Don Johnson, Dakota Johnson’s Dad, Won’t See ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

There’s one family member who won’t be seeing Dakota Johnson in “Fifty Shades of Grey” – her dad!

Don Johnson said he will be skipping his daughter’s big screen debut as Anastasia Steele when the film hits theaters next year – but not because he can’t handle see Dakota in the racy role.

“I probably will not see it just because it’s not a movie I would see,” he said, during an interview on “Good Morning Britain” this week. “I’ve never seen ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ I’ve never seen ‘Twilight.’ It’s in a category of films that I just wouldn’t be interested in.”

That said, Don has faith in Dakota’s acting ability.

“This is the family business,” he said. “This is what we do, and I am absolutely certain that Dakota will take a piece of material and a character which a lot of people might imagine could be inappropriate in some ways and turn it into something spectacular.”

Despite the buzzworthy role, Don said he thinks “Fifty Shades” is just the beginning for Dakota, whose mom is Melanie Griffith.

“Speaking like a proud father and also a seasoned professional, I can tell you that she is a gifted, gifted actress and this will just be one part in a long line of tremendous performances in her career,” he said.

“Fifty Shades of Grey” hits theaters on February 13, 2015.
