Turns out the "Fifty Shades" director enjoyed the film less than you

 

Fifty Shades of Grey

No matter what you thought of the first Fifty Shades of Grey flick, there's an even more juicy story coming out from behind the scenes.

The film's director Sam Taylor-Johnson has been giving a series of very candid interviews about her experience with the blockbuster, and she's not holding back. 

“With the benefit of hindsight would I go through it again?" she said to the Sunday Times. "Of course I wouldn’t. I’d be mad.”

Her main difficulty came from the series' author E.L. James who had a very specific vision for her books on screen - one that she wouldn't comprimise on easily. Talking to the Hollywood Reporter, Taylor-Johnson said: “Every scene was fought over. It was tough. It was like wading uphill through sticky tar. Her thing was, ‘This is what the fans expect.’ I’d be like, ‘Well, let’s try and hit those marks but create a new universe at the same time.’”

But it seemed the problems went deeper than just the creative process. “I like everyone — and I get really confused when they don’t like me, "Taylor-Johnson said to the Sunday Times. "I was so confused by E.L. James. I don’t understand when I can’t navigate a person, when there’s no synergy.”

It's all a pretty good indication of why Taylor-Johnson didn't return to direct Fifty Shades Darker (which bombed at the box office in comparison to its predecessor) and says she has "zero interest" in watching the other flicks in the series. But on the very slim chance Taylor-Johnson releases her own director's cut, that's a version of Fifty Shades we might all be keen to see.
