Consider it one of the benefits of dating the film’s executive producer, Kristin Chenoweth got to visit the set of the highly anticipated movie “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
“I think it’s going to be done very, very tasteful,” Chenoweth told E! online about the erotic love story based on the best-selling books by E.L. James.
Though she didn’t see much on the closed Vancouver set, the 45-year-old Broadway star had a chance to meet stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson.
“I do see how they both got the parts,” Chenoweth told E!, adding that they “could not have been lovelier. That always helps. ‘You’re talented and you’re nice?’ Fantastic!”
According to E!, the “Wicked” star has been dating the film’s executive producer, Dana Brunetti, 40. She accompanied him to Sunday’s Oscars where his film, “Captain Phillips” was nominated for best picture. She even took the producer to meet her parents in Oklahoma.
“My mom’s like, ‘Are you doing porn?’ Is that ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ porn?’” she recalled to E!. “I’m like, ‘Stop talking, mom! Quiet.’”
Without sharing much about the film, which wrapped recently, Brunetti told “Access Hollywood” on the Oscar red carpet that the film is “not a porn” and will have an R rating.
As president of Kevin Spacey’s Trigger Street Productions, Brunetti and Spacey are behind the Emmy Award-winning Netflix series “House of Cards.”
After she started dating Brunetti, Chenoweth watched the show for the first time.
“We started ‘House of Cards’ and it was an all-nighter,” she told E! “I don’t know about you, but I could not stop.”
Chenoweth is hoping her relationship with Brunetti continues as well.
“I feel like things are going very well,” the “Glee” star told E!. “If I say any more, you know it’ll bomb tomorrow, so I don’t want to jinx it!”
