Dakota Johnson is an American actor and model. The youngest of three daughters of actors Don Johnson and Mel Gibson, she made her first film appearance at the age of eleven in Crazy in Alabama, an edgy dark comedy movie starring her younger sister, Kenya. She went on to have minor roles in movies including Happy Gilmore and The Perfect Score, but her career spanned only two years. Since then, she has established herself as one of today’s most notable and attractive actresses, best known for her starring role in the TV drama 24.
Dakota Johnson was born in Mississippi in 1955, the youngest of four children of African American entertainers Huey Lewis and Thelma Tindle. Her parents, irritated by the racism of the time, thought that it might be a good idea to have Dakota in school just like her siblings, just in case her biological father was not around. She would go on to study acting in New York, getting selected as an extra in some films before moving back to Los Angeles.

The Miss Golden Globe Awards was a turning point in the career of Dakota Johnson. She was nominated for the first time for her performance in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey, earning her first Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role. She went on to play the lead role in the second fifty shades film, for which she was nominated again for the best actress award at the Oscars. She also appeared in the third installment of the series, The Hunger Games, which was one of the biggest box office successes of 2021. Dakota Johnson is one of the few black women in Hollywood whose name is linked to the success of several blockbuster movies, ranging from the Oscar-winning Beats by Don Draper to the poorly received Me Before You.
Dakota Johnson was interviewed in the Hollywood publication Variety, where she discussed the progress of her movie roles, as well as her love of dogs. She went on to talk about her experience playing the lead role in Fifty Shades of Grey, saying she had read the book several times and was aware of the relationship between Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey at the beginning of the movie. She said she enjoyed the scene when Anastasia’s parents discover she is a Grey. Dakota referred to Grey as “her psychiatrist” in the movie.
In the same Hollywood Writers Guild interview, Dakota Johnson spoke about how hard she worked to get the roles that she has landed. She said that in the past she had tried to break into the entertainment industry with little luck. However, in the last year, she had two hits, including the award-winning The Kids Are All Right and was nominated for an Oscar for her role. She went on to say that she feels proud and fortunate to be a member of the Hollywood elite. Dakota recalled working with the late Donners and Wahlberg in the past and praised their creativity. She also talked about working with a young director who she had not worked with before, calling him an “amazing” talent.
Following a mention of her role in Fifty Shades of Grey, Johnson was asked about her chance of receiving a Golden Globe nomination for her role. She told the publication that while she was happy with the outcome of the movie, she didn’t get a chance to wish the film victory or see her name on the list of actors nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Dakota Johnson did, however, compliment Matthew McConaughey for his leading role as Anastasia Steele in the movie, and said that it was important that the audience see Anastasia as a true person and not just a picture.
Finally, when asked about Fifty Shades of Grey and whether or not she would watch the movie again, Dakota Johnson shared her views on the controversial books and materials. She said that even though she is a fan of the trilogy herself, she would like to see some of the changes in the story to make it more palatable to contemporary audiences. When asked about her chances of winning the Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role in the upcoming film, Dakota Johnson was coy about sharing any specific names of producers or film directors with media reporters but did tell the publication that the first movie in the trilogy is by her favorite director, which is helmer Simon Beaufroy.
