Dakota Johnson Doesn't Regret 'Fifty Shades of Grey': 'I'm Proud' of The Movie

Dakota Johnson Doesn't Regret 'Fifty Shades of Grey': 'I'm Proud' of The Movie

Dakota Johnson takes the cover of Vogue UK‘s February 2015 issue, looking gorgeous in a Celine look.

Here’s what the 26-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On not regretting Fifty Shades of Grey: “I’m proud of Fifty Shades of Grey. I don’t need to distance myself from that. The more work I do, the more the general public sees the different things I can do. Do I think it opened doors? Yeah. More people know my name.”

On the industry: “Why isn’t my mother [Melanie Griffith] in movies? She’s an extraordinary actress! Why isn’t my grandmother [Tippi Hendron] in movies? This industry is fucking brutal. No matter how tough you are, sometimes there’s the feeling of not being wanted. It’s absurd and cut-throat. Whenever I have downtime, I’m unsure that I will ever work again. I don’t know what it is, but it’s a definite thing that happens to me.”

On what she looks for in roles: “In my real life, I don’t look pretty all the time. Nobody does. I love films that are honest… That’s the thing that turns me on.”

    I really like this girl and i really feel sad that she is on that cr*p 50sog

  • plez

    Your mother is not an extraordinary actress as you are not either. But that’s not the reason she is not in movies. It’s her terrible plastic surgery.
    See Mirren or Streep for extraordinary actresses.

  • Guest

    She is amazing and looks beautiful! More better and great films to come aside from 50 shades of crap!

  • alibi

    She will end up like her mother and her grandmother…terrible actresses…shes not a good as she thinks she is!!

  • disqus_tu0VPi4B9Z

    She made 50 shade and it remains to finish the trilogy . The problem is that: She was marked in that role. And is hard for actors get out from sagas.
    I know she is working in other films, and I wish her good luck in all future’s projects. She should ask Harrison Ford for advise. This man survived 2 sagas with incredible success!

  • suzybel

    I thought the role suited her and she did very well. I know a lot of people think the movie was crap but I rather enjoyed it and am looking forward to the sequels. I think Robert Pattinson was earmarked as Edward Cullen, I can’t see him in another role but Dakota, not so much.

  • Guest

    Why don’t u shut the fuck up and worry about that asshole rubbish actor Jamie Doormat who will never be nobody. All his nasty fans like you go trolling on all her articles, what u fucking jealous? The only person who need acting lessons is Jamie Doormat! Poor actor on top!

  • alibi

    Awww “guest” hit a nerve did I? Truth speaks for itself. Her mother and grandmother were never good actresses. Many more better established actresses than them out there. Couldn’t give a rats a** about Dornan nor that crap movie Fifty…piece of shite it was!

  • alibi

  • Guest

    Yeah sure that’s why you doormat fans are always up his ass like he is some kind of acting God, when in fact he is worst than Justin Bieber!

    As for Mel and Tippi well let’s see your ability to act since you like to talk shit behind your device. You think you are some kind of critic so let’s see what you can do bitch!

  • alibi

    Girlfriend you got issues. Only one talking about Dornan is you? I’m talking about why she thinks her mother and grandmother aren’t in movies…because they ain’t that good. And nope I don’t or can’t act thats why I don’t. ..but I can give an “opinion” like everyone else. Need to sort your issues out!

  • Guest

    The only issues need sorting is you bitch always trolling her fucking articles. Stick with your own idols the doormats and fuck off! 🖕

  • alibi

    Have you thought about Anger Management? ?? No amount of anger, cussing or cursing is going to change the fact she thinks her mother and grandmother have this entitlement to be in movies? They ain’t that good…now do yourself a favor and book in for some of those Anger Management classes!!

  • luna

    she wants her name to be known… that the big difference between her and JLAW or emma stone and others good actresses they want to be known for they’re work not! Greate she’s proud of what she achieve with a movie like Fifty Shades of Grey like seriously she had sex during an all movie making what a energic person

  • Guest

    If you would’ve thrown Tom hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jack Nickolson into Fifty shades it still would’ve failed. Bad book = bad movie. Not that hard to come to that conclusion. Her and Dornan were oh so stupid for taking that role. I’m sorry but they were stupid. Even if it didn’t ruin their careers anyone who read that script and thought it was good probably needs their heads examined. Sorry, not sorry because it’s the truth. Anyone with common sense knows it’s the truth. And that’s no offense to fifty readers. I don’t mean disrespect and sorry if it comes off that way. I like stuff that isn’t that great too. For some weird reason I love Anaconda. That movie was so bad, but every time it’s on I am quick to watch it. But I still admit it was crap

  • Guest

    Your hostility is astounding. Wow. I mean, I went through a Leonardo DiCaprio obsession for some time and when someone said he sucked or wasn’t good looking I didn’t get as nearly as worked up as you did here. Relax, it’s okay. Breathe. In, and out. In, and out. Now take a cold shower and chill out. You overreacted big time.

