Dakota Johnson & Parents
Proud parents Griffith and Don Johnson walked the red carpet at the How to Be Single premiere held at the NYU Skirball Center. Griffith captioned a picture of her daughter and ex-husband, “@donjohnson and @dakotajohnson at her premiere of How to be Single…. She’s amazing! The movie is so funny, you laugh, you cry! Don is a #veryprouddaddy and I am a very #proudmama ?????.”
Griffith also shared a picture of herself with the Fifty Shades of Grey star. “My beautiful Dakota and Mama❤️ She comes on screen and there’s a breathless hush that comes over the audience,” she wrote. “She is magnificent! Go see ” How to be Single”❤️❤️❤️.”
Griffith even posted a snap of just her and the former Miami Vice star sharing a laugh on the red carpet as photographers snapped away. “MG and DJ having a good ole laugh!!” she captioned the candid shot,” she wrote. “? Enjoying Coqui’s success! #proudmommy #prouddaddy.”
When Johnson wasn’t with her family, she was taking pictures with her How to Be Single cast mates, including Leslie Mann, Rebel Wilson and Alison Brie.
In the movie, Johnson, Mann, Wilson and Brie all play single women in New York City. And, unlike many romantic comedies of that variety, their end game isn’t about not being single – which Johnson found refreshing.
“Society has become a little bit more accepting of young women not having to attach themselves to a man in order to have an identity,” Johnson told The Hollywood Reporter at the premiere. “The whole reason I wanted to do this movie was to make sure that women feel like it’s OK to just figure out who they are and what they want to do with their lives and their brains, and take time to cultivate their personalities and interests. That’s something I haven’t really seen in a romantic comedy these days.”
