Johnson - "I was just so relieved. I was crying and crying"

Dakota Johnson has revealed that she burst into tears when she was offered the role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey.

The actress told Entertainment Weekly: "They said, 'You got the offer' and I couldn't speak."

Johnson continued: "I was just so relieved. I was crying and crying. Water was literally squirting out of my eyes because I had been so stressed out. And there's this giant Doberman Pinscher laying on the bed next to me and he just slowly fell asleep.

"It was so special and [this dog] didn't give a **** about me and what I was going through."

The 24-year-old will star opposite The Fall's Jamie Dornan in the adaptation of EL James' novel.
