Dakota Johnson Shares the Advice She's Gotten From Her Famous Family!

Dakota Johnson learned from the best before stepping into the spotlight!

The 28-year-old actress’ famous family – mom Melanie Griffith, dad Don Johnson and grandmother Tippi Hedren – offered her plenty of advice before she started her acting career.

Tippi in particular set an example for the ladies of the family when she refused to work with Alfred Hitchcock who mercilessly harassed her.

“She became an example of what to never let happen in my life. Hopefully, I’ve passed that on to Dakota — to be strong in your work and in yourself,”
Melanie explained to THR.

Dakota added, “I was taught self-respect and grace and strength. Never before this moment did anyone in my family [explicitly] say, like, ‘Be careful.’ Sometimes, powerful men in Hollywood will try to whatever.”

Check out the family play a round of Fishing For Answers below…

    i thought DJ had another wife and family? i know Dakota is his daughter but why not just the 3 women for this? seems odd he’s in a family shot with his ex wife and ex MIL

    Nepotism. Dakota can’t act to save her life. Her acting is robotic.

    She sure didn’t get her grandmothers looks by any means. Tippi was a knockout back in the day…and for her age…still is. Drop dead beautiful in “Marnie” “Birds” and still awesome looking in her cameo role in “Pacific Heights” which she stared with her daughter Melanie. At 87 she’s still around…great genes!

    He does. From what I’ve read/seen the families are all very close and accepting of one another for the kids. The kids consider themselves brothers and sisters, not half or step brothers and sisters.

    that’s pretty nice, if true. not many families can be so close, especially hollywood ones
