Red carpet interviews typically play it safe. Unless, of course, the actress you’re talking to is Dakota Johnson, and the movie you’re talking about is Fifty Shades of Grey. In an interview with host Ryan Seacrest at the 2015 Oscars, Johnson finally revealed what prop she took home from the set of the movie: A flogger.

A flogger is a common BDSM toy, used and seen throughout Fifty Shades of Grey. Composed of a handle and a brush, the toy can be used to inspire pleasure (via the brush), or as a whip. So while it’s unclear how or where Dakota will keep the flogger (will she store it on her fireplace mantel, like a trophy, or an Oscar?), we were super excited to hear her totally perfect answer.

Dakota also revealed that her parents “didn’t see the movie.” Unsurprising, given that the movie does feature their daughter committing random acts of BDSM.

While Fifty Shades hasn’t exactly attracted best picture nominations, the movie is easily one of the most talked about films of the past year. Whatever you think of it – and opinions have been varied – the movie has been credited for introducing erotica and sadomasochism to popular culture. Now, even the movie’s lead actress admitting to keep a flogger as a keepsake.

This might be the best answer of our Red Carpet evening.
