When she was asked at the Grammy’s if she had seen the movie, Melanie Griffith had clearly said that no mother would want to see their child having sex and especially when it is sex in the room of pain. Being a proud mother, she had replied that she already knows how great an actor Dakota is and doesn’t need to watch Fifty Shades of Grey to get an idea about it.
Dakota Johnson had made it very clear that her parents don’t get to watch the film. There was no way that she would allow them to watch her getting intimate and stripping naked in her first film. Melanie Griffith had gone visiting her on the sets when they were shooting regular scenes and she had seen the room of pain and that was where she drew the line.
