Dakota Johnson sick of Hollywood ageism
Dakota Johnson sick of Hollywood ageism

Nearly a year after her breakout role in Fifty Shades of Grey, Dakota Johnson is not having any second thoughts about starring in the erotic drama — but she does have some pointed words about how merciless Hollywood can be toward actresses.


In a preview of her cover interview for the February issue of British Vogue, Johnson says, “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.”


Johnson also weighs in on ageism in the entertainment industry — something she has seen up close as the daughter of Melanie Griffith and the granddaughter of Tippi Hedren.


“Why isn’t my mother in movies?” Johnson says. “She’s an extraordinary actress! Why isn’t my grandmother in movies? This industry is 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,” according to media reports. -abdullah
