We are, but perhaps it is creeping into her medulla oblongata as well. You’d think that with her pedigree, Dakota Johnson would be more certain about her stint in Hollywood, but the child of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith (and the granddaughter of screen siren Tippie Hedren) doesn’t necessarily see it that way. She’s emerged as a huge star the last couple of years thanks primarily to the Fifty Shades of Grey series, but she had this to say about her career in Interview magazine:

“It seems like the world is so fast to move its interest to someone else. When I think about filmmakers and actresses that I have admired my whole life, I’ve admired their entire body of work. I have admired what they began with and what they’re doing now. And now I feel like there’s such a weird pressure to find the new face. I don’t get it at all. I want to see women evolve. I want to see a body of work. I want to see all of it.”

She has a People’s Choice Award now and is quickly becoming a household name, but she must remember her mother’s meteoric rise and subsequent fall as she has this to say about how fleeting Hollywood can be:


“I mean, I have such an obsession with making movies that I probably will always do that. But sometimes my life can feel so suffocating, and then it can feel so massive, like I don’t have a handle on it at all, and I don’t know where it’s going or what I’m going to do.”

And for the piece de resistance? This is what Dakota said when asked about her acting career:

“I still feel like I don’t know what I’m doing.”

We don’t either, Dakota.

We don’t either.
