Dakota with the zinger! The ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ star made the late night host’s jaw drop when she jokingly asked him if he was her real dad. Click to WATCH!
Dakota Johnson, 25, put David Letterman, 67, in the hot seat during her Feb. 17 appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman. After he gushed about her mom, Melanie Griffith, 57, she hit him with the shocking question: “Are you my dad?” That Dakota is one funny girl!
Dakota Johnson On David Letterman: ‘Are You My Dad?’
“My mom on the way here — I was on the phone with her — and she told me to tell you she loves you,” Dakota told David. “She really meant it.”
David started to fawn over Melanie and told her that he “really loved your mom.”
OMG. Talk about something we didn’t see coming! David was just as surprised and turned red in the face. He responded, “Whoa, boy!” Then, he told Dakota and the audience, “Nah, of course you’re just kidding. No, that’s just a joke.”
As we all know, Dakota’s father is actor Don Johnson, 65. Melanie and Don were married in 1976 before splitting later that year. They remarried in 1989 and divorced in 1996.
Dakota went fully nude for her racy role as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, but not in one particular scene. For the infamous whipping scene towards the end of the film, that was not Dakota’s bare butt!
“There was a close up of a bum getting hit with a belt. That was not my bum, because I didn’t want to get hit with a belt,” Dakota told Daily Star.
Well, we don’t exactly blame Dakota for not using her own butt for that scene. It was pretty darn brutal!
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Dakota’s interview? If Fifty Shades of Grey doesn’t work out, then she definitely has a career in comedy!
