Dakota Johnson reportedly said that she’s “unsure of working again.” What does she mean? Will she leave “Fifty Shades Darker“?
No, she will still reprise her role for the upcoming sequel. However, the actress can’t deny the downside of her acting job. Despite coming from a family of stars, she mentioned that the industry can be “tough on actresses.”
According to US Weekly, this is what Dakota told UK Vogue Magazine:
“This industry is f—king brutal. No matter how tough you are, sometimes there’s the feeling of not being wanted. It’s absurd and cut-throat. Whenever I have downtime, I’m unsure that I will ever work again. I don’t know what it is, but it’s a definite thing that happens to me.”
The site reported that Dakota is the daughter of Melanie Griffith and the granddaughter of Tippi Hedren, who both starred in Hollywood films. Dakota mentioned that her mom’s an extraordinary actress but doesn’t have any movie project.
Movie Pilot noted that a lot of actors can relate to those insecurities. After starring in box-office hit films, some actors had bigger projects. Meanwhile, others were reported to experience “a dry spell.”
Nonetheless, Dakota admitted that “Fifty Shades” opened more opportunities for her.
“I’m proud of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey.’ I don’t need to distance myself from that. The more work I do, the more the general public sees the different things I can do. Do I think it opened doors? Yeah. More people know my name.”
“I don’t have any problem in doing anything. The secret is, I have no shame,” Dakota earlier mentioned.
