From a younger age, Dakota Johnson knew she wished to be an actress.
This reality was confirmed when her father, Don Johnson, appeared on the March 9 episode of Late Evening With Seth Meyers and recalled a dialog he had with the 31-year-old star again when she was in highschool. The subject got here up after Seth Meyers requested if Dakota ever does or did ask Don for profession recommendation.
“That bus left. She would not want any recommendation from me,” the Knives Out alum replied. “The humorous factor about her is—we have now a rule within the household that, you realize, in case you keep in class, you get to remain on the payroll. So, you go to varsity, you get to remain on the payroll. In the direction of the top of highschool, I went to her and I mentioned, ‘So, do you wish to go go to some schools?’ Or one thing like that. And she or he was like, ‘Oh, no. I am not going to varsity.'”
Don informed his daughter this meant she “will not be on the payroll anymore” and requested how she was “going to handle.” However Dakota merely informed him, “Do not you are worried about it.”
He actually did not must. “Three weeks later she had nailed down that half in David Fincher‘s The Social Community,” Don mentioned, “and the remaining is, shall we embrace, cinema historical past.”
