'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Cast, News & Release Date: Don Johnson Continues to Talk About Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele in '50 Shades'
Don Johnson continues to talk about his daughter's highly anticipated movie, "Fifty Shades of Grey."
Don, 64, recently spoke to The Telegraph about his daughter Dakota Johnson, 24, in her upcoming part as Anastasia Steele. The role is Dakota's biggest yet, but her father thinks this is just the beginning.
"[It will be] a blip on her career because she's going to be a significant actress for many years to come," the veteran actor said.
The movie, which hits theaters Feb. 13, has garnered piles of attention, as it is an adaptation of E.L. James' bestselling erotic novel of the same name. Don, however, has not picked up a copy.
"I wouldn't read that," he said. "I read 'The Story of O' in the '60s, and that pretty much covered it."
The "From Dusk Till Dawn" actor also discussed Dakota's big role on "Good Morning Britain" on Monday.
"This is what we do, and I am absolutely certain that Dakota will take a piece of material and a character which a lot of people might imagine could be inappropriate in some ways and turn it into something spectacular," Don said. "Speaking like a proud father and a seasoned professional, I can tell you that she is a gifted, gifted actress, and this will just be one part in a long line of tremendous performances in her career."
In addition to not wanting to read the book, Johnson has no desire to see the film.
"It's not something that I would go to anyway," he told The Telegraph last week. "I probably will not see it just because it's not a movie I would see. I've never seen 'The Vampire Diaries.' I've never seen 'Twilight.' It's in a category of films that I just wouldn't be interested in."
"Fifty Shades of Grey" also stars Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey, Victor Rasuk as Jose, Eloise Mumford as Kate, Marcia Gay Harden as Dr. Grace Trevelyan Grey and Rita Ora as Mia Grey.
