Sure, Take Your Daughter to Work Day is always educational, but actress Dakota Johnson reveals that there were times that she didn’t particularly enjoy it growing up,
Johnson’s parents are actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, and the “Fifty Shades of Grey” star tells Net-A-Porter that she was present on set for her parents’ sex scenes when she was younger.
“I was around for a lot of it, and I would watch them,” she says of being on set with her folks. “There were also things I could see that I didn’t want to, like watch my parents have sex with other people.”
Although both her father and mother were given accolades for their respective performances over the years, the 26-year-old starlet recalls more uncomfortable moments while on set.
“And there was a scene where my mom got slapped in the face,” she adds. “I lost my mind! I couldn’t deal with that at all.”
Although Dakota had to suffer through her parents’ sex scenes, both Johnson and Griffith have said that they are not open to watching their sweet girl act out S&M in the film adaptation of E.L. James’ exotic novels.
“I think it would be strange,” Griffith stated on the Oscars red carpet after her daughter encouraged her to watch it.
However, Johnson had a different request from his child. He confessed to Entertainment Tonight that Dakota urged him not to see the film.
