Don Johnson, Miami Vice star and father of Dakota Johnson, recently revealed that he cut her daughter off of the family’s funds after high school.
While appearing on an episode of Late Night With Seth Meyers, Don revealed that his family had a rule where they were allowed to stay on payroll only until high school and if they decided to go to college. Towards to end of Dakota’s high school experience, her father asked her if she wanted to start looking at colleges, but she told him that she did not want to go to college. When he asked her how she would manage her finances, she told him not to worry about it.
Shortly after graduating high school, the young Johnson got her first movie role in The Social Network, starring opposite Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and Justin Timberlake about the creation of Facebook. A few years later, she received her breakout role in the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy. She will soon be seen in films like The Lost Daughter and Am I OK?. She seems not to need an allowance now.
