Dakota Johnson dropped out of school to pursue a career. We will see her in “Madame Web”

Born on October 4, 1989, as the daughter of actors Melanie Griffith (known, among others, from “Working Girl”) i Don Johnson (series “Miami Vice”), granddaughter of Alfred Hitchcock’s muse – Tippi Hedren, spent her childhood traveling from one film set to another. There was no single moment when she decided to follow in the footsteps of her loved ones. She felt like an actress from birth, and her favorite activities were watching her parents at work and watching movies. It started with “Mary Poppins”, “The Wizard of Oz” and “Home Alone”. Over time, it became a film classic.

First episode Dakota Johnson she starred as a 10-year-old in the film “The Madwoman from Alabama”directed by her mother’s then-partner Antonio Banderas.

“I played my mother’s daughter, and my younger sister Stella Banderas was there too. It was a family affair, but I took it very seriously. Then I didn’t work until I was 18 or 19. If it were up to me, I would have left school. But “my parents really wanted me to complete it, which was ironic because the first half of my life was constant traveling and working with a tutor,” she recalled years later.

Later, she played in “Need for Speed” and “Boys to Take”.

Her career was developing so well that eventually, despite the strong requests of her parents, especially her father, she dropped out of school and decided not to continue her studies at university. Her decision greatly disappointed Johnson. The actor did not hide his bitterness and publicly distanced himself from his daughter. The conflict escalated so much that the man stopped even paying for her maintenance.

However, it quickly turned out that Dakota’s decision was right. In 2010, she played in “The Social Network” by David Fincher. In the following years, she created supporting roles, including: in “An Even Longer Engagement” by Nicholas Stoller, “21 Jump Street” by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller and “Anarchy” by Michael Almereyda.

She first appeared in the foreground in 2015 in the film adaptation of the EL James saga “Fifty Shades of grey” about a student who enters into an unobvious erotic relationship with a billionaire. This decision was criticized by feminists and resulted in the Golden Raspberry Award for the worst actress. However, it resulted in lucrative contracts. The actress became a millionaire thanks to her appearances in the trilogy.

In the following years, she made choices that helped her avoid being pigeonholed. In 2015, Luca Guadagnino cast her in “Insatiable” alongside Ralph Fiennes and Tilda Swinton. A year later, she received a BAFTA award in the category of cinema’s greatest acting hope. In turn, in 2018, she played with Guadagnino again – this time in “Suspiria”.

Her acting was also appreciated in productions such as “The Daughter” and “Persuasion”.
