Dakota Mayi Johnson is an American fashion model and actress. She is the daughter of actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. In 1999, she made her film debut in Crazy in Alabama (1999), but it wasn’t a hit. In 2006, she was voted Miss Golden Globe, a launching pad bestowed on off-spring of famous parents. As she got noticed she took up modeling assignments with IMG Models, MANGO brand’s jeans line and the fashion label, Wish.
Once she graduated from high school, she focused on her acting career. She started with the hit film The Social Network (2010). She appeared in three additional films: Beastly (2011), Chloe and Theo (2015) and For Ellen (2012). She went on to do minor roles in several 2012 films: Goats (2012), The Five-Year Engagement (2012) and the hit feature film version of the 1987 television show, 21 Jump Street (1987). She also won the female lead in Chris Nelson’s, film Date and Switch (2014).
Her first television show, Ben and Kate (2012) aired on Fox during the Fall 2012 season but was canceled in 2013. Dakota then resumed her feature film career with three high-profile films: Need for Speed, Cymbeline, Fifty Shades of Grey. Despite working in the industry for years, it was the role of Anastasia Steele which she played in the movie adaptation of the erotic novel 50 Shades of Grey that turned out to be Dakota’s ticket to fame.
Dakota was required to expose explicitly for the much hyped erotica Fifty Shades of Grey (2015). It was expected that the actress would resort to plastic surgeries in order to get the perfect looks and body before she bares it all on screen. Dakota however didn’t give in to any such pressures. No major changes were noted in her looks before she appeared in the film. Dakota must have learnt a lesson from the overdone cosmetic interventions that her mother Melanie Griffith had on her shortcut to beauty. Melanie instead ended up ruining her natural beauty!
Still there have been faint rumors about Dakota going for a nose job and a boob job. There have definitely been slight changes in her face and her body. But no one can confirm that the difference is due to cosmetic interventions. It might be that these changes have come naturally as the actress matured. Even if she did go for these rumored surgeries, she has managed not to repeat her mother’s mistake. Dakota’s is as natural and charming as ever.
