After the mother-daughter duo revealed their Oscar date night was going “pretty good,” the duo butted heads over Griffith’s decision not to see her starring role in the blockbuster film “Fifty Shades of Grey.” Griffith and Johnson’s dad, Don Johnson, have previously shared their plans to not watch their 25-year-old daughter portray Ana Steele on screen. Johnson has even called part of the BDSM-laced film “difficult to watch.”
“No,” Griffith, 57, told broadcaster Lara Spencer after being asked if she has plans to watch the flick. “I don’t think I can. I think it would be strange.”
“I think that one day you can see it,” Johnson replied.
When Spencer told Griffith she would be proud of her daughter’s portrayal of Steele in the movie, the veteran film star said she was confident of her daughter’s acting abilities without seeing her in her latest role. “She’s a really good actress. I don’t need to see that to know how good she is,” Griffith said.
“Alright, you don’t have to see it!” Johnson replied while rolling her eyes. “I’m like, 'You can see it,' and you’re like, 'No'… But I think it’s ok. It’s a movie and she knows that."
After Johnson made her upset known, Griffith said she would be willing to watch the romance film. “If she tells me to see it, I’ll see it,” she shared.
During the interview, Griffith revealed that she is delighted about her daughter’s recent achievements. “I don’t want to say I’m so proud, I’ve said it so many times it’s seems like its not enough, but I am so proud," she said.
Despite “Fifty Shades” director Sam Taylor-Johnson recently announced that the best-selling series’ last two installments, “Fifty Shades Darker” and “Fifty Shades Freed,” would be adapted for the big screen, Johnson said she is unsure if the sequels will be created. “It’s not definite,” Johnson said. “Well, I hope so. That would be nice."