  • Guest

    I’d have to say that just by the fact that Dakota Johnson is wrong about ageism in Hollywood. How many older actresses have roles and get noticed?
    Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Halle Berry (in her 50s), Sandra Bullock, Kate Winslet, Marcia Gay Harden, Maggie Smith, Jessica Lang, Diane Lane, Courtney Cox, Jennifer Anniston, Mariska Hargitay, Vanessa Williams, Demi Moore, Jodi Foster I mean seriously, there isn’t an issue with ageism in Hollywood for women. She’s acting entitled. And her grandmother retired, chose to stop acting so I don’t know what she was talking about there. So Johnson literally put her foot in her mouth with that comment and she needs to hire new advisors because she seriously spoke stupidity there….

  • Guest

    SHUT THE FUCK UP HOE

  • Guest

    HEY ALIBI new account? BITCH GO EAT SHIT

  • alibi

    Bwahaha….this is hilarious…watching a meltdown happen right before our very own eys

  • Guest

    Lol pathetic. When someone proves you wrong you resort to delusional accusations. By the way, the way you write I have seen at least 6 accounts on here and many other sites that are clearly you. You use the same terminology in every single account. You know psychology 101. People with extreme paranoia and mental instabilities will accuse others of things they did themselves. It’s especially obvious when that person has absolutely no evidence of what they accuse of.

    You need help. And you need it now. I pray for you. 🙏

  • Guest

    Pray for yourself bitch.

  • Guest

    I see it Doesn’t take much for a hoe to laugh.

  • cris

    Did she exactly specify ageism? It’s could have been many other factors that the media made an issue about it. She didn’t wage a protest for all women, she was discussing her own personal experiences she saw her mother and grandma go through. As for all that other older actress still working, well kudos to them! They get 1-2 movie roles per year, they don’t break box office numbers and not all are leading roles.

  • cris

    That other commenter is right since you love trolling positive comments about Jamie Dornan and his wife and come here and disrespect Dakota and her family, you should worry about him and his medicore acting. He is lucky he has mental fans like you buying tickets and coloring books because this is the only big movie he will ever be apart of. Where was he when he was Dakota’s age? Partying, sleeping around and going drunk to auditions. Dakota knows what she wants and FS is just a stepping stone to bigger and better roles, can’t say the same for Mr GQ’s worst people of 2015 Jamie Dornan!

  • miles

    Exactly!!! How about that BAFTA nom too! 👏👏👏👏👏

  • Guest

    Use your head, they don’t break box office numbers because they don’t sell their soul for a pay check or fame. They’re in Oscar material films. Things made artistically. And I believe the word ageism was used in every article that posted about it. And her mother can’t get work because…. Well… She’s not exactly Meryl Streep. I named a long list of people. She named 2 people. Hence her head got a bit big for its britches.

  • Guest

    No. That defeats the purpose of prayer and faith. We pray for others not ourselves. That would make us arrogant and narcissistic.

  • cris

    Perhaps you should take your own advice and use your own head and read the actual source of this article…British Vogue where she never cited ageism. It is these D list sites putting words in her mouth, but from what I can see, you seem to believe everything you read on the Internet. Good luck with life.

  • Guest

    Lol no dear. Vogue is a highly credible newsource and yet it didn’t have any legal troubles stating she touched on ageism. Which in her words she was. She may not have said he word “ageism” but she said why couldn’t people like her mother and grandmother’s ages get roles? Meaning their age keeps them from getting hired

    Here’s a sentence “the Caucasian attacker was choosing African American victims” what part of that sentence says the attacker is racist? But it’s stating without using the word itself that he chose only one race to attack

    You seem to be really mad… Why?

  • Guest

    Why does it hurt so much that someone isn’t a fan of her’s??? That’s seriously a ridiculous thing to be upset over. Not everyone is a fan of Julia Roberts who is a much more qualified actress than her but those people still have a right to their opinions. Yeesh. Get that sand out of your vagina.

  • Guest

    Pray for yourself bitch

  • Guest

    OH SHUT THE FUCK UP YOU OLD HAG! THIS IS WHAT HIS FUCKING FANS DO IS TRASH DAKOTA TO MAKE HIM SEEM BETTER THAN HER. EVERY FUCKING DAY ON SOCIAL MEDIA THE TALK SHIT ABOUT HER AND IF SOMEONE LIKE ME AND OTHER IS DEFENDING HER THEN FUCK OFF YOU DON’T WHAT THE FUCK YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT! GET INFORMED BITCH!

  • Guest

    BITCH THE INTERVIEW IS FROM FUCKING VOGUE! AND YOU FIND JUST JARED CREDIABLE, GO WASH YOU STANK PUSSY BITCH.

