Ever since we found out Dakota Johnson is dating fellow Hollywood kid Jordan Masterson, we figured there was no chance she would be single during the filming of Fifty Shades of Grey and therefore susceptible to falling for her co-star Charlie Hunnam ... right? Errr, well, we may have to rethink that assumption, because rumor has it Jordan has been encouraging Dakota to do something even scarier than sign a submissive agreement and NDA: Join him as a member of the Church of Scientology. Ahhhh!!!!
A source told Grazia magazine, "Jordan feels taking on such a huge role and the fame that goes with it will mean she needs some help -- and that's where Scientology could step into help her." Oh no. Sounds like a recipe for disaster. That is if Dakota isn't on the same page as Jordan.
I can understand anyone wanting to convert or adopt a new religion their partner identifies with. It's a completely legitimate thing couples do all the time. But at the same time, it's not something to be taken lightly. You've gotta be sure you're doing it for the right reasons ... and not being pressured into it. I also feel like it's something you have to want to do for yourself too, because if it is all about what your partner wants, you're not going to be fully committed to it.
In this case, we're not talking about just any religion either. We're talking about Scientology -- associated with all sorts of drama for Leah Remini, Tom Cruise jumping on couches, and Jordan's own father not having seen his kids for almost a decade, because he was ex-communicated by the church. Eek. Thus, it seems to follow that Dakota really shouldn't just decide to join up on a whim!
If she doesn't, and Jordan pushes, I really feel like their relationship could be doomed. And in that case, who's to say Ana may not end up falling for Christian after all?!
Do you think Dakota's relationship could fall apart because of Scientology?
