Working Girl star Melanie Griffith and her daughter, future Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson, attended the Don Jon premiere in New York City on Thursday (September 12). Both in black, the mother-daughter duo walked the red carpet together at the SVA Theatre.
Earlier this month, author E L James Tweeted, “I am delighted to let you know that the lovely Dakota Johnson has agreed to be our Anastasia in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey.”
After James’ announcement, Melanie tweeted, “My beautiful child Dakota has been chosen to play Anna Steele in 50 Shades!!! Look out world! Here she comes!!! #proudmama.”
The 23-year-old actress – whose father is Miami Vice star Don Johnson – is set to sizzle with costar Charlie Hunnam in the big screen adaption of the sexy novel.
Until now, Dakota was best known for her role in The Social Network – in which she shared a love scene with Justin Timberlake – and her appearances in 21 Jump Street, The Five-Year Engagement and Beastly.