  • Guest

    Clearly you don’t know how to read. I was talking about vogue did I even mention just Jared in my comment? No…. And calm down I don’t have anything against her. And if I don’t like her acting, I have that right. It’s not like I’m like you. Calling people names, a slut, whore, skank, bitch. You look like the bully to anyone reading because you’re the only one throwing nasty insults like a spoiled child pushing around someone smaller than him. Which I don’t have a nay or say about her acting. I haven’t seen her enough to form an opinion about her acting skills. As far as her mother goes… I’ve seen enough to develop an opinion to which I have a right to have. My opinion on Ms. Johnson here was how she sounded somehwy entitled or at least biased on her mother and grandmother’s lack in careers. She used the excuse of ageism when that isn’t initially the problem here. The problems are her mother is not much different from Pamela Anderson who was only ever known for her large breasts bouncing up and down while running down the beach on Baywatch. If you disagree that’s fine, but don’t get your panties in a twist just because I have a taste of my own. That’s uncalled for and quite frankly ignorant. Also calling me an old hag is priceless since you have absolutely no idea how old I am. Although, it gives me an idea how old you are. Possibly a child, and if not you certainly behave like one. Everyone has a right to an opinion, what is wrong is bullying behavior. That’s not an opinion it’s hateful and cruel. I have not once thrown a dark, nasty word such as you have. And yet you are so angry with me for expressing my right to indulge. You seem to want to live in a world where everyone thinks exactly a like, or more correctly, exactly like you. Which is logically impossible nor should anyone want a world like that. Boring it would be, if we all thought the same. There would be no need for art, music, literature because none of us would have individuality. So relax and learn to have a civil conversation like a rational, sane and normal adult. So long, I wish for the best for you. As well as prayer for peace and comfort.

    A bitch is a female of a dog or cat. If I had to choose, I’d be a dog. They’re more family oriented and very loyal.

  • Guest

    Shut the fuck up and go eat shit

  • Guest

    Omg get a life you nasty hoe! You sitting there bitching over a comment and nobody cares about. Go do something productive and wash your stank pussy!

  • Guest

    Wow… Not one word in that comment of yours, says you are a nice person. I doubt you have a dick, most men don’t feel the need to say it if it were true. Most males, don’t waste their time defending celebrities either. So either you’re a liar, or you’re just as guilty as what you’re accusing me of. I saw comments of yours in the past bullying an innocent girl about her looks. So I’m sorry, but I take what you say with a grain of salt. You responded to me, saying those things. But not to the person above calling people words like whore, skank, and whatever else…? I think you have your perception in knots and need to sort them soon. Have a nice life. 😊🙏

    Why aren’t you askin that question to the person who called me an old hag, bitch, whore, skank, and dirty pussy? She or he sounds far more hurt than I, who was only expressing my opinion without calling names. So…. I think you need to move on and… Well… As you said… Get laid.

    Coming from an actual guy… No dude says he has a big cock if he really did have a big cock. Confident people don’t brag about being confident. That usually means either A, you have a very small dick, or B, you don’t have a dick at all. Also if you are a dude, what kind of self respecting woman/girl would want to be with someone who is clearly sexist, like you?! I didn’t see nothing this person said was wrong. You people clearly don’t even have elementary school knowledge, because you can’t even read something without flying off the handle. Your all pissed at her, but you got the other person freaking out cussing that same person you find it necessary to be sexist towards, you say she’s hurt, but she’s not the one writing in all caps calling people names like cunt, and bitch and whatever else. So if you ask me, you two are the same person. Because no resoectful man would have done what you just did, nor tell one girl to quit being offended whe. There is someone else on this page who obviously throws a tantrum just because someone doesn’t like her favorite celebrity. I’m sorry, but dude, or chick YOU need to get a life, get some life counseling lessons and get the fuck off the internet. Clearly you don’t know how to use it, you need tl understand that when you put your opinion on the Internet, clearly someone is going to challenge you. So take your ass somewhere else… Small dick and all.

    I’m teenager, and that cris person, whether a guy or not… Probably is a 40 year old virgin. I wouldn’t worry too much about it. He or she needs therapy. I promise you.

  • NikelwitTheMikel

    Dude someone hacked her, I bet you looked at them too you fucking pervert!

  • NikelwitTheMikel

    How do you know this person was hurt? Just by text? Did you see their face when writing it??You can’t know the entire character of a person by text. That’s ignorant. Also, this person wrote back maturely to a person calling them names like hoe and shit. That’s not an opinion that bullying asshole! Are you fucking blind or stupid?

  • NikelwitTheMikel

    Dude or not, there is definitely a vagina there 😂😂😂😂

  • NikelwitTheMikel

    I’m 17, you act younger than me, psycho. all I have to do is trace your IP address. You need help and you need it big time.

  • NikelwitTheMikel

    Whoa what the fuck is wrong with you!?

  • NikelwitTheMikel

    Ummm no. But crazy people don’t know they’re crazy. Believe what you want but you got issues. The fact that you are willing to lower yourself this low…? Nothing can be worse. Not even someone logging into different accounts. That person is Jesus compared to you. You know what’s pathetic? the fact that you might be the same person as Cris… What other explanation would there be? You responded to me, but I was talking to Cris who should’ve gotten my notification… Not you. So you probably either stalk this place…? Or you’re that Cris person… Either one is bad so I suggest you look in the mirror before being all psycho. You are abusive and I reported your rape comment. I’m done. Peace out, yo.
