Fifty Shades of Grey is polarising. Being indifferent towards the series isn’t easy, especially once you’ve seen it. You either love it or hate it. And now, after the first trailer for Fifty Shades Darker, the sequel to the worldwide blockbuster is out, the debate is only going to get louder.
If only to fuel that hot, hot fire, we decided to pit Dakota Johnson, who plays the willingly abused Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades movies, against some of the most iconic heroines of classic erotic thrillers.
You’ll notice that if you were born in the ’80s, you could probably make the case that it was the best time to be alive ever. That being said, the Fifty Shades series has rekindled the modern audience’s romance with erotic thrillers - even if most of them, like Christian Grey, don’t treat them too well.
But remember, this is not a ranking, just a list. So if you have any favourites, vote for them in poll down below.
Sharon Stone (Basic Instinct, 1992)
Glenn Close (Fatal Attraction, 1987)
Maggie Gyllenhaal (Secretary, 2002)
Kathleen Turner (Body Heat, 1981)
Nicole Kidman (Eyes Wide Shut, 1999)
