The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer that aired during a Scandal commercial break had us got us in our feelings and squirming in our seats, but it’s the most recent trailer for the movie that has us cracking up. One of our favorite funny women, Ellen DeGeneres decided to spoof the trailer by replacing herself with actress, Dakota Johnson—she plays Grey’s love interest, Anastasia Steele.
In classic Ellen-fashion, the comedienne kept a serious face when she introduced her “new leading role,” during yesterday’s episode of The Ellen Show.
“What happens is I get cast and show up and I work like a professional. I learn my lines and I really prepare the scenes, and for some stupid reason, the part gets cut—until now,” she said before announcing her new role. “The Fifty Shades of Grey movie is coming out net year and I am so happy and proud to say I got the lead role—They’re acting like it’s Dakota Johnson. It’s not. It’s me. Because no one know knows their way around a whip more than me.”
Press play to watch Ellen DeGeneres and her usual goofy antics in the Fifty Shades of Grey trailer. Maybe this version wouldn’t be so bad to see, no?
