Dakota Johnson has starred in a large number of titles recently, but there is one in particular that embarrasses her to this day.
After minor roles in several films, Dakota Johnson rose to fame in 2015 for starring in Fifty Shades of Gray and the subsequent sequels. Since then, the actress rose to fame and worked in a large number of films.
In 2016, she led the cast of How to Be Single, a romantic comedy directed by Christian Ditter, and in 2018 she took on the lead role in the remake of the horror film Suspiria, directed by Luca Guadagnino.
Each and every role boosted Johnson’s career, which today has become one of the most in-demand names in Hollywood. But even today and with all the success on his back, there is a role that to this day is somewhat embarrassing.
The Fifty Shades of Gray film saga did not achieve the same success as the literary saga on which it is based, written by E.L. James. Despite not having critical approval, the films became a box office success.
Due to the great exposure of the films, thousands of doors opened for Melanie Griffith’s daughter. However, the role of Anastasia Steele isn’t exactly one the actress is particularly proud of.
During an interview, she was asked if she regrets making the Fifty Shades movies. “It comes in waves. But this project is not going to be my swan song. It has put my life on a path I had no intention of following, but I am proud of it,” she Johnson responded. At the same time, she recognized that having starred in these films allowed her to do different projects. “In the end, Fifty Shades left me in a world that I really wanted to be in,” the actress said. She also spoke about her desire not to be pigeonholed into “sensual” roles, admitting that she wants to take on other types of challenges.
