Resilience is an attitude that Dakota Johnson has always had, even at a very young age when she decided she did not want to take the path her parents set for her. Upon finishing high school, the “50 Shades” star told his famous parents Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith that he would seek his own path in acting, and he did.
As Don Johnson revealed in a recent interview, Dakota Johnson warned him one day that college was not his destination, so he immediately had to come up with a plan to pursue his dreams. However, she had to do it on her own without the allowance from her parents.
“The funny thing about her is that we have a rule in the family that, you know, if you stay in school, you can stay on the payroll. So if you go to college, you can stay on the payroll. At the end of high school, I went to see her and said, ‘So you want to go visit some colleges?’ Or something like that. And she was like, ‘Oh no. I’m not going to college, ‘” Don Johnson recalled in a recent interview.
While some had doubts about what he would do, Dakota Johnson quickly got down to business and “managed,” her father said. She took her first steps in the cinema until she reached the top of world fame as Anastasia Steele in the “50 Shades of Gray” saga. So far the actress is one of the most sought after by directors and screenwriters in Hollywood.
Beyond the restrictions of the Covid-19 pandemic, Dakota Johnson had a very busy 2020 and now everything seems to indicate that this year it will be the same way. The actress, 30, was spotted in Greece recording the scenes of a movie that had been already confirmed.
