Forget Christian Grey, Dakota Johnson May’ve Found Romance with Jon Hamm
Christian Grey is a fantasy — and we don’t mean that in the we-can’t-stop-fantasizing-about-him way; we mean that in the he’s-not-real way. It’s difficult to remember that sometimes when you see Jamie Dornan in all of his glory, but it’s the cold, hard truth. You know who is real, though? Jon Hamm. And it looks like Dakota Johnson may’ve just discovered that herself.
In the Fifty Shades of Grey movie franchise, Dakota’s character can do nothing but think about her beloved Christian. But, off screen, she can forget all about him ’cause she may have a real man on her hands.
According to Page Six, the 28-year-old actress may be seeing the 46 year-year-old actor. The two stars were reportedly spotted drinking wine at Kingside in the Viceroy Central Park hotel on Thursday, October 5, after the Mad Men alum hosted the Brooklyn Black Tie Ball.
“They seemed to really be enjoying each other’s company,” one spy said of the pair’s “low-key” night, adding that they were hanging out for roughly two hours.
And that wasn’t even the first time DJ and JH were spotted in each other’s company. Back in April, the rumored couple was photographed together at Elton John‘s 70th birthday party.
Prior to this buzz, the last person Dakota was linked to was male model/lead singer & guitarist for indie rock band Drowners Matthew Hitt. The couple dated for two years before they split up in July 2016, the same year she ironically promoted her movie, How to Be Single.
As for John, he’s been living the Don Draper life of bachelorhood since his April 2015 split from his partner of 18 years, Jennifer Westfeldt. Post-breakup, he was rumored to date Jenny Slate and spotted flirting with Kate Beckinsale.
Of course, this isn’t the only Fifty Shades-related news of the week. It’s also been announced that E.L. James‘ new book, Darker: Fifty Shades Darker as Told by Christian, will be available on November 28. Between that and the February 2018 release of the Fifty Shades Freed film, fans of the tale have a lot to celebrate.
Before Dakota Johnson, a lot of other famous ladies were up for the part of Anastasia Steele:
Shailene was asked to audition for the film, but turned down the chance. She explained her decision by saying, “It’s because I had already done Divergent and I knew there was no way I wanted to do multiple franchises at the same time, because that’s crazy, so I didn’t see the point in it.”
