Dakota Johnson's Stepdad Antonio Banderas Reveals Real Reason He Won't See 'Fifty Shades'

Dakota Johnson got the seal of approval from mom Melanie Griffith and dad Don Johnson to take on the controversial role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey. But, as we've learned since the movie's release, that doesn't necessarily mean they want to watch their little girl have kinky on-screen sex. Now, we finally get to hear from another important father figure in Dakota's life: her stepfather Antonio Banderas.


Banderas, who was married to Griffith for 18 years until their recent divorce, has had nothing but glowing things to say about his stepdaughter's talent and promising career. He admitted that he felt Fifty Shades was a great opportunity for her and thinks she is going to be a superstar who can take on both comedic and dramatic roles.

But, up until now, he remained silent about whether he would actually be able to sit through Fifty Shades—unlike his ex Griffith, who has more or less said it will be a cold day in hell before she watches Jamie Dornan's sexy Christian Grey tie up her daughter and have his way with her.

The cat's out of the bag: you can add Banderas to the list of family member who refuse to see Fifty Shades of Grey.

Is he being unsupportive? Absolutely not. His reasons for avoiding the movie are totally understandable. When asked by ITV's Loose Women whether he had seen her movie, he had the following to say:

No, no, no. Dakota, when she was 4 years old, I changed her [diapers]. It's very weird to go and see the movie. If it was on television one day, I will pass.

Movies are make believe and I do find it a little odd that no one in Dakota's family will watch Fifty Shades. You have to wonder how the actress feels knowing she can't truly share her biggest career success thus far with the people who matter most to her.

Then again, she has made a point of telling her mom and dad NOT to watch the movie and I'm sure she respects the fact that the titillating content is not everyone's cup of tea.

Anyway, there you go: three of the most important people in Dakota's life are in total agreement about at least one thing: Fifty Shades is not on any of their must-see lists.

What do you think about Dakota's stepdad and other family members refusing to watch Fifty Shades of Grey?
