Since getting the role of Anastasia Steele in the highly anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey movie, Dakota Johnson has dove headfirst into her character’s world. In the process, though, she’s found that being Ana isn’t always exciting.

“[I’ve done] a lot of getting into the character’s head, in Ana’s headspace before she meets Christian, so it’s a lot of reading, which I love,” Dakota told Vanity Fair when she recently posed for the March 2014 issue. “She’s an English major, so that’s kinda boring.”

Fortunately, though, she’s enjoyed the actual filming of the movie a bit more — and Fifty Shades fans who are super excited about seeing their beloved book come to life on screen will be pleased to know that everything’s going well so far.

“It’s been a very smooth and fun and creative experience,” Dakota shared. “I think going into something like this, you kind of have fears of what it could be like, and none of those fears are happening.”

“We all get along really well and the crew’s amazing,” Dakota added. “We’re just all trying to make this project the best it can be.”

A year from this week and the film will finally be released — get your countdowns going, guys!
