She might be playing a sexy young woman in Fifty Shades Of Grey, but on this sunny day Dakota Johnson was all about comfort.
The 24-year-old actress looked more frumpy than sexy during a casual day out with her dog in Los Angeles on Tuesday.
Dakota hid her figure a loosely fitting outfit that included light, blue-patterned trousers better suited for a grandmother along with a white knit jumper.
At one point, the actress wore her brown hair pulled back in a bun and sunglasses to shield her eyes from the sun’s glare as she hit up a cafe.
She soon emerged holding several items all at once including a coffee, an iced beverage, a bagged snack and her pocketbook.
Later on, Dakota let her hair down as she walked her little canine friend around the neighbourhood.
The daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson is already generating lots of interest months ahead of the February 15 release of Fifty Shades Of Grey.
Footage from the movie, which is based on the bestseller by E.L. James about a student’s steamy relationship with a billionaire named Christian, was unveiled for the first time at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on March 25.
The clip showed her character, Anastasia Steele, transforming from modest and plain to sexy and sophisticated.
The camera picked up Christian’s collection of S&M toys and then showed photographs of Anastasia wearing a blindfold in the famous red room, and Christian pushing her up against a wall.
In an interview with Elle magazing, Dakota admitted she wasn’t afraid of filming sex scenes with her co-star Jamie Dornan.
‘I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame,’ she said.
‘Reading the book, I found myself more interested in the ways they were breaking each other down emotionally than the sex scenes.
‘I think there’s a part of a woman that wants to be the thing that breaks a man down.’
