It might be the freezing cold dead of winter, but things are about to burn up with the theatrical release of Fifty Shades of Grey this weekend, AMIRIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT? Eh? Eh? Anyone. Right then, moving on. Unless you've been living under a really unsexy rock, you know that Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are bringing Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele to life on the big screen for a most perfectly-suited Valentine's Day treat. Well, for some, at least. You might be wondering if Christian's affinity for kink means that he's also a womanizer. Does Christian date other women besides Ana? NOPE. In fact, Christian is wholly committed to Ana in their steamy, yet tumultuous relationship.
It turns out the lengths at which they are willing to go in the bedroom are a testament to just how devoted they are to each other. However, Ana yearns for love and a "real" relationship while Christian is more turned on by the idea of possession and dominance. You can see where things get complicated, despite the fact Christian uses actual contracts in his "relationships" with women. Sorry Kanye, your "holla we want pre-nup," has nothing on this guy.
The scintillating romance tells the tale of two lovers who are so wrong for each other that it hurts so good... wait, hang on, I'm getting my metaphors mixed up here. Anyhow, Ana is a quiet, reserved writer while Christian is a suave and confident billionaire, who happens to be very into BDSM. It's like Romeo and Juliet, but less socially-acceptable to read in public and is the literary opposite of Shakespeare. Again, I digress. Needless to say, these two really let their freak flags fly.
So, is Christrian Grey a heartbreaker? Absolutely... just not in the way you might expect when you catch the movie this weekend.
Now one more gif for the road before you hit the theater:
