can see photos of the outing here.
Meanwhile, fellow Fifty Shades Of Grey stars Rita Ora (who stars as Christian Grey's sister, Mia Grey) and Victor Rasuk (who plays Jose, Anastasia Steele's friend-zoned pal) are gushing about their involvement on the movie.
Rasuk told Global Grind that he never realized just how huge a phenomenon Fifty Shades Of Grey really is until his own friends and family started reacting to his casting in the EL James-inspired movie.
"I didn't realize how big of a deal it was until I was casted and then I realized that almost half of my friends and my family have read the book," he admitted. "They were all like, 'Oh my God, you're playing Jose!' It's super cool to be part of something that has such a huge fanbase, but I think that creatively and behind the scenes on that movie, everyone was so devoted to getting the story and everything about it right -- not only for the story, but also for the fans," he said. "I think that everyone's gonna love it when it comes out, because I think we really did it justice." KEEP READING!
