As the female lead in the forthcoming mega-novel adaptation
Fifty Shades of Grey
, there's a whole host of expectation heaped on Dakota Johnson.
But there's one famous actor who's definitely got her back - her father, Don Johnson.
We recently spoke to the legendary actor about his forthcoming role in gritty noir thriller
Cold in July
, and he only had words of encouragement and praise for his daughter as she takes on her biggest role yet.
"I'm exceedingly proud of my daughter. She's a gifted, gifted actress. I don't speak about the obviously salacious nonsense. This is the family business – we all take on challenges and there’s no doubt in my mind that Dakota will be a major movie star. This is just another part of what I think will be a long and important career," he raved.
And as for whether Don's had a peek at the saucy script? He's keeping pretty schtum...
"I haven’t read it, and secondly, that gets into a character that it’s obviously inappropriate for me to talk about. *laughs*"
Cold in July hits UK cinemas 27 June 2014.
