Family Of Actresses: Why Melanie Griffith Has Every Right To Be Proud Of Her Daughter Dakota
February 7, 2018 12:12 By Fabiosa
Rumor has it that actress Melanie Griffith is extremely proud of her daughter (who is also an actress) Dakota Johnson.
And with good reason, the women of the Griffith lineage have obviously been blessed with great acting talent: Starting from Tippi Hedren, the actress who married a child actor Peter Griffith, to the award-winning actress Melanie Griffith, to the latest actress in the Griffith family tree - Melanie's daughter.
Dakota Johnson, who many may recognize from her role as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades movie series, on-screen greatness has fully been exemplified.
Sure, Dakota Johnson is all the rave now, but Melanie Griffith has given us so much on-screen greatness that it would be remiss of us to ignore her accomplishments.
Melanie Griffith's greatest hits
Melanie Griffith is a screen legend in her own right. From playing iconic roles to bagging awards and nominations, Griffith has done it all.
It's hard to forget her role as Tess McGill, a secretary with a brilliant idea in Working Girl (1988), for which she bagged a Golden Globe for Best Actress; or before that, her role as Suzie in Joyride (1977).
There is also her role in the psychological thriller Pacific Heights (1990) where she plays one half of an unmarried couple who go through an ordeal with a dangerous tenant.
Griffith obviously has a versatile range of acting and it would seem, she has passed it on to her daughter - Dakota Johnson.
Melanie Griffith: so proud of Dakota
Griffith, it turns out, is Dakota Johnson's biggest fan.
For evidence, one only needs to visit her Instagram account where she gushes over all things about Dakota. From headshots to awards, Melanie is highly supportive, obviously proud of, and openly expressive about Dakota’s achievements.
The two are obviously close, as they have been from the very beginning, with Dakota tagging along to award shows from childhood. However, it would seem that mother-daughter closeness appears to be a common trait of the Griffith women.
Tippi’s 87th birthday
Melanie is close to her mother, Tippi Hedren, as well. On her birthday last year, she posted a picture of her mother about to blow out the candles on her cake with the caption:
My beautiful mother, Tippi at 87! Dinner with her grandchildren…
Apparently, everyone was present to celebrate with her mother Tippi, including Dakota. It’s beautiful to see mother-daughter bonding at this level, and we do hope they remain close.
Regardless of how you look at it, Griffith has every reason to be proud of Dakota Johnson, for picking up the family acting baton and running with it. And we can’t wait to see what comes next, from both of them.
