"Fifty Shades of Grey" stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan were paid a relatively modest $250,000 for the film, but they're hoping to earn a hefty increase for the two sequels, according to a report.

The actors are trying to renegotiate for seven-figure raises for "Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed," according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie has already grossed $528.7 million worldwide.

"That was the great thing about this film -- we knew we were going to be able to make stars," said Dana Brunetti, one of the movie's producers. "Now it's their opportunity to get paid on other projects. It's been a breakout role for both of them. I'm sure they are getting tons of offers on other things."

Trainor's breakthrough

Meghan Trainor has just been announced as the recipient of the Breakthrough Artist of the Year Award at the Music Biz 2015 Awards, which will take place in May in Nashville.

Trainor, 21, has lit up the charts thanks to her debut album "Title," which includes the hits "All About That Bass" and "Lips are Movin."

"When I first wrote 'All About that Bass,' I had no idea that it would completely change my life, but I'm glad that the song's message of self-empowerment has caught on," Trainor said upon hearing about her award.
