Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson revealed to Ellen DeGeneres on her show on Friday that in real life, ever since starring in the sexy movie, she sends men “running for the hills.”

“Do you notice a difference in guys approaching you or not approaching you?” asked DeGeneres.

“You mean, like, when they run away from me?” Johnson, 25, joked.

“Like at a party, are people more attracted to you or you think people are scared of you?” said DeGeneres.

“I don’t know. I guess that, if those are the only two options, I guess that they’re scared of me,” replied Johnson.

“Those are the only two options,” quipped DeGeneres.

“I guess they either love me or they’re running for the hills. I guess they’re running for the hills,” Johnson said.

DeGeneres later gifted the actress with an Ellen-branded blue flogger, Ellen blue bedazzled handcuffs and a blanket that says “Ellen’s got me covered” for when she shoots the Fifty Shades of Grey sequel next year.
