Dakota Johnson will ''take the rest of the year off'' after 'Fifty Shades of Grey'.

The 25-year-old actress - who stars as Anastasia Steele in the novel adaptation - has revealed that she will be catching up with her family and friends once the film is released next month.

She said: ''[I'll] do a bit of press for 'Fifty', and then I'm just going to take the rest of the year off.

''I want to hang out with my friends. I want to hang out with my family - well, I sometimes want to hang out with my family!''

Dakota was ''fearless and brave'' throughout the filming for the movie and the connection with her on-screen lover, played by Jamie Dornan, was ''special'', according to the film's director, Sam Taylor-Johnson.

She shared: ''There are tough scenes in this movie, scenes where she had to be naked - and not just in the flesh. But she was utterly fearless and brave.''

Speaking of the two stars, she added: ''[They] have a very special connection. I trust her with everything. She has a very level head, and there was never really an anxious moment.''

Dakota's 32-year-old co-star also spoke highly of her, revealing that she was a ''perfect'' actress.

Speaking in the February 2015 issue of Vogue magazine, he said: ''Humour on a film set goes a long way. But she also had the ability to be a very strong dramatic actress.

''She'd be telling a joke one minute and breaking your heart on-screen the next - so she was perfect.''
