It is so painless to choose the same profession as their parents. Especially not if the parents are known and scandalous. The American actor Dakota Johnson, 28, who is known for her role in Fifty Shades Freed.
Dakota Johnson is the daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. Melanie was one of 80's most popular movie stars, famous for her roles in movies like Body Double, Something Wild and Working Girl. In recent years, we have not heard much from her. Dakota's dad is Don Johnson, best known from the classic 80s series Miami Vice. Grandmother is Tippi Hedren, who was Alfred Hitchcock's favorite actress and most famous from the Hitchcock movies The Birds and Marnie. Dakota's stiff cardboard is Antonio Banderas, who we saw in films like Matador, Desperado, Frida and Evita. Dakota grew up with her mother Melanie and her stepfather Antonio, who were married for 19 years.
"Antonio worked a lot when I was little," said Dakota Johnson to VOYAGE. "My little sister, Stella, and I followed him and mom on sets all over the world. My childhood was the clean frame carousel. There was really no normal upbringing. I never forget when we lived in Budapest for six months while Antonio filmed Evita alongside Madonna."
"I went to school in the hotel room and spent the rest of the time with various babysitters. I used to be on my travels and had to get new friends when I came to new places. There were no routines in our family life. When I moved to Los Angeles as a teenager to study, I had difficulty adapting to how other people lived."
Through mom Melanie, Dakota has seen the backside of the celebrity. In recent years, Melanie has had difficulty getting good film and television roles, she has been tampered with addiction and suffered from depression.
