Let's get this straight: Dakota Johnson is not playing Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey. Ellen DeGeneres is. "Because no one knows their way around a whip more than me," the TV talk show host insists.

She pulls off the hair and the awkward stares, taking the whole idea of being eyed up by Christian Grey in stride and being the Ellen we know and love. She'll make you cringe but laugh at the same time, especially when she's wrapped up in sheets and singing Hall & Oates' Maneater.

It's all good until she sees the Christian's Red Room of Pain, of course. Watch the whole video on Ellen Tube. And then, if you're so inclined, watch the actual trailer for the film below.
