“Fifty Shades Darker” star Dakota Johnson appeared to have chosen co-star Jamie Dornan over her ex-boyfriend Matthew Hitt. Was her filming schedule to much for Hitt or was it the rampant rumors of Johnson and Dornan’s affair that broke him?
According to Just Jared, the 26-year-old actress’ busy schedule filming with her 34-year-old leading man might have been the cause of her break-up from the 29-year-old musician.
“Dakota and Matthew have dated on-and-off for the past two years,” a source reportedly close to the couple shared with the entertainment site. “They didn’t get a chance to see much of each other recently because their work schedules didn’t align.”
“She’s been up in Vancouver shooting the ‘Fifty Shades’ trilogy,” the source added about the reported split of “Fifty Shades Darker” actress from her boyfriend.
The exes were said to be linked first in July 2014 but decided to part their ways in early 2015, then back in each other’s arms again a few months later before the most recent split news.
With rampant Jamie Dornan Dakota Johnson affair news, gossipmongers cannot help but speculate the breakup was more than just about scheduling problems. After all, Hitt knows Johnson has a hectic schedule because of the film.
Back in February, ET Online had the chance to talk to “Fifty Shades Darker” actress Dakota Johnson who hinted that her rigid filming calendar might have prompted her previous break-up from Matthew Hitt.
Meanwhile, she shared that the “wise dating advice” she got from her mom Melanie Griffith was never to “compromise” her dream with her lovelife.
“She always said not to compromise myself or my work or my dreams for anyone,” the former “Need for Speed” actress disclosed. “Especially a dude.”
In the meantime, back-to-back filming for “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed” continues as Jamie Dornan was seen in the most recent photos while on the set, Pop Sugar reported.
“He arrived to the filming location in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, on Tuesday looking like the superhot guy in your office you have a crush on (or, you know, Christian Grey) with sunglasses, a white button-down, and black pants,” the report described the look of the “Fifty Shades Darker” actor.
