Universal Pictures’ Fifty Shades Darker picks up less than a week after the events of the 2015 blockbuster Fifty Shades of Grey.
At one point, DeGeneres asks Dornan if he was required to wax his body before stripping on camera, as tWitch did for Magic Mike XXL. “I’m not a particularly hirsute person, really,” the blushing actor says.
Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed were filmed back-to-back, with the third installment in the trilogy hitting theaters on Feb. 9, 2018.
DeGeneres devises an idea for a fourth film and asks Dornan to act out a scene for her spoof, Fifty Shades Darkest.
As a wigged Dornan relaxes in bed, DeGeneres enters the room with a breast plate and a low-cut top.
As she repeatedly clamps down on her staple remover, Dornan says, “I’m not really into that. I don’t think anybody is into that.” Feeling “Silly,” DeGeneres pulls out her next makeshift sex toy: a stapler.
“That’s a $2,000 tie!” Dornan protests.
DeGeneres has one more thing in her Staples bag-something that makes Dornan squirm.
