Dakota Johnson Had the Best Response After Being Cut Off From Family Payroll

This fact was confirmed when her father, Don Johnson, appeared on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” Tuesday night and recalled a conversation he had with the 31-year-old star back when she was in high school. The topic came up after Seth Meyers asked if Dakota ever does or did ask Don for career advice.

“That bus left. She doesn’t need any advice from me,” the “Knives Out” alum replied. “The funny thing about her is – we have a rule in the family that, you know, if you stay in school, you get to stay on the payroll. So, you go to college, you get to stay on the payroll. Towards the end of high school, I went to her and I said, ‘So, do you want to go visit some colleges?’ Or something like that. And she was like, ‘Oh, no. I’m not going to college.'”

He told his daughter this meant she “won’t be on the payroll anymore” and asked how she was “going to manage.” But Dakota simply told him, “Don’t you worry about it.”

“Three weeks later she had nailed down that part in David Fincher’s ‘The Social Network,'” Don said, “and the rest is, shall we say, cinema history.”

Dakota Johnson’s Best Looks

Dakota actually landed her first role before the age of 10. She appeared in the 1999 film “Crazy in Alabama,” which starred her mom, actress Melanie Griffith.

And after “The Social Network,” she went on to act in a number of other films, including the Fifty Shades series, “How to Be Single,” “Suspiria” and “Bad Times at the El Royale.”

“She doesn’t really call me for advice,” Don said. “She calls me to say, ‘Gosh, I would see you, but I’ve got three pictures I’m shooting at the same time.'”

In addition to talking about Dakota, Don discussed appearing in the Emmy-winning series “Watchmen” and working on Kenan Thompson’s new show “Kenan.”
