Dakota Johnson’s ‘SNL’ Promos — Hilariously Calls Out Melanie Griffith
Dakota definitely has some big shoes to fill after the SNL 40th anniversary special, but from her promos it looks like she will definitely do a great job! The stunner was joined by longtime cast member Taran for the promos and they immediately poked fun at Melanie who has not seen the film. Both Taran and Dakota took on nagging voices urging Dakota’s mom to see the film saying, “I’m really upset about it, It’s so not fair.” Taran even got in a slight diss saying “She is so not supporting you” to which Dakota said, “I know, mom please watch it!”
The stunner looked absolutely amazing wearing a red dress paired with bold red lipstick — definitely channeling her inner Anastasia. In the funnies part of the promos, Taran took on a Christian Grey air and seductively says, “Dakota, I have to ask you a question. I need you to be perfectly honest with me.”
He then takes out two very similar grey ties out from behind his back. Dakota plays her part perfectly, biting her lip and leading viewers to think that something in the Fifty Shades realm will happen. Taran then switches back to his normal voice and says, “I have a dinner party to go to tonight, which tie do you like better?”
The pair definitely made a great comedy team — and we can’t wait to see Dakota host on Feb. 28!
Dakota Johnson — Brings Mom Melanie Griffith As Date To The Oscars
Dakota proved that red is her color by wearing a stunning one shoulder floor length gown to the Oscars on Feb. 22, and as HollywoodLife.com previously reported, she brought her mother as her date!
This is not the first time that the famous mother-daughter pair walked the Oscars red carpet together. Back in 2000 when Dakota was just 10-years-old she accompanied Melanie to the big night — so sweet!
