PROVENANCE: Aspen, Colorado.
STATE OF MIND: The actress, the daughter of Hollywood veterans Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson—and granddaughter of Hitchcock muse Tippi Hedren—is glad to say that she was reared out West. “People from Colorado have a lot of pride, even if they just lived there a couple years when they were young, like me.”
GREY EXPECTATIONS: While she has already appeared in hit films such as The Social Network and The Five-Year Engagement, it’s her upcoming role as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey that has people buzzing. Johnson doesn’t anticipate talking to her parents about the nitty-gritty of her role, though: “I think that I would love to have them experience it with me, but I can’t really do that, just because of what it entails. I talk to them more about problems with my landlords. That’s my talking point with my family.”
ON THE FAST TRACK: With a new film, Need for Speed—based on the video games of the same name—out next month, Johnson is also anticipating next years saucy Fifty Shades release and the reaction of its fan base with a sense of humor. “I wonder if it will be, like, 40-year-old moms, which I am cool with. I love moms.”
