Dakota Johnson has been cast as Anastasia Steele in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation and by the nature of the books, I can only imagine the types of sex scenes she’ll have to shoot every day. So considering that their daughter will pretty much be getting naked and having sex on camera every other day for a couple of months, how do you think that Dakota’s famous parents, Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, are reacting to this news?
Let’s call a spade a spade – Fifty Shades of Grey is practically softcore porn and not always that soft -with an underlying current of BDSM. While I can’t claim to understand the popularity of the novels, they did start off as self-published fan fiction before it became the worldwide phenomenon it is today, and raunchy is an understatement to describe the story
Obviously, I imagine the film will be toned down compared to the book since there’s no way the studio would be comfortable having an NC-17 rating for a movie they’re trying to turn into a blockbuster. But even then, it’s STILL focused on BDSM and sex, although the filmmakers will inevitably try to turn it into a love story. I am curious to see how it all plays out, but I can’t imagine that Melanie and Don are very happy that their daughter will be taking off her clothes and having sex on camera for an entire movie.
Can you imagine? That too, they’re celebrity parents, which means they will constantly get asked about their daughter and her role in Fifty Shades of Grey. When asked if they enjoyed the movie, what on earth will they even say? ‘Uh no, it was terrible seeing my daughter naked and having sex the entire time.’ Obviously, that would be the rational response, and I doubt they will even see it, to be honest.
What do you guys think Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson think of their daughter signing up for Fifty Shades of Grey? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
