Five Things We Love About Dakota Johnson
1. She said this in an interview with Elle: ”I don’t have any problem doing anything. The secret is I have no shame.”
Umm..we totally love that attitude! If she can have no shame while acting out some, ahem, interesting scenes with Jamie Dornan, then we can be less ashamed of being the first one to dance at the birthday party or sing in the shower.
2. Her mom is Melanie Griffith. Her dad is Don Johnson.
And we love Melanie Griffity in Working Girl. Don Johnson’s not too bad himself in Miami Vice.
3. She understands that not all love stories are the same:
“I just really understand it,” said Johnson. “I think it’s an incredible love story and that’s why it’s affected so many people. Erica (EL James) did a really good job of explaining how that just can happen sometimes and you have this chemical pull to someone. Adding in the sex makes it perfect. Sometimes you feel a little bit naughty and that’s okay.” (from an EW interview)
4. She’s funny.
She was able to hold her own opposite hilarious front-man Jason Segel in The Five Year Engagement.
5. She and Jamie Dornan look really, really good together.
We know that’s a superficial reason..but who cares? We’re just really excited about the movie, ok?
