Dakota Johnson took her mom to the Oscars as they stepped out looking great for the 87th Annual Academy Awards. Melanie Griffith, the Fifty Shades of Grey actress’ mom, stunned the red carpet with her daughter, Fox News reports. Johnson, 25, wore an off-the-shoulder red Saint Laurent gown with a high-slit, and kept her long brown locks up in a ponytail.
What’s more important is that Dakota accessorized with Forevermark Diamonds earrings and bangles. Ryan Seacrest asked her if Griffith has seen the Fifty Shades movie or not. Her answer? “No way!”
“My mom is with me,” she said to Seacrest on the red carpet. “She’s my date.”
It wasn’t the first time the mother-daughter duo walked the Oscars red carpet together. They attended the awards show back in 2000, according to New York Daily News.
While Dakota Johnson takes her mom to the Oscars, people are questioning her love life. The actress is newly single after she split from her boyfriend Matthew Hitt sometime over the holidays. “Her life was getting too crazy and it wasn’t something that he wanted to be a part of,” an insider said.
A source close to the star said: “Sometime over the holidays, they broke up … it wasn’t a bad break.”
The brunette beauty hinted that her relationship had ended previously, when she was asked if her boyfriend liked the film, in which she stars as Anastasia Steele.
She said at the time: “My hypothetical beloved thinks it’s great. He’s really supportive. I don’t have a lot of time for a relationship. I’m too bustling sanctimonious and afterwards we go home and there’s no one.”
The actress may struggle to find a new love though, after she recently revealed she is going through a “phase” where she hates more things about men than she likes.
“I think it’s unsexy when a man chews with his mouth open or when a man is rude or wears fedoras. I hate fedoras. Oh God, I can find more things I hate about men than I like. I think it’s just a phase,” she said.
After Dakota Johnson takes her mom to the Oscars, she will be presenting during the live show, notes the Inquisitr. Up next, she’ll be flying to NYC to rehearse for her Saturday Night Live hosting gig on Sunday, Feb. 28.
