As the daughter of actors Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, Dakota Johnson is certified Hollywood royalty. While the Fifty Shades of Grey actress may have spent her childhood under the radar, she has since hit the spotlight in a big way. From celebrity kid to blockbuster star, here's why all eyes are on Dakota Johnson.
Johnson comes from generations of Hollywood royalty. Not only are her parents easily recognizable stars, but her grandmother is legendary actress Tippi Hedren, who starred in Alfred Hitchcock's horror thriller, The Birds. But, as Johnson explained in a 2016 interview with Vogue, despite her A-list family, her childhood was relatively normal. Johnson grew up in Colorado with her parents, telling the outlet,
"I worked at the local store and did odd jobs like wash horses and babysit."
After Johnson's parents divorced in 1996, she split her time between Colorado and Los Angeles, where her mother lived with her husband, actor Antonio Banderas. Although it wasn't a typical upbringing, Johnson acknowledged,
"My parents' friends had children and we understood each other's lives. The way I grew up is the way I grew up. I didn't know different. In LA there's a wider awareness of celebrity families."
