Wonder if Natalie Morales ever ran into this situation when she was going to journalism school?
While visiting the Vancouver set of the highly-anticipated Focus Features movie “Fifty Shades of Grey”, the “Today” show news anchor found out a new term from stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan. When she uncomfortably asked the stars of the movie based on the hit E.L. James novel — she’s admitted that she read the entire “Fifty Shades” series — about how they stay “in the zone” while shooting the sex scenes, Johnson joked that Dornan had a “fluffer.”
Marshaling all her training, Morales asked what a “fluffer” was, and Dornan tried to explain in as morning-friendly a way as possible. He shouldn’t have bothered, because as soon as the word “fluffer” came out of Johnson’s mouth, the clip was doomed to be a web extra. But what a web extra it is.
Johnson concludes the clip by jokingly expressing surprise that there were any sexual scenes in the film at all. Luckily, Morales didn’t ask any follow-up questions after that.
