Dakota Johnson's Mom Finally Breaks Down & Watches 'Fifty Shades' (Sort Of)

Dakota Johnson's parents weren't shy about admitting they had zero interest in seeing her play Anastasia Steele, a character who spends a lot of time naked and tied up by Jamie Dornan's Christian Grey. But Melanie Griffith revealed she has finally seen Fifty Shades of Grey -- well, parts of it, at least.


While attending Stella McCartney's pre-fall collection, Griffith told E! News that, yes, she has seen "a little bit" of one of the biggest blockbuster hits of 2015. But she still can't bring herself to watch any scene in which her 26-year-old daughter is having fake sex with Dornan -- sorry, no can do.

Well, at least she won't miss out on Dakota's next big hit, How to Be Single, which is set to be released before Valentine's Day.

I can't say I blame Melanie for feeling uncomfortable about watching her daughter partake in a BDSM lifestyle on screen. As a veteran actress, she knows love scenes are anything but sexy, but they sure do look real, don't they? And I can't imagine why Melanie would have any interest in suspending disbelief in order to buy the idea that Dakota is enjoying violent sex.

It's a shame that her parents are missing out on the film that put their little girl on the map, but the good news is that her turn as Anastasia has helped launch Dakota's career, and they've been able to enjoy other successful films, including Black Mass with Johnny Depp, that she has been a part of since Fifty Shades.

The bad news is, of course, that Dakota is about to film Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed back to back. It's going to be a long couple of years for poor Melanie.
