Dakota Johnson and Matthew Hitt split again

Los Angeles - Dakota Johnson and Matthew Hitt have split up.

The 26-year-old actress and the 29-year-old musician - who first split in 2015 before reconciling - have called time on their romance because of work commitments.

A source told Just Jared: "Dakota and Matthew have dated on-and-off for the past two years. 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."

Dakota previously admitted she is too busy for love when she was asked if her boyfriend liked Fifty Shades of Grey, in which she stars as Anastasia Steele.

She said at the time: "My hypothetical beloved thinks it's great. He's really supportive.

"I don't have a lot of time for a relationship. I'm too bustling sanctimonious and afterwards we go home and there's no one."

And she also admitted to going through a "phase" where she hated more things about men than she likes.

She said: "I think it's unsexy when a man chews with his mouth open or when a man is rude or wears fedoras. I hate fedoras.

"Oh God, I can find more things I hate about men than I like. I think it's just a phase!"

Meanwhile, Dakota previously insisted being in Fifty Shades affected her love life as men are scared to ask her out.

Referring to the racy scenes in the hit movie, she said: "Some people think S&M is something I'm interested in, in my private life, which is not the case.

"I'm an actor, I pretend. But I guess it's something that happens with a lot of actors; people think that, in real life, they are like the characters they play."
