ABOUT

Dakota Mayi Johnson, was born on October 4, 1989 in Austin, Texas. She is the daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. And the maternal granddaughter of actress Tippi Hedren. She has six half-siblings; four on her father's side and two on her mother's side.

 

Johnson attended Aspen Community School, Colorado. She later attended the Santa Catalina School in Monterey for her freshman year of high school before transferring to New Roads School in Santa Monica. She was an avid dancer as a child and she became interested in modeling at age 12 after a photo shoot with children of other celebrities for Teen Vogue.

 

She had her screen debut alongside her mother in the comedy-drama Crazy in Alabama 1999 and was named Miss Golden Globe in 2006. Following high school graduation, she returned to acting with roles in The Social Network 2010, Beastly 2011, 21 Jump Street 2012, Need for Speed 2014 and the short-lived TV comedy Ben and Kate 2012–2013.

 

She received international recognition in 2015 after landing the lead role of Anastasia Steele in the romantic drama Fifty Shades of Grey, which catapulted her to fame and earned her the People's Choice Award for Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress. The same year, she gave critically acclaimed performances in Black Mass and A Bigger Splash, which garnered her a BAFTA Rising Star Award nomination. She also starred in the romantic comedy How to Be Single 2016.

 

In answer to questions regarding her stance on gender rights with respect to her role in Fifty Shades, Johnson stated: "I'm proud of [the movie]. I completely disagree with people who think Ana's weak. I think she's actually stronger than he is. Everything she does is her choice. And if I can be an advocate for women to do what they want to do with their bodies and not be ashamed of what they want, then I'm all for that."
