Dakota Johnson, the soon-to-be star of the Fifty Shades of Grey film franchise, has been dating Scientologist and fellow actor Jordan Masterson for at least the last year.

Masterson, 27, has made guest-starring appearances on a number of TV shows, including George Lopez, 7th Heaven, Without a Trace and How I Met Your Mother. He also appeared in That 70s Show and Malcolm in the Middle, which starred his half-brothers Danny Masterson and Christopher Masterson, respectively. Johnson’s beau is best known, however, for his role of Dumptruck on ABC Family’s Greek and playing Mark in The 40-Year-Old Virgin.

The daughter of the rocky erstwhile Hollywood couple Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson, Johnson infamously struggled with substance abuse in her teens and served a stint in rehab. Masterson, however, was raised in the church of Scientology and still practices with his siblings, including his 25-year-old sister Alanna Masterson. Alanna, who’s close to her brother’s girlfriend, shared her support for Johnson’s coup in getting the Fifty Shades of Grey part on Instagram.

“Everyone is so proud of you Dakota. Well, except for Chris,” she captioned the photo.

Masterson has yet to publicly comment on Johnson’s upcoming turn as the passive partner to the dominant Christian Grey, who will be played by Sons of Anarchy's Charlie Hunnam. Scientology founder L Ron Hubbard once referred to pain and sex as “invented tools of degradation” and went on to claim that they “shrink people and cut their alertness, knowingness, power and reach.” But hopefully, like his sister, he won’t take issue with his longtime girlfriend’s S&M-filled role, which could ostensibly propel her into movie-star status.
