A spy snuck on set.
There were rumors that a woman lied and said she was a PA and snuck on set and started doing little manual things like putting Cokes in the cooler. Finally somebody started a conversation with her, and something seemed weird, and we discovered that she was a spy.
There was giggling during sex scenes.
According to director James Foley, when they did the sex stuff, it’s always kind of a little bit tense and people get shy — but then one of the other of them would giggle, and it was all OK.
They shot the sex scenes in total privacy.
The sex scenes are always closed set, which just means you’re down to the minimum number of people in the room. And since the camera’s on a big crane, you remotely control it, so even the camera operator is not in the room.
E. L. James was on set all the time.
She had her own little producer’s village and she was there every day.
The elevator scene was the hardest scene for Dakota to shoot.
It was a fake elevator. Dakota Johnson said that it was the hardest scene for her to shoot. Director James Foley said he was so surprised because it wasn’t that explicit or anything, but she said she’s surrounded by these extras, these strangers.
